Things to Know…

Lunch – Your camper needs to bring a lunch each day. We will refrigerate the lunches as soon as the campers arrive, but make sure to label them with your camper’s name. Please do not send your camper with a meal that needs to be heated, as we do not have food preparation areas.
The Bus – If your camper takes the bus to and from camp each day, the bus counselor will arrive at the stop 10 minutes before departure time. Parents need to stay with their camper until the bus has been loaded. Please be aware that the buses may need to stop at other pick-up points on the way to and from camp. If you plan on dropping your camper off at the Ranch directly, the drop off time is 8:45am and 3:30pm.
Extended Care – Morning Extended Care begins at 7:00am and Afternoon Extended Care runs till 6:30pm. Campers will be given additional snack at afternoon care. If you have not yet enrolled, but believe you will need extended care, email help@bar-t.com
Swimming – Camper’s swimming ability will be evaluated on their first visit to the pool. If they are cleared to swim in the deeper areas, they will be given a green swim band, if they are not cleared, they will be given a red one. We are happy to reevaluate campers with a swim test upon their request.
Sunscreen – We provide sunscreen for your child and apply it throughout the day. To make sure they are sufficiently covered, please send them with their first application of sunscreen already applied.
Bullying and Behavior – We want each and every one of our campers to enjoy summer in an environment that is free of physical, emotional, and verbal harassment from others. Bar-T is a “No Bully Zone” and we will respond immediately to any incidents that involve these behaviors. Please let us know immediately if you or your camper has any questions or concerns about any of these issues.
What to Bring – Please send your camper with a bag lunch, bathing suit, towell, comfortable clothes, and closed toed shoes each day.
