Muscarelle Summer Camp
Welcome to the 2023 Muscarelle Summer Camp! Thank you so much for being a part of our inaugural summer camp experience. We have a lot of exciting art activities planned for campers this summer. Below please find useful camp information for parents.
Please contact email@example.com or call (757) 221-2717 with any questions.
What to Expect
The 2023 camp will host 50 campers, who will be divided into four groups with two camp staff assigned to each group. Groups will rotate through a variety of projects including photography, painting, sculpture and mixed media. Campers will take home a work of art each day. On Friday, July 21, parents and siblings are invited to attend an art show and presentation at 11:00 am in Andrews Hall. More information on this event will be provided during the week of camp, but please mark your calendars now!
All campers must have the following completed forms:
Submit forms prior to camp by sending by via email to firstname.lastname@example.org, or bring the completed forms with you to check-in on Monday, July 17.
What to Bring/Wear
- All campers should bring a water bottle daily.
- Snacks will be provided. If your camper has special dietary needs, they may pack a nut-free snack.
- On Monday, each camper will be provided with two camp shirts — please wear your shirt every day!
- Art can be messy! Wear comfortable clothing that can get dirty. Campers will be on their feet during the day, so closed-toed, comfortable shoes are a must. For safety reasons, sandals and Crocs are not permitted.
- If your camper requires medication to be administered during camp, please bring any medications. A completed medical authorization form must be submitted prior to camp staff administering any medication.
DO NOT BRING: cell phones or valuables.
Camp will begin promptly at 9 am. Campers may be dropped off as early as 8:45 am (no earlier, please). Parents must escort their campers to and from Andrews Hall each day. Parking is available along Ukrop Way and in the adjacent Parking Deck, just a short walk from Andrews. Please print and display this parking pass on your dashboard to avoid a ticket! Only people authorized for pick-up on the camper’s contact form will be allowed to pick up a child.
In the event of an emergency at camp it is our policy to stop all activities and collect all campers at a designated location to take attendance. Parents of the campers involved will be called immediately. Please make sure to provide emergency contact information prior to the first day of camp.
If a camper is involved in an accident, camp staff will complete an accident report and will notify the parent/guardian at pick up time. The parent/guardian is responsible for picking up the injured child and determining whether further medical attention is necessary.
