Parent Handbook

SNACK SHOP – Campers visit the Snack Shop everyday while they are at camp. They will go with their cabin group and be able to enjoy a treat. Snack Shop money must be paid in advance when you register. Campers will not be able to pay with cash. The Snack Shop money will be converted into a card where we will keep track of what your child spends. At the end of the week, if there is any money left we will refund it to your credit card. Most treats are between $.50-$2.00. In addition, we sell clothing, souvenirs, toys, and jewelry. These items range in price from $3.00-$35.00. A usual visit to the Snack Shop consists of 1 drink (soda, juice, water) and 1 treat (ice cream bar, candy bar). The Snack Shop will be open at parent pick up as well.

SWIMMING – No swimming is allowed at Camp Li-Wa. We will have water games.

CABIN BUDDY REQUESTS – During registration, you may request a cabin buddy for your camper. Please do so at least a week in advance of when camp starts. We will do our best to honor your request if it is logistically possible.

PHOTOGRAPHS – Many pictures of campers are taken throughout the week. It is our assumption that most parents love to see their children in camp brochures and slide shows. If you do not wish your child’s picture to be taken, please select that option when registering.

COSTS AND REFUNDS – A $50 non-refundable deposit is required at registration. This will hold your child’s spot for camp. The remaining balance is due prior to drop off. If your child is not able to attend camp, you can receive a refund, less the deposit.

CAMP REGISTRATION — Register for camp online at CampDoc.com. You can access the registration button from our website under the Program you wish your camper to attend. Registration requires a non-refundable $50 deposit. The remaining balance must be paid no later than two weeks prior to the camp session. During the registration process, you will add money to your camper’s snack shop account (campers are not able to use cash in the snack shop). Additionally, all health forms must be completed.  If these items are not completed prior to check in, expect a longer wait time at drop off.

HEALTH — A certified health care provider is on site to address the health and safety concerns of each camper and to observe medication distribution. Medication must come to camp in the doctor prescribed bottle with clear instructions from your doctor. Li-Wa’s insurance policy covers every camper as secondary coverage. Your family insurance policy applies first for any medical needs. A number of staff members are trained in First Aid and CPR.

MEDICATIONS — If your camper needs to take medications at camp you must turn them in when you register to the camp nurse. All prescription medications must be in a PHARMACY LABELED container with the campers name on it. Loose pills will not be accepted.

PARENTAL PICK UP – To ensure your child’s safety, only the camper’s parent/guardian may pick him/her up at the end of camp or for an early departure. If you desire a friend or relative to give your child a ride, Camp Li-Wa must receive a letter – signed by the camper’s parent/guardian – stating the name of the adult who is authorized to pick up the child and when the child should be released into his/her care. You may email this information to info@campliwa.org or turn it in personally. Every visitor must check-in at the office and all campers leaving the premises during camp time will need to be checked out at the office. We understand that sometimes children will need to be picked up for sporting or other events in the afternoon. If you need to pickup for activities, you must pick up at meal times only.  Then, the campers may return at the following meal time. 

OFFICE HOURS:  8:30 a.m. – 5:30 during summer season.
