Why Attend a Rookie Day?
Selecting the right camp for your child is important. Camp is, for most people, not a one-time experience. The camp you choose for your child now should be the camp that he or she experiences for six or more years. These experiences will help guide your child in their social, emotional and recreational growth, positively impacting them for many years to come. That is why making the right choice for your child, among so many different choices, is so important. Rookie Day helps make choosing the right camp a little easier by allowing your child to "taste" the camp experience, while giving you, as parents, a close-up look at the facilities, program, supervision and philosophy while camp is actually in session.
What is a Rookie Day?
Rookie Day is a one-day program that invites prospective campers to participate with other prospective campers and our current campers in the activities, spirit, fun and excitement of Timber Lake Camp. Parents start the day with their children. Then, as the children go off with their counselors and new friends for a power-packed day of activities and fun, parents get a complete tour of our campus, get to meet our staff and speak with our directors. After that, it’s time for parents to have some fun! Enjoy local sites, engage in some of the area’s activities, and lunch in town on us! Return later in the afternoon to pick up who we hope will be our future campers.
Rookie Day Enrollment is Limited
There is no fee to include your child in our Rookie Day. However, in order to maintain a quality experience, we can only take a limited number of boys and girls and do so on a first-come, first-served basis.
Camp Enrollment is Limited
We limit enrollment in each of our age groups and accept our returning campers first. Early enrollment among our returning campers is important as it allows us to determine how many spaces we will have available for new campers. Accordingly, we offer our returning parents a tuition credit if they enroll on or before Visiting Day.
To encourage the early decision of our prospective families who tour camp or participate in one of our Rookie Days, we are extending the same tuition credit to new families who choose to enroll their child.
