Frequently Asked Questions

We encourage you to read through these questions and answers for a more in-depth look into what a KECamps – Club Partnership looks like. Keep in mind that these are somewhat general in nature and we pride ourselves on being able to customize our program to each unique club location. We hope you will pursue a partnership with us and should you be interested, we look forward to discussing your club’s specific needs!

Our club already has a golf camp, tennis camp and/or swim team. Would these programs still be able to operate if we added a KECamps camp?

Absolutely. Our programs are designed to enhance the club’s existing programs by introducing golf and tennis to children for the first time. This will lead to increased participation and interest throughout the year. It also allows children who do not want to attend a full time golf or tennis camp to gain exposure to these activities in a more recreational setting. We can be flexible in our daily schedule to accommodate any children who would like to participate in both the club’s swim team and our camp.

We are closed on Mondays. Can our camp still run five days a week?

Yes!  We can still use the club’s facilities in coordination with club management. Being open five days a week allows working families to still have their child attend camp without having to search for a different Monday option. We have learned that this increases enrollment and is a tremendous value member service for families.  If you cannot provide limited use of the facilities for camp’s purposes on Mondays, we are able to operate a Tuesday-Friday camp instead.

What happens on rainy days?

We need the club to provide a covered area in case of inclement weather. Our rainy day programs are equally active, creative and fun!

How do families register and pay for camp?

All of our families use our customized online registration system which allows them to enter their family, camper and medical information, permission forms and payment in a secure environment.

Who are you hiring to work at camp?

All of our Camp Directors are local teachers, educators, or professionals with extensive experience working with children. All of our Camp Counselors have completed at least one year of college or equivalent and are most often studying elementary education. Staff members go through a thorough hiring process which includes 2-3 interview rounds, 3 reference checks, background check, sex offender check and a training in child abuse prevention and reporting procedures. In addition, all staff members are CPR and First Aid certified and attend a pre-camp training.

Is there a deadline for deciding to use KECamps?

Yes, we must know that you would like to use our services by March 1st. In our experience, deciding any later than this will be detrimental to the potential success of camp as it is late in the season for staffing, planning, etc.
