Sea Kayak Connecticut will be following all Public Health Guidelines for Summer Camps. Programming is conducted either outside or in a well-ventilated space. All camp counselors are vaccinated and boosted.
Payment and Cancellation Policy
Camp cancellations with 30 days or more notice before the scheduled start time will receive a 50% refund. Cancellations with less than 30 days notice will result in forfeiture of the entire camp fee. If you replace your space in the camp or it is filled from Sea Kayak Connecticut’s wait list within these 30 days you will only forfeit 50% of the camp program fee. Failure to attend on a scheduled day and time will forfeit the camp fee for that day. Makeup days are not offered.
Rain will not keep us off the water, so please pack rain gear if showers are in the forecast. Should Sea Kayak Connecticut determine that the weather conditions are unsuitable to safely be out on the water, we will restructure the day and resume camp activities under cover.
For All Camp Programs
Comfortable life jackets will be provided and must be properly worn by all participants.
The SKCT waiver and release form is required for each camper. Please complete all paperwork prior to the first day of camp.
Online Registration Form
Registration must be completed for each camper prior to the first day of camp. Please include the names and phone numbers of all individuals authorized to pick up your child. Your child can only leave with someone listed on the emergency form.
On-time arrivals are required for our program to run smoothly. For morning sessions, campers should be dropped off between 9:15 and 9:30 am; they should be picked up between 12:30 and 12:45pm. For afternoon sessions, campers should be dropped off between 12:45 and 1:00 pm; they should be picked up between 4:00 and 4:15pm. Campers should not be dropped off before 9:15am or 12:45 p.m. Similarly, campers picked up after 12:45 and after 4:15 will incur a service surcharge of $30.00/half-hour applied to the credit card on file.
Drop off and Pick Up
The driveway and parking garage at the rear (east side) of the building will be utilized for dropping off and picking up campers. On the first day of camp, we request that you park in the parking garage and escort your child to the picnic tables in the lower plaza, where our counselors and director will be waiting to greet you (Please do not park on Riverside Ave or in the lots adjacent to the shop). After the first day of camp, campers should be dropped off and picked up at the lower plaza. If you arrive early or need additional time, you may park inside the parking garage to avoid blocking the driveway. Your child will only be permitted to leave with someone listed on the emergency form.
Self Drop Off and Pickup
If your child will be walking, skating, or riding a bicycle to and from camp, you must indicate this in the online registration form.
Check-in / Check-out
Campers must be checked in and checked out daily. Please ensure that your child checks in with their counselor each day. Counselors are responsible for campers during designated camp times. Please be prompt at check-out. Campers picked up after 12:45 and after 4:15 will incur a service charge of $30.00/half-hour applied to the credit card on file.
Medications and Allergies
These items that we take seriously. It is critically important that the director and staff know of any medical conditions or allergies. If your child requires an inhaler, an Epi-Pen, or prescription medication, please bring these with you and speak directly with the Director on the first day.
Ice Cream Fridays
Sea Kayak Connecticut campers will celebrate their new skills, adventures, and friendships with an ice cream in the last hour of each Friday camp session. If you do not wish your child to participate in ice-cream Fridays, please indicate this in the online registration form.
