Crazy Sock day on Friday was a huge success.  We loved seeing all of our campers in the many different types of socks and styles.  This Friday is Hat Day!  Wear your favorite hat to camp.

Looking forward to our second week of camp.

Sumfun is off to a great start.  It is so great to see everyone in their camp shirts each day.  We know that our new red shirts are a popular item.  We have placed a new camp shirt order and new shirts will be arriving shortly.

This Friday is a Wacky Day and we are asking all of our campers to come to camp in Crazy Socks.  One of our teachers will be wearing hot dog socks!

We are all looking forward to Sumfun starting on Monday, July 8.

Here are just a few reminders:

First Day of Camp -- doors will open at 8:30am. 

*All drop off and pickups are at Bishop Dunn

*Extended care begins at 7:30 and ends at 5:30 each day.  There is a flat rate of $6.00/hour for this service.  Campers who are not picked up by 4:30, will be placed in extension.  Doors will NOT open until 7:30.

*If you must pick up your child early from camp, it must be before 3:30.  The final half hour of camp, the staff is involved in finishing classes and transporting campers to their pick up locations.  Picking up between 3:30-4:00 impedes the transition from camp activities to dismissal.  Thank you for your cooperation.


*Please pack a bathing suit and towel each day as the children do have the option to swim each afternoon.  

*Please have your child wear his or her camp shirt each day.  Additional camp shirts will be available to purchase.

*Remember to pack rain gear and an umbrella!  We do move in the rain (we do not move the children outside during thunderstorms).

*Don't forget to pack a healthy snack!  The campers have time during the camp day to have a snack in between activities.  Limited snacks are provided by SumFUN, but feel free to bring your own.  Bring a water bottle each day!

*Sumfun Lunch Menu is posted on the website and in the lobby

*Cell phones are not to be used during the camp day.  Campers who have cell phones need to keep them in their bags. Campers who use cell phones during the day will have the cell phone confiscated by a director and returned to a parent at the end of the camp day.  Thank you for your cooperation in this matter. SUMMER FUNDAMENTALS IS NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR LOST OR STOLEN CELL PHONES. 

*There has been a change to the classes being offered this summer.  Our bees and aviation class will not be running.  In its place The Children's School of Yoga will be providing yoga instruction each day for our campers.  Miss Danielle will work with the campers on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays and Miss Jennifer will work with our campers on Tuesdays and Thursdays.

*We are looking forward to a safe and happy summer!! :)

Behavior Policy for Camp:  

Camp Discipline Policy It is our belief that a safe camp is a happy camp!  In order to ensure a safe, orderly environment, we have implemented the following discipline policy here at SumFUN.  Please review this policy with your child, so s/he understands what is expected of him/her.

Strike One: If a camper is so distracting or disruptive that a counselor needs to remove him/her from the group; a camp director will be called and the camper will spend the rest of the day with the director.  The parent will be notified at dismissal.

Strike Two: If a camper is removed from the group a second time, the parent will be called and the camper will be asked to leave for the remainder of the day.

Strike Three: In the unlikely event that a camper is removed from the group a third time, the parent will be notified and the camper will be removed from camp for the remainder of the summer.


Summer Fundamentals has a permit to operate as required by the Orange County Department of Health. This camp is required to be inspected twice annually. Copies of inspection reports are on file and are available for review at the O.C. Dept. of Health, Division of Environmental Health, 124 Main Street, Goshen, NY.
