FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS Frequently Asked Questions Is camp a good fit for my child? If your little one is at least 5 years old, potty trained and can follow directions within camp ratios, then camp is a wonderful place for your child to gain new experiences and make new friends. If you have questions about the fit of a specific camp, please feel free to contact the YMCA, and we can walk you through your concerns. 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 Welcome Center during regular business hours, mailed to the Palomar Family YMCA or faxed to 760.745.7942.

What are the Camp Hours?

Who are the camp staff?

Regular Camp Hours 9:00 am-4:00 pm

We feel confident that we have the best staff around! They are as diverse as our campers and have undergone at least 24 hours of training in everything from risk management, positive disciplinary techniques to how to teach and much more. All camp staff members have background checks and are first aid and CPR certified. Additionally, references have been checked on each staff member.

Extended Day Camps 7:00 am-9:00 am 4:00 pm-6:00 pm What if I am late picking up my child from camp? Camp runs from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 pm daily. We offer free extended care from 7:00 am to 9:00 am and 4:00 pm to 6:00 pm where children will participate in low impact traditional camp activities supervised by staff who may be different than those they have been with throughout the camp day. A late fee of $1 per minute per child will be assessed for children picked up after 6:00 pm, and must be paid prior to your child’s return to camp. Do I need to sign my child in and out daily? The YMCA requires that all children are to be properly signed in by an adult and turned over to a YMCA staff person. This helps ensure the safety of your child. We do require children to be signed out by an authorized adult (18+), even if they are participating in other YMCA programs immediately following camp. Please note: It is our responsibility to see that your child leaves with the appropriate person each day. We will ask for photo identification daily. Please do not be offended. This is done with the child’s safety in mind. When filling out your paperwork, make certain that the names of the authorized adults are the same as they appear on their photo IDs. If you are going to be late, please call the YMCA immediately.

SUMMER 2017 SUMMER CAMP GUIDE

WWW.YMCA.ORG/PALOMAR

What should my child bring/wear to camp? All campers must bring their own lunch, a morning & afternoon snack and water bottle to camp daily. Please send only non-perishable foods because refrigeration is not available. Campers should also bring a labeled water bottle, sunscreen, swim suit, towel, and a sweatshirt for campers who may get cold. Campers should wear closed toed shoes, as we are very active, and clothes in which they are ready to play hard and get dirty. What if my camper needs to take medication during camp? In order for your camper’s Unit Leader to administer medication during the day, your doctor-prescribed medication must be checked in at our camp information center. No over the counter medication will be administered. You will need to complete the YMCA Medication Release form each Monday in order for our staff to administer medication.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS What will my camper be doing everyday at camp?

How will my camper be transported to and from field trips?

What if my camper needs special assistance?

For each week of camp, there will be a schedule available online at our website, ymca.org/palomar. The schedules will give you an inside look at where your camper is going and what activities they will be doing throughout the day. Schedules will be posted 1-3 weeks prior to the start of camp and are subject to change. For more information or updates, please visit or call the Welcome Center at 760.745.7490.

The YMCA transports our campers on school buses routinely inspected by the California Highway Patrol. Due to the nature of the routes and multiple stops we’re making daily, our buses fall under the rules for transport vehicles that require that children must be 6 years old to ride on the bus under California Vehicle Code. A set of our bus rules are available for your review in our Parent Handbook.

We are here to inspire kids to work together, play together, and create friendships that can last a lifetime. At the Palomar Family YMCA, we are passionate about youth development for all. Because your child’s safety is our number one priority, accommodations for children with special needs are made based on the availability of trained staff, camps available, and your child’s needs and our available resources.

Our bus drivers are CPR and First Aid certified and have completed a background check and drug/ alcohol test. Though we try to keep a consistent schedule and accomplish all of our planned activities, departure and arrival times, as well as field trips, are subject to change without notice.

Please complete and submit an Inclusion Intake Form to our camp department prior to registration. Forms are available on our website and at our Welcome Center. Due to high demand, please allow a minimum of two weeks for evaluation of registration materials.

A $25 late fee will be applied to all registrations starting the Tuesday before the camp begins.

LEGEND FOR CAMP LISTINGS Each camp description within the guide contains the following layout: The bus icon represents a camp that will be traveling.

TEEN CAMPS

Leaders in Training (L.I.T.) & Counselors in Training (C.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 fi eldwork 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 for campers to enroll in at least one session of fi eldwork 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. or C.I.T. Training Course in order to be eligible for fi eldwork. L.I.T.s may also receive a letter demonstrating their 35 hours of community service for each week of fi eldwork that they complete.
