    Packing List

    What to Bring to Day Camp

    As you prepare for Sky Ranch Day Camp, below is a list of items you will need to pack each day for your camper. When you pick up your child at the end of the day, you will receive information concerning activities for the following day. Please read the information and be sure to note these additional items of clothing for water days. 

    Daily

    Please make sure to label all of your campers belongings!

    • Water bottle
    • Extra clothes (just in case)
    • Tennis shoes
    • Suncreen (please apply in the morning, we will reapply)
    • Lunch and drink
    • Hand sanitizer
    • Emergency Medications: Albuterol inhalers and Epinephrine injectors are the ONLY medications which can be accepted by Day Camp staff. Staff members are trained in administration of albuterol inhalers and epinephrine auto-injectors only. All other medications must be administered by a parent prior to the morning activities or after pickup. Please email the Sky Ranch Health Center Administrator at JenW@SkyRanch.org with any questions.

    Water Days

    Monday and Friday will not be a Water Day. Please refer to the the information in the Booklet you will be given on Monday. We will also notify you through the Bunk1 App of any changes throughout the week. 

    • Swimsuit (under your child's clothes, please!)
      • Girls: Modest one-piece. No V-Necks.
      • Boys: Appropriate length shorts. No Speedos.
    • Gallon sized bag for wet swimsuit
    • Water shoes (required for water activities)
    • Towel

    Clothing

    A few notes about clothing for Day Camp:

    • Wear comfy play clothes. Shorts and a t-shirt kind of thing!
    • Tennis shoes are a MUST!
    • On water days, we require water shoes of some sort. It would be best to send a second pair of shoes to act as "water shoes" for that day so that they don't spend the dry parts of the day in wet shoes. Any kind of "Teva" style or "Aqua Sock" will be great, and even an old pair of tennis shoes will work. 

     

    Check-in & Out Information

    Check-in

    Monday through Friday at 9:00 am

    Please note, we cannot accept campers prior to 9:00 am. If your child will be late or absent, please email Sky Ranch's Day Camp team at DayCamp@SkyRanch.org. To maintain the health and safety of all campers and staff, when you arrive, your camper will have their temperature taken each day. This summer, Check-in will be a modified version of a School Drop-Off.

     

    Pick-up

    Monday through Thursday at 4:00 pm

    If your child will be picked up early, please notify us when you drop your child off. Friday pick-up is 3:00! On Friday, please follow the instructions of the Sky Ranch Staff, as this day will be a little different than the other days to allow for a more meaningful send-off!

    Parents will receive a booklet with the contact information of each site at check-in on Monday, organized by color. In case of emergency, please contact the appropriate site color listed in the booklet. Site Coordinator phones will only be available during day camp hours. During off camp hours, please email DayCamp@SkyRanch.org.

    1. Show your driver’s license
    2. Match the license with the name on the Authorized List

    Important Info: You may authorize additional people to pick up your camper in your online account under Additional Questions prior to camp. We cannot release a camper to anyone who is not on this list.

    **On Friday, don't forget to pre-register your camper for 2022! Spots fill fast and this is the best way to ensure you get the spot you want!

    Theme Days

    How it works

    Every day of Day Camp has a fun theme, with activities planned to go along with that day's theme! While Mondays (Welcome to the Oasis) and Fridays (Launch Day) will remain consistent, the other theme days vary depending on location and session.

    Oasis

    Welcome to an amazing week of camp! This week, be prepared to fly through the air on a zipline, slide down the tallest waterslide, and play gaga ball with all your friends. You will laugh at the funniest skits, meet really awesome people, and learn more about Jesus! We are excited to spend each day at camp with you. 

    Crazy Color Carnival

    Water Day | Wear your hat from the pack! 

    Get your ticket ready for the craziest and most colorful carnival experience of all time! Wear your brightest colors as we play ring toss, chicken scramble, and elephant hockey.

    More Information

    Lost & Found

    Our goal is to not have any! Help us by labeling everything your child brings and by making sure that you have all of their belongings before you leave each day. Sky Ranch cannot be responsible for lost or broken items.

    Lunch

    We will have a 30-minute lunch period each day. Please send your child with a sack lunch and drink. Sky Ranch will provide a daily snack in the afternoon before check-out. 

    Photos - See camp in action!

    You can expect to see a handful of fun pictures of your camper participating in activities and posing with their cabin throughout the week. The goal is to capture one to two photos of each camper, each day.

    Pictures are uploaded daily to the Bunk1 App for you to view, purchase, and share.

    To view photos and send your camper emails while they are at camp, download the Bunk1 App and log in using your Sky Ranch account information.
