~Summer Day Camp~ lled way for your child to make a lasting friendship this summer? MWR has invited Camp Adventure to provide summer recreation programs for the NSA Naples area youth of both DoD military and civilian personnel. The Summer Day Camp program is structured for children ages 6 (or 5 and completed kindergarten) through age 13. Program activities may include weekly field trips, swimming, arts and crafts, songs, games, and themed activities targeted towards individual age groups (5-6 yrs, 7 yrs, 8-9 yrs, & 10-13 yrs). Together, the Youth Activities Staff and Camp Adventure Staff are comprised of ed individuals who not only have excellent technical skills and an ability to lead youth, but they also operate using integrity, creativity, commitment, pride and sensitivity. MWR’s Summer Day Camp’s aim is to support youth development, while stressing fun and staying committed to both quality and excellence. Our mission at MWR School Age Care, Naples, Italy is to provide a safe and nurturing environment that promotes the physical, social, emotional, and cognitive development of all youth in our care while responding to the needs of military families, military readiness, and retention. As well, we strive to help our youth acquire autonomy, dence, responsibility and teamwork. Furthermore, it is our mission to work each day with the youth in our care to become outstanding individuals and role models in our community. We believe it is our responsibility to assist our youth in ict resolution skills, how to use their recreation time positively and how to make good decisions in their lives in and outside of our program. By doing these things, we hope to deter youth loneliness, drug/alcohol abuse, child abuse, youth suicide, youth crime and vandalism. Every attempt has been made to present accurate information, however MWR reserves the right to make alterations & changes to any and all of the summer Camp Adventure programs, rules, regulations and services at any time throughout the summer.

~Enrollment of Children with Special Needs and Illness~ Behavioral Support One of the problems that impacts quality child care for children with special needs, including those children who have not been formally identified is the lack of shared information between youth programs, DoDDs schools and medical (EDIS). In an effort to enhance inter-coordination among agencies serving our youth, the base Local Intercomponent Coordinating Committee (LICC) has established the Request for Information Release Form. The principal purpose of this form is to allow us to discuss child-related concerns, exchange basic information for services provided and impart background information with a child’s teacher, therapist, counselor or physician. This program has been established to help us meet the needs of children with medical conditions (hearing impairment, medications, etc.) and behavioral difficulties (ADD, ADHD, aggressive behavior, etc). Disclosing information is voluntary; however, failure to provide information can result in the discontinuation of services. In accordance with the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990, no child who meets the basic age and eligibility requirements may, solely on the basis of handicap, be excluded from programs when reasonable accommodations can be made to meet the special needs of the child. If a child is a part of the Exceptional Family Member Program or annotates any health problems on the registration form, we respectfully request to have a meeting with the parents prior to the child’s first day of camp in order to ensure that we are able to meet the child’s health needs (i.e. prepare the staff for communication problems, what response will be required should an allergic reaction occur, and more). At this time we may request information from the child’s physician and/or counselor to assist us in creating the best possible experience for the child. Our hope is to ensure that our staff is prepared to care for and create an environment where every child can be successful, regardless of medical or physical conditions such as ADD, ADHD, seizures, etc. We thank you in advance for your cooperation and support.

15


Illness If a child becomes ill during camp, a staff member will assess the child’s state. If the staff cannot provide relief for the child and/or the child is unable to effectively participate in the planned activities due to this illness, the staff will call the parent to come pick up the child. Youth Activities and Camp Adventure are not equipped to provide medical care even for mildly sick children. A parent or designated emergency contact must pick up the child within 1 hour of receiving notification of the child’s illness. An emergency contact will be called to pick up the child if the parent cannot be reached and/or cannot pick up the child in a timely manner. If your child is sent home sick or ill from camp, they may not return to the program for 24 hours unless they have a note of clearance to return from their doctor. Refunds will not be given due to illness, once Day Summer Camp has started. Medical Emergencies In the event medical assistance is needed, a staff member, who is First Aid/CPR qualified will administer care. The parent will be notified by phone and a report will be written. If the situation warrants, Youth Activities will request emergency medical assistance from the U.S. Naval Medical Hospital at the Support Site. If the parent cannot be reached, the emergency contact will be notified. If the parent or contact person does not arrive before emergency transport, the Youth Activities and/or Camp Adventure Director or appointed supervisor will accompany the child to the hospital. In the event of a sudden severe injury or illness that requires immediate treatment, when at Carney Park your child may be transported to a local Italian hospital, accompanied by staff members for medical care. Medication Staff members are not authorized to administer any medication to children for acute illnesses. However, Youth Activities staff members will administer medication for those children requiring doses during the day camp for a chronic illness (i.e. asthma, ADD, etc.) with the completion of the Permission of Medication Form to be filled out by the child’s physician. Parents and staff are required to sign the medication log everyday. On a daily basis, only the correct dosage of medication for that day, in the original pharmacy container, shall be provided to the Youth Activities Program. All medication will be locked in a secure location at the Youth Activities building; however, medication will not be kept overnight. We do ask that parents, if possible, try to alter their routines so that the medication is not needed at the Day Camp Program. For the safety of all children in our program, please DO NOT send any medications in your child’s backpack (i.e. cough drops, inhalers, EpiPens, etc.)

Our Child and Youth Programs have a comprehensive Disaster Preparedness Plan that covers all possible instances of emergency situations. If you would like to view this plan, please ask any of our front desk staff for assistance. Photography Parents wishing to photograph their child’s group must first notify the Camp Director and School Age Care Director. As part of the enrollment process, parents are requested to complete a consent form that permits the taking of photos by parents, staff and other persons listed on the consent form. Toothbrushes The American Dental Association recommends that any child spending more than 8 hours at one location have an opportunity to brush their teeth. It is advisable that each child brings a toothbrush and toothpaste with them to Camp, daily. There will be an opportunity after lunch for children to brush their teeth. Quality Control and Safety • Daily, the playground is inspected by our Camp Staff with any infractions being reported to the Camp Director for action. • Monthly, our Camp Office is inspected by a representative from Preventive Medicine at the Hospital. They inspect our bathrooms and kitchen for health hazards. • Monthly, a representative from the base Fire Department inspects our facility for fire safety hazards. • Quarterly, a representative from the base Safety Department inspects our facilities for safety hazards.

Toys Children are not allowed to bring toys or other personal objects to Camp. Doing so could result in confiscation of the object and/or suspension from Camp. We are not responsible for personal possessions that are lost, stolen or damaged while at Camp or the Before and After Care program. Lost and Found All lost and found items will be placed in a box inside the Support Site Youth Center. Every two weeks items in the box will be discarded. It is each child’s responsibility to keep track

of their own personal items. The Carney Park pool and the Support Site pools also have a lost and found box, which we are not responsible for maintaining. It is the parent’s responsibility to check both locations, if looking for any lost items.
