Wednesday and Friday afternoons (weather permitting) from 12:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m. are pool days. On these days pick up is at the end of the day at 3:00 PM at the pool (Siebert Park Pool at 2414 Cumberland Blvd, Camp Hill, PA 17011 ). Your child has the option to eat at the food court, however, they must bring their own money. Carrie Budman will send out a text blast via Remind  by 10:30 AM to let parents know if we will be canceling pool due to rainy weather/potential storms. On days when the pool is cancelled, make note that we will hold afternoon camp at the Performing Arts Center and campers will not be dismissed at 11:30 AM. Pick up will be at Performing Arts Center rather than the pool.

Parent Volunteers

There are several opportunities for parents to get involved.  On both show days, we sell concessions and tickets. Parents will be asked to sign up to donate some items, or work at the concession stand during intermission, or work at the ticket booth before a show.
