Latchkey is unstructured, camp staff supervised, OPTIONAL before and after camp care. It is a weekly flat fee per camp you register for. You will need to purchase Latchkey for each camper attending Latchkey. There is a 15 minute grace period for camp without needing to purchase Latchkey so you have 15 minutes before camp and 15 minutes after camp to drop off and pick up your children.

When registering your campers for camp, there is a question that will ask you if you would like to use Latchkey for that specific week. You will want to hit yes if you will use any of the Latchkey hours. You will want to hit no if you will be dropping your camper off at 9am and picking your camper up at 4pm (Camp Blue Jay would be 10am drop off and 3pm pick up). If you originally sign your camper up and hit the no option, but later want to use our Latchkey service, there is a Latchkey course you can go to in order to sign your camper up. Camp Staff do not have the ability to take payment for Latchkey onsite so you will need to register for Latchkey before camp or online with a credit card while you are onsite. If you register onsite with a credit card, you must show our Camp Staff your receipt for the week in order for your camper to use Latchkey.

Latchkey Hours:   Specialty Camp: 7:30am-9am   4pm-5:30pm   Location: Same location as your camp
