Camp Tiger - A Day at Camp

DROP-OFF (8:30 a.m.) and PICK-UP (3 p.m.)
RIT's campus is undergoing multiple construction projects that limit the number of access points for pick-up/drop-off. The specific drop-off/pick-up location and directions will be provided prior to the start of camp. Adults should accompany their camper into the building on the first day of each week of camp. Adults may opt for self sign-out for campers who are at least 14 years old, otherwise adult sign-out is required. 

CAMP MEET UP (8:30 a.m. to 9 a.m.)
Campers go to our central meeting space to check-in with counselors. Daily welcome, camp announcements and instructions for the day are addressed. Counselors accompany campers as they move about campus, assist in workshops, and facilitate sign-in and sign-out. Every Monday, campers receive two Camp Tiger T-shirts, color-coded by program to wear throughout the week.

PROGRAMS (9 a.m. to 11 a.m. and 1 p.m. to 3 p.m.)
Programs are located in academic buildings and labs on campus. Instruction takes place in two blocks. Instructors are predominantly from the RIT community (faculty, staff, students). Camp Tiger is structured to follow best practices for youth safety. This means there are always two adults present in the classroom with campers and appropriate adult-to-youth ratios are maintained. Camp Tiger's administrative staff is available to assist with workshops, handle camper challenges and manage logistics, as needed.

LUNCH (11 a.m. to 12 p.m., or 12 p.m. to 1 p.m.)
Campers enjoy a buffet-style lunch in an RIT dining hall. The cost of lunch has been included in the registration fee for camp. RIT dining staff carefully plan a menu that is tasty for campers, while meeting various food allergies and eating styles. The menu is nut-free and has vegetarian and gluten-free options.
Note: Campers who bring their own lunch will not have access to refrigeration and must eat nut-free to maintain the safety of other campers.

ELECTIVE ACTIVITIES (11 a.m. to 12 p.m., or 12 p.m. to 1 p.m.)
The goal of elective activities is to provide interactive and memorable experiences that only summer camp can deliver! Campers are able to meet more friends, and chose fun and engaging activities with other campers, and explore RIT. Each day offers a variety of STEAM, outdoor and physical opportunities for youth to choose from.

EXTENDED HOURS (Morning Crew 7:30 a.m. 8:30 a.m.; Evening Crew 3 p.m. to 5:30 p.m.)
Optional extended hours are provided to make Camp Tiger convenient for families. Morning Crew (7:30 a.m. to 8:30 a.m.) and Evening Crew (3 p.m. to 5:30 p.m.) provided a casual environment where campers participate in activities and socialize. Camp Tiger offers several structured activities for campers to choose from during extended hours. Adults may pick up their camper at any time during Evening Crew.
