General Information

Outpost CamperThe camp day is 9:00 AM to 3:15 PM. Parents may drop off their children between 8:45 and 9:00 AM and pick them up between 3:00 and 3:15 PM. Prior to the beginning of your child's session, we will offer an Open House where you will be able to see the drop off and pick up area, meet the camp director, and receive your child's shirts and car placard. Contact our office if you have additional questions.

Each camper brings a backpack with a water bottle, peanut-free lunch from home, and a swimsuit and towel. Please note that all electronics are strictly prohibited at camp, including smart watches and all phones of any type. We serve a daily snack in the afternoon, such as crackers or cuties.

We swim Mondays through Fridays at Fairbanks Ranch County Club in Rancho Santa Fe. Each camper is individually evaluated on their swimming skills on the first day of each session, so that the best level of supervision and coaching can be provided at all times.
