Club Registration Requirements
If you are not a Club Member of Kennett Square Golf & Country Club, you must be “Sponsored” by a Club Member in order to register your child for camp. The Sponsoring Member will not be charged in association with KSGCC Day Camp in any way, however, he or she must be aware that you are listing him or her as your Sponsor. This policy allows Kennett Square Golf & Country Club to ensure that all Non-Members attending camp are associated with a Club Member in some way.
Age Range: 4 - 10
All campers must be at least 4 years old by the first day they attend camp. In addition, campers must be potty-trained and able to handle a full day program.
Each day of camp will be a new and exciting experience for our campers as no two days with KE Camps are exactly alike! Our days begin with Hello Camp, a morning meeting of sorts where, through an assortment of organized activities, campers and staff get to know each other, review the day’s schedule and sing our special camp song! Similarly, we will end our days with Goodbye Camp, a time for wrap-up activities and reflections, SMILE Bands, snacks, and “see you later’s”. The bulk of camp will be spent participating in a wide variety of activities throughout the day that may include:

Lunch & Snacks
The club will provide a delicious and kid-friendly lunch for every camper each day. If you would prefer to pack your own lunch for your child, please do so in a cooler or backpack. A snack will be served each afternoon to all campers. We encourage you to pack some extra snacks for your child as well.
Please note that we are a “nut aware” camp. We ask that you do not pack any food for your child that contains nuts. Likewise, the lunches and snacks served by the club will not contain any nuts. If your child has a food allergy and you have questions about this, please do not hesitate to contact us.
KE Camps requires all campers to wear our official camp shirt each day of the week. Please leave all electronic devices and cell phones at home. Campers should dress in comfortable clothing and tennis shoes. Additional shirts may be purchased at camp. Camp is a place to un-plug! Please pack the following items in a labeled bag or backpack:

We will, however, always offer a credit towards a future week (if space is available) or for next summer.
Covid-19 - Safety Considerations
Here is a run-down of how we will mitigate risk as much as possible at camp this summer:
- New Check-In Procedures that will include a drop-off system whereby parents are not entering our physical camp space, campers are being visually screened for signs of illness, each camper’s temperature will be checked via non-contact thermometer and each camper will sanitize their hands upon entry to camp
- Clear policy asking anyone who has been feeling ill or has been exposed to someone who is ill to remain home from camp – in fact, we ask that you monitor your child over the weekend prior to each week of camp to ensure they are seemingly healthy! Should your child be feeling under the weather in any way, they should not attend camp.
- Program adjustments to allow for as many outdoor activities as possible (even more so than usual!) and physical distanced when possible
- Hand-Washing or Hand-Sanitizing to take place:
- Upon entry to camp
- Before and After every snack/meal
- After activity periods (as deemed appropriate by staff)
- After using the restroom
- Before checking-out of camp
- Extra cleaning of camp spaces, surfaces and supplies
- Finally, and most importantly, we will think of our camp as its own unit – within our unit, we will do our best to organize activities to keep physical distancing in place as much as possible. However, there are undoubtedly going to be parts of our camp day when campers and staff will end up being less than 6ft apart. During these times, staff will be wearing a friendly cloth face mask. *Face Mask policy subject to easing as time goes by and certain restrictions are lifted. Our camp will do our best to keep physical distance from all other personnel/patrons of the club. We are uniquely positioned to do this last part well as our camps are generally quite small in size to begin with. By sending your child to camp, you are choosing to expose them to this small unit or family for the week. This is a great thing when it comes to limiting exposure and easily performing contact tracing, if necessary.

Meet Your Camp Director
Hello Campers and Families,
I'd like to take this moment to welcome you into my camp family. I currently work in the Avon Grove School District and every day when I wake up during the school year, I am so excited to get to work to learn with my kids. As we are excitedly preparing for camp and all of the fun we will be having this summer, I am already anxiously awaiting meeting all of my campers who will share in all of the adventures that we will take as a camp family. Friendships will be formed, we will learn from each other, we will have new experiences, and most importantly, we will have fun!
As a certified local teacher, I have my master's degree in Curriculum and Instruction with a concentration in Applied Behavior Analysis, and I have become entrenched in the local community through my work with the Garage Community and Youth Center. I have also spent a summer serving as the Arts and Crafts Coordinator at the Phoenixville YMCA. I have lived all over Chester County, and as a Chester County native, I have had the
opportunity to learn about, experience, and enjoy the Pennsylvania wildlife, our local history, and the rich culture of our communities. Through my professional work, volunteer work, education, and life experiences, I have really dedicated myself to working with kids of varying ages and helping them to discover the possibilities of who they can be.
In my spare time, I enjoy crafting, swimming, reading, taking dance classes, singing and practicing yoga. I currently live with my cat named Stormy, who enjoys watching me practice yoga out on the deck when its nice outside. I am excited to share some of these hobbies among many of your more traditional camp experiences with the campers and learn from them what some of their unique interests and talents are. I view all experience as an opportunity for growth, and this summer will be sure to provide many experiences and opportunities for all.
Looking forward to a great summer of camp!
