GENERAL INFORMATION

AMERICAN CAMP ASSOCIATION (ACA) ACCREDITATION We are extremely proud to be an ACA Accredited Camp. This means that children are spending their summer in a safe and fun environment, supervised by well-qualified counselors. We have undergone a thorough review of operations, staffing, programming and safety. The ACA is the recognized leader in organized camps. For more information about the ACA and what accreditation means to parents and the community, please visit www.acacamps.org. DAY CAMP STAFF Our staff is as diverse as our campers. The majority of our staff members are recruited from local colleges and universities. Most importantly, our staff is made up of people who love kids. They want to spend their time playing, teaching, and working with children. All Kroc Center Day Camp staff members are certified in basic First Aid & CPR and receive extensive training prior to the start of camp. You can be sure that we are hiring the best of the best to work with your children.

INCLUSION The Kroc Center is committed to the inclusion of all children in our Day Camp Program. Parents of children with special needs should contact the Day Camp Manager at least two weeks prior to the desired session’s start date to determine whether the Kroc Center can provide appropriate accommodations and which camp(s) are best suited for him or her. Inclusion intake forms are available upon request or as a download on www.kroccenter.org/day-camp. LUNCH PROGRAM Lunch and a morning/afternoon snack are provided to each camper free of cost! If a camper is a picky eater, has allergies or has dietary restrictions, we encourage parents to pack a lunch from home. Choosing not to use this benefit will not reduce the price of camp. Meals are prepared hot on the premises each day and provide one third of the USDA daily recommended nutrition. At least one vegetarian option is available each day. MEDICAL NEEDS Please include all pertinent medical information on the Camp Registration Form, including prescription and non-prescription medications and allergies. If your child needs medications administered during the camp day, a Medical Information Form must be completed. Medication(s) must be in their original prescription container with the child’s name printed on the label, and placed in a plastic bag. Prescription medications are secured by our staff in the Day Camp office. Parents can download the Medical Information Form from www.kroccenter.org/day-camp/ or request a copy from the Day Camp Manager. Parents may sign the bottom of the Medical Information Form to authorize campers to carry and administer his/her medications needed for life-threatening conditions such as an epinephrine injector (Epi-Pen) and asthma inhalers. Prior approval is needed for other medications to be carried by campers. Kroc Center staff will not dispense non-prescription medications without written parental consent.

STAFF-TO-CAMPER RATIO Kroc Center Day Camp ensures sufficient staff-to-camper ratios as recommended by the American Camp Association and will not exceed 1:10. A minimum of two staff are always present, regardless of the number of campers.

SPIRITUAL DISCOVERY

SPIRITUAL DISCOVERY The mission of The Salvation Army is to preach the gospel of Jesus Christ and to meet human needs in His name without discrimination. Accordingly, this summer, the Kroc Center Day Camp will offer its campers the opportunity to discover and explore God’s Word through five different Spiritual Discovery Camps. Campers enrolled in a Spiritual Discovery Camp will spend approximately two total hours each day in chapel and in age appropriate small group “huddle” settings, examining exciting lessons from the Bible. The remainder of the day will be spent exploring other activities at the Kroc Center, which may include: ice skating, skateboarding, field games, arts & crafts, swimming, and rock climbing.

BIBLES WILL BE PROVIDED FOR EACH CAMPER WHO ENROLLS IN A SPIRITUAL DISCOVERY CAMP.

GOING GREEN FOR GOD Ages 6 - 14 Going Green for God is an environmentally-focused camp that will inspire campers to grow in their faith, have fun, and change the world as they practice proper stewardship over creation. Echoing God’s call to care for creation, this camp will teach campers how to “go green” and start planting their own literal and figurative gardens in their homes and communities. Fee: $130 / Members $155 / Guests Offered: Week 7 (July 30 - August 3) 10

BUILDING LEADERS FOR GOD Ages 6 - 14 Campers will examine examples of Christian leadership in the Bible. Through exploring these accounts, campers will learn what Godly Christian leadership truly looks like. Practical application in regards to how campers can display Christian leadership in their schools, homes, and their communities will be a focus of study throughout the week. Fee: $130 / Members $155 / Guests Offered: Week 4 (July 9 - 13) THE ARMOR OF GOD Ages 6 - 14 Each day, campers will examine a different piece of armor that God promises to provide for His soldiers. By the end of the week, campers will understand the critical Importance of prayer and that only soldiers in God’s army can have access to His armor. Fee: $99 / Members $124 / Guests Offered: Week 3 (July 2&3 - 5&6) NOTE: Due to the Week 3, Independence Day holiday, camp will not be in session on Wednesday, July 4th.

THE CHRISTIAN ATHLETE Ages 6 - 14 Each sport has its own unique set of rules to govern its competition. Did you know that God has given us his own set of “rules” to direct how we are to live our lives on the court, field, and ice? During this offering, campers will learn about God’s expectations for how we are to live our lives. Lessons will be supplemented by extensive athletic competition through a variety of sporting activities. Fee: $130 / Members $155 / Guests Offered: Week 6 (July 23 - 27) TOUGH TIMES, TOUGH PEOPLE Ages 6 - 14 When times are tough, it takes tough people to trust and obey God. During each day of camp, participants will investigate an account from the Bible that focuses on a difficult situation. Through examining these accounts, campers will learn the importance of leaning on God when times are tough. Fee: $130 / Members $155 / Guests Offered: Week 8 (August 6 - 10)

CLUB 3:16 - NOW ON TUESDAYS & THURSDAYS!

Club 3:16 is one of our most popular programs.

CLUB3:16

FREE

Weekly themes are reflected during Morning Rally and throughout daily activities. We encourage children to get into the spirit of camp on Fridays by wearing a costume. Costumes should be ageappropriate, non-restrictive and allow for full participation in typical camp activities.

What better way to beat the heat, than to enjoy a few relaxing hours in a full-size movie theatre? Most Thursday afternoons, campers will be able to watch a movie in our Joan B. Kroc Theatre. Movies are selected based on appropriateness for the general camper population (G or PG), as well as the weekly theme. A complete list of movies is available at the Day Camp Office after the start of the camp season.

Fridays offer campers new opportunities and exciting activities that may include participating in performances or supporting their fellow campers from Specialty Camps. On Friday afternoons, campers come together on the Recreation Field for a themerelated “All-Camp” activity. Activities and contests are planned collaboratively by the Day Camp Staff and are designed to be all-inclusive. Don’t be surprised to see our Day Camp mascot, RJ Kroc, handing out awards to our “Campers of the Week!” 11

Camper safety is our top priority. Campers are expected to follow the peace contract by keeping hands and feet to themselves, listening to all instructions and staying with the group. I understand that if my child does not adhere to these expectations disciplinary consequences will occur. Repeat or more serious acts such as fighting, theft, and possession of weapons/ drugs will result in immediate suspension or expusion, necessitating removal from camp. I or an authorized adult is responsible for picking him/ her up immediately.
