Basic Rules (please review these rules with your child!)
- Shoes and/or cleats and athletic wear must be warn at all times.
- A player should notify a camp staff member when he/she needs to leave the camp early for any reason.
- All players should pay close attention to any announcements made by any staff members.
Lunch & Food Rules
Players are expected to bring their own lunches and snacks every day. This should include a nutritious meal and drink. We discourage children from eating too much sugar and junk food, so please no candy or soda.
Please do not take your child off grounds without letting us know; however, you are most welcome to stop by and join your child for lunch. We encourage children to recycle glass, aluminum & plastic. Recycling containers are provided near the trash containers.
Lost and Found
All of your child’s belongings should be clearly labeled with his/her name. The NACTM are not responsible for lost items. All items will be placed in a lost and found container located near the check in/out area/ Please check the container periodically for your child’s lost belongings. Unclaimed items will be donated at the end of the camp season.
Do not send your child to camp if he/she is not feeling well or has a fever. We do not have the facilities or staff available to care for them. If a child is well enough to attend camp, he/she will be expected to go outside for lunch/recess. There is no indoor supervision for sick children, provided if your child has a special health need, if necessary, please talk this over with Camp Directors. Our staff will make every effort to provide a recuperating child with extra rest. If a child becomes ill at camp or has a fever, parents (or, if parents are unavailable, friends listed on the emergency form) will be contacted and asked to take the child home ASAP. For insurance and safety reason, no medication will be administered by a staff person unless special arrangements are made in writing with the Camp Director. Please discuss any special health considerations (physical, emotional, social, psychological, learning, behavioral, etc.) for your child with the Camp Director. It is extremely important that we are aware of your child’s needs.
Upon enrolling children, parents are asked to provide detailed information concerning each child’s health, including chronic illness or condition, allergies, susceptibility to disease or injury, and any other medical considerations. Copies of these forms are kept confidential and on site.
In case of illness, accidental injury, or emergency during the camp day, camp staff will contact parents at home or at work immediately. We also ask parents to provide us with the numbers of relatives, friends, or neighbors in the event we are unable to contact them (parents) during camp hours.
In the case of serious medical or health emergencies, camp officials will contact a local hospital for personal advice, or, if needed, ambulance service and/or treatment by a physician. Parents are asked to provide us with information concerning emergency treatment preferences.
Each child must complete the registration form with Medical information on file prior to the first day of camp. We cannot admit children into the camp without this form.
Please do not send your child to camp with a communicable disease. Such diseases spread with alarming speed in a camp setting and we need your help to insure the health of all of our campers. This is especially a concern with head lice or symptoms of head lice: if your child is scratching their scalp more than usual, check for ticks.
If your child or other family members have contracted communicable diseases, you must inform the Camp Director about: what disease your child has/had come in contact with (ie. chicken pox, measles), (b) probable date contracted and where, (c) what the symptoms are, (d) what the treatment is, and (e) any other pertinent information, such as periods of incubation and communicability, name of treating physician, when your child will return to camp, etc. Any child who has been absent from camp due to a communicable disease will be readmitted only with a physician’s and camp administrator’s approval.
Picking up your child/dropping off: (Sign in/out)
Please let the Camp Directors know in writing (leave us a note indicating who the authorized pick up people are) if you have authorized anyone else to pick up your child. Children must be signed out before leaving the grounds. If you have an emergency and cannot pick up your child by 3:00 pm, it is imperative that you call and let us know so that arrangements for your child can be made. Our camp phone is: 833-725-3338.
There is a late fee of $20.00 for late pick ups after 3:30 pm. Make arrangements for extended care to avoid these charges. After 3:31 pm, if your child has not been picked up, the emergency contingency plan will allow your child to be picked up and take to the home of the next authorized person listed on the Emergency Form. We will leave a message on your answering machine, voicemail, or beeper with information about whom and where your child was taken.
