2020 Camp Goodwater Parent Handbook

Camp Goodwater offers a variety of traditional and non-traditional day camp activities, including swimming, playing in the park, special events and a weekly field trip.

Camp Goodwater is separated by grade into two large groups of up to 50 kids each, Lower Camp and Upper Camp. Each camp is then divided into 4 groups of about 13 campers based on ages, grades, maturity, gender and other factors. Each group is led by two counselors; we maintain a 15:1 or lower camper-to-staff ratio at all times.

Goodwater field trips will be on Wednesdays for Lower Camp and Thursdays for Upper Camp. Field Trips are subject to change.

Complete refunds (including deposits) will only be given for departmental cancellations. Because of staffing requirements, fees will not be prorated for partial attendance.
