Before camp, you will receive luggage tags from LLYC in the mail. These are for labeling large items like trunks, suitcases, duffels, and fans with your camper’s name and gender. When you arrive at camp, staff members will greet you at your car and help you place these items in the correct location for transportation to your camper’s cabin. If you have been to camp before, please remove old luggage tags before adding this year’s tag to ensure we deliver your luggage to the correct location.
Check out our packing list for more info about trunk sizes and what to bring in your luggage!
All cabin assignments are made based on grade. We do our very best to honor reciprocal roommate requests for campers in the same grade. One request is allowed per camper. Unfortunately, we cannot guarantee your request, but we will sure try. Bunks are randomly pre-assigned by counselors prior to your camper’s arrival (there is no need to arrive early to get a bunk for your camper). If your camper has a special need that requires a certain bunk, please contact us so we can make arrangements prior to your arrival.
We have a first-class healthcare program and a team that is passionate about taking good care of our campers while they are here with us. Please visit our Health and Safety page to learn more about the care we seek to provide for our campers. Additionally, please visit the Forms page of our website to review the information you need to submit to us so that we can care for your child well while they are at camp with us.
One of the forms you will fill out for each camper is their Health History form. Nursing staff will review your camper’s health histories before camp starts. If we have any questions, we will call you to talk through things. If you have health concerns you would like us to be aware of, feel free to contact Candi Douthit directly. It is much easier to have a plan to support the camper prior to check-in day so they can have the best time ever! And of course, our healthcare staff will be happy to chat with you on Opening Day if your camper has any medical needs that you forgot to mention in forms or that you’d just like to talk through in person.
Medications – For safety purposes, no campers or staff are allowed to keep medications in camper cabins. Representatives from our healthcare team will be present on Opening Day to help check in your camper’s medications and chat with you about their administration.
If your camper will be coming to camp with medications, please view the Medications at Camp section of our Health and Safety page for lots more important information on what you need to know, how to prep well, complete all the right forms, and what to expect for medication check-in on Opening Day and medication pick-up on Closing Day.
We screen all incoming campers for head lice when they arrive, even if they’ve recently been screened elsewhere. Lice are more common than you may think, and they affect everyone. A specialty lice treatment company handles lice screening and treatment for LLYC. If lice or nits are found, this company will treat campers on-site for $250. Treatment is fully guaranteed. Should you choose not to have your child treated on-site, we will require you to remove your child from camp to receive treatment. Your camper can then return to camp the following day, be rechecked and admitted to camp. We are sorry for any inconvenience that this may cause you or your family, but we trust you understand the seriousness of this issue and its effect on the LLYC community.
Closing Days happen on Saturday. Check-out begins at 8:00 a.m. and should conclude by 11:00 a.m. Please plan on arriving between 8 and 10 a.m. After you find your camper(s) and load up their luggage, you will have a chance to hang out for a bit, grab some brunch from our Ranch House, visit with counselors and leadership staff, check out the session video, and shop at our camp store if desired. Make sure to grab your Camper Highlights Card from your camper’s counselors, and don’t forget to pick up your meds from the healthcare staff before you leave! When you’re ready (we know it’s hard!), give lots of hugs to your camp friends, and say “see you soon!”
As a new feature, we will have a brief, optional Closing Day message from one of our directors for parents, staff, and families to attend on Closing Day. This will happen at 9:00 a.m. for Singing Hills and 10:00 a.m. for Echo Valley. It will be a quick opportunity to hear a few session highlights and our hopes for campers as they are headed home.
For liability and safety reasons, please do not bring your pets to camp on Closing Day.
