REGISTRATION AND CANCELATIONS
WHAT IS INCLUDED IN THE CAMP PRICE?
Camp fees include access to the best week of summer through activities such as archery, kayaking, gaga ball, swimming and so much more.
WHAT IS THE CANCELATION POLICY?
If the cancelation is made a week prior to the start of the camp week, you will receive a 100% refund. If the cancelation is made within a week of the start of the camp week, a cancelation fee of $15 will be applied and the remainder will be refunded.
HOW DOES THE WAITLIST WORK?
The waitlist is a way for your campers to have a chance to get into a camp session — if a spot becomes available dependent on cancellations. The waitlist is timestamped from whenever you join it and the waitlisted families will be contacted in the order of the list.
WHAT IS A SESSION?
A session is for the whole week. If you are registering your camper for a week session, you can expect your camper to have the opportunity to participate in all camp activities listed on the website throughout the week (weather permitting), and one session on the lake’s floating water park, WhoaZone, and so much more fun!
WHAT IS A DROP-IN?
A drop-in is for a day. If you are registering your camper for a drop-in day, you can expect your camper to have the opportunity to participate in the camp activities scheduled for the day they will be attending. The camp schedule is made up of the activities listed on the website spread out throughout the whole week (weather permitting). To guarantee your camper gets to participate in all camp activities, register them for a session!
HOW CAN YOU PURCHASE A CAMP T-SHIRT FOR YOUR CAMPER?
After selecting the week you would like your camper to attend, the registration system will ask you if you would like to add any merchandise to your cart. If you would like your camper to take home a Dove Creek Day Camp T-shirt, please select their size then add it to your cart. If you are having any issues purchasing, please email Taylor Johnson, Outdoor Programs Coordinator at firstname.lastname@example.org, or you may call 817.410.3399.

Campers must have a completed Health Form brought with them when going through the camper’s check in. ALL medications must be given to a Dove Creek Counselor in their original containers during check in. Prescribed medications must be clearly marked with the child’s name, medication, and physician’s name.
WHAT DO WATER DAYS ENTAIL?

WHAT KIND OF TRAINING DO COUNSELORS GO THROUGH?
Each Dove Creek Day Camp counselor goes through a two-week-long staff training going over all aspects of camp including all activities, safety protocols, and what to do in the event of an emergency. Each Dove Creek Day Camp counselor is CPR certified.
