All campers must be at least 3 years old by the first day they attend camp. In addition, campers must be potty-trained and able to handle an active 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 $30 per week. If you would like to purchase this optional lunch, you can do so at the time of enrollment. Otherwise, you are welcome to pack a lunch for your child in a cooler or backpack. Regardless of which lunch option you choose, all campers will receive an afternoon snack provided by the club.
*Half-Day Campers: The Half-Day program technically ends at 12:30PM, right before our lunch period. Should you want your child to eat lunch at camp, he or she may stay for the lunch period which is 12:30PM – 1:00PM. You may either purchase the lunch provided by the club or bring your own. Please inform your Camp Director if you plan to have your child stay to eat.
Please note that we are a “Nut Aware” camp. We ask that you do not send your child with any food that contains nuts. PLEASE MAKE SURE TO INFORM US IF YOUR CHILD HAS ANY FOOD ALLERGIES OR DIETARY RESTRICTIONS.
Campers should dress in comfortable shorts, t-shirt and sneakers each day.
Please leave all electronic devices and cell phones at home. Camp is a place to un-plug! Please pack the following items in a labeled bag or backpack:

Meet Your Camp Director
Dear Campers and Families,
Hello there! My name is Amber, and I am going to be your Shark Camp Director for the summer of 2019! I hope that you have had a great year thus far, and I hope that you are as excited as I am that our summer together is about to start.
Before I have the opportunity to get to know each of you, I want to tell you a bit about myself. For starters, I just had my baby girl, Audrey, on December 5, 2018. Audrey and I love to go on all kinds of adventures together, as we love to laugh and have fun! After being a new mommy, I am also a sixth grade science teacher. As a science teacher, I have the opportunity to do a lot of fun projects and activities with my students, as they are learning a lot of cool things! I am also an alumna of the University of Illinois at Chicago, where I received my Bachelor of Arts in Elementary Education in 2016. After the school year has come to an end, and the summer weather FINALLY hits us, I love to have fun at camp! This year is going to be my third summer working as the Shark Camp Director for KE Camps. I am very lucky to be back this year!
As camp starts to get closer, I can reassure you that it is such a fun and exciting way to learn and build friendships that will last a lifetime. Camp allowed me to meet some of my best friends, as well as learn that I love making treats and doing arts and crafts. I know that this summer at Shark Camp, you will be able to meet some awesome people, and learn about what you love to do, too! We are all going to experience so many fun activities at camp, and build so many friendships that will last a lifetime.
I am so excited to meet each and every one of you; we will have the best summer!
