krocmemphis.org | 9


MEDICAL PROTOCOL If your camper has any special medical needs please include this information on the waiver form. This includes all medical or behavioral diagnoses that may affect your child’s experience at camp. Even if your child does not take medication for the condition, knowledge of the condition helps our counselors to provide the best care possible for your child. ADMINISTRATION OF MEDICATIONS A Camp Counselor will administer all medications according to the Medical Information Form on file for the camper. All medications must be dropped off and picked up at the sign in/ out table daily. PERMISSION TO CARRY If you feel your child can be held responsible for administering his/her own medications (prescriptions such as asthma inhalers and Epi-Pens), please fill out the Permission to Carry Medication Form. Until this form is completed and signed by the parent and child, the Camp Counselor will administer all medications. GENERAL INFORMATION CONTACTING YOUR CAMPER We understand that urgent situations arise. If you should ever need to reach your child while she/he is in camp, please call the Camp Receptionist’s phone at 901-729-8081. COMMUNICATING CAMPER INFO TO CAMP STAFF The exchange of information between parents and staff provides insight for both parties. It is vital that you inform us of changes in your child’s life so the staff may provide the best care possible. We will treat this information with the utmost concern. There are several methods in which you may contact the camp staff about your child. You may communicate information with an available Camp Counselor during check-in every morning on our Parent Communication Log. Please note that this log is used by all parents. If you have any private matters to communicate to staff, you may call the Camp Receptionist at 901-729-8081. We will use the utmost discretion concerning your private matters. INCLUSION The Kroc Center is committed to the inclusion of ALL children in our Day Camp Programs. Parents of children with special needs should contact the Camp Manager at least two weeks prior to the desired start date. This is to determine whether the Kroc Center can provide appropriate accommodations and which camp(s) are best suited for your child. WHAT TO BRING TO CAMP -SWIMSUIT & TOWEL EVERY DAY.

WHAT NOT TO BRING TO CAMP Below is a list of items that are not welcome at Kroc Center Camps. Should your camper bring these, they will be confiscated and given to the parent at sign-out. This policy is for the campers’ safety, as well as to encourage group interactions. Additionally, the Kroc Center is not responsible for camper possessions that are lost or stolen. Please do not have your camper bring valuables! - Electronics: Cell Phones, iPads, iPods, tablets, mini game-boys, video cameras, etc… - Expensive jewelry - Personal toys such as cards/trading games, motorized cars, boats, dolls, and stuffed animals - Sugary snacks or drinks - Drugs or alcohol of any type - Weapons: guns, knives, nun-chucks or any other weapon (real or pretend: including water guns) - Money: We do NOT encourage campers to bring money to camp.

LOST ITEMS Lost & found items are kept for 2 weeks after a session and then donated to the local Salvation Army Family Store. The Camp lost & found box is located near check-in/check-out locations. However, if your child left an item in a different area of the building, there is a chance that it may be in the Lost & Found of another department. Please leave a note on the Parent Communication Log if you were unable to find your child’s item at the end of the day, and we will look in other areas after the camp day has been completed. We will have lost and found laid out at a table near check-in/ check-out. ILLNESS/INJURIES AT CAMP Camp is not designed to handle ill children. If your camper becomes ill while at camp, our staff will contact you to pick him/ her up. Staff will treat minor injuries requiring application of a bandage or ice. If further medical attention is required or if we are unsure of the severity of the injury, parents will be notified immediately.

krocmemphis.org | 11


REPORT TO PARENTS We try to keep our parents as informed as possible with our “Report to Parents� form. Forms will be held on site. This will tell you what happened, how we responded, and contact information for camp manager if you are to have any further questions. The Emergency Medical System (911) will be activated at the discretion of camp counselors and/or the camp manager. If we are unable to reach the parents and a child needs immediate medical attention, she/he will be transported to the hospital by an ambulance, and we will continue attempts to reach adults listed on the Camp Waiver Form. All expenses for emergency medical care are the responsibility of the parent or guardian. BEHAVIOR EXPECTATIONS The Kroc Center Camp Program strives to offer every child, regardless of ability, the opportunity to participate in recreational activities that are both fun and educational, allowing him or her to learn new skills, foster relationships, and build self-confidence. Our counselors work to create a positive environment that is free from discrimination or other factors that may prohibit campers from having an enjoyable experience at camp. Every child deserves to have a positive experience at camp, free from peer pressure, excessive negativity, and any other behavior that affects his/her self-esteem and/or ability to fully participate in camp activities. We take bullying of any kind very seriously. Camp Counselors are trained in utilizing positive discipline techniques to create a positive camp environment that welcomes campers to grow and learn. The best way to deal with problems is through a proactive approach informing the campers of what is expected of her or him and creating an environment that fosters openness, respect and fun. Children thrive creatively within a structured system; by giving the campers boundaries and expectations, the counselors give them the freedom to play and learn through their experiences. RULES 1. Respect: instructors, counselors, campers, materials and the building. 2. Follow directions the first time. 3. Have fun!

12| krocmemphis.org


BEHAVIOR MANAGEMENT POLICY Preventing negative behavior from occurring is the best way to avoid consequences for misbehavior. However, no matter how positively a camp group begins their journey, many factors are present, including long days of physical activity and a mixture of personalities and interests that may contribute to a camper breaking the rules and resulting in a need for disciplinary action. Should disciplinary action become necessary, our Camp Staff will utilize verbal warnings, time out sessions to think about the problem, and sometimes parents will be asked to pick-up their camper. In these situations, Camp Staff will provide the parent or authorized adult at pick-up with a Report to Parents form. This will explain the issues involved and what action was taken. Any questions about the incident may be directed to the Camp Counselors or the Recreation/Camp Manager. If a child has received 3 Report-to-Parent’s in a single day – the child’s parents will be contacted for early pick-up. Feedback is welcome; we want to do everything possible to make sure each camper has a positive camp experience. More serious or repeat instances may require a camper be placed on a Behavior Contract that is developed cooperatively between Camp Staff and the camper’s parents/guardians. This means that a meeting will be set up for the parents, camper and camp manager to have a conversation about the issue, and what steps should be taken to resolve it. Some acts, such as fighting, theft, and possession of weapons/drugs, may require a camper to be immediately suspended or expelled from the program. No refunds or credits are granted for missed days of camp due to behavior problems. WHAT TO EXPECT AT CAMP No matter what camp theme your child jumps into, they will get a chance to experience everything at the Kroc! MORNING Summer camp kicks off each day with the opportunity for children to get to know campers in other groups through a variety of games, ice-breakers, songs and stretching exercises. Parents are encouraged to drop off campers in time to participate in this valuable component of camp. All children will be a part of “Morning Rally Time” which is a dynamic kickoff to the day. We do counselor skits, dances, ice breakers, get-to-know-you team competitions, and devotionals. Activities and contests are planned by the Day Camp Staff and are designed to be all inclusive. LUNCH Lunch is not included in the total price of Recreation Camps this year. If you wish to purchase lunch for the coinciding camp week, that is no problem! For only $25 additional per week, we can provide lunch for your camper. We also have single days available for $5 per day. Continued on pg. 14 krocmemphis.org | 13


LUNCH (continued) If your camper is a picky eater, has allergies or has dietary restrictions, we encourage you to pack a lunch from home. NOTE: Campers staying for Extended Care are often hungry due to the amount of energy used earlier in the day. Please send your camper with additional snacks if staying past 4:30 p.m. MOVIE IN THE THEATRE Each week, campers watch a movie in our Chapel/Theater. Movies are selected based on appropriateness for the general camper population (G or PG), as well as the weekly theme. RECREATION & THEME TIME We will have multiple camp themes running simultaneously each week. There will be certain times where all camps are together such as Morning Rally, Lunch and various large group games. At other times, camps will split up and have “theme specific time.” Each camp will have an opportunity to experience everything the Kroc has to offer including: gym, sport court, pool, splash pad, outdoor soccer fields, Challenge Center, and more!

CHARACTER GROWTH We want the Kroc to be a place where your child grows in many different ways. We strive to see them grow in friendships, memories, skills, and character qualities. We will have devotional time built into our camp where our staff will be focusing on a particular character quality each week such as “integrity”, “trust”, or “teamwork.” The character quality theme each week will be tied into various activities. RECREATION CAMP PROGRAM OFFERINGS KINDER DAY CAMPS FOR AGES 4-6 YRS. The day will be broken up into different and exciting segments including, play time, PE time, craft time, education time, story time, and more! Our themes will provide your child with a chance to continue to learn and grow through the summer while having the time of their life!
