The Sundeck will be open during free time for campers to purchase souvenirs and snacks. The Sundeck sells a variety of items such as keychains, sweatshirts, flashlights, a large selection of snacks and drinks, and much more. For all of our on-site camps except Primary Camps, we also sell paintball tickets at the Sundeck.
Each camper will have a Sundeck debit account (while we do allow campers to use cash at the Sundeck, Ghormley assumes NO liability for lost or stolen money!). We suggest adding $2-3 per day for snacks and drinks.
Each camp session has a candy and drink limit:
Primary Camps: 1 candy/1 drink limit per day
Junior Camps: 2 candy/2 drink limit per day
Mid-High Camps: 3 candy/3 drink limit per day
Clothing and souvenirs can range from $.50 to $40.00. It is important that you communicate to your camper that he/she has money in the Sundeck and can get snacks when it is open, as well as guidelines on what souvenirs you would like him/her to purchase (i.e. “You have money for a t-shirt and snacks.”) Also, if your camper is planning on playing paintball, they will need to purchase a $7.00 paintball ticket from the Sundeck. This ticket gives them approximately 125 paintballs at the paintball course.
The Sundeck will be open during check-in, so parents will have the opportunity to walk through the store with their campers. Sundeck money can be added at check-in via credit/debit card only, but please note that to make your check-in process faster, you may add Sundeck money through your online account at any time. You will also have the opportunity to monitor how much your child is spending while they are at camp, if you have an online account, and add more money as needed.
On the last day of camp, parents will have the opportunity to receive a cash refund of their campers’ store money.
NEW POLICY: Parents may receive a cash refund at check-out – for amounts less than $25 – transfer the remaining money to a different camp session, apply it to another camper’s account, or donate it to the scholarship fund. If $25 or more is left on the account, this money can be accessed at the Sundeck through checkout, or it can be refunded to the card on file or by check. Cash will not be given out if $25 or more is left on the camper account at the start of check-out.
Any remaining Sundeck account money under $5 that has not been collected at check-out will automatically be donated to the scholarship fund.
