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, 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 be notified of the remaining balance on their camper’s Sundeck account. This money will remain on your camper’s account through the last day of camp (no cash will be refunded at check-out). Leftover camp store money will be refunded by check (or to your card if you paid by card) for amounts greater than $5, or it may be spent at the Sundeck, transferred to a different camp session, applied to another camper’s account, or donated to the scholarship fund.
Checks will not be issued for amounts less than $5. You may choose to spend this money at the camp store, donate it to the camp scholarship fund, transfer it to another camper’s account, or apply it to another 2018 camp session. To ensure you receive your remaining balance for amounts under $5, please add Sundeck money via a credit/debit card. Again, we will not issue checks for remaining balances under $5. Amounts greater than $0.25 may be refunded to a card on file.
