Late Pick-up:
As a convenience to parents, we provide After-Care that is available to sign up for upon registration of your camper(s). Without this registration, over 15 minutes after the end of the regular camp day is considered late. Beyond this 15 minutes, we place the camper in After-Care and charge $25 per camper per day for each session of care. We do this in order to make every effort to support and compensate our staff for the time they invest. We need our team to be able to review the day with each other and return refreshed for your campers the next day.

Attendance: We would love to see your camper for the entire week, but we understand circumstances do not always allow for this. In addition to the time and effort our staff puts into planning the activities, certain materials and resources are required in advance to ensure a fun and exciting experience for our campers. For this reason, we will not be able to refund any part of a day if a camper arrives late or must leave early. We will also not be able to prorate any missed days.


Q: How will the camp recruit, screen and train the staff?
A: We are recruiting from area universities first (UM, FIU) for students studying education and physical education. All interviews will be conducted first by the Camp Director (Kids & Teens Manager) and then by our Club’s General Manager/COO. Training will occur prior to camp’s start and will encompass how to handle all aspects of children, including problems between campers, integrating oneself into the group, making friends, requiring respect from campers, and safety of campers. This year we will have one counselor for every 10 campers.

Q: Will the staff be trained in first aid and CPR?
A: The staff will be trained in first aid and CPR before working with campers.

Q: How many kids do you expect to sign up?
A: We estimate between 12-20 kids per week. We are hoping to revamp the interest in our youth activities and utilize the momentum from this year's activities which are growing rapidly in popularity.

Q: What is the daily schedule of the camp?
A: The campers will actually go through a different day each day because our activities change every day. The basic outline, however, will be the same:

  • 9-10 am Group Time (They will spend time getting to know the other campers)
  • 10:30-11:30 am Tennis
  • 12-1 pm Lunch
  • 1-2 pm Arts & Crafts (This will change every day)
  • 2:30-3:30 pm Activity 2 & Pool (This will change every day)
  • 3:30-4 pm Clean-up and get ready for pick-up
Tuesday - Friday:
  • 9-9:30 am Group Time (They will spend time getting to know the other campers)
  • 9:30-10:30 am Golf
  • 11 am-12 pm Tennis
  • 12-1 pm Lunch
  • 1-2 pm Activities 1 & 2
  • 2-3:30 pm Pool
  • 3:30-4 pm Clean-up and get ready for pick-up
Q: What is the camp's approach to discipline and how do you handle conflicts between campers?
A: We do not allow bullying whatsoever. Every child will be treated equally and given the chance to adjust any misbehavior through team building exercises. Any further discipline needed will be brought to the Camp Director personally, and the campers will be spoken with about the importance of respecting each other. Should any problem escalate beyond this “coaching and counseling”, we will meet with the parents. If absolutely necessary, a camper may be asked not to return if he/she cannot behave properly. We do not expect any camper to have to go through this. Our activities are based on respect, safety, confidence and team building. From the start we foster good moral judgment on the part of our campers.

Q: Will the camp be taking field trips?
A: The camp, unfortunately, cannot afford to take field trips unless we have a certain number of children signed up. The guarantee of that number is never certain, so we must use the field trips as a bonus activity for our campers. Transportation fees are what limit us financially.

Q: Will there be instructional swimming and/or will you have free swim?
A: We do not have instructional swimming. Monday through Friday the campers will have free time to swim at our Clubhouse pool at the end of the camp day.

Q: May non-members' children/grandchildren come to the camp?
A: Absolutely! Kids love to have fun with their friends, so we invite any of your friends' campers (or your camper's friends) to come to our camp. Please note that the Multiple Camper Discount is only available to immediate family members.


Of course if you have any other questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact us!
