Regular Camp Operations

In all Teens To Go programs, safety is our # 1 concern. Once we arrive at our destination, the first thing we do is set up our "Base Camp" and go over all the directions/information for the day. From here, the campers are separated into groups according to the 2 levels of supervision the parents have chosen from: "Structured Freedom" or "Chaperoned Group". On all trips, the campers can choose their own groups everyday (within their supervision level). The campers are given times when we will do whole-group Check-Ins.


"
Base Camp" - this is our "command center". It is a location where campers can go anytime during the trip for any reason and one of our staff will be there. We also have a private 2-way radio system set up with the First Aid and Security Departments of all the major parks. If there was ever an emergency concerning any of our campers, the local authorities know where and how to contact us. Our Check-Ins are also located close to "Base Camp". We will always have at least 2 staff at Base Camp at all times.


"
Structured Freedom" - This gives the campers a sense of freedom since there will not be a staff member walking around with them at all times. However, since the campers will always have a camp shirt and a water-proof wristband on, we will be able to monitor them. The campers MUST be in groups of 2 or more at ALL times. They will be given check-in times (approximately every 2-3 hours). Anytime a camper gets separated from their group or needs a staff - they can always go to "Base Camp". This system allows for some freedom, within the guidelines of our camp safety rules. We will have staff roaming the park to keep an eye on these “structured freedom” groups.


"
Chaperoned Group" - In a “Chaperoned Group”, there will be 4-5 campers placed in a group which has a staff member that goes along with them at all times. The chaperone’s duties are to help facilitate the group with making decisions and staying together. This option is only for trips where the campers will be more spread out (amusement parks, the beach, etc). All campers will still be responsible for mandatory check-ins and any belongings they have. The “Chaperoned Group” will consist ONLY of campers whose parents request a “Chaperoned Group”. There is a $10 per camper/per session fee for this option. The "Chaperoned Group" fee is non-refundable. You will be able to sign up for this option at any point - even during camp. If you have any questions regarding this matter - please call us (301) 540-4356.


Supervision
The ratio set for this program is 1 staff for every 7 campers. On the long trips, the ratio goes to 1:5. In the "Chaperoned Group", the ratio averages 1 staff for every 4 campers. If our staff are not with the "Chaperoned Groups" they are either stationed at "Base Camp" or as floaters. When floating, the staff will be walking around and making sure our campers are doing what they should. Also, if the campers need anything, they will have quicker access to the staff. All of our staff have private 2-way radios so they can always be in contact with everyone.


Overnight Trips

Each of the even numbered sessions has a different overnight trip.  We understand the concerns parents may have regarding their child staying in a hotel.  We have taken many measures to ensure the safety of each of the campers.


  1. 1. We use hotels that we have a history with.  We also stay away from hotels that may be in areas that are heavily 

     trafficked in the evenings. The hotel works on giving us blocks of rooms together so that we are separated from the

     other patrons of the hotel

  1. 2. We arrange it so that between every 2-3 rooms there is a staff room; to help monitor the rooms and for easy

     access for the campers to get us in case of emergencies.

3.  Our staff are up late into the night monitoring the hallways

4.  We have also developed several safety methods that we use to make sure nobody leaves the room.

5.  NO staff will be in the rooms with the campers - rooms are set up with 4 campers to a room


Cost

Prices include all transportation fees, admission costs, supervision, any activity fees, a camp shirt, and a $45 non-refundable fee for any cancellations you make. Additional cancellation fees will apply after June 5th. Food is NOT included in the price. Deposits - If you do not want to pay the full amount at the time of registration, a minimum deposit of $150 (per person, per session) must be made. The final balance will be due by June 5th.
