Activities

Each day of camp will be a new and exciting experience for our campers as no two days with KECamps 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:

Wacky Wednesdays

Every Wednesday at camp is a wacky one with a different festive theme – a true highlight of each week! Check out this summer’s Wacky Wednesday Calendar!

Thankful Thursdays

We are excited to announce the return of Thankful Thursdays into our camp program! In true camp spirit, every Thursday campers will have the chance to give back to their community by working together on a simple, fun and rewarding community service project. Check out this summer’s Thankful Thursday Calendar!

Lunch & Snacks

The club will provide a delicious and kid-friendly lunch each day. Please pack a morning and afternoon snack for your child.

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.

Packing List

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:

Swimsuit
Tennis Racquet (Optional)

Payments, Cancellations, Refunds

Registration & Payments

Registration for Summer 2020 will open on February 3, 2020 and will continue until we are full.  So, you may add additional weeks as the summer goes on. You must be enrolled in advance, however, in order to attend camp. We are happy to accept online registrations up until the night before the start of each week of camp, provided that space is available.

Full payment is due upon registration.  This includes a one-time non-refundable registration fee of $40 which includes 2 camp t-shirts. We accept American Express, MasterCard, Visa and Discover.

If your child has special needs or will require extra assistance while at camp, please contact us before you enroll to discuss!

Cancellations & Refunds

All requests for cancellations or changes must be made in writing to our office via email at info@kecamps.com. Cancellations made before June 14, 2020 will be refunded in full (less the registration fee).  After that, there are no refunds. 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

Dear Camp Families,

The time has come for another awesome summer at Camp North Hills! My name is Camden Keene, and I am thrilled to be returning to my sixth summer at Camp North Hills and third summer as camp director.

I worked in the North Hills Club Kid’s Club from 2014-2019 and began working at camp in 2015. The families of North Hills Club have been a big part of my life, and it has been such a privilege of mine to watch a large majority of the NHC kids grow up.

I received my BS in Elementary Education from Pensacola Christian College in May 2019. Since graduation, I have gotten married to my high school sweetheart and former North Hills Kid’s Club employee and camp counselor, Jacob Keene. I began teaching third grade at Southside Christian School in Clayton, NC this past fall. Children have been my heart and passion for as long as I can remember. I have been so blessed to be a part of working with children for so many years. My camp and teaching experiences have both impacted my life and molded me into the person I am. My goal as a camp director goes beyond the fun and excitement of a typical camp day— my goal is to reach each of my campers' hearts and make a lasting influence in their lives. I want to see them grow and develop socially, mentally, and physically in the short period of time that I will be their camp director.

Outside of my occupation, I enjoy traveling, hiking and spending time with my family and friends. I coach middle school girls’ basketball for Southside Christian School. Sports have always been a big part of my life. I was a cheerleader in college and played intramural basketball and softball. I am always looking for a fun adventure, and I love bringing an adventure to summer camp through activities, games, weekly themes, and more.

I look forward to reconnecting with the campers and families I have gotten to know over the years, and I am excited tomeet and welcome new campers and families to Camp North Hills. Let the adventure begin!

Sincerely,
Camden Keene
