We are open Mondays through Thursdays. Our hours of operation for full day campers are from 8:30 – 3:00. Half day camp hours are from 9:00-1:00. If you need to drop off or pick up your child in the middle of the day, please text us. Please sign your child in and out of camp each day. If anyone other than a parent will be picking up your child, please let us know in writing. If you know you are going to be late in picking up your child, please contact the camp as soon as possible. After five minutes, a late charge of $1.00 per minute will be charged. Thank you for being respectful of our time at the end of the day, and for your promptness!

CANCELATION AND PAYMENT POLICY

You will receive invoices for camp charges with camp totals and due dates. Camp charges are due in advance. All cancellations require a two week’s notice or you will be charged. There are no make-up days or exchanges for missed camp days. Drop-in’s are welcome when space is available but will not be scheduled more than a week in advance.

WHAT TO BRING

Children need to arrive to camp with sunscreen on. Each day, please send a hearty, packed lunch that does not require refrigerating or heating, a water bottle, and a backpack that your child can manage and wear. Please do not over pack your child’s backpack and please do not send toys or excessive items to camp. MASTERS (6-8 yrs)  should come with a bike & helmet, extra sunscreen, and a swim suit and towel. SEEKERS  (ages 4-5) do not need a bike and helmet, or swimsuit or towel unless otherwise instructed. All children are required to wear helmets and sunscreen in our care.

ILLNESS/ALLERGIES

Please do not bring your child to camp if he/she is sick or contagious. Please let us know if your child has any special needs or allergies before the first day of camp. Inhalers, Benadryl, or epi-pens can be carried by your child’s counselor when necessary. Please note that Smart Start Kid’s Camp is not a peanut free environment.

BEHAVIOR ISSUES

We reserve the right to dismiss a child from our program due to excessive behavior issues.   The nature of our program requires moving about the neighborhood and engaging in physical activity, and safety is our top priority

SNACKS

We offer the children a popsicle at the end of each day. If your child is unable to enjoy this treat, please supply us with an alternative snack so he/she will not be without. Please send extra snacks for children who will be staying for the full day as children get hungry in the afternoons.

LOST ITEMS

Please label all items, take all items home each day, and do not send toys or personal items to camp with your child.

SWIM TEAM

We will not be taking children to, or picking children up from swim team, as it is disruptive to our scheduled camp activities. We are open to children joining us after swim team if somebody can bring them to us.
