What You Need To Know About Camps


Camper and Instructor of the Week!

Each week one camper and one instructor will be chosen as camper and instructor of the week by their peers.  These campers and instructors will be chosen based on their positive attitude, team spirit, willingness to participate and establishing themselves as a good role model!

What to Bring

Be prepared. Bring indoor and outdoor shoes and clothes.  Bring sunscreen, sunglasses and a hat.  Bring a water bottle as well as snacks and a lunch.  If you are in a camp that will be in the pool, bring a towel and swimming attire.  Remember that it is a NUT FREE environment.  

Drop Off and Pick Up

Starting in 2018 The Drop off time is between 8:30am and 9:00am and the pick up time is between 4:00pm and 4:30pm.  The drop off and pick up location is the same at the TRU Old Gym.  

Camper Sign In/Out

There will be regular sign ins and outs everyday based out of the Gym Mezzanine.  I.D.  will be requested upon pick-up.  For a child to sign themselves out, the office must be informed in person by the parent/guardian who dropped off the child. The camper must let instructor know they are leaving each time.

Info for the Campers and Parents

Please familiarize yourself with the following protocols so everyone can have a fun and safe summer!  Any questions regarding protocols should be brought to the Camp supervisors.

Each camp, as well as who is instructing, will be displayed on the front of each table. Each camper must be signed in by their parent/guardian.  Following sign-in, campers may go have free playtime in the gym.  At 8:55 (or 12:55), all kids come up from the gym and go to their table. At that, time instructors will go over expectations for the week.  Please read and familiarize yourself and the campers with them prior to the start of camp so everyone can have a smooth, fun week.

Expectations:

  •          No swearing/fighting/bullying
  •          Stay with your group
  •          Keep your table/area where you played clean
  •          Tell the instructor when you need to leave (water, bathroom)
  •          Lunch and snack not over until all garbage is picked up and bags are organized - Sitting while eating, eat behind          the last table
  •          Don’t abuse equipment
  •          No phones, bottle flipping, toys stay in bags during camp hours
  •          Money stays put away
  •          On Friday’s water guns remain empty and in bag until we arrive at the water fight area

 

For lunch, campers get approximately 20 minutes to eat, they must be seated while eating and behind the last table. Once all campers’ garbage is properly disposed of, and their lunch kits and bags are re-organized, they are able to play in the gym.  Every day there will be an organized game taking place in half the gym as well as an option for free play over the lunch hour. Each camp will also have a snack break (about 15min), for full day campers this means they will need enough food for three breaks.
