Address to send campers mail
All campers love receiving mail, including care packages. But remember to send your mail early enough that it arrives while camp is still in session. There are two options for you to get mail into your camper's hands:
- Email your message to the camp director and it will get printed and delivered. Ensure that you include your camper's first and last name, as well as their cabin number if you know it. Send to firstname.lastname@example.org.
- Mail your letter/package via USPS or overnight carrier to:
Camp Burton/Camp Goodtimes
Attn: insert your camper's first and last name here
9326 S.W. Bayview Drive
Vashon Island, WA 98070
Medical Sign Off Form
All campers who are current or former patients need to have their physician or nurse practitioner complete a Medical Sign-Off Form stating that they are healthy enough to attend camp. Parents should upload this completed form into their child's health profile.
Notarized permission form
Prior to arriving at camp, every camper attending Camp Goodtimes needs to submit a digital, notarized copy of this form which gives us permission to have them in our care for the week. (Hard copy original form no longer required.) We may possibly have a notary on site during camper check-in but we encourage and recommend families to get the document notarized prior to arrival at camp. Without this form, we cannot allow a camper to stay for the camp session.
Med Shed Information
Sending your medically-fragile child to a camp for a week may seem daunting and scary. We have an on-site medical staff of nurses and a doctor who are on call 24 hours a day to provide the assistance your camper may need. *All medical/physical needs should be reviewed with camp director prior to camp.
Camp Check-in procedure
Once the big day arrives, and campers are on site you'll follow a series of steps to ensure your camper is officially checked in. Check-in time starts at 2:00 p.m. and runs through 4:00 p.m. Any arrivals outside of that window will need to be approved by the camp director.
LIT Program Application
Campers age 17 years of age may choose to spend their last year at camp participating in the Leader in Training (LIT) Program; at the camp director's discretion 16 year olds may apply. This program allows participants to take on leadership roles at camp that they can build off of when they return to school/life. This is a competitive program and requires a separate application in addition to the standard Camp Goodtimes camper application.
