CAMP POLICIES

WHAT SHOULD MY CHILD BRING TO CAMP EACH DAY?

Each day your child should have a healthy packed lunch and snacks for our AM and PM snack times. They should also have sunblock, a swimsuit and towel and a refillable water bottle. Please be sure to label all belongings with your child's name so that if lost it will be easy to locate in our lost and found. The YMCA will not be responsible for the loss and/or theft of items brought to camp.

Please dress your child in light, durable clothes that can get dirty and closed-toed shoes each day of camp.  Sandals and flip-flops are not allowed at any time, but may be packed for water play days.

HOW DOES CURBSIDE PICK-UP WORK?

Due to covid-19 we are unable to allow parents on site at this time, so all children will be dropped off and picked up using our curbside drop off system. When you arrive at camp please follow the signs to our drop off and health check area. Here you will be asked our health screenings questions, your child’s temperature will be checked and you will sign them in or out using our tablets. Once your child has completed these steps they will be escorted to their group area where they will check in with their counselors and wait for the start of the day. 

WHEN MAY I DROP OFF/PICK UP MY CHILD EACH DAY FROM CAMP:

Regular camp hours are from 9:00a.m. - 4:00p.m.  Extended care is available, at no additional charge, from 7:00a.m. - 9:00a.m. and also from 4:00p.m. - 6:00p.m. every day.  Please try to drop off before the 9am start time, this way your child won't miss any of the activities that we have planned for each day. It is imperative that you sign your child in and out every day with our curbside staff and that you have available a proper photo I.D. for pick up.  This is for your child’s safety.  Additionally, no one under the age of 18 is permitted to sign your child out.  This is a state of California mandate, therefore no exceptions can or will be made.


WHAT IS THE SUNSCREEN POLICY AT THE Y?

Parents should supply a sunscreen product with a minimum SPF 30 for their child’s use.  To ensure full and proper application, campers under six years old will be assisted by the counselors when applying sunscreen.  Counselors will supervise children over six years old with sunscreen application and will remind the campers to reapply it throughout the day.  It is suggested that all sunscreen be applied first thing in the morning, and reapplied throughout the day after swimming, sweating, or when the initial application naturally wears off.  The guidelines on the product should be followed.  If your child refuses to reapply sunscreen when asked, you will be contacted and informed that he/she is not cooperating. We want you to feel free to provide a t-shirt/rash guard and/or hat for your child’s added protection.  

WHAT IS THE ILLNESS POLICY AT THE Y?

In order to prevent the spread of illness, your child cannot attend the YMCA Camp program with any one of the following symptoms or illnesses listed below.
*Please note that if any of these symptoms or illnesses become present while at camp, your child will need to be picked up within an hour. 
•    Fever, cough, sore throat, difficulty breathing and loss of taste or smell (currently or in the last 14 days)

WHAT IF MY CHILD NEEDS TO TAKE MEDICATION WHILE AT CAMP?

•    A signed Authorization to Administer Medication form must be filled out and accompany the medication. This form must be submitted to the camp office at time of registration. 
•    Medication must be brought to camp by the parent in the original prescription container. Do not send the medication with your child. 
•    If it is an over-the-counter medication, a written note from your child’s doctor must be provided.
