Camp Sequoia Details

Welcome to Blithewold’s Camp Sequoia! Your child is sure to enjoy their week at Blithewold with plenty of outdoor exploration, art, lessons, games and activities related to each unique daily theme.

Listed below are some more details, a list of what to bring to camp, and information on pick-up and drop-off.

Pick-up & Drop-off

Each morning begins at 9:00 a.m., and afternoon pick-up is at 3:00 p.m. Both drop-off and pick-up will be in Blithewold’s restored Carriage House, a barn-like building located next to Blithewold’s parking lot. We ask that parents please be punctual; Blithewold staff cannot easily accommodate early or late arrivals/departures unless we are notified in advance.

Upon arrival, please park in Blithewold’s main parking lot and proceed through the fenced-in camp garden/play area. A sign on the fence will direct you to “check-in” your child at the side entrance to the Carriage House. Please pick-up your child at the same side entrance at the end of the day unless otherwise specified. A photo ID will be required to sign out each child.

 

Emergency Policy

If your child can not attend camp due to illness or other reasons, please call us no later than 10 am at 401-253-2707. Please note that there will be no refunds for days missed due to illness or other reasons. Also, camp tuition will not be reimbursed if we are given less that two weeks notice. If you give two weeks notice, we reimburse in full minus a $25 administration fee.

Snack time is 10 am, an optional second snack will take place in the afternoon after lunch. We will provide a healthy morning snack. Participants are welcome to bring there own morning snack. Participants can also bring their own healthy afternoon snack. Please inform the camp director immediately if there are any food allergies. We occasionally do food preparation activities for snack. Please let us know if you prefer your child to opt out and only eat his/her own snack.

Many activities will take place outdoors. Please arrive with your child already wearing sunscreen. We will re-apply after lunch, so please pack sunscreen as well as bug spray.

A gym bag or backpack is recommended for belongings. Please label with your family’s last name. Each camper will place belongings in a “cubby” at the beginning of the day.
