Do you have questions about Summer Camp? We have answers. We are here to help you find the answers to some of the most frequently asked questions.
Q. Do you have to sign up for the whole summer?
A. No, you can sign up for as many weeks you want. There is no minimum amount of weeks.
Q. What happens if my child does not want to go on the field trip?
A. All campers and counselors go on the trips. If your child chooses not to go on a trip, you would have to make other arrangements for the day. Children are put in groups for field trips with 2 staff members and wear a camp shirt to ensure the safety of your child.
Q. My child doesn’t swim, I’m not sure I want them to go to the pool.
A. The pools have a shallow end. Your child will not be allowed to go out of the shallow end without taking a swim test. Our staff is by the shallow end to ensure they stay in their designated area. We have staff in the pool and standing on the deck to ensure the safety of the children.
Q. Are the staff trained and have experience that are watching our children all day?
A. Most of the camp staff work in our Before and After School Program. They all participate in 6 hours Child Care training each year. We do hire some college students but we make sure they have experience and get the required training as well.
Q. Are the children put into groups with their age or are they all one big group?
A. The children are put into groups by the grade they are in. There are two staff responsible for each group. There are times they are not in groups but for certain activities groups are safer for the children.
