How old does my child need to be to attend?

Bayside Kids Camp is for kids who have completed Kindergarten – 5th grade in the prior school year. Kids ages infant – 5 years old may attend our Little Camp, which happens during Bayside Kids Camp, if their parent is a fulltime volunteer at Bayside Kids Camp.

Will childcare be provided before Bayside Kids camp?

Childcare will not be provided before or after Bayside Kids Camp unless you are serving with us. Doors open at 8:30am each morning, and the program will end each day by 4pm. Please be prompt when picking up your child.

Will lunch or snack be served?

Snacks will be served each day, one in the morning and one in the afternoon. You will need to pack a lunch for your child each day. If your child has any type of food allergy please note that on your registration and be prepared to pack both a lunch and two snacks for your child each day. We are not able to serve any food to children who have any food allergy.

Can my child volunteer?

Youth who are 13 years old may volunteer but must be an active Bayside Kids Dream Team member by June 1 of this year and recommended by their campus Kids Director. If your youth would like to serve at Bayside Kids Camp please have them contact their Kids Director and they will be sent a link to register.

Can my child be in the same group as their friends?

When you are registering your child you are provided a space to include the name of child who is the same grade level as your child. Before listing a friend in the same grade as your child please confirm that they are registered to attend the same campus as your child. We will do our best to accommodate requests, but cannot guarantee.

My child has a food allergy.

We want to support your family with excellence at Bayside Kids Camp and provide a safe experience. During Registration you will be given the opportunity to indicate that your child has a food allergy. After completing your Registration you will receive an email two weeks prior to Bayside Kids Camp that contains instruction on how to send approved snacks for your child, as well as additional paperwork that needs to be completed for your child.

Will you be able to administer medication to my child during camp?

Thank you for understanding that we will not be able to administer any over the counter or prescription medications during Bayside Kids Camp, except in the case of an Epi Pen or a rescue inhaler because they are lifesaving medications.If your child has an Epi Pen or rescue inhaler place the item in a plastic zip top bag with your child's first and last name and grade written on it, and drop it off at the Resource Center on the first day of camp.

There will be no in person services Christmas Day.

When will my child receive their camp shirt?

You will be able to pick up your child's t-shirt when they arrive on campus on the first day of camp. We encourage kids to wear their shirts each day of camp.

Can my child change locations after they have already registered?

If there is still space available at the other location we would be happy to cancel your child's current registration and fully reimburse you. You are then free to register your child at the alternate location. Please be advised that you will need to register them at the current camp price.

Will transportation be provided from any of the campuses to either camp location?

Transportation will not be provided to Camp from any of our locations.

What does my child need to bring/ wear to camp?

Please have your child wear comfortable play clothes and tennis shoes to camp. It is strongly recommended that all campers wear appropriate shorts or pants to camp. If girls choose to wear a dress, we ask that they wear a pair of shorts underneath for modesty. Flip flops, sandals, and dress shoes make it difficult for campers to run and play and therefore are not the best or safest option. Water shoes or crocs are recommended on your child's Water Day.

Can my child bring electronics?

In Bayside Kids safety is our #1 priority. In an effort to keep all of our children safe we have a pocket rule for all cell phones and devices that connect to the Internet. If your child intends to bring an electronic device to Summer Camp please let them know that it must remain in their pocket, or their Camp bag, at all times. If a child does not abide by the “pocket rule” their electronic device will be taken for the remainder of the day and stored at the Resource Center. If your child needs to contact you at any point during the day they are free to come to the Resource Center and use their electronic device. If you need to get in touch with your child or the Bayside Kids staff at any point during camp please call 941-755-8600 and ask to be connected to the Summer Camp.

Why do I have to show a photo ID if I do not have my parent pick up sticker?

We want to ensure your child is picked up by a person that you, as his/her parent or guardian, has authorized to pick them up. Without a parent pick up sticker, we will request a photo ID to be sure the person picking your child up is authorized to do so. We will do this by cross referencing the person’s name and information on their photo ID with the authorized pick up information given during registration.

What is your cancellation policy?

100% of your registration is refundable through June 2nd. From June 3rd - 9th, 50% per camper is refundable. No refunds can be administered after the first day of Bayside Kids Camp. Refunds must be requested by emailing

I have additional questions.
