Frequently Asked Questions

Can I Pick Up My Child Early?

No, early pickups are not allowed for explorer camps due to activities occurring off campus.

When does camp begin/end?

Explorer Camp activities begin at 8:00 am each day and end at 5:00 pm. We are unable to allow early pick-ups because we cannot guarantee when campers will return from their daily off-campus activities. 

Where do I drop off/pick up my child?

Daily camp drop-off and pick-up are at Peak Adventures.  We’re located at Sac State, find us here.

What if my child is close to the age range?

Campers must be 12-15 years old by the first day of camp. If your child does not meet that requirement, please check out our Green & Gold or our Overnight Camps for other age ranges.

What does my child need to bring to camp?

Daily item checklists will be sent to registered campers the week prior to camp.

We suggest packing the following items each day:

  • Lunch
  • No jeans
  • Sunglasses
  • Shorts
  • Sweatshirt
  • Tennis shoes
  • Sunscreen
  • Lip balm
  • Towel
  • Day pack
