What will campers do at camp?
Each day at Camp Super Kids is filled with activities, including swimming, kayaking, sailing, all-camp games, arts and crafts and more. We also offer educational sessions to teach campers how to better manage their asthma.
Food is provided. If your child has food allergies, please bring food in clearly labeled containers to supplement their meals with safe alternatives. Camp Super Kids is peanut- and shellfish-free.
What should campers bring to camp?
Campers should bring everything they need for a full week of overnight camping.
We recommend bringing hygiene products, clothing, swimwear, towels, bedding, a pillow and all of their medical equipment and medications. We ask that campers bring medications in the original bottles they received them in from their doctor or pharmacist.
How can families stay in touch with their campers?
We understand it may be difficult for parents and campers to be away from each other, especially if this is a camper’s first time away from home. We recommend parents and guardians write letters to their campers. This helps campers stay excited about camp and decreases their chances of homesickness.
From experience, we know that one of the best ways to manage homesickness is to prohibit cell phones at camp. No cell phones are allowed at camp.
If there are any concerns or emergencies at camp, our team will reach out to the contact we have on file as soon as possible. If families need to communicate with their camper, they can call our camp coordinator at (605) 328-7157.
We don’t allow visitors at camp except during emergencies. In such cases, parents or guardians must contact our camp coordinator before their arrival.
