Only campers who have signed up for Extended Day (Zusatzbetreuung) may be on campus before 9am or after 5pm. Any camper who is not signed up for Extended Day and is on campus before or after normal camp hours will be charged €10 per session.

Please note that Extended Care is not offered for all camps!

 

What to bring to camp
Water will be provided throughout the day, so please pack a refillable water bottle for your child.

Please also send your child with two small snacks, one for the morning and one for the afternoon. A warm lunch will be provided by KCA for All Day and Morning Only Campers.

Please send your child with clothes suitable for changing weather – we will still partake in our sporting activities given light rain so waterproof shoes and rain coats will be necessary on rainy days. On hotter days he/ she should have a hat and sunscreen.

 

Closing Ceremony
Every Friday at 4:30pm the end of camp closing ceremony will be held. All groups will present a skit that they practiced in theater club throughout the week and sing some KCA songs. They will then receive their certificates. All parents are encouraged to attend. This is a great way to end a fantastic camp session.

 

Lost & Found
Each summer, we end up with a significant amount of lost items. Putting your camper’s name on their belongings and letting them know what has been packed for them is the best way of minimizing loss of items. Prior to your campers departure from camp, please check the lost and found.
