FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

How do I join Monday’s Camp Zoom?
Make sure to register via the link provided to you via email. Once you register, you will receive the Zoom link. If you register ahead of time the link to join the meeting will be emailed to you. If you register right before the meeting, the link will pop up on your screen.

You will be sent a new Zoom link each day for Camp. Please start logging in at least 10 minutes early in case you have any trouble. 

I don’t have a strong enough internet connection at home or a device:
Please let us know ASAP if you do not have a strong enough internet or a device with a camera, as these are requirements to be able to successfully participate in camp.

What if I get disconnected or can’t login?
We will be actively troubleshooting throughout the camp program. Text 619-325-9401 if you have any technical difficulties and we will try to help you get back into the program.

What is the best location to Zoom for camp?
Help your camper choose a location for their zoom that is quiet and gives them room to move and do the camp activities. Think about what will be visible behind your camper and if you are comfortable with other campers seeing it. Headphones can help minimize background noise.

What if I have multiple campers participating?
If you have multiple campers in the same house – the best option is for them to be in different rooms out of earshot, on two different devices.
