SUMMER 2019 DRAGON & MINI DRAGONÂ DAY CAMPS
ABOUT OUR PROGRAMS Summer 2019 is quickly approaching, and St. Richard’s Dragon and Mini Dragon Day Camps are undoubtedly going to be spectacular! Campers new and old won’t want to miss out on classic favorites and some new and exciting camp offerings. The general summer camp curriculum is composed of weekly themes, specially designed field trips, games, crafts, and academic enrichment activities designed specifically with each child’s age group in mind. Campers in general camps also receive swim lessons and time for pool fun two times a week. In addition to general camps, specialty camps include Robotics in the Real World, Harry Pottery Camp, Sensory Science Camp and more! The mission of St. Richard’s, an independent Episcopal day school, is to instill knowledge and values for a lifetime through the implementation of our Five Pillars for Success: Faith, Classic Curriculum, Leadership, Civic Responsibility, and Global Readiness. Located at 33rd and Meridian Streets, just north of downtown Indianapolis, SRES offers unique partnerships throughout the city that bring learning to life, a rigorous academic curriculum, three world languages, public speaking and leadership opportunities, a strong fine arts program and organized athletics for continued lifetime success.
UNIQUE PARTNERSHIPS The central location of St. Richard's allows the school and camp to have unique partnerships and deliver outstanding programming year round. Campers participate in field experiences throughout the city and in nearby parks such as 100 Acres, Holliday Park, Eagle Creek Park and more. See the camp descriptions for designated field trips each week. The Childrenâ€™s Museum of Indianapolis, only three blocks south of SRES, is a convenient and popular resource for all grades. We also partner with The Riviera Club, home to SRES campers swimming lessons, age 4 and up. Their team of aquatic instructors work with the campers to help develop strong, confident swimmers. Additionally, there is time to explore the outdoor water playground with five pools and 1.2 million gallons of water.

NEED TO KNOW ITEMS NEEDED (AND NOT NEEDED) FOR CAMP Students should pack a lunch and a water bottle for camp each day. SRES encourages packing a healthy lunch to ensure energy for the duration of the day. Candy and soda are not allowed. Please note the school and several of the field trip locations are peanut-free; therefore, SRES kindly asks that campers always follow this rule. Students should label all items and will need closed-toe shoes, shoes for the pool if attending a general camp session (and some specialty classes; see brochure description), a towel, swimsuit, goggles, and sunscreen. Students may also choose to pack an extra pair of clothing. SRES strongly discourages students from bringing electronic devices to camp; this is prohibited for rising JK-Grade 4 students. Rising Grade 5-8 students are only permitted to use their devices for purposes of communicating with parents/guardians for transportation. SRES is not liable for lost or damaged devices. DROP-OFF & PICK-UP TIMES & LOCATION Camp drop-off is from 7:30-9:00 a.m. through the alley accessed from 32nd Street between Pennsylvania and Meridian Streets (not through the main entrance off of 33rd Street); pick-up is available from the same location from 4:30-4:45 p.m. Parents may drop their campers at the green awning (and sign in from their cars) or park and walk their camper to the registration table. Families arriving before 9 a.m. or after 4:30 p.m. should register for before and aftercare.

All campers picked up outside of regular drop-off and pick-up hours will require the parent(s) to enter through the main entrance off of 33rd and Meridian Streets. Parents/guardians are required to sign in and out their campers at the start and end of day and will need to show proper photo identification as requested. HEALTH & WELLNESS Any student who needs to take medication during the day must have a parent bring the medication in original container, along with the medication request, to the camp director. No child is permitted to keep and take medication on his/her own; appropriate health forms must be completed to indicate the need for the medication. Whenever possible, the camp would prefer all medication be taken at home.
NEED TO KNOW IN-CAMP ACCIDENT OR ILLNESS If a child has a fever of 100˚F, vomits or feels ill, parents will be called to pick up their child from camp. Children should be picked up from school within one hour of parent notification. When there is a serious injury or acute illness, the camp will attempt to contact parents or the emergency contact number(s) listed by the parent. Otherwise, paramedics will be summoned to stabilize and transport the child to an emergency room. Continued efforts will be made to contact the parents or the designated contact in the event they are not immediately available. RETURN TO CAMP AFTER ILLNESS Before a child returns to camp following an illness, he or she should no longer be infectious to other children as determined by the child’s physician. Children may not return to camp until they have been fever-free (below 100˚) for 24 hours without medication. In addition, children must not have had diarrhea or vomiting for 24 hours before returning to camp, without medication. If a child returns to camp and continues to visit the health care provider for a particular illness, the child will need to return home until the illness subsides. CAMP QUESTIONS?
