Summer Camp FAQ

Summer Camp registration begins at 2:00 p.m. and runs until 4:00 p.m. on the program start date. Pick-up is at 2:00 p.m. on Friday. Parents are welcome to join us for Closing Campfire at the amphitheater, which begins at 2:00 p.m. NOTE: Rain location will be the dining hall.

As always, Camp Wartburg encourages parents to allow their children the full camp experience. That being said, if you would like to pick your child up early on Friday, please provide a signed note at registration listing the time you wish to arrive, and we will do our best to have their things together at that time.

Camp Wartburg employs college-age adults as summer Small Group Leaders (SGLs). All SGLs are trained in first aid and CPR by nationally-recognized organizations, such as the American Red Cross and YMCA. Lifeguards are also certified by these two organizations. SGLs also attend a week-long and intensive mandatory training. All staff members 18 years of age and older are required to have a current background check on file.

Our Kitchen Manager, Terri Maier, would be happy to address any dietary restrictions with you. Contact Terri Maier at 618-830-7840 (Terri’s Cell).

Medications are distributed four times a day: breakfast (8:00 a.m.), lunch (noon), dinner (5:30 p.m.) and snack (8:30 p.m.). Inhalers and EpiPens are kept with your child’s supervising SGL. All SGLs also carry emergency first-aid kits.

The camp store has a limited number of items available at registration on Sunday and is open Friday evening during pick-up at the dining hall. Campers do not need to have any money with them during the week. The only exception would be paintball campers, as they may wish to purchase more paintballs at Wacky Warriors.

No. For the safety of our campers, visitors are not permitted during camp sessions.

Yes. Coming to camp with a friend can be lots of fun. To make sure you get into the same cabin group as your friends, please put his/her name(s) in the designated space online or on the registration form.

Financial assistance may be available. Contact 618-939-7715 ext 13 or ruth_hertlein@lcfs.org to see if your child qualifies. You can also ask about our multi-child and multi-week discounts.
