Club Registration Requirements
If you are not a Club Member of The Club at Old Hawthorne, 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 Old Hawthorne in any way, however, he or she must be aware that you are listing him or her as your Sponsor. This policy allows The Club at Old Hawthorne to ensure that all Non-Members attending camp are associated with a Club Member in some way.
Age Range: 5 - 10
All campers must be at least 5 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:

Lunch & Snacks
You have the option to purchase a kid-friendly lunch provided by the club for $20 per week. If you would like to purchase this option, you may do so during online enrollment. 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.
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:

Registration & Payments
Registration for Summer 2019 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 firstname.lastname@example.org. Cancellations made by July 14, 2019 will be refunded in full (less the registration fee). After that, there are no refunds.

Meet Your Camp Director
Dear Campers and Families
I am thrilled to introduce myself as the Director at Camp Old Hawthorne. I am currently a teacher in the Columbia Public School District, and have been searching for a way to spend more “unstructured” time with kiddos; KE Camps will be a perfect fit! I strive to create engaging activities and programs that will enrich students and cannot wait to use my skills with your children. I thoroughly enjoy the energy and excitement that children bring to each day, and I love creating lasting friendships between peers and adults.
In 2016, I lived in Colorado and loved hiking, biking, and enjoying everything that the mountains had to offer. I recently moved to Columbia, MO in May of 2017. I received my bachelor's degree in Elementary Education, and my master's in Elementary Mathematics from UCM (Go Mules!). When I am not in the classroom, I am traveling to new places, or going on adventures with my husband and two sons. I have a one year old and a three year old, so I enjoy being busy! I love working with children of all ages. My passion for education began in high school, and I couldn’t imagine doing anything else. I also greatly enjoy building lasting relationships with families, and I look forward to getting to know you and your child very soon!
I cannot wait to begin making memories with you and your camper!
