What do campers who have not opted into the Super Saturday experience do?

Campers who are not attending the trip will have their own adventure back at camp. This will include waterfront activities, zip line, a movie night, and more!

What are the counselor to camper ratios?

1:5 both on transportation and in the parks!

Can I send money for souvenirs or snacks with my camper?

Yes, however this must be turned in at check-in, sealed in an envelope with the campers name. We cannot hold onto cards, so this will need to be cash! Please remember, lunch is not provided in the park, so your camper will need at least $15-20 for that!

Additionally, any goods purchased in the park are the responsibility of the camper. We will encourage the campers to wait until the end of the day to make souvenir purchases but we cannot replace anything lost or stolen.

What is my cost if my camper has a season pass to the park?

Campers with a season pass will still have to pay the full price of the Super Saturday Trip. Because we are booking group packages, we cannot eliminate the cost of individual campers for park admission, transportation, staffing, etc.

Can I meet my camper in the park or chaperone the trip?

Campers and staff cannot add non-YMCA-approved individuals to their groups. This is to ensure the safety of every camper and no exceptions can be made. If you are a YMCA-approved volunteer that has been background checked and cleared through our association (First Coast YMCA), feel free to reach out about chaperoning!

Why are there only 45 spots available?

This number was selected to due limitations from a safety and transportation standpoint. We would like to keep staffing ratios lower on these trips than our normal camping experiences because of the inherent increased risk of leaving our campgrounds. We still must also have enough staff to provide an incredible experience for campers not opting into the Super Saturday experience. These factors led us to a 2-bus maximum for transportation to the park, with each bus holding 45 campers. Once the first bus fills and a waitlist of 25 or more campers builds, we will open a second bus!
