IMPORTANT CAMP INFORMATION Frequently Asked Questions Will I be billed for the remaining balance of camp automatically? You will receive a balance due reminder via email. No bills will be mailed so please ensure that your email address is up-to-date. Failure to receive a reminder is not a valid reason for missing payment deadlines. Campers who do not register at least three weeks prior to the start of camp will not receive a balance due reminder and are encouraged to pay for the camp in full at the time of registration. When is the balance due for a camp? The remaining balance for each camp is due the Monday prior to the first day of camp. Failure to pay balances will result in the deposit being forfeited and the camper’s registration being deleted. Where can I turn in my Medical Release/Liability form? All Medical Release/Liability Waiver forms may be dropped off at the Registration desk during regular business hours, mailed to the Magdalena Ecke Family YMCA, emailed to eckeinfo@ymca.org or faxed to 760.944.9329.

SUMMER 2017 SUMMER CAMP GUIDE

WWW.YMCA.ORG/ECKE

Pick-up at Rhoades & Gymnastics 3:00 pm-3:30 pm Half Day Camps Please refer to the camp description as they differ for each camp. Pick-up window is 15 minutes after camps ends. Extended Day Camps Drop-off: 7:30 am-8:00 am Pick-up: 3:45 pm-6:00 pm One Day Fun Day Options Drop-off: 7:30 am-8:30 am Pick-up: 3:00 pm-6:00 pm What if I am late picking up my child from camp? Children not picked up at the end of the camp day at any of our sites will be placed in our Late Parent Program. A $15 late fee will be charged for any of the first 15 minutes after the end of camp. An additional $1 per minute fee will be charged after the first 15 minutes. For example, camp pick-up ends at 3:45 pm, and a child is picked up at 4:10 pm. There would be a $25 charge. Late parent pick-ups for Rhoade & Gymnastics will need to be picked up at the YMCA location at 4:45 pm. There will be a $15 charge for transportation to the YMCA, shuttle departs at 3:30 pm. What if my child is a few months too young to attend camp? Camps are organized by grades versus ages. All campers must be entering the grade in the fall as listed for each camp. Regardless of grades, due to risk management guidelines all skate campers must be at least six years old on the first day of camp to attend. Laser Tag campers must be seven years old on the first day of camp. In addition, children attending any camp that travels (denoted by bus icon) must be at least six years of age.


How do I ensure my camper is in the same group as his/her friend?

Where can I view my child’s camp schedule?

How do I provide my camper with permission to walk?

Camp is designed for participants to develop new friendships with their peers and we encourage parents to support this goal. However, if you still need to ensure campers are within the same group, you may provide a written note for the Unit Leader of your camp on the first day. Camp staff will attempt to ensure your campers can be within the same groups, but groupings depend on ability and/or age and therefore these accommodations will not always be possible.

The daily schedule is available electronically through our camp website beginning June 6. Please visit www.ymca.org/ecke. You will be able to see an hour-to-hour schedule of each camp’s activities throughout the summer! Those who do not have internet access may call our registration line and request for a schedule to be mailed to your home. Please note that camp schedules are subject to change.

Participants who walk from the main facility, satellite facilities or bus pickup/drop-off locations must be at least 13 years of age and have a signed Permission to Walk slip turned into the YMCA. This slip will be kept on file through the summer. The slip must be on file or your child will not be released and you will be called to pick him/her up from camp.

Still have more questions? That’s OK! Check out our Parent Handbook on our website at www.ymca.org/ecke or contact the Camp Department.

If your camper is enrolled in a separate Y program during Extended Day (3:45 pm-6:00 pm) fill out the Program Activity Form on a weekly basis to have a Camp Staff escort them to their designated program. You can get the form from your Unit Leader or the Camp Offices. (This only applies for campers registered at the Ecke YMCA site camps or for camp shuttle with programs that start at 5:00 pm). Where do I find Camp’s Lost and Found? The best way to prevent the loss of personal property is to label all of your children’s belongings. Our camp Lost and Found items are held for the week of camp by the camp’s Unit Leader. Once that camp is complete, all lost and found items are turned into the designated spot for each main location. Lost and found items are donated to charity throughout the summer so please check lost and found immediately. The YMCA is not responsible for camper possessions that are lost or stolen. Please do not send valuable items or money to camp with your child. My child says there is a family show. What is that? The YMCA wants to share your child’s camp experience with you. Many of our camps do have an optional family show at the end of the week that invites parents and friends to come see what the campers have been up to all week. The YMCA understands that parents might not be able to attend at the designated time and encourage you to contact the Unit Leader to set up an alternative time to visit.

Y-TRANSIT SHUTTLE SERVICE Y-Transit is a busing program designed for your convenience that transports campers from locations close to your home to our camp program.

Campers are required to register for Y-Transit 24 hours in advance to be able to use this service. Children must be at least six years of age to use our shuttle service.

Leaders in Training (L.I.T.) Within this program, teens learn leadership, group management skills, child development basics, and policies and procedures in relation to working with youth. Interacting with campers and representing the Y requires a certain level of maturity. For this reason, the Fieldwork program is selective. Upon completion of the L.I.T. Training Course, teens will be invited to participate in the fieldwork program. L.I.T.s will be required to follow the Y camp staff dress code: solid, non-denim pants or shorts; unaltered Y L.I.T. t-shirt; tennis shoes. Female L.I.T.s will be required to wear one-piece bathing suits when applicable. Dress code and behavior expectations will be detailed during the training course. The program is designed so campers enroll in at least one session of fieldwork upon completion of the training course. For the safety of our campers and L.I.T.s, returning L.I.T.s must still enroll in an L.I.T. Training Course in order to be eligible for fieldwork. L.I.T.s may also receive a letter demonstrating their 35 hours of community service for each week of fieldwork that they complete. L.I.T. Training Course

Caravan Information

What is a “rally?”

Every year the Magdalena Ecke Family YMCA provides resident camps during the summer months. These weeklong adventures allow campers the opportunity to develop friendships and challenge themselves to try new things while having the time of their lives. Caravans are a great week long experience that your campers will never forget!

In order to be properly prepared for these adventures, there is a mandatory pre-trip rally before each caravan or resident camp. These rallies take place in the Y Multi Use Room at 6:00 pm and typically occur the week before the trip. The meetings last approximately 30-45 minutes and serve as an opportunity to go over expectations, turn in important paperwork and answer parent and participant questions. A detailed trip agenda is also handed out during these meetings. A representative from the camper’s family must attend these meetings.

Our caravan and resident camps are certified by the American Camping Association (ACA).

Caravan Registration Camp registration opens at 8:30 am on Saturday, March 4 for YMCA Members & Monday, March 6 for previous camp participants. General camp registration opens Saturday, March 11 at 8:30 am. We recommend registering early as space is limited. To register, go online to the Y website, stop by the front desk at the Y or call 760.635.3050. Payment can be made in full at the time of registration or a $100 deposit can be made with payment in full due 12 days prior to the caravan. The $100 deposit is non-refundable. What is a resident camp? A resident camp is a “traditional” overnight camp. Campers and staff travel to one location where they stay for the whole week, participating in a variety of activities during the day, enjoying bonfires in the evening and sleeping in cabins at night.

How important are the rallies? Attendance is mandatory! There must be at least one parent/guardian present as well as the participant. This is a great opportunity for you to meet the other participants of the trip and to address any questions or concerns you may have with Y staff. May I share a cabin with my friends? For most of the trips that we offer, rooming situations can be arranged as long as we know well in advance. We’ll do our best, but we cannot always accommodate everyone’s requests. Remember, camp is a great opportunity to make new friends as well as strengthen old bonds. A room request email will be sent out to all participants one week prior to the rally. Who will be leading these caravan and resident camp trips? Y directors, full-time staff, camp leaders and dedicated volunteers make up our leadership team for our caravan and resident camps. Each leader has been trained specifically for caravans and meets all American Camp Association (ACA) standards. Every driver must submit to a background check, drug and alcohol testing, a minimum of 20 hours of behind-the-wheel training, a minimum of 10 hours of classroom instruction plus additional required First Aid and CPR training.
