Sabrina Jernigan

About Sabrina:

I am SUPER excited to be joining The Kroc Center this year and being a part of Kroc Camps!We have new camps this Summer, field trips planned, lots of water play, rock wall, and so much more. I look forward to seeing you this Summer at Camps.

 

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 and lunch daily. 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.

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.

  • All swim times are after 1:00pm, but specific times vary depending on the specific camp

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.

  • 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.
