Camp Iredell is for ages 5-11. Camp Iredell Adventures is for ages 11-3.
Our policy is that children need to be within the appropriate age range at the time they START camp (due to the high demand and limited availability). For the younger children, it is helpful if they have had experience in a group environment (ex: daycare, pre-school, or kindergarten), although this is not required to attend. For older children, as long as they are the appropriate age when they begin attending camp, they may continue to attend for the remainder of the summer (See EXAMPLE in 3rd paragraph).
Age 5: These children would need to be comfortable managing their items during the day (backpack, lunch, shoes, swimsuit, etc), following instructions, and being part of a large group. Must be able to change clothes and use the restroom independently.
Age 11-12: 11 year olds can be in either program. If a child turns 12 prior to their registered start of camp, they would not be eligible for Camp Iredell, but would still be eligible for Camp Iredell Adventures. If a child does not turn 12 until after they have already started attending Camp Iredell, they would still be eligible to attend Camp Iredell for the remaining weeks they are registered (but could also attend Camp Iredell Adventures if desired, or alternate between the two).
NOTE: With our online registration system, if your child ages out during/between the sessions, you may need to contact the office to continue the registration process for sessions past the DOB.

We travel! *The camps only stay at the school sites during the morning drop-off (7am-8:30am for Camp Iredell, 7:30am-8:30am for Camp Iredell Adventures) and the afternoon pick-up (4:30pm-6pm). Between 8:30am and 4:30pm, the camps will travel to various locations for their scheduled activities (parks, pools, movies, bowling, science centers, etc). Select trips may require earlier drop-off or later pick-up than usual (prior notification will be provided).
* Travel can be subject to change (weather, etc). See NOTE below regarding potential Friday travel.
School Sites (Drop-Off & Pick-Up): East Elementary School (Gym) in Statesville, Mt. Mourne School (Gym) in Mooresville. PICK ONE. During the day, camp will visit a variety of locations. This could include: pools, parks, movies, bowling, science centers, nature/animal centers, historical locations, baseball games, etc. Camp usually swims 2 times each week. The featured “field trips” are usually on Wednesdays (wear camp shirt). See “Parent Handbook” for additional details.
NOTE: Due to cost-cutting procedures in place by the Iredell-Statesville school system, it may be the case that Camp Iredell will not be allowed to travel for some of the Fridays during camp (June & July). We have a use-agreement with I-SS regarding facility use and bus use. We may not be allowed to use the buses on Fridays in June & July, which means we will plan activities to be done at the sites on those days. This would not effect any scheduling on Mondays-Thursdays, and may only effect some, but not all, of our Fridays. This would not effect Camp Iredell Adventures, because they travel by van.

If you are a return customer, please do NOT create a new account! Use your previous account (contact our office if you need assistance). If you are a new customer, you will need to create an account. Accounts are free! Each family will need a parent/guardian to create a family/individual account, and then you may add members/children to that family account (minors cannot create accounts).
Specific instructions for creating accounts, adding members, etc is available on the registration site. The link is posted on the Parks & Recreation webpage. You may create accounts prior to the registration opening; however you will not be able to register for camps until the opening date. Once created, accounts may be used to register for a variety of programs offered through our office.If you do not have internet access, you may contact the Recreation Office (phone or in person) and our staff will be able to work with you to create your account and register your child through our office computers.
You do not have to pay in full when you register, although you may, and there are no additional fees when you pay in full for a session.
There is a payment plan option, and with that you must at least pay $30 of your amount due during your initial registration (or any time you come back to add sessions). For payment plans, a surcharge of $5 per session is added to the weekly total. The $30 payment is non-refundable, non-transferrable, and is used as a deposit to hold your selected sessions. Remaining payments for weekly fee amounts are due the Monday prior to each session.
If you pay in full initially, and cancel at a later date, you will only receive a partial refund, the session fee minus the $30 deposit (if cancelled prior to the deadline).
Because registrations are NOT 100% irefundable and are not transferrable, please be sure you are accurate and confident with your selections.
