Check-out details will be emailed to families prior to camp.

PHOTO ID REQUIRED

The camp staff will check your photo ID as part of the check out process. 


PERMISSION TO LEAVE CAMP FORM

For the safety of our campers, counselors can ONLY release campers to adults listed on the Permission to Leave Camp Closing Day form.  You may log into your parent account to review this form & confirm the adults listed.  If you need to make changes, you should do so in that form online. 
 

CANTEEN CHECK OUT

A canteen summary of your camper’s account will be made available to you at check-out on Friday. Three options are available for any remaining funds in your camper’s account on Friday:

  • Donate remaining funds to provide camp scholarships for children of military families

  • Spend the remaining funds

  • Receive a refund back to your original credit card.

If you do not check out at the canteen on Friday, we will automatically designate any remaining funds to scholarships for children of military families.

EARLY CHECK OUT PROCEDURE

The camper experience is designed for the entire week and is intentionally programmed through a progression of relationship building, challenges, personal reflection, and growth.  When a camper leaves early, part of the overall experience is lost. 

 

However, we understand some early dismissals cannot be avoided.  If you need to pick your child up during camp or early on closing day, please send an email to carsonoffice@ymcacampcarson.org.  It is best if we receive this email prior to check in day.  If something comes up after your child is a camp, please call the camp office and follow up with an email. 

ON THE RIDE HOME

We have crafted a few open ended questions as conversation starters with your kid on the car ride home, for you to better understand their experience and learn more about their week:

  • What are the things you are most proud of this week?

  • I noticed camp has a motto, ACE – Accepted, Challenged and Empowered!  Can you tell me about that?

  • Tell me about your cabin mates, counselors and cabin group activities.

  • What are some goals you set for yourself?

  • I saw a photo of you doing __________.  Tell me about that.

REQUESTING YOUR FEEDBACK

Please watch for a brief email survey, and share your thoughts with us.  We want to continue to improve, to offer the best possible camp experience for all future campers. We truly appreciate your feedback!
