These people will need to be listed on your registration form and they must bring picture identification with them when they come. Please refer to the camp website, for policies regarding someone not listed.

Food & Meals

Food & Meals

All campers will receive lunch and snack daily.  A menu will be available prior to the start of camp. Campers can also bring lunch with them every day. Lunch should be non-perishable items that do not need to be heated. Lunch boxes are stored in coolers until lunch time.

 

Snack will be provided daily for all campers. 

 

All food provided by Mill Basin Day Camp is Kosher Style. If your camper has a dietary concern or allergies, please let us know so that we can make the proper arrangements for them.

Swimming

Lifeguards are present both in and out of the water for safety.  Swimming is offered every day. Every camper will have a swimming test. After which, each time they enter the pool they will be given a colored bracelet designating their abilities. Swim instruction will be provided to beginners only if they agree to take the swim test. Those who don’t will not be allowed to swim. You will also need to have provided a Swimming Permission form. 

 

Suntan lotion is applied at home though staff will be looking carefully to make sure campers are not overexposed to the sun.

What Not to Bring

NO CELL PHONES OR ANY OTHER ELECTRONIC DEVICES ARE EVER ALLOWED AT CAMP!

PARKING AT THE CAMP

As all campers are now going to be brought in by car, we suggest parking outside the camp lot and or carpooling whenever possible. If you do come into the lot, please follow the traffic pattern along with any staff that may be directing you. 

 

Only take 1 spot and do not stay longer than necessary in order to provide space for the next family.  Do not park in front of the door or even double park as you wait for someone to come out.  It’s very dangerous and can cause a lot of extra traffic backup.

 

Parking is available right outside the lot to either side and is legal.  There is also parking available on the blocks near the camp.  DO NOT block anyones driveway, even for a second.
