How will I be notified if camp is closed due to an emergency?

If Landon Summer closes because of safety concerns, inclement weather, power loss or other emergencies, notification will made on the camp website and an email will be sent.

What should my child wear to camp each day?

Each camp program has suggestions for what to wear each day. Dress for day camps is comfortable and weather appropriate. All items should be labeled with the camper’s name. Dress for sports camps should be comfortable and appropriate for the sport. Dress for academic, art and music programs is informal, but neat.

If this form is not submitted, course credit cannot be guaranteed.
