Camp Pondo WINTER CAMP 2019 Details!
We will be headed back to Camp Pondo for winter camp and we couldn’t be happier with this place! This is an amazing trip and I am so glad that you are thinking about attending with us. We are going to Camp Pondo January 18-20, 2018.
We will be leaving before school gets out that Friday and will be coming back Sunday afternoon of Martin Luther King Weekend! This will be a weekend of fun that you won’t want to miss! Sign Up quickly as spots do fill up quickly! We are asking this year that parents give checks for signing up and fill out all stuff online! Checks help us in avoiding fees from online systems, but we understand if you are unable to do this! Hope to see your student there!
Pay attention because all the following items must have before you can go to Winter Camp with us.
First, you will need to make sure that you have paid a deposit to get on the list. Click on "Register" to do that.
Second, you will need to make sure that you fill out all the forms above.
Third, you must be able to get out of school early on Friday January 18th. We meet at SunHouse at 12:15 so we can leave early and miss the traffic in Los Angeles.
If you have questions or need more information, please visit our contact page.
Parents: We will be meeting at SunHouse on Friday January 18th between 12:00 - 12:30pm. We plan on leaving SunHouse at 1:00pm. -Yes, this means your student will need to get out of school early. This is necessary to avoid traffic and get to camp on time.
We will be stopping at In-N-Out Burger on the way up for a late lunch so be sure to give some extra money. You are also welcome to pack some snacks and waters for the bus trip or camp as well.
We will be returning to SunHouse on Sunday January 20th between 1 - 2pm. Please call the “SunHouse Return Hotline” before coming to pick up your student for updated return times. SunHouse Hotline #: 858-729-5543
Students are allowed to bring their phones, tablets, and other electronics on the bus, but once at camp we will be holding all devices securely for them. We have had too many students lose, damage, or use electronics in a negative way. If you need to contact your son/daughter, please talk with a SunHouse staff member before we leave so we can coordinate times for students to use their phones to contact you.
We do encourage that students simply leave all electronics at home and would appreciate any help you can give to us in this matter.
Questions? Call Alyssa at SunHouse. 858-729-5502
