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

You have the option to purchase a kid-friendly lunch provided by the club for $30 per week. If you choose this option, please bring a check made out to “Quail Ridge Country Club” in the amount of $30 each Monday. The lunch checks will be collected by the director. Otherwise, you are welcome to pack a lunch for your child.

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

KECamps 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.

Meet Your Camp Director

Dear Campers and Families,

It is with great pleasure and enthusiasm that I welcome you to Camp Quail Ridge for the summer of 2019! My name is Ken Olson, and I will serve as your camp director. Summer camp is a very special and meaningful place for children, and we are so excited that you have chosen Camp Quail Ridge as your summer camp experience. The camp staff and I are very much looking forward to making this summer a very happy, meaningful and memorable one for your child.

A little bit about myself- I am a high school English teacher and have been for the past 27 years…don’t worry…there won’t be any homework assigned this summer! I have also directed a variety of camps during the past 20 years…a large, traditional day camp, a small, drop-in, half-day camp, an all-sports camp and sport-specific camps. In addition, I’ve coached high school basketball and baseball at all levels for many years. I love to exercise! So, I hope your children keep me busy and running around all summer! And if they don’t, then I’m sure my two cats, Leo and Sammy, and dog, Mocha, will at home!

Camp is a very important part of my life. As a husband and father of three, the oldest now in college, I have closely observed how camp has a direct, positive influence on children’s lives. I know, for example, after having my daughter at camp with me for the past 8 years, how important camp is to children and how much they look forward to each new day, seeing their counselors, making new friends and developing new skills in activities not readily available during the school year. This is what motivates me and the staff each day; our goals are to create a safe, healthy camp environment in which all campers have fun, learn, grow, develop and make new friends!

Working with children, whether as a camp director, teacher, coach or father, is not work at all! It’s a privilege and a calling in life…a unique opportunity to help shape and positively impact our loved ones. We’ll have so much fun this summer engaging in safe, healthy, outdoor activities that our campers will find positively refreshing after a long school year. Thank you so much for sending your camper to Quail Ridge this summer! We’re all looking forward to warm days and summer fun.

See you at camp!
