For Parents


Confirmations
 You will receive an email confirming your registration after you register online or your paper registration has been processed. The email will contain links to the confirmation page on our web site. There is a guide for: Girls; Parents/Guardians; Overnighters; Volunteers. Please read these guides as they contain important information for a successful day camp experience. A reminder will be emailed to you approximately two weeks before camp. 
  
Health History Form
Girls are required to have a completed Health History form (part of the registration form) prior to the opening day of their camp session. This form must be received on or before the first day of camp or the camper will be sent home.

Camp Buddies
Many girls come to camp to make new friends. However, some girls choose to come with a buddy. Girls who wish to be buddies at camp need to register for the same program and session. Please submit registration forms together or register online at the same time. We place buddies together if only one buddy is listed and they list each other.

Transportation
Bus transportation is available from many locations throughout the Milwaukee area for an additional $50 per session.  Be sure to be on time to the bus and have your pick-up card.  The pick up card will be sent with your two-week confirmation email.
