Club Registration Requirements

If you are not a Club Member of Onion Creek 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 Camp Onion Creek in any way, however, he or she must be aware that you are listing him or her as your Sponsor. This policy allows Onion Creek Club to ensure that all Non-Members attending camp are associated with a Club Member in some way.

Age Range: 4 - 12

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.

Activities

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:

For more information on the golf and tennis lessons at camp, please click here.

Golf: 2 recreational group lessons each week
Tennis: 2 recreational group lessons each week
Swimming: recreational swim time in the club's pool (Tuesday - Friday) - for full day campers only

STEM Challenges

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 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.

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:

Extra Snacks (Optional)
Flotation Vest: If you know that your child will be classified as a Bogey (our term for Non-Swimmer) this summer or you prefer your child to be classified this way, please pack a flotation vest for use in the Shallow End of the pool.
Golf Clubs (Optional)
Sunscreen: Spray for body is preferred
Swimsuit
Tennis Racquet (Optional)
Water Bottle

Payments, Cancellations, Refunds

Registration & Payments

Registration for Summer 2020 is open 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 by June 21, 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

Hello Campers and Families,

My name is Brianna Pienkowski! I’ll be your camp director at Onion Creek Club. I’m excited to meet you and keep you cool in the Texas sun this summer!

I’m originally from Wisconsin and formerly worked as the camp director at Glen Flora Country Club in Illinois. I’m looking forward to living in Austin this summer and taking part in all the wonderful KE Camps activities with you! My personal favorites are golfing, mini-athletic games, fun with foods, and “Minute to Win It” challenges. We offer a variety of fun experiences, so no matter what your interest is, you will have a blast at camp!

I graduated from the University of Wisconsin-Madison with a bachelor’s degree in Elementary Education. I’ve spent the past 10 years working with K-8th grade students within educational and recreational-based programs. Last year, I taught reading in Florida and English in Wisconsin to middle schoolers. Recently, I worked as a substitute teacher in my hometown and plan to return to the University of Wisconsin-Madison in the Fall to complete my student teaching in order to receive my teaching license. I love creating meaningful relationships with my students and motivating them to reach their full potential!

Aside from my passion in education, I have a variety of interests and hobbies. I love traveling, sight-seeing and learning about different cultures! I love spending time with my family, playing board games and watching movies. I played basketball and soccer throughout my life – I’m looking to join a recreational team in Austin! In addition, I enjoy spending time outdoors hiking, fishing, kayaking, and rock-climbing. I hope to venture the trails and natural parks around Austin this summer!

As a camp director, I love creating relationships with campers and their families. I promise to do all I can to ensure you and your camper have an amazing experience! Kids have a natural curiosity about life and have various personalities, interests and talents! I look forward to learning about your child and seeing them develop while they are at camp.

Sincerely,
Brianna Pienkowski
