Hello Kroc Camp Families,  

We hope this message finds you and your camper(s) well! We at Kroc Camps are excited to see you at camp soon and are praying for your well-being and safety.   

This year has been challenging for everyone. We hope our camps will provide a sense of normalcy while providing your children with fun and enriching activities. Even though many of our camp traditions and programs have looked a little different this year, camps have been running extremely smooth so far!  

  • In line with COVID-19 Oregon Health Authority (OHA) Guidance for School Aged Summertime Day Camps we are modifying our camp program to best ensure safety by:
  • Educating our Campers and Counselors on practicing social distancing and good hygiene.
  • Drastically increasing our sanitation procedures.
  • Hosting camp groups of 10 and keeping our camps stable by not co-mingling camp groups.
  • Designating restrooms specific to each stable group of 10 campers.
  • Hosting Private camp times for swimming.
  • As much as possible each cohort will have their own equipment and any shared equipment or spaces will be cleaned before and after each stable group.
  • Minimizing contact during drop-off and pick up, by allowing and encouraging parents to stay in their car.
  • All while continuing to provide a FUN, engaging and safe experience for your camper(s)!
  • NOW INCLUDING FOLLOWING STATE MANDATE FOR KIDS 5 AND UP WEARING A MASK UNLESS A MEDICAL EXCEPTION CAN BE MADE 
  1. Camper Drop Off and Pick Up Changes:  To minimize contact during drop-off and pick-up parents will be allowed to stay in their cars and we will have a drive-thru drop off/pick up in the front driveway of the Kroc Center. There will be plenty of signs marking where to go. You will be greeted by camp staff who will conduct a short health check (including no-touch temperature check), confirm registration information and escort your child to their camp group. Campers will wash hands upon entering their “Cabin” for the week.   
  2. Camp Hours: Camp hours are the same as previous years 8am-5pm. We do encourage parents to stagger their drop off and pick up times to help with the flow and maintain proper distancing. Drop-off is between 8am9am and Pick-Up is 4pm-5pm (if need to pick up earlier please notify staff at drop-off). Extended care can be purchased for an additional fee which allows drop off as early as 7:30am and pick up as late as 6pm.   
  3. Snack and Lunch: A lunch and 2 snacks are provided for each camper. As, we will not be utilizing water fountains, we highly encourage you to send your camper will a labeled water bottle. Campers are allowed to bring their own lunch and snacks (no sharing of food between campers.)  
  4. Health Policies: We will depend on you for an honest assessment of your child’s health. Campers with a new cough or fever of 100.4 or higher will not be allowed to attend camp. If your child becomes ill or presents any of these conditions over the course of the camp day, they will be separated from the group of campers, monitored and you will be called to come and pick them up immediately. For our complete health guidelines please see our health policies or communicable disease management plan.   
  5. All Staff and Campers 5 years old and older must wear a mask while at camp unless claiming a medical reason for not wearing a mask. Times when campers will not have to wear a mask will be; during swimming, splash zone, gym and outdoor games or any other time when wearing a mask is deemed dangerous or unsafe. 
  6. Pool Access as noted by the CDC, there is no evidence that COVID-19 can spread to people through the water used in pools; that proper operation and disinfection of pools should kill the virus that causes COVID-19. We plan to provide swim time as long as Marion county is in at least Phase 2 and pools are allowed to be open.  We are working closing with our Aquatics Coordinator and will have private pool access for our campers and still maintain social distancing protocols.  If pools are not open we will have fun alternative activities planned during that time. Campers should still pack a swimsuit and towel every day.  
  7. Field Trips:  At this time, we cannot take any field trips off site.

We are truly looking forward to seeing you and your camper this summer!

What We Believe

 

MEET YOUR CAMPS SUPERVISOR

Ben Northrop

About Ben:

This will be my 6th summer. I spent 3 summers as a counselor and this will be my 3rd year as the Supervisor. My favorite part of the job is being seeing the smiles our staff have put on kids faces when they have had a great day at camp!

 

What to Bring to Camp:

Water Bottle

Lunch/Snack

Athletic Shoes

Sunscreen

Backpack

  • Water Bottle: We recommend that you bring a water bottle. It’s going to be a long day and a water bottle is the easiest way to help your child stay hydrated.  
  • Lunch/Snacks: We provide two snacks and there is a weekly lunch plan you can purchase. However, if your child needs a little more or they would rather food from home, sending them with their own lunch or extra snacks is allowed.  
  • Swim Suit/Towel: Please bring a swimsuit and towel every day. We typically go swimming on Monday, Wednesday and Friday, but also have Splash Zone (water activities) on Tuesday’s, and especially during the summer months you just never know when a camp activity may involve getting a little wet. 
  • Athletic Shoes: Proper athletic closed toed shoes. Campers have the opportunity to utilize our rock wall during camp proper shoes and pants that go at least to right above the knee. 
  • Sunscreen: We cannot provide sunscreen and cannot assist in sunscreen application other than the spray kind, so make sure if you know your child needs sunscreen that either it is applied before camp or it comes in a form they are able to apply themselves or the spray kind a counselor can assist them with. 
  • Backpack: A backpack is to carry the contents they need for the day or for bringing home projects they make at camp.

A 24-hour notification is needed for late drop-off or early pick-up if the event has been pre-planned. A phone call to the Camp Supervisor in the case of unexpected absence or schedule changes is required.

Consistent late pick-up may be penalized with a late fee.

CANCELLATIONS/REFUND POLICY

Monetary refunds will not be issued unless a Day Camp session is canceled by the Kroc Center or for extenuating circumstances such as death in the family, illness, etc. All refunds require an approval through the Camp Programs Coordinator. If the program is canceled by the Kroc Center, you will be given a full credit or cash refund.

Withdrawal from a program or class 7 or more days prior to the start of camp session: results in a refund, minus a $45 nonrefundable deposits or registration fees. Withdrawal from a program or class 6 days or less prior to the start of camp session: results in a credit on a Kroc Center Gift Card, minus the $45 non-refundable deposits or registration fees.

A refund request form must be completed within one week of cancellation. Refunds placed on gift cards are applicable towards any Kroc Center Program or merchandise and are not redeemable for cash. Please see the current Program Guide for the full cancellation policy.

No credits or pro-rated credits will be issued for partial attendance at a camp or missed days of camp due to illness, behavior issues, or any other reason.

CAMP WAIVER/MEDICAL FORMS

Each camper must have a parent or guardian sign a camp waiver and supply correct and updated medical information in regards to their child(ren). Waiver(s) must be completed and signed prior to camp participation, preferably at time of registration.

MEDICAL PROTOCOL

As a parent, if your child has any special medical needs, please include these with the desired response on the Registration Form. These will include, but are not limited to, any medical or behavioral diagnoses that may affect your child’s experience at camp. Updates can be made throughout the summer based on a case-b-case basis and will be reported directly to the Camp Supervisor. By providing this information, you are providing our staff with the knowledge and ability to provided the best care possible for your child. Please note that there will be no nurse/doctor on-call at The Kroc Center.

POOL AREA/SWIMMING EVALUATIONS

Swim tests to determine ability (for safety purposes) will be conducted on the first day of camp by our Camp Staff. Once ability is established, children will be allowed to participate in designated areas. Appropriate swim attire is required. Counselors will assist children at all times while in the pool and both areas will be fully staffed with trained, certified lifeguards. Children must be at least 48” tall in order to have safe access to the large water slide.

DAY CAMP VISITORS

Any day camp visitors for all children and staff will be required to sign-in, and will be given a name tag to identify the individual as a visitor of Camp Kroc.

LOST & FOUND

Lost & Found items will be kept for a period of two weeks after a session, then donated to the local Salvation Army Thrift Store. Lost & found items is located in the Camp Supervisors Office.

MEDICATION DISTRIBUTION

In the case of medication distribution, parents must complete our Medication Information Form. This releases The Kroc Center from liability for medication that is required for distribution for the health of a child. Medication must be dropped off to the AM Lead in the original prescription container with your child’s name printed on the label and placed in a plastic bag. Medication will be stored in the Camp Supervisor’s office and administered at the time(s) and in the amount designated by the Medication Information Form. Parents must sign out medication at the end of each day and check back in the following day. Any medication not brought in the appropriate container may preclude camp participation for your child on that day.

ILLNESS AND INJURIES

Kroc Day Camp is not designed or equipped to handle ill children. If your camper becomes ill while at Kroc Day Camp, our staff will make your child comfortable in an area away from the other campers. Our staff will then contact you (the parent) or one of the individuals you have authorized to pick up your child. If immediate medical attention is needed or if the severity of an injury cannot be correctly established, parents will be notified immediately. The Emergency Medical System (911) will be activated at the discretion of the Camp Supervisor and/or trained Kroc Staff. If staff are unable to reach parents whose child is in need of immediate medical attention, he/she will be transported to the nearest hospital via ambulance and staff will continue to attempt to contact parents. Parents/guardians will be responsible for all emergency medical care expenses.

CELLPHONE/SMART DEVICE POLICY

Cell Phone Policy Social development is one of our top values; use of cell phones creates a distraction and a "disconnect" between campers and the activities being led, as well as their overall involvement with peers and the camp program. Please do not send your camper with a cell phone to camp. Cell phone use is prohibits unless directed by the camps supervisor or other authorized staff. Contact with parents can be made through the office phone lines. Failure to abide by this policy could result in the cell phone or other smart device being taken to the camps office to be picked up by a parent/guardian. If for some reason you would like your camper to have their cell phone with them, it must be put away in their backpack, or they could place it in a lock box in the Camp Office during the day for safe keeping. Please communicate with the camps supervisor if there is a need for your child to have a cellphone at camp.

  • Pick Up is between 4:00pm and 5:00pm 
  • The pickup process is similar to the drop off. Follow the signs from the main entrance to the camp pick up area.  
  • Please have your ID ready as we cannot release your child unless we have confirmation that you are authorized for pickup.  
  • You will be charged a late pickup fee if you are more than 10 minutes past 5pm. The fee is $10 for every additional 10 minutes that you are late.  
  • If you know you are going to be late please call ahead. *For extenuating circumstances late fees may be waived.  

Is extended care available? 

Yes! 

  • For an additional fee you can purchase extended care for the whole week or for a single day.

For more details about food service at camp or to receive a sample menu, contact the camp supervisor @ 503-798-4791. 

Do my campers get to use the pool?

  • Yes, each camp swims in the afternoons on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday 
  • All swim times are after 1:00pm, but specific times vary depending on the specific camp 
  • Please make sure to send your camper with a swimsuit everyday because on Tuesday’s we have an out side Splash zone time where campers will get wet, and you just never know when a camp in the summer time might get a little wet doing a water activity. 

Do my campers get to use the game room and rock wall? 

  • Yes, we try to get campers two opportunities during the week to use both the game room and the rock wall, although certain camps may spend more time on their camp activities and may only get one time at each place during the week. 

Pricing, what is the Cost? And Why are different camps different prices? 

  • The cost for of camps varies between $200-280 for a week of camp 
  • Camps costs vary depending on the camp we are running because some camps costs more for us to run, and we believe in the fair pricing of a camp. 
  • Some camps also cost more because they include extra things like a field trip or a performance camp 
  • With the cost of camp your camper gets one free t-shirt for the whole summer, and two free snacks each day.

  • Field trips are not sold individually. 

What should I know if my camper is in a performance camp? 

  • At Kroc Camps we are really proud to be able to offer camps that allow kids to harness and display their talents onstage for their families and friends.
  • Some of the performance camps we have offered in the past are; Hip Hop Camp, Cheer, Musical Theater, Cupcake Wars, and Restaurant week. 
  • For our performance camps be on the lookout for a note home to parents with more details about what campers may need for the week, and the time and place of the performance.
  • Most performances will happen on Friday in the Chapel, although some may happen in our event spaces. 
  • On performance weeks please be ready for anything, because sometimes we have to adjust to other things going on in our building. One year we had to move the Musical Theater performance to a Thursday to accommodate another group using the Chapel. 

What do Fall/Winter/Spring Camps look like? 

  • Fall, Winter and Spring camps look a little different than Summer Camp. Swimming happens every day and there is no Splash Zone on Tuesday’s. 
  • You can purchase Fall, Winter and Spring camp days individually, which is different than purchasing a week of summer camp. 
  • Game room and rock wall use are also included during camp days.
