WELCOME FAMILIES & CAMPERS:

FRIENDSHIP, ACCOMPLISHMENT, BELONGING Welcome to 2017 YMCA Summer Camp! It’s hard to believe that another summer is upon us once again. Our staff has been very busy planning and organizing what will be one of your child’s best summers yet! There are a lot of new and exciting features to our camps this year along with many of our favorite traditions and experiences from summers in the past! New this year, our Adventure camp is open to children entering Kindergarten who will be turning 5 by the end of the summer. Our Adventure group will be all about transition into our summer camp environment. Our staff for that camp will be based directly with that group for the entirety of the summer. This will help the campers build a sense of safety and security while venturing into new activities and experiences. The daily activities and plans are directed towards these age groups and will be adjusted based on their confidence and learning levels. Also new this summer, we are going to put more focus on camper chosen mastery activities. There will be three different mastery activities offered weekly that are related to art and culture, S.T.E.M. and various sports. Our campers will be able to choose which activity they want to be a part of each week. The different clubs will take place in the mornings of camp and campers will return to their traditional camps for the afternoon. Adventure campers will be able to experience all of the mastery activities at their own pace and experience, separate from the larger groups. The purpose of this focus is to give children the experiences of being in specialized camps while still offering other 21st century skills and providing secure child care. We are looking forward to seeing familiar faces and getting to know new ones! I encourage all families to attend our camp orientation or to set up a meeting time prior to camp. As always we will be offering a safe environment where children are free to discover new skills, build friendships and form a sense of belonging. Sincerely, Alexis Fuller Summer Camp Director

DAILY SCHEDULE DESCRIPTIONS Extended Care Regular camp sessions will run from 8:30am-4:00pm each day, however, understanding the various needs of family, we will continue to offer before camp care (from 5:30-8:30am) and after camp care (from 4:00-5:45pm) at no additional cost! This time will focus on Camper Choice and Play and Variety Activities as we wait for other campers to join us. Opening & Closing Ceremonies Acknowledging the start and end of each day with a ritual gives your camp the chance to assemble as one large group, participate in fun and engaging routines, recognize and celebrate campers and counselors, and experience an inclusive and positive social environment. Huddle Group Getting to know campers’ names, interests, and qualities during small-group interactions creates a positive social environment, promotes friendships among campers, and reduces and resolves behavior conflicts and bullying. Camper Choice Supervised time, not directed by camp counselors, provides campers with an important opportunity to make individual choices and feel a sense of belonging at camp. Campers can use the time to explore various opportunities for indoor, outdoor or imaginative play.

Mastery Activities Sports of all Sorts, Art & Culture, S.T.E.M. Giving campers a chance to select an activity to practice at least three times during a camp week helps them build a sense of achievement. When campers return to an activity with a clear goal in mind, they are able to build skills in that activity. Weekly activities will be offered, with recognition for successful completion. Campers will use tracking systems to record accomplishments over the summer. Variety Activities Exploring a range of activities throughout the camp session allows campers to discover their interests and talents. These activities are a little more general than mastery activities, focused less on skill building and more on trying new things and connecting with others. Daily Reflection It’s easy to jump from one activity to the next in the excitement and rush of the camp day, but youth development is best supported by building in time for individual or small-group reflection on activities or the day’s events. These few moments will foster relationships and support belonging among campers and between campers and counselors. It’s a fun way to end each day.

Camper Planned Events Engaging campers to select, organize, and run an event builds Read and Relaxation collaboration skills and offers important leadership opportunities. An opportunity for the children to rest after the morning activities by These events will celebrate the fun of the week...maybe it will be a engaging in calming activities such as reading, coloring, and journaling. performance, showcase, or favorite game...the campers will decide! *Descriptions apply to additional schedules listed on pages 11 & 13

See full distribution schedule on our website by May 15th.

CHOICES WITHIN LIMITS

Healthy Eating & Physical Activity In response to a call by former First Lady Michelle Obama and the Partnership for a Healthier America, the Y has expanded its longtime commitment to supporting healthy living by adopting a set of Healthy Eating and Physical Activity (HEPA) standards. Healthy Eating and Physical Activity (HEPA) Standards are the basis of our Summer Foods Program and Summer Camp Nutrition and Activity guidelines. Beverage: • Water is accessible and available to children at all times, including at the table during snacks and meals.

“The Summer Foods Program gives children and teens 18 years and younger the opportunity to have a variety of nutritional meals throughout the summer at no cost. The best part about Summer Foods is seeing the participants get excited to try new food, we know we did our job when each day they come back for more and bring a new friend or family member.”

Nicky Lemieux Assistant Child Development Director

Food: • Children serve themselves (family style food and beverages. Y staff sit with the children during snacks and meals. • Fruits or vegetables are served for every meal and snack. • Provide foods that don’t list sugar as one of the first three ingredients. • Y staff model healthy eating behaviors by enjoying the same foods and beverages as children.

Physical Activity: • Children will be provided opportunities for moderate and vigorous physical activity for at least 60 minutes per day during a full-day program. • Y staff will model active living by participating in physical activities with children. Screen Time: • For children over 2, screen time is limited to less than 1 hour per day and will minimize exposure to ads marketing unhealthy foods. Family Engagement: • Parents and caregivers will be engaged using informational materials and activities focused on healthy eating and physical activity at least once every three months.

LEADERS IN TRAINING ENTERING GRADES 7 & UP

The LIT (Leaders in Training) program is a leadership development and mentoring program. This training program will provide an opportunity for youth that are too old for our camps to give back to the program by assisting our adult counselors with camp. The goal of this program is to provide participants with opportunities to improve their leadership skills and to be an example of the YMCA’s four core values (honesty, caring, respect, and responsibility). In addition to working on leadership, the LIT program develops skills needed to deal effectively with groups of children, organization, safety awareness, and motivation. Participants are expected to commit to a set schedule (or adequately communicate with their supervisor if unable to attend), participate fully in camp activities, and demonstrate positive role modeling at all times.

STURGEON BAY PROGRAM DIRECTORS: Tyler Powell & Alexis Fuller PROGRAM LOCATION: Dependent on Camp Assigned PROGRAM TIMES: Dependent on Camp Assigned Applicants for this program will need to fully complete an application and attend the mandatory leadership training. Applications can be found online at DoorCountyYMCA.org, or may be picked up at the Sturgeon Bay Program Center. • Required leadership training session June 14th, 9:00 am to 3:00 pm at the Lansing Avenue Center. Lunch will be provided. “A big reason why kids have so much fun at our summer camps is because we have great Leaders in Training. Our LIT’s help make the camps run smoothly while also getting a chance to participate in some of the fun activities with our campers. It truly is the best of both worlds!”

• Applications for this program must be submitted by June 2nd, 2017.

MY GOALS FOR THE

BEST SUMMER EVER! 1) 2) 3) 4) 5) please cut out and have your camper bring with them to the first week of camp

a reminder for your

CAMPER’S CHECKLIST... WHAT TO WEAR:

• Tennis shoes with socks • Camp t-shirt (provided)

DAILY BACKPACK ITEMS:

• Water bottle • Swimsuit & towel • Sweatshirt or light jacket • Comb/brush • Optional items: goggles, plastic bag for wet swim suit & towel

PLEASE DO NOT BRING:

• Money • Toys from home • Personal electronic items or cell phones

SUNSCREEN AND BUG SPRAY:

Sunscreen should be applied before camp, as campers spend a good portion of the day outside. The YMCA will provide sunscreen and bug spray to be re-applied throughout the day when conditions dictate. If you wish to provide your own sunscreen and bug spray, it must be in a separate container clearly labeled with the camper’s name as well as have the appropriate paperwork on file with counselors.
