KIDDOS BREAK CAMP
BREAK CAMP SPECIFIC POLICIES
For Kiddos in grades K-5th. (We are not able to have PreK or Middle School students)
The bus cannot wait for late campers.
In the mornings we will not have access to a building. Therefore we head out field trips right away. If campers are late parents may either bring camper to field trip location or camper can join us when we return from field trip in afternoons. No refunds issued for missed field trips.
Stellar behavior is required for the safety of all campers. Any behavior issues will be communicated with parents immediately. We maintain the right to remove any camper without notice if Kiddos feels the behavior is putting safety at risk or inhibiting other campers from full experience.
Kindness: We have a ZERO tolerance for being mean or putting others down. We take special measures to create an environment that is not only bully free but intentionally kind. We do offer warnings and discussions to resolve any conflicts. If it continues we maintain the right to remove any camper without notice if Kiddos feels the behavior is inhibiting other campers from having a positive experience.
No cell phones.
Students must have: Tennis Shoes & Wear layers of clothing as weather is unpredictable… Write names on everything.
Bring a Water bottle with your Kiddos Name on it and a lunch.. All items WILL probably get dirty!
Parents must evaluate their children to determine if ToGo camp is a fit for them. Campers must be able to follow directions and stay with the group. We have 1 to 12 Ratios on field trips. If your camper requires smaller ratios please call us to discuss specific camper questions! We will accommodate whenever possible! If your child has an EpiPen or inhaler we need one on site each day.
ALL field trip forms and waivers will be emailed a week prior and available at Drop off each morning. The hard copy must be returned and signed by first day of camp. Please DO NOT email forms to us.
PARENTAL AGREEMENT POLICY
Activity Participation Policy
All camp activities are designed to be age appropriate, safe and FUN. We are VERY active, play in the mud, sing in the rain, get squirted with a hose in the heat and we love water slides. Campers WILL not be prohibited from Activities for aesthetic reasons (including clothing, shoes, hair etc). It is the parent’s responsibility to let us know if a child is not to participate in an activity due to MEDICAL reasons.
We LOVE and welcome ALL our kiddos! If your child is diagnosed or showing early signs of ADHD and ADD please don’t hesitate to let us know so we can make sure they have the ULTIMATE summer. Due to our 35 minute, structured choice based activity schedule students who may have trouble in other camps or settings often thrive with our amazing team. The more we know the more we can tailor your kiddos summer and make sure your kiddo is successful at camp! Feel free to call in advance to discuss
Appropriate Behavior Policy
Please be advised that any child demonstrating inappropriate behavior will be put on a one-week probation and behavior plan. If during this one-week probationary time, the child demonstrates these types of behaviors, he/she will be dismissed from Kiddos Camps. Any dangerous or harmful behavior will be cause for immediate dismissal at Kiddos discretion.
An enrolled child is eligible to attend five days per week. Attendance of an ill child or children with communicable diseases will not be permitted. This includes, but is not limited to, flu, pink eye, diarrhea, vomiting, and a fever of 99.5 or higher. If your child becomes sick during the day, you will be notified to come pick up your child. Sick children cannot remain in the program and must be picked up promptly.
Baby Sitters: We have really awesome Counselors! Some of them babysit our campers. We do not prohibit this but do require parents to understand if they choose to hire a Kiddos employee, the employee will clock out before signing students out and Kiddos is not responsible for the employees behavior and actions during the time you hire them to babysit.
