Is Camp Nut Free? .We are indeed a NUT FREE camp. We just want to have fun so can’t take the risk of an unknown nut allergy among our campers or staff.

How do you handle allergies? .Prior to camp beginning parents will be asked to complete paperwork with important information. Nurse Brennan ensures that every adult who will be in contact with your child will be aware of any allergies/health conditions.

Will there be field trips? .Absolutely! Field trips are the highlight of our camp!

My child is attending half days. Will they still be able to go on the field trips? .The more the merrier! Trip days generally mean a later pickup time. We will inform you in advance so you can plan to work/relax/grocery shop/catch up on your favorite show, for a little longer that day.

Where will camp be held? .This year we are upgrading and camp will be held in the luxurious, air conditioned Annex building!

Will my kid have to wear uniform? .For field trips we do require that all staff and campers wear the “Bradford Bears Summer Camp 2024” that we will provide for them. Every other day they should wear comfy shoes and clothes that they don’t mind getting messy. Think paint, glue, tie dye messy!

What is the attendance policy? .Kids rarely want to miss a day of camp, but life happens, and we get that. Out of town visitors, surprise tickets to a show, long weekend at the beach – all perfectly good reasons to miss a day at camp. We do ask that you try to let us know ahead of time.

What about “tardy”? . Drop off time begins at 8:30. In a perfect world every kid should be settled into the camp day by 8:40 but it isn’t always easy to run a tight morning schedule in the summer! But if your kid misses out on their favorite camp activity because you were busy watching Disney channel, they are gonna be mad!

Early Pick up? . Yes, it’s possible to pick up your child early occasionally but please know they may not want to leave!

Late Pick up? . Ummmm…… yeah please be on time to pick up your child at the end of their camp day. We get that sometimes things come up and if they do, please send an email.

What if I change my mind? -Please let us know as soon as possible. We do have a waitlist!
