    CAMP WEEK # 5 (July 23 - 27, 2018): CAMP HOOVER ON SONG LAKE IN TULLY!
    Bus Monitors will be: Justin, Aliyah, Cecilia and Nadya
    For this camp only, the drop-off/pick-up stop will be at 412 Spencer Street on the grassy side of the building. The bus will leave Spencer Street at 8:30 a.m, SHARP. and arrive back at approximately 3:45 p.m.(we will depart camp at 3:00 and 81 N is down to one lane in Tully due to construction).  Our transportation policies and procedures are still applicable. Our software system has been down and we have been unable to send a reminder email ( we are hopeful it will be up and running by Friday).

    A few housekeeping items: Per the Health Department regulations, Camp Hoover is required to begin Day 1 of camp with a tour of the property and a fire drill; SNEAKERS and SOCKS are a must at camp. There are NO EXCEPTIONS. Sandals can be worn at the waterfront only; There will be no swimming or boating on Monday; The weather forecast is not looking favorable - the Camp Hoover staff will do their best to include as many outdoor activities as possible. If it isn't thunder/lightening or a torrential downpour, activities will still happen outdoors; The swim test will take place on Tuesday if there is no thunder/lightening; Please send a peanut-free lunch with your child, daily. Limited refrigeration is available. Stoves and microwaves are not available; Please send the following items everyday in a backpack that your camper can manage: 1 bathing suit (except Monday), 1 beach towel, water shoes are recommended but not required, sunscreen, insect repellent (non-aerosol, containing less than 12% DEET), 1 pair of extra socks/underwear (these items tend to get lost when changing for swimming), 1 sweatshirt/jacket, rain gear (with hood), and a hat with visor.

    We ask for your patience and cooperation as we work to make this first year as successful as possible. We also ask that you review the Camper's Code of Conduct with your child prior to camp. If a child is not acting appropriately on the bus or at camp, we will call home for the child to be picked up early.

    Camp Hoover will be following a theme of the day -  feel free to have your child dress accordingly but it is not required:
    Monday: Wacky Wear
    Tuesday: Neon
    Wednesday: Sports Team
    Thursday: Disney
    Friday: Carnival
