CHECKING FOR LICE
Upon arriving to camp, our camp nurses will be checking all campers for lice. We are requesting that you check your child for lice before arriving at CYB. If you are not sure if your child has lice please see your healthcare provider to have your child evaluated. If upon evaluation, your child has nits or eggs present, they will be sent home. They will not be allowed to stay at camp.

All campers must be signed out at the checkout station.
Campers will be allowed to leave only with an authorized person, unless prior arrangements are made with the CYB administration.
CHILD CARE (AFTER HOURS)
Pllease note that pickup time for campers are Sundays 9 a.m. to11 a.m. Parents please pick up your child within this timeframe on Sunday. We will be giving a grace period until 12 p.m. After this time however, campers that have not yet been picked up by parents will be automatically placed in a child care program and parents will be charged $20 per hour per camper.
LETTERS & PHONE CALLS
Campers love to get letters, packages, and e-mails from home. Please send them early so they will be sure to arrive while the camper is still at camp. We encourage you to write rather than call; kids love hearing their name during mail call. Campers may receive e-mails but cannot send them. If you wish to email your camper use the following: firstname.lastname@example.org
Due to the nature of our program, it is best for all incoming calls to be limited to emergencies only. This keeps our phones available for business and emergency use. Our staff will assist campers in making any emergency calls home if necessary.
HEALTH & SAFETY
In planning for the camping season we have endeavored to create as safe an environment and activities as possible while still allowing the campers to experience adventure and to be challenged physically. Our staff is carefully trained to ensure the safety of our campers. A nurse is available at the camp 24 hours a day.
We have limited accident insurance on each camper, however, your insurance will be primary. In case of emergency, parents are notified as soon as possible. Any medical treatment other than camp accidents are the responsibility of the parents. All campers will undergo a health screening at registration.
It is required for each camper to bring their own medications, and if these are over-the-counter medications, they must be in their own containers.
All camper medications must be registered and placed in the care of the health personnel at registration.
Please indicate on the health history form any medicines that are to be taken during the campers stay.
In the event of a medical problem, the camp will make all attempts to contact the parents or guardian. Please make sure we have the best phone number to reach you.
CAMPER DRESS CODE
No low necklines, halter-tops, strapless dresses, very sheer fabrics, tee shirts with objectionable advertisements, patches and slogans, unduly tight clothing and exposed midriffs.
Shorts / skirts must be of modest length.
One piece, modest bathing suits are required.
No overly baggy clothes will be allowed; all pants must be at proper waist height.
Jewelry should be left at home for security & safety issues.
Anyone failing to comply with these guidelines will be asked to change into acceptable attire. (Items deemed inappropriate will be confiscated and not returned.)
What is CYB's refund policy?
Deposits are non-refundable and non-transferable. If you cancel within a week of the camp you wanted to attend you will be refunded 50% of the camp fee. There are no refunds for “no shows.”
How does CYB choose their counselors & staff?
All staff members go through a rigorous application process where they are thoroughy vetted, interviewed, and background checked. We look into their references as well as talk with their teacher's and job supervisor's. CYB chooses to hire those applicants who are responsible, have a good work ethic, are of good moral character and have a passion to help kids draw closer to Jesus.
Where do I go upon arriving at camp?
Once you arrive at camp, please make your way to the cafteria building. There you will begin the on-site regiatration process.
What time should I arrive for registration on Sunday?
Registration begins at 1:30 p.m. We advise that you arrive no earlier than 12:30 p.m. as our staff will be busy assiting outgoing campers as well as turning the camp in preparation for a new set of campers. If you want to come when the registration line is shortest, we advise you arrive between 3-4 p.m.
If I request a particular cabin, is my child guaranteed to be placed in that cabin?
Cabin assignments are prioritized on a first come first serve basis. The earlier you register online, the better your chances will be of getting your preffered cabin assignment. Our boys and girl's directors have the discretion to decide where campers are assigned.
