Registration: Sundays 1:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m.
Parents: Camp registration includes checking all campers for lice. We are requesting that you check your child for lice before arriving at CYB. If you are not sure if your child has lice please see your healthcare provider to have your child evaluated. If upon evaluation, your child has nits or eggs present, they will be sent home.
Campers are pre-registered online for their classes on a first-come, first-served basis. There are six classes to register for. All campers must be accompanied by an authorized adult until the registration process is complete. Please have all camper medications ready to check in with the nurse at the time of the registration process.
There will be no registrations processed before 1:00 p.m. Our staff will be occupied with other duties, so please do not plan to register before this time. The cafeteria will not be serving lunch to the public on Sundays; provisions for you and your camper(s) should be made before hand.
Checkout: Sundays 9:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m.
The camper should be picked up in the gym area. All campers must be signed out with the staff member on duty. Campers will be allowed to leave only with an authorized person, unless prior arrangements are made with the CYB administration.
Letters and Phone Calls:
Campers love to get letters, packages, and e-mails from home. Please send them early so they will be sure to arrive while the camper is still at camp. We encourage you to write rather than call; kids love hearing their name during mail call. Campers may receive e-mails but cannot send them. If you wish to email your camper use the following: firstname.lastname@example.org
Due to the nature of our program, it is best for all incoming calls to be limited to emergencies only. This keeps our phones available for business and emergency use. Our staff will assist campers in making any emergency calls home if necessary.
Follow U.S. 270 from Hot Springs or Mount Ida to 227. Head North toward Mountain Pine for 6 miles. Just before Mountain Pine, turn right at the Weyerhaeuser Lumber Mill. Follow 227 approximately 4 miles to the camp sign and turn left. The camp is 2 miles from the camp sign on 227.

Health and Safety:
In planning for the camping season we have endeavored to create as safe an environment and activities as possible while still allowing the campers to experience adventure and to be challenged physically. Our staff is carefully trained to ensure the safety of our campers. A nurse is available at the camp 24 hours a day.
We have limited accident insurance on each camper. In case of emergency, parents are notified as soon as possible. Any medical treatment other than camp accidents are the responsibility of the parents. All campers will undergo a health screening at registration. Vegetarian meals are served.
It is required for each camper to bring their own medications, and if these are over-the-counter medications, they must be in their own containers.
All camper medications must be registered and placed in the care of the health personnel at registration. Please indicate on the health history form any medicines that are to be taken during the campers stay. In the event of a medical problem, the camp will make all attempts to contact the parents or guardian. Please make sure we have the best phone number to reach you.
