Frequently Asked Questions
How do I register?
Registration is online. At time of registration a $25 non-refundable deposit is required per session per child.
In order to complete your registration the medical form must be completed. An up to date immunization form must be uploaded to the camper registration, or scanned and emailed to email@example.com, or a copy brought on the first day of camper session. Per camp policy,
ALL campers must be up to date on their immunizations.
What is your cancellation policy?
Cancellations must be made 2 weeks prior to the starting date of camp to be eligible for a refund.
If a cancellation notice is received by the NHCCC office 2 weeks prior to camp, a refund will be given in the amount paid minus the $25.00 non-refundable deposit.
Cancellation less than 2 weeks prior to their camp will NOT be entitled to a refund. NO refunds will be given if a camper leaves camp early.
In the event NHCCC has to cancel a camp session, a full refund will be given or the camper may choose to attend another session.
When do I pay the balance?
This must be IN FULL 2 weeks before camp begins.
Is there a registration deadline?
Applicants are accepted on a first come, first served basis. We fill up early! Typically, we accept up to 15 campers per age-group per week. Campers can be wait-listed. Modifications to groups may be made on high-demand weeks, but are not guaranteed.
What grade is a child allowed to attend camp?
Campers must be in rising K – 9th grade. Overnight Camps are for rising 5th – 9th grade and Rookie Camp for rising 4th – 5th grade. High School Crew is rising 10th grade.
How are camper groups determined?
We organize our groups by rising grade. There are no more than 15 campers per group.
Do I need to pack a lunch?
No, snacks and meals are part of the camp fee. We accommodate dietary restrictions such as gluten free or vegetarian diet.
What time is drop off and pick up?
Our camp program begins at 8am and ends at 5pm. Early drop off at 7:30am and late pick up by 6pm at no extra charge.
Can I pick my child up early or drop my child off late to camp during the week?
This is discouraged. The camp program day is from 8 am to 5 pm. Campers who come in late or leave early miss out on quality group building time and will not get the full benefits of our program. We understand that occasionally campers have appointments they must attend, but we encourage you to keep late drop off and early pick up to a minimum. Please notify the office staff if you plan to arrive late of leave early. The office staff will point you in the right direction to pick up your camper.
What does my child need to bring?
Campers should wear sensible shoes to run around camp and comfortable clothes. Each day campers should bring a water bottle, sunscreen, bug spray, a towel, and a modest bathing suit.
What does my child need to bring for overnight camp?
Additional items to bring:
· sleeping bag
· sheets for mattress
· pillow (only if you want!)
· additional clothing
· warm socks and a sweatshirt
· 3 towels (2 for showering, 1 for pool)
My child is not a good swimmer. Do you provide swim lessons?
Children in rising 1st and 2nd grade will have the opportunity to have group swim lessons.
Do you offer financial assistance?
We encourage you to seek other options to assist in the cost of camp such as your Church or other family members. If this is not possible please complete the scholarship form which can be found online and submit with your registration form.
My child is not vaccinated can they attend camp?
The camp policy is that all campers must be up to date in ALL vaccinations. An up to date form must be upload to the registration form, or scanned and emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org, or brought on 1st day of camp.
Campers are expected to have their own health insurance coverage. Secondary accident insurance is provided by NHCCC.
If my child is injured or ill, how will I be notified?
The Camp Director or another member of camp staff will contact you by phone if any first aid incident occurs that requires more than a Band-Aid.
