Summer Camp Frequently Asked Questions
FAQ's related to our traditional in-person Camp Program
How will I know if my students completed the Online Information Form?
Provide your students with your email address and if they enter it correctly on their form, you will receive an email copy of their submission.
After May 27, we will notify advisors by email of missing student information. Emails will come from firstname.lastname@example.org. Please make sure that address is in your address book to avoid emails being sent to spam/junk mail. Additionally, after submitting the Online Information Form, an email from Google Forms "email@example.com" will be sent to the student email address provided on the form.
What do I do if a student is no longer going to camp and I want to replace that student?
Send an email to Jeff Culver at firstname.lastname@example.org with the name of the student to remove and the name of the new student attending. Then have the new student complete the Online Information Form. After the end of May, there is no guarantee that t-shirt size can be changed. Once your camp date is within two weeks of starting, a replacement student must be of the same gender, for rooming purposes. (For example, if your camp begins on July 14, any replacements made beginning on July 1 must be of the same gender.)
What if I have students back out of going to camp, but have nobody to replace them?
Contact CADA Central at 831-464-4891 as soon as possible. In the event of a waiting list situation, this may open up an opportunity to allow a school/students to attend camp who otherwise would not able to due to a sell-out situation. Also email Jeff Culver at email@example.com to let him know which student to remove from the main list.
What if I have a student back out of going to camp and I wish to sell that spot to another school already going to camp?
If this situation arises, please let Jeff Culver know, so we can adjust the numbers and information on our end prior to camp starting. You can then handle the exchange of funds school to school. No need to process through CADA Central.
What time does camp start? End?
Be sure to read through the Code of Conduct & Camp Information document, available at cada1.org/camphub for answers to these questions and LOTS more. But check-in starts at 11:00 a.m. on the first day of camp. At this time, you and your students will rotate through the check-in tables, obtain your room keys, drop off luggage, grab lunch, and enjoy check-in activities. The structured program begins at 1:30 p.m. On the last day of camp, structured activities will end at 11:15 a.m. (SCU & UCSB High School) and 12:30 p.m. (UCSB Middle School). Please schedule transportation to leave after 11:15 (SCU & UCSB High School) or 12:30 p.m (UCSB Middle School). *Note: A revised AmTrak schedule has the train departing Goleta at 12:35 p.m. We will accommodate any UCSB Middle School group taking that train.
The Camp Document says you're not collecting key deposits, but there's a form to collect key deposits. Which is it?
CADA/CASL will NOT collect key deposits. The form is available for you if YOU choose to collect the deposits from your students. If you or one of your students loses a key and you did NOT collect key deposits, we will give you an invoice on site for your school to pay the $60 (UCSB) or $15 (SCU). If you or one of your students loses a key and you DID collect deposits, you can give us the deposit on the last day of camp to cover the fee.
What is the process for the Medical Forms?
To streamline the medical form process and eliminate the need to send items in the mail, you need to have your students complete the medical form and make a second copy. At Camp check-in, you will provide our Camp office staff with one copy of the medical form per student. We will keep that on file in the Camp office. The second copy will be folded and inserted inside the student's name badge holder. We also recommend adults complete the medical form, so we have information on file in case of an emergency.
When can I see the final Camp Schedule?
The final camp schedule will be available shortly before camp begins on the CADA/CASL Events mobile app. Attendees will also receive a hard copy of the schedule during check-in. In the meantime, sample schedules for both middle school and high school are available at cada1.org/camphub.
