Club Registration Requirements

Please note that if you are not a member of Saratoga Golf & Polo Club, you must be officially sponsored by a member of the club in order to enroll your child in camp. You will need to have your sponsor family’s name and club number on hand at the time of online enrollment. In addition, that member of the club must write a letter on your behalf stating that they will act as your sponsor for camp. Once you enroll your child, you are required to send in this letter as soon as possible in order to fully complete your enrollment. Letters can be brief (include the member’s name, your name and a sentence stating that the member is willing to act as your sponsor) and should be emailed, mailed or fax to us. We thank you for your cooperation with this policy in advance.

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 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

A kid-friendly lunch will be provided by the club daily for every camper. 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

KECamps requires all campers to wear our official camp shirt each day of the week. Additional shirts may be purchased at camp. Campers should dress in comfortable clothing and tennis shoes. Camp is a place to un-plug! Please leave all electronic devices and cell phones at home. 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
Tennis Racquet (Optional)
Water Bottle

You may also log back in to the registration site after you have enrolled your child to upload the paperwork there. We will ask for some medical information about your child during the online registration process. In addition, NY state law requires that this supplement be on file for every camper. We thank you for your cooperation in getting this form to us in a timely manner.

Meet Your Camp Director

Dear Campers and Families,

I am excited and honored to be taking on the role of Director this summer! With my experience as counselor with KE Camps last year, I am ready to transition to Director! I had the pleasure of getting to know a number of wonderful campers and families last summer, and I look forward to seeing many of the same faces soon as well as meeting news ones.

Currently, I teach second grade at the Lake George Central School District and live in Saratoga. This is my second year at Lake George and fourth year as a teacher. I also coach JV soccer in Lake George. Previously, I taught at the Queensbury Union Free School District. While teaching in Queensbury, I coached a FIRST LEGO League team. I have experience across many grade levels including fifth grade, third grade, and pre-K. I attended the University at Albany to earn my master of science degree and became a Literacy Specialist. I was a supervisor at a childcare and learning center while completing my graduate work. Prior to that, I attended Plattsburgh State University of New York to earn my bachelor of science degree. I am certified in Literacy (birth-6), Childhood Education (grades 1-6), and Early Childhood Education (birth-2).

I love all sports and play recreational soccer, flag football, and kickball in my free time. I enjoy reading and visiting the Saratoga Library as well as the Northshire Bookstore frequently. I have a 55-gallon fish tank with 13 colorful fish. I love traveling to new cities and exploring new places. I recently acquired a guitar, so my goal is to begin taking lessons soon. I ski and want to give snowboarding a try. While I am not the greatest chef, cooking shows are my favorite and always have been. Spending time outdoors is something I cherish, so I look forward to being outside all summer long!

Growing up, I joined summer camps every year and became a counselor after graduating high school. I have fantastic
memories as a camper and a counselor, so I am thrilled to make new memories this year with you! Children make me
laugh and smile every single day, and it is one of the many reasons why I love working with them! I cannot wait to join
in and participate in games/events/activities/adventures alongside our campers.

I will see you at camp!

Alex Poetzsch
