All sports equipment will be supplied and cleaned throughout the day.
Just Pack a LARGE water bottle and your players will be all set.
Yes, your child will be grouped with children their same age for safety reasons and also for the best learning experience. Each age group has it’s own specially-designed curriculum based age.
Yes, your children will be running, jumping, playing and laughing all day and they WILL be tired at pick-up time! At B.E.S.T. your child is not just a number in hoards of children. Each is a special individual, we learn their names, their likes and dislikes, what they excel at and teach them accordingly. If, for any reason, you have any specific questions, we are always here to talk to you. We want to make your child’s camp experience the BEST one ever!

General Policies

Sick Children

In order for us to keep our children healthy we insist that you keep sick children home! Due to recent events, temperatures could be taken upon arrival. 

** Should your child be SICK please do not come to camp. (see cancellation policy)

Again, we ask that you please do not send sick children to camp to save losing money. Sick children will be sent home and credit not provided as it is unwise to send sick children to be around others.

Lastly, as a courtesy to our coaches and the other children in our program, we strongly request that if any of your child are sick they must be BOTH fever, and symptom-free for a MINIMUM of 24 hours before attending/returning to any B.E.S.T. Program.

Let’s keep our kids & coaches healthy – that keeps us all happy!

Camp Changes or Cancellations

Please understand we do NOT 100% Refund for ANY reason unless:

  1. Please note the NO REFUND Policy Remains in full affect for ANY REASON a customer cancels. If B.E.S.T. cancels the Camp and is not providing the service, it is a 100% refund to credit card.
  2. If a customer cancels within (48 hours or same day or after) there is no refund or credit that can be provided.
  3. All Cancellations 2 Days (48 hours) in advance will be credited 50% per camp/day or week /per kid*.  Please note this cancellation will be subject to a recalculation to account for any adjustments to a package deal which resulted in a discounted per day price. This recalculation will result in a new total.  i.e. calling to change a 5-day week enrollment into a 4-day enrollment. This will now be calculated as 4 individual day enrollment with the cancelled day balance being credited at 50%.
  4. Cancelling within 48 hours or during the same day of the camp or calling any time after a missed day is not refundable or creditable for any reason. This spot has been sold and is not marketable.
  5. Finally: We ask that you please do not send sick children to camp to save losing money. Sick children will be sent home and credit not provided as it is unwise to send sick children to be around others.


You can feel confident dropping your children off in a FUN, active, clean, and SAFE environment! Please read all online policies prior to registering. Registering gives B.E.S.T. your consent that you have read, understand and accept all of our policies. If you have any questions, we are always here to help!

Bathroom Independence Required

YOUR CHILD MUST BE BATHROOM INDEPENDENT to attend camp. What does this mean? This means that they must be able to go to the bathroom (get on and off the toilet) on their own, flush and wash hands by themselves. We will not enter into the bathroom facilities with your child, and should they have an accident they will have to change themselves. Should they not be able to change themselves, their parent will be called to come and assist.

Pull-ups are not permitted. Should a change of clothes be required we will supply a new t-shirt, new sweats/shorts and new socks for $25. This is non-negotiable should you not pack a change of clothes. *Please know that for our littlest campers, we remind them every hour to use the bathroom.

Drop Off / Pick Up

Drop Off and Pick Up Procedures

We now offer a safe and convenient car-to-door “Camper Drop-off/Pick-up Line”! Simply pull up to our BEST Tent and stay in your nice, cool car. Our Coach checks your child in from your car while a dedicated Coach comes to get your child and walks them just a few steps into our Camp door! At pick-up time we bring your child directly to you after checking ID!

More information to come in your “Welcome e-mail”, upon registration.
