Frequently Asked Questions

We know it is hot! We have been running summer camps since 1998, so we completely understand the need to keep campers hydrated and cool. We ensure our campers and staff drink plenty of water throughout the day. We have a good mix of indoor and outdoor activities and always provide ample time to cool off. We apply sunscreen to all the kids at least twice a day, encourage hats, and look for ways to get the kids in the shade.
Ages 4.5 – 14.
*Campers must turn 5 by December 31st, 2021.

Campers who do not pass the swim test will be given a life vest (US Coast Guard approved) to wear while swimming. The pool does have a shallow end for the less advanced swimmers.

COVID-19 Update The city pools are not opening Summer 2020. We will have water activities on Monday and Friday afternoon and Waterslide Wednesday throughout the day!
At Camp Hubbard, we believe that Summer is the time to spend unplugged, away from the screens and technology. With that philosophy, we will not allow campers to be on their phones during camp. We also acknowledge that cell phones are necessary for some family situations. Therefore, if phones are brought onto campus, they will be turned over to the Camp Director who will keep them stored for the entirety of the day, until the camper goes home. If parents need to get in touch with their campers, they can call our camp phones which connect to the director on site.
Snacks: Animal Crackers, Goldfish, Cheez-Its, or Wheat Thins are provided to all campers in the morning. Campers with dietary restrictions please bring an appropriate snack to camp.  
Lunch: Full day campers only.  Monday-Thursday: Campers bring a self-cooled lunch.

 Nut allergies - campers with allergies sit at a separate table. Friends are welcome to sit with them if their lunch does not contain nuts.
