Proof of identity may include a birth certificate, a passport or a birth registration card. This information MUST be submitted prior to the first day of camp. No camper may participate until all records are complete. You are encouraged to gather these documents at the time of registration.

Fees and Charges All billing is processed through our online registration system.

Staffing NSA’s summer programs are staffed by a director, assistant director, Little Summer Saints coordinator, teachers, counselors and special guest instructors. These personnel report directly to the director of summer programs. All copies of tuberculosis tests, criminal record checks and personal references are kept on file in the director’s office. The staff is obliged to report any suspected child abuse as required by #63.1-248.3 of the Code of Virginia.

Withdrawal Parents are informed of behavioral concerns and conferences are requested when necessary. A child would be asked to withdraw if he or she presented a serious problem and did not respond to normal disciplinary measures. These are the same measures used by NSA during the academic year.

Refund / Cancellation Policy Refunds must be requested in writing 10 days before the registered week/camp. Refunds will be processed minus a 20% non-refundable fee. Refunds will not be issued if a camper is dismissed because of disciplinary measures or voluntary withdrawal. NSA reserves the right to cancel any program for which there is insufficient enrollment. If a program is canceled, the complete registration fee will be refunded.

In the event of an emergency, only the camp staff with EMAT/MAT training can and will administer an EpiPen, Benadryl or an inhaler.* All other prescribed medication will need to be taken before or after camp. *EpiPens and inhalers must be in the original box to be accepted. Any camper who requires an EpiPen or an inhaler that does not provide a proper box and an action plan will not be allowed to attend camp.

Insect Repellent and Sunscreen Coppertone Kids SPF 50 sunscreen is provided by the camp and will be applied as needed. Parents sign permission for the use of this brand of sunscreen on their camp registration form. Manufacturer’s instructions for age, dosage and duration will be followed. OFF insect repellent is used as needed.

Lunch Little Summer Saints and full-day campers will need to pack a nut-free lunch each day of camp. A healthy snack plus fruits and vegetables will be offered during each session and in extended care.

T-Shirts Each camper will receive a free T-shirt that was designed by an NSA student. Additional shirts may be purchased at the camp office for $15.

Waivers A waiver is required for each camp. Campers who do not have a signed waiver will not be able to participate.

Field Trips Some of our camps involve traveling off campus. Please check the departure and return times for these camps in an email that will be sent prior to camp.

Cell Phone Policy Campers are prohibited from using cell phones during the camp day. They may have them in their book bags, but they must be off during the day. NSA is not responsible for any lost or damaged equipment.

Extended Day Program The Extended Day program includes morning care ($40 per week), extended care ($75 per week) or a combination of morning and extended care ($100

per week). Drop-in morning care ($10 per day) is available and must be paid at the end of each week. Extended care drop-in is also available for all campers ($20 a day) and must be paid at the end of each week.

Late Fees A late fee of $10 will be charged if children remain in Extended Care after 6:05 p.m. After 6:15 p.m., a $20 fee will be charged. The fee will increase $10 for each five minute period after 6:20 p.m. Late fees will be charged directly to the credit card on file at the end of the week.

Special Instructions The daily camp schedule involves almost constant activity. Campers should be dressed for play. Casual, comfortable, easy to change clothing and athletic shoes are recommended. Flip flops are not allowed unless indicated for a specific camp. Little Summer Saints will need to bring a bathing suit, a towel and a change of clothes on Wednesdays for water day. Please label everything.
