Summer Camp Parent Handbook

Welcome

Welcome to the Scripps Ranch Swim & Racquet Club Camp Program! We share the goal of providing a safe  environment in which children can have fun while  learning and enjoying new experiences, while also  continuing to develop their own skills and interests.  Our staff is dedicated to providing quality camp  experiences to youth, and we understand that each  child is unique and has their individual rate of  development.      The SRSRC School Year Camp Program is dedicated  to improving participant's quality of life and helping  children reach their full potential. We are dedicated to  continuing the growth of your child and to creating  friendships and memories that will last forever.     We look forward to having your child become a part of  our camps. We understand that this is still an  uncertain time, and we appreciate your trust in our  programs. We continue to monitor the CDC, State, and  County guidelines in regards to COVID-19 best  practices.     Please read through this information guide prior to  your child’s camp experience, as it may answer many  of the frequently asked questions about our program  this summer.    If we have not been able to answer your camp-related  questions in this document, please contact a Camp  Director. 

Program Goals

Beyond safety and supervision, our goal is to provide every child with special, positive, and growth-oriented  opportunities. We are hoping to have an emphasis on  basic group setting skills that have not been available  to most children for more than a year. SRSRC camps  are dedicated to meeting the following goals. Campers  will:  ★ Goal: Be provided with a safe environment in  which campers feel comfortable in trying new  things. Outcome: Campers will feel  comfortable with staff and participate in  activities offered throughout the camp day.  ★ Goal: Feel accepted by peers and staff as an  important contributor to our camp community.  Outcome: Campers will share a summary of  their camp experience during the day with  staff or peers, at their own comfort level.  ★ Goal: Develop independence and enhance  decision making skills. Outcome: Campers will  choose activities to participate in throughout  the camp day.  ★ Goal: Understand the importance of values  such as cooperation and respect. They will  gain confidence, self-esteem, and appreciate  oneself and others. Outcome: Campers will  participate in challenges and activities that  promote cooperation and team building.  ★ Goal: Gain a better understanding of the  subject being introduced in camp. Outcome:  Campers will be able to explain their camp  day and the details of the subject of their  camp.

COVID-19

Please pay special attention to items related to COVID-19 as they may reflect differences compared to  our normal camp operations.   

 

Camper Readiness How do you determine if a child is  eligible for a camp? 

Our Aviary location offers camps for kindergarten through 8th grade. Campers must be going into  kindergarten through eighth grade in the fall of 2021,  be potty trained, and turn at least 5 years old by the  first day of the session for which they are enrolled. Our  Aviary location does not offer camps for preschool,  transitional kindergarten or high school grades.    SRSRC requires a copy of the camper’s birth  certificate to be uploaded into the family’s CampBrain  account for all campers entering kindergarten to verify  age eligibility for camps.   

Is my child ready for a summer camp program? 

Camps are a wonderful experience that enrich the lives of youth. It is important that the camper is ready  for the experience to make their time at camp  successful and enjoyable. Things to think about when  determining if your child is ready for the camp  environment includes, but is not limited to, the  following:  ★ Does your child put his or her own clothes on  without assistance?  ★ Does your child listen to instructions?  ★ Does your child ask an adult for help when  needed?  ★ Does your child perform all toileting  independently? 


17 - SRSRC SUMMER CAMPS 2021 ★ Does your child feel comfortable in loud and  busy environments?  ★ Does your child cooperate with his or her  playmates?  ★ Does your child respond reasonably well to  changes?  ★ Does your child enjoy making friends?  ★ Is your child able to follow directions related to  hand washing hygiene, wearing a face mask  as appropriate, and keeping their hands to  themselves? 

These questions should be asked by the parents in  order to assist with determining readiness. If the  answers are primarily “no,” then it might not be the  right time for your child to get the most out of a camp  experience. That’s okay! Each child is different and  camps may not be the right fit for every child or at  every stage of life. Campers may feel more  comfortable being able to ask an adult for help, when  he or she can adapt to changes, and when he or she is  able to follow instructions. This is important in setting  up campers for success.    If the answers are “yes,” the camper may be better  prepared for a happy, enjoyable experience in the  camp environment, and get more out of what the  camp day has to offer.  Pool time is more fun when the camper can change  independently and go straight to the activity, free  choice activities are better with cooperation skills and  being able to handle a loud environment, and the  group setting can be more enjoyable when a child  likes making new friends.   

My child has special needs. Will this camp be a good fit? 

Our camp activities may be physically and/or emotionally demanding at times, such as games  involving a lot of movement, directions needing a lot  of attention, and social interactions with many other  individuals. Our goal is for campers to have a fulfilling  experience.    If you have any questions regarding your child’s  readiness for camp or camp fit, feel free to contact a  Camp Director to have your questions answered. We  would love to speak with you ahead of time to help  you evaluate whether our camp environment is right  for your camper.   

Registration Process Do you accept a deposit for  registration? 

Payment can either be made in full at the time of registration or a non-refundable deposit can be made  with installments scheduled on predetermined days to  pay the rest of the fees.    Deposits are $25 for members/$50 non-members  per week long camp, and $25 per member/$50 per  non-member for our mini camp week. Non-refundable  deposits are due at time of registration.    Installments for Summer 2021 are scheduled for  processing through our registration system April 10th,  May 10th, June 10th, July 10th, and August 10th.  Dates shown on your credit card statement may  reflect differently depending on weekend dates and  time of processing.   


18 - SRSRC SUMMER CAMPS 2021

What if my installment payment is declined? 

If your credit card is declined, another card on file in CampBrain will be charged. A staff member may  contact you for updated information. Please keep your  credit card information up to date. Campers may not  attend camp if there is an outstanding balance,  including unpaid balances on a membership account.   

Are you processing installments during the COVID-19 pandemic? 

We are currently processing installment payments, since the services are set to occur in the future. 

What types of fees are there for  registration? 

Each camp has a registration fee. Fees will vary depending on membership status (member or  non-member) and whether any other add-on program  options are selected. Each camp also has a  non-refundable deposit. 

Does SRSRC o er financial  assistance? 

Unfortunately, we are unable to offer financial assistance.   

What is the SRSRC Camp refund  policy? 

If SRSRC cancels a camp, we will provide a full refund for you and you will be notified within 5 days of the  camp start date so that other arrangements can be  made.     If you need to cancel an upcoming camp, please  request a cancellation 14 days or more prior to the 

start of the camp week. A refund minus the non-refundable deposit will be processed for  week-long camps. Refunds will not be given if the  cancellation request is made 48 hours or less prior to  the start of the camp session.      What is the SRSRC camp transfer  policy? 

A camp transfer request may be made to transfer a camper from one week to another within the same  camp season. Credit balances may not be used for  either a different SRSRC Youth Children’s Program,  membership account or a different camp season in  the future. Transfer requests must be made 14 days  or more prior to the camp week. All transfers will be  assessed a $15.00 transfer fee per camper for  members and a $25.00 transfer fee per camper for  non-members for week-long camps.   

Will you be open the entire summer? 

SRSRC Summer Camps will operate within the guidelines provided by the local and state authorities.  Due to the changing nature of the current situation,  and keeping the health and safety of our camp  families and staff in mind, we will follow these  guidelines and mandates up to and including any  necessary discontinuation in programming. However,  it is our hope that once we open camps we will be  able to complete the camp season.   

Can I sign my camper up for all the add-on options within the same  week?  

Yes. You may sign up your camper for all the weekly add-on options if you register for our full camp day  option, including our Fun Friday Field Trips and Tennis 


19 - SRSRC SUMMER CAMPS 2021 Lesson. If you sign up for our AM half day week long  option, you will have the choice to add-on to our Swim  Lesson option and/or one of our 1-hour Enrichment  programs. If you sign up for our PM half day week  long option, you will have the choice to add-on to one  of our 1-hour Enrichment programs and/or our Swim  Lesson option.   

My camper is registered in the full day week-long option, how do I  know what time they will be  participating with their lessons or  enrichment add-on group?  

A camp director will email you out your campers add-on schedule for the week with the times and any  extra information that is needed for your camper to be  prepared for their following camp week. These  schedules are subject to change. 

Why can’t I see the camp I want for  my child when I try to register? 

You will not be able to see camps during the registration process when your child does not meet  the registration requirements, such as grade level, or  when the camp and its waiting list are full.    

Can I ask to see who is registered for certain camps? 

We are unable to tell you which campers are registered for specific camp weeks or program  add-on’s. Part of the camp experience includes  making new camp friends and connections.   

Can my camper and his/her friend be in the same group during the 

day?

Each individual camp usually stays together in a small group during a majority of the day; however,  depending on camp needs and physical distancing  guidelines, camp may divide into groups for activities.  We may group campers based on grades, staggered  registered times, ability, and/or households, in which  case we may not always be able to keep friends in the  same group. You may submit a request to a camp  director. We try to keep friends together, but we also  encourage campers to make additional new friends.   

What if the camp week I want for my child is already full? Is there a  waiting list? 

Our online registration is open to all and you may add your camper to the online waiting list. Camps that are  full and offering a waiting list will show up when you  log in to the CampBrain registration system. Please  continue to check back frequently by logging into the  registration system to see if a spot has opened up for  your camper. We would also encourage that you email  a camp director. We will do our best to notify parents  from the waiting list when a spot becomes available.   

What is your registration priority policy? 

Due to the current circumstances surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic, we foresee a limited number of  spots being available. Priority will go to the  participants who are currently enrolled in our School  Year Camp or our Preschool Program and then those  who were previously registered in any of our SRSRC  Youth Children’s Programs for the school year of  2020-21.   

Why do you have a registration


20 - SRSRC SUMMER CAMPS 2021

priority policy?

Our goal is to accommodate all families within the community who need care during the school year.  However, in the event that the relevant agencies limit  our capacity significantly, we need a way to prioritize  enrollment. We are a membership-based organization,  which warrants member priority. We also serve local  Scripps Ranch schools during the school year and we  wish to provide those who may be a part of our school  year programs with continued care.   

Camper drop off will be located in the lobby in front of the Big Room. A staff member will greet you and help  direct you to the backpack area after sign in is  complete. Campers will not be allowed to sign in prior  to 7:30am.    If you drop off your camper after 8:30 you may ask a  front office staff member to radio the camps for their  location before entering the camp.    

Where do I pick up my camper?

I am an essential worker. Do I have priority? 

Camper sign out will be located in the lobby in front of the Big Room. Once properly signed out a lead staff  will radio for your camper to meet you in the lobby. On  Friday’s, a staff member will help direct you to the  backpack area after sign out is complete to pick up all  your camper’s belongings. All belongings at the end of  the week will be thrown away due to state guidelines.   

Will my child(ren) be photographed or placed on social media? 

Do I need to bring my ID to pick up my camper? 

First of all, thank you for your work during this unprecedented time! We will take into consideration  the needs of essential workers, but cannot guarantee  enrollment. Essential workers may be requested to  complete a verification form.   

Campers will only be photographed or videoed by a camp director during a camp project/activity for  recognition of that camper or group or to be used for  promotional purposes or to share with camp families.  Please contact Mrs. Monica in writing if you would like  to withdraw your photo/media permission at  monica@srsrc.com. A new withdrawal request must  be submitted at the start of each camp season.   

Drop Off, Pick Up, & Transportation Where do I drop o

my camper?

Yes. We require photo identification from ALL parents/guardians or other individuals picking up a  camper. Please be ready to present photo  identification at each pick up. This is for safety  purposes.   

Who is authorized to pick up my camper? 

Primary adults listed on the registration account and those listed on the camper’s health history form may  pick up the camper. Camp staff reserve the right to  request the individual picking up to present a picture  I.D. If someone not listed on the Camper Health  History Form will be picking up for the day, you may  make note of the name of the individual picking up on  the sign-in and out sheet with a camp director. 


21 - SRSRC SUMMER CAMPS 2021 Individuals picking up your camper must be at least  18 years of age.   

What if I need to add or delete someone from my authorized  pick-up list? 

Please make the necessary changes on your camper’s health history on your online camp registration  account. If you have difficulties updating the necessary  information, please contact the Front Desk for  assistance at 858-271-6222.    If the change needs to be made the day of, then  please notate the information with a camp director.   

Who provides transportation?

SRSRC vans will be used to allow for the safest means of transportation. Our drivers are required to have a  valid driver’s license and be insured, maintain a good  driving record, and hold current certification in first aid  and CPR. Vehicle capacities will be followed as well as  state transportation guidelines.   

Do you provide transportation between camp and home? 

No, we do not pick up campers from home or drop off campers to their home.   

What if my camper is going to be absent? 

If your camper will be absent from camp, please call or e-mail the Camp Director by 8:00 a.m. There will be  no credits or refunds for missed days of camp.    AVIARY CAMPS   Monica Oates, 858-271-6222 ext. 132, 

monica@srsrc.com and Jonathan Oates, 858-271-6222 ext. 132, jon@srsrc.com    

What if I am going to be late picking up my camper? 

Please contact the Front Desk at 271-6222 and notify staff that you will be late to pick up. We appreciate  your following the selected drop-off and pick-up times.  Pick-ups that occur after 5:30pm will be assessed a  fee of $1 per minute per camper. If a camper has not  been picked up by 5:30pm we refer to his/her  emergency information and begin calling numbers  listed. If by 6:30p.m., we have not heard from a parent  or emergency contact, we have no other alternative  and are obligated to turn the child over to Child  Protective Services.   

What if I need to drop o my camper late or pick up my camper  early? 

Schedule options have been designed to be flexible for your schedule; however, in the event that a need  arises for a change in your selected drop off time or  pick up time, please confirm availability with a Camp  Director. Make arrangements at least 1 day in  advance.    If you must pick up your child due to an emergency,  please contact the front office, who can relay your  message to the camp director or lead staff.   

What if I need before and/or after care for my camper? 

The camp drop-off and pick-up options have been designed to provide you with flexibility to  accommodate morning and afternoon schedules. 


22 - SRSRC SUMMER CAMPS 2021

Am I required to sign my camper in  and out daily? 

SRSRC requires that all children are to be properly signed in and out by an adult age 18 or older, so that  children can be properly assigned to SRSRC staff in  the morning and properly signed out to the adult after  camp. Unfortunately, siblings and others under the age  of 18 may not sign out a camper.    Due to COVID-19 related considerations, a camp  director or lead staff may sign your child in and/or out  for you to minimize the use of shared pens.   

Can my teenager sign him/herself out? 

Participants in 6th - 8th grade will be allowed to sign him/herself in and out with a Camper Release Form  completed/signed by the parents. Campers with a  release form are expected to sign in at the selected  sign-in time and sign-out at the selected sign-out time.  Campers who sign themselves out must be picked up.  This convenient option allows for the camper to sign  out, while the parent waits in front of the facility.   

What is the pick-up procedure if there is an emergency at camp? 

If there is an emergency at camp, such as a fire, lockdown, etc., we will notify the parents by email,  push notification, phone call, or mobile application. We  will let the parents know when it is safe to come pick  up their camper and provide parents with further  instructions. 

Preparing for Camp

How can I get a camp agenda?

The camp weekly agenda will be posted on the camp portion of our website at www.SRSRC.com. Camp  weekly agendas will be available at the front office.  The front desk receptionist can make a copy of the  schedule for you. These schedules are subject to  change. The schedule gives you an idea of what your  camper will be doing in order to be prepared for their  activities. All activities and schedules are subject to  change. Your campers add-on option schedule will be  emailed to you directly prior to the week of  registration.   

What should my camper wear to camp? 

Campers are required to wear closed-toe shoes, such as tennis shoes. Campers must wear closed-toe shoes  during camp activities. Skirts and dresses should not  be worn to camp. We will be engaging in activities that  require running and some activities that may get  messy, so we suggest that campers wear clothing  appropriate for their camp activities.   

Who is required to wear a face covering at camp? 

Currently, all adults must wear a face covering while at camp. This includes parents who are dropping off or  picking up campers and staff. Each individual must  have their own mask and may not share masks.    Campers are required to wear a face covering while  at camp. At certain times, when physical distancing is  more feasible, such as during snack times, lunch time,  and certain sitting activities where campers are  unlikely to come within 6 feet of someone from  outside of their household, campers may be allowed  to remove their masks. Please note that face 


23 - SRSRC SUMMER CAMPS 2021 coverings will be worn for the majority of the cam day.  Campers must wear face coverings as long as the  current health orders mandates wearing face masks  outside of the house when it is likely that they will  come within 6 feet of someone from outside of their  household. When the local or state governmental  mandates do not require campers to wear masks,  there may still be some activities in which SRSRC  reserves the right to require face coverings. Campers  may elect to wear a face covering for their own health  and safety concerns regardless of the status of local  and state mandates.   

What should my camper bring to camp? 

Campers are required to bring a face covering to camp. Campers will be assigned a cubby for the week  to put their items.    Campers must bring a morning snack, a lunch, an  afternoon snack, and a drink daily. Please send food  with your camper that is non-perishable and does not  require heating, as we cannot accommodate with  refrigeration and heating. Campers should also bring  water to stay hydrated throughout the day.    Lotion sunscreen will be provided for campers;  however, they can bring their own to use, and are also  encouraged to bring a hat and a sweatshirt. Campers  are encouraged to keep items in a backpack;  everything should be labeled.   

Am I required to disinfect my campers belongings each day? 

Yes. You are responsible for taking home your camper’s belongings each day to be cleaned and  disinfected. 

Should my camper bring money to camp? 

Campers should not bring money to camp.

What shouldn’t my camper bring to  camp? 

Expensive clothing, jewelry, CD players, iPods, money (unless otherwise specified), toys, games, cards,  alcohol, drugs, personal sports equipment (unless  required by SRSRC), vehicles, animals, weapons, cell  phones, etc. SRSRC is not responsible for lost or  stolen items. Campers are responsible for the  belongings that they bring with them to camp.   Certain items, if brought to camp, may result in  immediate removal from the camp, such as weapons,  alcohol, and drugs.    If cell phones are brought to camp, they must be kept  in the child’s backpack. SRSRC is not responsible for  the loss, theft, or damage of cell phones and  electronics, nor the content accessed on these  devices.   

Camp Food & Snacks Should I pack water and a snack for  my child? 

There will be a snack break in the morning during camp and in the afternoon. Snack at this time is not  provided by SRSRC. Though we provide snack time  and water breaks, it is ultimately the parent’s  responsibility to send enough food and fluids with the  child for the day. Campers will have the option to refill  water bottles from water jugs. 


24 - SRSRC SUMMER CAMPS 2021  

Can my camper buy lunch during camp? 

Campers will not have the opportunity to purchase snacks or lunch items during camp. Campers must  bring a morning snack, a lunch, an afternoon snack,  and a drink daily. Please send food with your camper  that is non-perishable and does not require heating, as  we cannot accommodate with refrigeration and  heating. Campers should also bring water to stay  hydrated throughout the day.   

Will the Snack Shack be open? Will lunch be provided on Fridays? 

The Snack Shack will not be open during the school year. Lunch will not be provided for campers on  Fridays.   

What if my camper forgets his/her lunch? 

If a camper forgets their lunch, the parent will be called to bring the camper a lunch. If unable to do so,  a pre-packaged lunch may be provided and a $10.00  fee will be assessed and charged to your CampBrain  account.   

What if my camper loses something at camp? 

If a camper loses an item on-site, there will be a lost and found area near the camp backpack area. The  camp backpack area will be emptied and cleared at  the end of each week.    Labeling items, keeping items together in a backpack,  and not bringing expensive items are a good way to  help prevent loss. SRSRC is not responsible for items 

that are lost, broken, or stolen.  

What camp activities have additional waivers? How do I get  them? 

Some camp activities may require additional waivers to be completed for the vendors that we utilize. An  email will be sent to you with the required waiver, or  may be found in your CampBrain account under the  paperwork section.   

What do I do with completed waivers? 

Please upload the completed waiver to the appropriate camper paperwork spot in your  CampBrain account. This is the preferred method of  waiver submission. This ensures that we have the  waivers prior to your camper’s arrival to camp.     Additionally, waivers can be turned in to the camp  counselors during morning sign-in or e-mailed to  waivers@srsrc.com. Campers must have the waiver  completely filled out by a parent in order to  participate. There cannot be any exceptions made.   

Camper Supervision Who is watching my camper? 

The majority of our camp staff are college students and adults within the child care career setting. Some  members of our staff may be credentialed teachers,  some are in college majoring in elementary education,  some are already working at schools in local school  districts, and some work with our youth programs  year round. 


25 - SRSRC SUMMER CAMPS 2021   Of our staff, at least 80% are 18 years of age or older.  All counselors are trained in CPR and first aid. Some  may have lifeguarding certification or other relevant  special certifications. Our staff is trained to use the  “rule of three,” to avoid situations in which they may  be one on one with a camper. All of our staff is  devoted to working with and providing care for the  children in our camps.   

What training does the camp sta receive? 

All new camp staff members are required to attend the equivalent of four to five days of training prior to  working in the camp program. Many of our camp staff  have been campers at SRSRC when they were  younger, some have had multiple summers of  experience with us, and some are year round  employees of SRSRC in the Youth Programs     Department. Leadership staff also attend training  sessions prior to the start of camp. During the training  sessions, camp counselors learn the policies, the  procedures, leadership skills, how to properly perform  head counts, how to sign campers in and out, and  their responsibilities. Training sessions also focus on  developing and improving interaction skills with  children and how to respond to disruptive behavior in  a positive way.   

How many sta

will be watching my child? 

The American Camp Association recommends the following ratios due to the variety of activities typically  involved in the camp experience (field trips, large  group activities, etc): Ages 4-5 years Ratio: 1:6, Ages  6-8 years Ratio: 1:8, and Ages 9-14 years Ratio: 1:10. 

There may be exceptions to the ratios depending on the camp environment, especially with camps that  offer enrollment for multiple age groups.    Due to the nature of our camp program and activities  planned, it is our intent to never surpass a 1:12 ratio  for our campers.   

Can camp sta

baby-sit?

Our camp counselors work well with children; however, due to COVID-19 and the desire to minimize  risk to campers and staff, we strongly discourage  having staff babysit. It is our policy that staff members  can only babysit for those who are in our SRSRC  camp program if it is something set up on their own,  and any babysitting done by staff is not affiliating with  our camp program or any SRSRC program.   

Can camp sta

accept presents?

Our staff members are very dedicated and work hard; however, it is our policy that camp staff cannot accept  gratuities. If instead you wish to offer feedback on a  staff member’s job well done please contact the Camp  Director.   

Camper Behavior What are the camp rules? 

1. Be Respectful & Honest. Example: Respect others, respect equipment, be honest and tell  the truth.  2. Be Responsible. Example: Make good  decisions, use equipment the correct way.  3. Keep your body, objects & unkind words to  yourself. Example: Keep your hands and feet 


26 - SRSRC SUMMER CAMPS 2021 to yourself and only say positive words.  4. Stay with your Group. Example: Always ask a  counselor when you need to use the restroom  or get a drink of water. Never leave your group  or buddy.  5. Listen and Follow Directions. Example: Listen  when counselors and others are speaking, ask  questions if you don’t know and follow  directions the FIRST time asked.  6. Have FUN!! 

What happens if my camper has a  discipline problem at camp? 

Our camp staff is trained to deal with discipline issues in a respectful and positive manner in order to resolve  the misbehavior. It is not unusual for a camper to test  their limits and our staff is trained to handle these  situations.    Our staff speaks with the camper, allows the camper  to share his/her view of the issue and any relevant  information, allows the camper to take time out to  think about their actions and how it affects the camp  experience, and then let the child return to the activity.    If misbehavior is recurrent or the misbehavior is more  severe or disruptive, the child may either be asked to  sit out during an activity or the parent may be called  to pick up the child. Some acts may result in  immediate suspension or expulsion of the child from  the camp program including but not limited to:  fighting, intentionally harming others, theft, and  possession of weapons or drugs.    Our policies do not grant refunds or credits for missed  days of the camp program due to a behavior issue.   

The following steps are generally used for our discipline plan:  1. The camper is given a verbal warning, which  may or may not involve a timeout depending  on severity.  2. The camper is given a written behavior report,  which one copy is given to the parent and  another copy is given to the camp director.  With a behavior report, the camper will sit out  during part of an activity and reflect upon their  actions with the guidance of a staff member.  3. If the camper receives either three behavior  reports or a behavior report that involves a  threat to the safety of the camper or others,  suspension or expulsion from the camp  program may result depending on the severity.  We do our best to work with the camper to  help resolve the issue before implementing a  suspension or expulsion. Physical misbehavior  (such as hitting) during previous Youth  Programs enrollments at SRSRC will be taken  into account when determining the  appropriate response.   

What happens if my camper’s behavior causes his/her removal  from camp? 

Our goal is for campers to have a successful and fulfilling time at camp. We wish the best experience  for each child, which means taking into account how  disruptive behavior may impact others’ experience at  camp. If our camp is not a fit at this time, and the  camper must be removed from camp, the camper’s  parent will be notified to pick up the camper.    Campers who are removed from the camp program  may enroll in camps again one year from the removal 


27 - SRSRC SUMMER CAMPS 2021 date pending a successful meeting with and approval  by the camp director. The one year period gives the  camper the opportunity to grow and develop their  skills prior to enrolling in any SRSRC affiliated youth  program.   

Camper Health & Safety What if my camper needs to take  medication during the camp day? 

The Camp Director, a Coordinator, a lead counselor, or staff member with Camp Director authorization, will  administer your child's medication as directed. In  order to administer the medication, we must have the  following:  1. The camper's medication needs to be brought  to camp and given to the Camp Director or a  Coordinator in a paper bag in its original  container. Please label the bag with the  camper's name, and camp. Please do not pack  the medication in the child's backpack or in  the child's lunch.  2. The medication must be prescribed by a  doctor and in its original prescription bottle  with your child's name printed on the label.  Include written instructions from a physician  as per quantity, time to administer, any other  directions, and written clearance giving SRSRC  permission to administer the medication.  Please specify if refrigeration is necessary.  3. A completed medication release form must be  completed every week or for the whole  summer for campers who register for multiple  weeks. This medication release form must be  on file with the Camp Director before  medication can be administered to your child. 

This form is available from the Camp Director or a Coordinator, as well as online in your  CampBrain account.  4. No over the counter medication will be  administered unless approved on the Health  History form or with parent's written consent.  5. Please pick up your child’s medication after  the last week for which your camper is  enrolled. If it is not picked up in a timely  manner, SRSRC may dispose of the  medication. 

What if my camper needs special accommodations? 

If your camper requires special accommodations, such as special medical needs, please contact the  Camp Director prior to registering for camps to  discuss if we are able to provide suitable  accommodations for a successful camp experience.  Our goal is for our campers to be successful and feel  included at camp, however, we must also work within  the limitations of our training and resources.   

Will campers and sta be screened for illness prior to attending camp? 

Campers and staff will be required to participate in a temperature check daily prior to joining the camp  group. Campers and staff who have a temperature of  100* or above will not be admitted to camp. Any  camper or staff member who exhibits signs or  symptoms of illness will not be allowed at camp. In  the event that a thermometer is not available, SRSRC  may utilize a symptom checklist.    Please ensure that you have a backup plan in case  your camper cannot attend camp.   


28 - SRSRC SUMMER CAMPS 2021

What are the signs and symptoms of COVID-19?  The signs and symptoms vary. They include, but may  not be limited to, fever, cough, shortness of breath or  difficulty breathing, chills, shaking with chills,  headache, fatigue congestion or runny nose, nausea,  vomiting, diarrhea, sore throat, muscle pain, and/or a  new loss of taste or smell.   

What are some resources to learn about COVID-19? 

★ State of California - https://covid19.ca.gov/ ★ San Diego County -  https://www.sandiegocounty.gov/coronavirus. html  ★ Centers for Disease Control and Prevention  (CDC) -  https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov /index.html 

What if my camper is ill or injured  while at camp? 

If your child becomes ill during camp, we will contact the parent to pick the child up. If the legal guardian  cannot be contacted, SRSRC staff will begin contacting  the emergency contacts listed on your child's medical  form.    Camp is not designed to handle ill children, so it is the  parent's responsibility to pick his/her child up, or  arrange pick up by an emergency contact, within 30  minutes. Children who are showing signs or  experiencing symptoms of illness should not attend  camp, and will be sent home.    Not feeling well may prevent a child from fully  participating in, and enjoying, the camp experience. 

Sick campers also risk the health of other campers who wish to enjoy their own camp experience.    If your child becomes injured while at camp, SRSRC  staff will take whatever steps necessary to obtain  medical care for your child. For a minor injury an  accident report will be filled out. For an injury that is  believed to be beyond our scope, emergency  personnel will be called or your child may be  transported to the hospital in an SRSRC vehicle. Any  expenses for routine or emergency medical care are  the responsibility of the parent.   

What if a camper or sta member becomes ill with COVID-19? 

In the event that a camper or staff member becomes ill with COVID-19, it is the adult’s responsibility to  communicate this with a Camp Director or  Administrator of SRSRC. We will notify camp families  of the possible exposure.    Anyone who has had contact with an individual with  COVID-19 should remain home for 14 days per CDC  guidelines.     Anyone who has had COVID-19 may return to camp  when it has been ten days since the symptoms first  appeared, AND 3 days with no fever, AND symptoms  have improved.    This guidance may change pending changes in  guidance from relevant governmental agencies. The  camp program will comply with any requests made by  the County if an individual in our program tests  positive.   

What precautions is SRSRC taking to


29 - SRSRC SUMMER CAMPS 2021

help prevent the spread of illness, such as COVID-19? 

SRSRC is taking recommended precautions to help prevent the spread of illness. These include, but are  not limited to, additional hand washing, no food  handling by staff (no Snack Shack), modifying camp  activities, providing hand sanitizer stations, frequent  cleaning of commonly touched surfaces, staggering  the drop-off and pick-up times, reducing camp  capacity, requiring face coverings as appropriate,  temperature screenings, and reinforcing good habits  with kids (hand washing, covering your cough,  refraining from sharing food, etc.)    Physical distancing will be utilized as practicable, such  as during sign in and out times, or when waiting in line  for handwashing activities. Activities will be designed  to be no-touch. However, SRSRC cannot guarantee  that your camper will engage in physical distancing  throughout the entirety of the camp day. Campers will  be encouraged to keep adequate physical space  between each other, to keep their hands to  themselves, and may be aided by visual guides for  certain activities, such as lining up for hand washing  or for signing in.   

What is SRSRC’s lice policy?

We have a nit-free policy. If a child is found to have lice or nits, the parent will be called to pick the child  up. Children will be able to return to the program once  they are nit-free as seen by a lead staff member.   

Will sunscreen be applied to my camper throughout the day? 

Sunscreen application times are in the morning, during snack time, during lunchtime, and in the  afternoon. Sunscreen is also applied before any water 

activities, such as swimming. If you do not want sunscreen applied to your camper, or would like a  specific type of sunscreen applied, please have a note  sent to the camper's camp counselor for the session  and provide them with the specific sunscreen.    At SRSRC, although we provide lotion sunscreen to  each camper, our camp counselors do not physically  apply sunscreen to the campers. Counselors will then  do their best to assist your camper when applying  sunscreen. The availability of this help may depend on  current physical distancing guidelines, so please send  you camper to camp with sunscreen already applied.    

What is the camp's bathroom procedure? 

On-site campers utilize the buddy system. No camper is to go to the restroom without a buddy or without a  group.   

Can camp sta

report child abuse?

Yes, any professional working with children is considered a mandated reporter. All camp counselors,  coordinators and directors are all required by law to  report suspected child abuse to the proper authorties.  The telephone number of the Child Protect Services is  (619) 560-2191. The Family Stress Center (619)  691-1331 assists families with stressful times and  provides suggestions for parenting techniques.   

What if I need to speak with my  camper while he/she is at camp? 

Some situations may arise in which it is necessary to get a hold of your child during camp. Please call the  front desk staff, and leave a message with them. They  will do their best to relay the message to the  appropriate camp counselors and notify your child. 


30 - SRSRC SUMMER CAMPS 2021  

How do I communicate with the SRSRC sta ? 

Communication between parents and the camp staff can either be informal or formal. We value  communication with parents as it gives staff valuable  insight. Vital information to relay to camp staff may  include changes in the family, including: moving,  hospitalization of a family member or friend,  altercations in the parents' relationship, etc.    Such factors may influence a camper's behavior and  relationship with peers, so this information is  beneficial to staff in order to best provide for the  child's needs. All such information will be treated with  the utmost confidence. Communication can occur  through camp counselors, the camp director, or the  coordinators. Information pertinent to your camper’s  health, safety, or experience may be provided to select  camp staff working directly with your child in addition  to leadership staff.   

Program Content

Is there a structure that my camper will follow? 

There is a daily agenda that incorporates a structure flow for all campers to follow, helping them transition  from one activity to another. Health and safety  procedures are also incorporated into the daily  schedule, like handwashing and re-applying sunscreen. 

What type of activities will campers  be participating in throughout the  day? 

Campers will have the opportunity to participate in daily and weekly activities such as: art projects, group  games, social free play, board games, science  experiments, writing prompts, yoga, crafts and water  play activities.   

Will there be camp evaluations?

We value your input and will send out an online survey to help us to evaluate our summer camp programs.   

What if it rains?

In the event that it does rain, SRSRC staff will make a decision based on the intensity of the weather. If the  decision is made that the rain does impact previously  made plans, staff will utilize other appropriate parts of  our facility or make alternative plans than what were  previously scheduled. For some camp activities, the  goal is to enjoy the water so a little rain may not  cause a change in plans.   

Pool Safety Will campers be able to use the pool  during camp? 

It is unknown whether or not camp groups will be able to utilize the pool during the summer due to  restrictions related to COVID-19. If permitted to do so,  and it is feasible to do so, parents will be contacted  that campers will have the opportunity to participate  in free swim during camp. 

Where do campers change into their  swimsuits? 

Campers change into their swimsuits in our locker rooms while on-site. The changing areas are okayed 


31 - SRSRC SUMMER CAMPS 2021 by staff and then monitored for safety (typically  auditorily) while campers are utilizing them. Campers  must be able to change in and out of swim attire  independently.   

option. You may also sign up your camper for additional swim lessons through our Aquatics  department, for which you may also register through  CampBrain.   

What if my camper does not want to swim or forgot his/her swimsuit? 

If a camper does not bring his/her swimsuit, they will not participate in swimming. If a camper does not  want to swim he/she may be provided an alternate  activity choice. During swim time, campers may also  have other options depending on the camp ranging  from games, art cart activities, playground time, or a  movie. Some of our activities besides swimming will  involve water and clothes may still get wet, so dress  your camper in clothes in which they can get messy.   

What if my camper can’t swim?

SRSRC lifeguarding and camp personnel perform a swim assessment to determine a camper’s swimming  abilities. This assessment consists of one pool length  (approximately 25 yards) across the pool in any style  the camper feels most comfortable. Those that pass  are allowed to swim in all areas of the pool, except for  the lap lanes. If a child passes, but staff notice the  child becomes fatigued or unable to swim with the  same strength as before, staff may have the child stay  in the shallow area.    Campers who choose not to take the swim  assessment, do not satisfactorily complete the swim  assessment, or become unable to swim safely,  receive an orange bracelet and remain in the  designated shallow areas.     We would encourage campers who need extra  instruction to participate in our swim lesson add-on 

How often do campers take the  swim assessment? 

Swim assessments are given on Mondays or on the first day that the camper chooses to swim for the  week. Campers may only take the swim assessment  once per week. We do not offer swim assessments at  other times, such as a pre-camp swim assessment.    A camper who does not pass the swim assessment  has the opportunity to take the swim assessment the  next week that they attend camp. This gives the  camper time to progress and work on becoming a  stronger swimmer before retaking the swim  assessment. Campers who pass the swim  assessment may still be asked to stay in the shallow  area at times depending on certain factors such as  fatigue.
