We no longer require camp families to attend an in person Sunday orientation. Instead, an orientation email will be sent to you on the Friday prior to your child’s week of camp. The orientation email will include a video tour of our facility; introductions of staff; and your child’s group assignment, counselor name, and schedule for the week. If you would like to see our facility in person prior to the start of camp, we encourage you to attend one of our Spring Open Houses, which are on Sunday, April 25th and Sunday, May 23rd from 11am to 3pm. This is a great time to tour our facility, meet staff, and enjoy lunch and activities. If you are unable to attend, or would like to see our facility sooner, please call our office at (707) 545-5906 to arrange a private tour. Once our summer camp season begins, we are a closed campus for the safety of the children on site and will not be able to accommodate tours, so please make arrangements prior to the beginning of the summer camp season.
All campers will undergo a brief lice check upon arrival to camp. Please note that if lice or lice eggs are found, you must bring your child home to undergo lice treatment. This process should take about 24 hours or more. After all lice have been removed from your child and their belongings, they may return to camp. They will be subject to a second lice check to ensure that all lice have been fully removed. No refunds are given for dates missed due to this policy.
Having lice has no relevance to a child’s cleanliness or a parent’s nurturing. There should be no stigma with regards to having lice. Lice is contagious, and like catching a cold or having a fever it is not the fault of the parents or child. When you have groups of children gathering: school, camp, sports teams, etc – just like a cold will spread, so will lice. That is why here at Cloverleaf Ranch we are very diligent about thoroughly inspecting every child’s hair. We treat children with lice the same as we would treat any other child with a contagious condition: with respect and compassion. Since lice is contagious, any person with lice needs to be treated and cleared of lice before they can return to a group setting
