When should I drop my child off?

Please drop off your child between 8:30 and 9:00am or between noon and 12:30 for the afternoon only option.  From Rayville Road, turn left into our main entrance. Follow the gravel drive (slowly!) toward the bleachers. Camp staff will greet your car and ask for your camper’s name.

When should I pick up my child?

Children should be picked up between 4:00 and 4:30pm. IMPORTANT: you must sign out your child before heading home. 

Can my child be in the same group with a friend?

Grouping requests should be indicated in the appropriate form on the registration page. You can email a request later if necessary, as long as we receive the written request at least 2 weeks before the start of the session. Campers can request to be with one other friend (with the exception for a group of 3 friends).

What is your refund policy?

For those who cancel more than two weeks prior to the start of the week, we are able to refund any amount paid beyond the $100.00 deposit.  Cancellations that occur within two weeks of camp will not be offered a refund. However, the amount beyond the deposit can be applied to the balance for other camp weeks on your account or applied as a credit for future summers. As always, the $100.00 deposit is non-refundable.

COVID-19 Updates:

If GVOLC is closed due to changing COVID-19 State/Local policies the total cost of registration will be refunded minus any applicable credit card processing fees.

If the parent/guardian decides to pull their child and GVOLC remains open, the parent/guardian forfeits the $100 standard deposit per child.  Any amount of total registration cost may also be applied to next years registration upon the parent’s/guardian’s request.

Any deposit kept by GVOLC and not applied to next years registrations, is considered a tax deductible donation.  Upon request GVOLC will provide proof of donation.

What do you do in the event of bad weather?

We operate all of our activities rain or shine, so please prepare your child in the morning with what he/she will need to enjoy the day outdoors.  According to our risk management plan, we do not allow for outdoor activities if it is storming.  GVOLC is a American Camp Association accredited camp which also follows the Association for Challenge Course Technologies standards pertaining to challenge course usage. Should the weather become threatening in any way, your child will be sheltered in the nearest building until the storm subsides. Rainy-day pick up will be held in the large red barn along the gravel drive, after the bleachers. We will do our best to be efficient with this process, but please be patient as it can be confusing.

There is a chance we get hit with a winter storm late in our season. If calling a “snow day” is necessary, we will inform parents as soon as possible if we are closed.

How many staff will be available to assist my child during the day?

A ratio of at least 8 to 1 will maintained in all adult/children interactions. This includes time spent doing outdoor activities, in the computer lab and during “study hall” periods.

Is your program safe?

We understand that there are risks involved with any outdoor and adventure activities, however, we pride ourselves on being as safe as possible and consider both physical and emotional safety. We extensively train our staff in risk management, CPR/First Aid, ropes course safety, and managing group dynamics. Our ropes course is inspected quarterly to follow the Association or Challenge Course Technology standards.  We also follow a “challenge by choice” philosophy and will never force a youth to do something are uncomfortable with. Safety will always be our number one priority.
