Welcome to Camp!


Wow! It's hard to believe we’re already at the end of May! The school year is wrapping up, and camp season is almost here!


We've been working hard to prepare for our campers' arrival come July. This email is the first in our series of weekly updates leading up to camp. I’ll share bite-sized pieces of information to make it easier to digest than a lengthy handbook. Please don’t hesitate to reach out if you have any questions.


Here are some quick facts for this summer:


Camp Hours: 9:00 am – 4:00 pm

  • Drop Off: 8:30 am – 9:00 am

  • Pick Up: 4:00 pm – 4:30 pm

  • Extended Hours: Additional fees apply, and campers must be registered in advance. Drop-in extended hours are available.

  • Before Camp: 7:30 am – 8:30 am

  • Afternoon Camp: 4:30 pm – 6:00 pm


Camper Forms: All forms must be completed before your camper's first day. This includes the Camper Information Form, Waivers & Agreements, Camper Code of Conduct, and Health Immunization Certificate (MDH-896).

  • Medications: If your camper needs any medications (including over-the-counter or vitamins), a Medication Administration Authorization (MDH-4758-A) must be submitted with the medication. For asthma, include an Asthma Action Plan and Medication Administration Authorization (MDH-4758-C). More details on medications and emergency protocols will be shared in a future email. Please reach out with any questions.


Contacting Camp: Our phone number is 301-852-0909 and is available during all camp hours. For after-hours inquiries, email us at info@CampRipplingBrook.com.


Communication from Camp: We value communication and want to keep you informed.

  • Daily Emails: If your child’s usual response to "How was your day?" is "Good," "Stuff," or my least favorite to hear lately from my son: “I’m not telling you,” our daily emails will help. We’ll share activities, announcements, weather updates, and more.

  • Weekly Emails: The week before your child's camp session, you’ll receive a reminder email with important information such as spirit days, packing lists, and drop-off/pick-up procedures.

  • Social Media: Follow us on Facebook and Instagram for updates. We’ll try to post daily but sometimes we get a bit distracted with the fun we’re having.

  • SmugMug: For a closer look at camp activities and the joy of camp, we’ll upload photos to SmugMug, accessible with the password (password will be sent via email).


Groups & Camp Size: We’re committed to offering a rich camp experience filled with activities, friendships, and memories. We are anticipating our weekly numbers to be slightly higher than last year but still relatively small. We’re excited about the summer and look forward to meeting all our families! Remember, we offer a $25 referral discount on registration.


Please let me know if you have any questions. Here’s a preview of upcoming emails:

  • June 5: Activities Overview

  • June 12: Health & Medications

  • June 19: Procedures & Daily Camp Schedule

  • June 26: Staff Introductions & Training


Thank you!


Kate
