Where are you Located?QT Camp doesn't have a campus or a building. Plan to meet daily at 8:30 and 3:00 to join your camp. We're always on the move, so alternate schedules cannot be accommodated. We meet at the Scottish Rite Parking Lot, 1051 Sam Rittenberg Blvd
I have health and safety needs... (Rx at camp, special concerns)I have health and safety needs... (Rx at camp, special concerns) Campers must be pre-screened before applying to camp if they take medications during the day, or have physical, emotional, or behavioral needs. We welcome campers of most abilities, with good communication from caregivers. Our staff have experience with a wide range of campers, and we can accommodate some allergies, medications, and physical differences. However, because we don't have a building or nurse, we are not allowed to host campers with certain medical needs. Our program structure can be difficult for some campers with physical or emotional differences. Advance communication helps us prepare our staff appropriately, and helps create a more successful camp for your child.
What if it Rains?We are open on rainy days! We usually find picnic shelters and play games, and we'll have fun despite a dreary day. Our outdoor activities operate in light rain, but we may cancel activities in unsafe conditions - again, we'll still have camp, even if the main activity is canceled. We do not cancel outdoor camp days or go indoors during rain, thunder, or hot temperatures.
