Every week of Kroc Camps is a unique opportunity to learn new life skills, and a place to make new friends. For parents, Day Camp does more than just provide peace of mind that your children are well cared for, it also provides assurance that your children continue to develop their talents and abilities throughout the year. Day Camp can provide childhood experiences and friendships, which will benefit children for a lifetime. We consider it a great privilege to have your children entrusted to us and strive to continually expand and improve the care and services we offer. Camps are offered in the Summer, and during Thanksgiving, Winter, and Spring Breaks.

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

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.
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.
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.
