Camp Zoom FAQ’s

A list of the most asked questions about Camp Zoom

Schedule

What does a typical day at Camp Zoom look like?

Camp zoom check-in begins at 9:00.  During check-in kids have free-time play where they can choose from many different activities.  During check-in some of our leaders are assigned to areas, while others are moving around, greeting kids and getting them involved. After check-in we will gather the kids inside for our all camp cheer and quest of the day to earn the ever popular snocone points! From there the kids break into their activity groups and do their assigned centers or activities, and outdoor time.  Our high-energy large group follows with worship, bible stories and the ever popular Kiki and Lou!  After large group our kids get ready to go to lunch.  After lunch and some free-time play (like recess) the kids move inside for some quiet time.  Quiet time is followed by our all camp games, small group time, and more time in their activity groups.

Check-in/out

Where do I check my child in for Camp Zoom?

Camp Zoom check-in takes place on the green space at 9:00am. There will be signage directing you to the proper check-in stations. Please note all children need to be accompanied by a responsible adult to be checked-in.

Rain day check-in?

For a rain day you will check your child in the South lower lobby. Your child must still be checked in by an approved adult.

What happens if I’m late checking into Camp Zoom?

If you arrive late to check-in, please stop at the Camp Office located in the Gym lobby to get checked-in.

What do I do if someone is not on my child’s approved pick up list?

You can add additional people for approved pick-up during morning drop off by filling out an approved pick up card. You can also add people by calling the Camp office at 262.364.5364

Friend requests

Why doesn’t Camp Zoom have a friend request option?

When a child signs up for Camp Zoom, they are also choosing an activity group to be a part of.   When kids are split into groups, they will be split by activity group.  To ensure your kids will be together all day long, they should be signed up for the same activity group.

Medical

My child needs to take a medication during camp hours.  Are you able to give it to him?

Yes!  We have a medic on-site to help care for all needs including medication.  For more information please click here

What do I need to do if my child is sick? How will I be notified if my child gets sick at camp?

For a minor illness where a camper will be missing a day of camp you do not need to notify us. For an illness that will force your child to miss multiple days of camp- contact the camp registrar zoom@campvertical.org

If your child gets sick at camp the camp medic will contact you at the numbers you have provided.

General

What does my child need to wear?

Kids should dress comfortably for the weather. Shoes with backs are strongly recommended because kids will be running around. If additional clothing is needed (ex. a dress up day, a water day) a note and e-mail will go home with your child. Children will be outside most days during check-in, lunch and check-out please apply sunscreen on your child before arriving at camp.

What do I need to bring to camp?

For most activities there is no required equipment. We do ask if you are not purchasing a lunch to provide one for your child. (Except for Thursday which is hot dog day.) For all other camps you will be notified via a postcard of any additional items/equipment to bring in for that day.

Heat issues?

We have water available at all times. We also carefully monitor the heat index if it is 95 degrees Fahrenheit or above we bring all children indoors.

How do I get information to my child during camp hours?

For Zoom please contact the Camp office at 262.364.5364

Do you offer scholarships or payments plans?

Yes!  We don’t want cost to keep kids from camp.  To apply for a scholarship or set-up a payment plan please contact our registrar zoom@campvertical.org
