Welcome to

Country Day Summer 2019 Dear Parents and Campers, There are several ways to enjoy the Country Day Summer program. Sign up for Camp Cavalier – either morning, afternoon, or full-day - or only select Cavalier Classes to fit your summer schedule. You can even mix and match camp and classes to make the most of your summer. Please take some time to read through our Summer brochure; then register with Smart Tuition and make your choices. Many of our classes fill up quickly! The Camp Cavalier program hires experienced and enthusiastic high school and college students, and classes are most often taught by school-year teachers. Small groups and classes keep your child focused, happy, and challenged. Program activities and classes use most of the SCDS campus and there are days when the site is transformed into a winter wonderland or a luau. Camp Cavalier offcampus trips transport our campers to the Arden Park Pool, Bounce U, and Country Club Lanes; and Cavalier Classes include everything from art, dino dig, building your own 3D printer, and science to sports. This is your child’s opportunity to polish skills, learn something new, make new friends, and increase his or her independence in a positive and healthy environment. We encourage our campers to have fun and embrace their day. My staff and I have done our job if your child doesn’t want to leave camp, goes home dirty, or even sleeps through dinner! I have worked at Country Day for 18 years and Summer Camp is my favorite time of the year! I am fortunate to work with dedicated teachers and staff, hard-working counselors, and enthusiastic campers. I look forward to seeing you and your children this summer. Joy Pangilinan Director of After-School & Summer Programs

POLICIES AND PROCEDURES CAMP GUIDELINES AND POLICIES

By enrolling your child(ren) in the SCDS Summer Program, you agree to the guidelines and policies of the Country Day Summer Program below. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact Joy Pangilinan.

SIGN-IN/OUT PROCEDURES

Country Day Summer participants need to be signed in and out by a parent or guardian. Persons picking up a child must be 18 years of age or older with an I.D. and authorized by a designated person. If a parent or guardian is unable to sign out their campers, please notify the Summer Director.

PHOTOGRAPHY PERMISSION

SCDS reserves the right to use photos from summer camp or classes for the Summer Program brochure, social media accounts, and other SCDS promotional materials.

DISCIPLINE POLICY

All participants have the right to enjoy a positive, healthy, and safe experience in the Country Day Summer Program. As part of this right, all students are expected to follow and support our expectations of participation, positive attitude, and respectful behavior at all times. Behavior or language perceived by the Summer Director and staff to be disrespectful, hurtful, unsafe, or threatening may result in camper’s suspension or dismissal from the program. This extends to any behavior that undermines our goal to best serve the needs of all our participants.

ALLERGY POLICY

Sacramento Country Day School values the safety of all of our community members and exercises some common sense precautions to support students who have specific allergies. Though we are not a nut-free school, we strive to make it safer for children and adults with food allergies to participate in the full range of activities available at school. The School’s Responsibilities We will educate the faculty and staff about allergies, signs and symptoms of allergy and anaphylaxis, and provide training on the use of epinephrine (Epi-Pens and other such devices). Each child with a known allergy will have an Allergy and Anaphylaxis Emergency Care Plan in the school and PE offices, and, for Lower School students, in their classroom. We will educate students and parents about allergies and appropriate precautions. Each faculty and staff member will be made aware of which children in their care have serious allergies. All emergency medication and Emergency Care Plans will be taken on field trips. Children may not share or trade food with each other. We will inform other parents in the camp or class if a student’s allergy is so severe that particular items cannot be brought to school. The Family’s Responsibilities Provide a complete Allergy and Anaphylaxis Emergency Care Plan to the school office. Inform the school if your child’s allergy could be triggered by casual contact with the allergen (e.g. touch or inhalation rather than ingestion). If this is the case, more specific precautions will be implemented in your child’s classroom or grade to minimize the possibility of contact. Provide all proper medication for your child. Provide treats for your child to have on hand for birthdays or class parties. Children with known allergies may not eat food provided by others. If needed, treats may be stored in the refrigerator or freezer at school. Please label the treats. Continue to educate and remind your child to limit his/her foods to those provided by or approved by the family. Help to educate teachers, parents, and, if desired, classmates about food allergies. 5

Come enjoy glitter, glitz, jewels, twirling, stickers, rainbows, unicorns, words of kindness, and friendly manners! This extremely ornate and fancy week full of glamour, proper greetings, and conversation is designed to help our young friends’ radiance shine inside and out! Students will also learn about being kind, speaking to new friends, and greeting new people, as well as what to do if they are feeling shy. 15

The world moves at a mile a minute and the news never stops. What is news? Is it just politics? Or could it be food and culture? Entertainment? Sports? Join us as we take a deep dive into what it means to be a part of the news industry. We will study various forms of reporting, write articles and blogs, create a camp newspaper, and record a short on-the-scene coverage of an exciting event on campus. We will even take a field trip to a local news agency and see the news in action.
