  • 10 DAY PUNCH PASS

    Campers will get a key chain fob to swipe in each day!

    If punch pass was purchased online, parents will need to come to the administration office to pick up the key chain fob before children can attend camp. Scanners will be located in the beach office or next to ET sign-in sheets.

    The punch pass option allows campers to attend ten camp days throughout the 10-week sessions. Each sibling will need their own pass for this new system. The fob will not scan twice in one day. If you lose your fob, there is a $5 replacement charge.

    Smaller passes are available for the last week of camp. PASS USAGE CAN BE SEEN ON YOUR CLPD ONLINE ACCOUNT.
