RIDGEFIELD UPDATES AND INFORMATION

Dates and Times - Drop Off and Pick Up CHANGES

Drop off and pick up will be in the bottom level of the Ridgefield United Methodist Church.  When you arrive in the parking lot off to the left is a driveway that leads down a small hill to the entrance to the bottom portion of the facility. This is where drop off and pick up will be, not the main entrance of the building. 


Camp Hours are M-F  9am-4pm with free early drop off starting at 7:30 am. After care is offered from 4pm-5:30pm for $39/week/camper.


Camp dates: June 17th-August 23rd with no camp July 4th or July 5th (we will make updates to the schedule below to reflect the no camp days).


The sign in and sign out procedures will be done by the camp staff. We are putting effort into becoming a paperless organization. We are in a learning phase so your patience is much appreciated.

Daily Themes

Each week has an awesome theme to keep kids interested and looking forward to camp.  Portions of our day have themes as well.

What to Pack Everyday

  • Lunch and two snacks
  • Water Bottle
  • Sunscreen
  • Layers
  • On hot days, we may advise to bring swim wear for time in the sprinklers


We will inform you if other items are needed for certain events


Snack Shack

We offer a variety of items in our snack shack. Snack shack will be available everyday and items are between .25-$1.50 depending on the item.  Pre-paid snack shack cards will be available to purchase in any increment. You can set a daily limit and even set parameters on what your camper is allowed to purchase. 


Snack shack funds are not required, we offer it because kiddos like it, especially on movie day.


Proceeds from the snack shack will be put toward offering scholarships for families in need.

Personal Belongings

We will offer personal time each day  and do not mind if campers bring their own things to camp for during those times. Each camper and parent assumes the risk of personal belongings in case of damage, loss or theft. SHAPE NW will not be responsible for any items brought to camp. If a personal belonging becomes a distraction or is deemed inappropriate, we may ask a camper to no longer bring their things.

Policies: Refund, Late Fees, Bullying

Our full refund policy can be found online. Refunds for weekly or daily rates must be requested ten days in advance, if you need to switch weeks, a $25 fee may be assessed. $39 registration fees are non-refundable. For the Unlimited Summer Fun option, once your child has attended their first day of camp, no refunds or pro-rations will not be allowed.


The scheduled camp hours are from 9am-4pm. For the courtesy of our coaches, please make it your best effort to be there by 4pm. Late fees may be assessed at the rate of $15 for the first 10 minutes and $1 fee for every minute thereafter. All late fees are paid directly to the coach that is on duty. If you are late, please be proactive in paying your fees and pay your coach that day. Checks can be made out directly to the coach on site.


We have adopted a strict no bullying policy. If for some reason a child has been involved in hitting or biting another camper, or has demonstrated blatant disrespect to others including our coaches, the parent will be notified and asked to pick their child up from camp. Parents will be asked to find an alternative option for their summer needs even after only a single incident depending on the severity of that event. Refunds are not given for kids who are dismissed from camp for bullying or disrespect. Parents, please keep in mind that many days, campers will be off in the wilderness or on a lake, so if your child has recently been disciplined for behavioral issues this may not be the right camp environment as we expect full cooperation for the safety of your kids as well as others.
