We have a full time nurse on staff to administer all medications. Please place them in a zip lock bag. Label the bag AND the bottles. Before you leave camp you will meet with our nurse to go over specific directions.

DOES YOUR CHILD WEAR PULL UPS? NO WORRIES.  JUST TELL YOUR COUNSELOR. WE’LL HANDLE IT. 

Do not send:
Hand held electronic gadgets of any sort: Cell phone, ipod, iPads, laptops or anything which might interfere with the camp goals. When in doubt email [email protected]

Please do not send anything to camp that MUST return the way it left home.
Clothes get lost, and if they don’t, they come home very dirty.
That’s a sign that your child had lots of fun at Camp Kidding Around Yoga. If your child leaves something behind there is a very good chance you are not going to see it again. Keep this in mind while packing.  

Please note: When you arrive at Camp KAY, our staff will be checking the packing list against each child’s belongings.   If an item or items are missing, we may ask you to go to the nearest store to purchase items. Please take time to be sure everything on the packing list is included in your bag before you leave home. Luckily there is a Walmart VERY close.
