Top Ten Frequently Asked Questions

What time does the bus pick up my child for camp?
Young People’s Camp of SI uses 20 passenger air conditioned buses. We will pick up each child between 7:30 and 8:15 with door to door transportation. Children will be home between 3:45 and 4:30 in the afternoon.
What do I do if my child misses the bus?
Try and have your child outside waiting 10 minutes before the bus is supposed t o pick him or her up. If the bus fails to make it to the house, please call the bus company as soon as possible. Sometimes, they come back to pick up your child.
What do I do if my child is sick and will not be going to camp for the day?
If your child cannot attend camp for the delay, please call the bus company as soon as possible to notify them of this. The driver will notify me when he comes to camp in the morning.
What should my child wear or bring during the day?
I highly recommend that all children wear SNEAKERS every day. They will help cut down on blisters, bug bites, and small injuries. Wear light clothing, and always drink plenty of water. Pack lunch on a daily basis and only bring towels on swim days.
What should my child bring on swim days?
On swim days I find it easier for the child to wear the bathing suit all day because it easier to avoid changing especially for the younger child. When we are at the pool the children will be allowed to have their towel, and flip flops on deck. Please pack sunscreen!
Who will be supervising my child each day?
Campers will be supervised in a group with an 8:1 camper to counselor ratio. For children of the age between 4 and 5 they will be supervised with a 4:1 ratio. The counselors will be college age with junior counselors in high school. My assistant directors will also be supervising along with me.
Will there be any trips that require extra money?
During the summer I try to limit the paid trips to just 2. Everything else is included in the program fee. I will send home and email notices about these trips.
When does camp have to be paid for?
All money for camp should be paid by June 15th of that year. I have payment plans that are available to start as early as when the summer ends. Most people start the payment plan in January.
When does my child receive their camp shirts and bags?
On the child’s first day of camp they will receive their shirts, bags, and water bottle. They will also be given an orientation of the rules and regulations of camp on that day.
What is the best way to reach the camp/Keith?
The absolute best way to reach the camp during the summer is emailing Keith Glauber. You may also call the camp at 732-768-2279 between the hours of 7 and 4. After that and during the offseason please call 718-701-3600.
