FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Ages 4.5 – 14.
Campers are grouped by age and stay with their groups for sports and activities throughout the day. Small group ratios help us foster an inclusive environment built on safety and successes.
Group sizes are at a ratio of 1 counselor per 10-12 campers.
Groups are named for local sports teams and the campers love representing their groups!
We will do our best to honor all friend requests. Friend requests can be submitted with camper registration or emailed to us at email@example.com. If the children vary in age, they may be moved to the younger age group. This is common with sibling requests.
*In order for us to match requests, the names must exactly match the friend's registration form.
This is the number one question from new parents! We have been running summer camps since 1998 so we completely understand the need to keep campers hydrated and cool. The campers have fun playing inside and outside throughout the day. We love our facilities! Each location allows us use of their indoor gym, classrooms, and cafeteria. In these spaces, the kids have a great time playing sports and games inside! If an activity, like archery or water slides, requires being outside, the staff is very aware and attentative to the camper needs.

Hubbard staff will be on deck and in the water with the campers.
City Lifeguards guard the pool at all times.
At Camp Hubbard, we believe that Summer is the time to spend unplugged, away from the screens and technology. With that philosophy, we will not allow campers to be on their phones during camp. We also acknowledge that cell phones are necessary for some family situations. Therefore, if phones are brought onto campus, they will be turned over to the Camp Director who will keep them stored for the entirety of the day, until the camper goes home. If parents need to get in touch with their campers, they can call our camp phones which connect to the director on site. Camp phone numbers are on the Contact Us page, listed by location
