Illness: Lower Southampton Township cannot provide care for sick children. Please do not send your child to camp if s/he feels ill. We ask that you keep your child home if the following symptoms occur:
- COVID symptoms
- Fever within 24 hours
- Vomiting, Diarrhea
- Contagious or Unidentifiable Rashes
- Congestion with Sneezing, Nasal Drainage and Coughing
- Ear, Eye, Throat Infections-Unless on Antibiotics for 24 hours
- Nits and/or Head Lice
We are concerned about the health and welfare of each child. In the event that s/he becomes ill or injured, you will be contacted immediately and required to pick up your child as soon as possible. Please be sure information on the Emergency Form is completed, accurate, and up to date. It is not necessary to notify camp directors of your child’s absence unless s/he will be out 3 days or more.
Safety: Please have photo ID ready when picking up children. If someone other than the pickup names you’ve provided is picking up your child, you must alert the camp director.
Policy on Behavior: Please refer to registration packet discipline policy for additional information
Drop Off/Pick Up Policies: We have scheduled drop off between 8am and 9am. If dropping off after 9am, please make sure your child gets to their assigned group wherever it is located at the camp facility. Pick up is scheduled between 4pm and 5:00 PM. If you’d like to pick up your child earlier than 4:00 PM, please notify their counselor so s/he can be ready at the appropriate time. Late pick up incurs a $20 fee for each 15 minute period after 5:00 PM; this fee should be paid directly to the counselor waiting with your child.
What to wear to camp: Comfortable lightweight clothing with a bathing suit or clothes that can get wet underneath, sunscreen, and closed-toe shoes daily. Sunscreen must be applied before arriving to camp (reapplication is scheduled at regular intervals throughout the day). All items should be labeled with your child’s name. Be sure to submit the sunscreen permission slip with your registration packet so your child is protected from the sun. Please be sure the sunscreen has been tested on your child at home several times before using it for camp.
Lunch/Snack: Campers will need to bring snacks, lunch (no refrigeration provided), and water bottles. We encourage campers not to share their food with other campers due to food allergies. It is also important to bring enough water daily and to avoid bringing soda or juice, which attract bees and insects. *Ice Packs and freezer bags are suggested for keeping lunches cold*
Personal Items: All personal items must be labeled with your child’s name on it and kept in his/her bag. Lower Southampton Township will not be responsible for lost, damaged or stolen items. It is best to keep electronics, toys, and other valuable items at home.
Lost and Found: All items found on the playground or in the building are placed outside the office where they are stored. Eyeglasses, lost money, or jewelry is given to the camp director. Please have your child check the lost and found containers if s/he has lost anything. You are required to put your child’s name on lunch boxes, jackets, and personal items etc. to avoid confusion. At the end of each week of camp, a considerable amount of good clothing, towels, and lunch boxes have accumulated.
Food allergies: We must do all we can to provide our campers with a safe environment. In an effort to allow all campers to participate fully in all camp activities, we ask that you do not send in any food for snacks or meals that may contain seafood, peanuts, or peanut oil, but if you do, please label the outside of the container as containing seafood or peanuts. We will reserve allergy-free areas when campers eat lunch. Children without allergies may sit with friends only if they do not have any items in their lunch that contains seafood, peanuts, or peanut oil.
Activities/Theme Weeks: Activities include field trips, arts and crafts, special guests, sports and so much more! Theme weeks this year are:
Sports Week Nature Week
Holiday Week Salute to Service Week
Super Heroes Welcome to Summer Week
Trips: All campers will receive a camp t-shirt that must be worn on field trips.
Frequently asked questions (FAQ's)
What does my child do all day?
The schedule will rotate daily. We also distribute bulletins at the end of every week to keep campers and their parents aware of upcoming events and any announcements, as well as, post weekly on Facebook. Children will enjoy games, crafts, parties, and more with their friends.
What about days with inclement weather?
Our camp has access to indoor/covered facility to keep campers safe and out of rain or extreme heat. On indoor days, we often watch a G-rated movie. We also play indoor activities like board/card games and arts & crafts.
Do you provide before or after care?
Unfortunately not. Our earliest drop off is 8am and our latest pickup is 5:00 PM. There is a fee charged for late pickups.
Who is in charge of my child?
We keep all our camper-to-counselor ratios below 10:1. Depending on the age range, it may be as low as 5:1. A large portion of our counselors are high school upperclassmen or college students. Our camp has a director, who is often a teacher or involved in education. We appoint our most experienced counselors as head counselors, who are in charge of coordinating the junior counselors and keeping the counselors on schedule.
How are your counselors trained and screened?
All of our counselors are CPR/AED/First Aid certified. They also complete state police background checks and federal child abuse clearances each year. Before the camp season begins, our counselors attend an orientation that covers mandated reporting, bullying awareness and management, and child safety.
How can I get in contact with a counselor in case of emergency?
The camp director has a cell phone that is on their person at all times during camp hours. These phone numbers are distributed at the beginning of the camp season. In addition, we have the central office contact and the Parks and Recreation director.
Are the field trips included in the regular fee?
Yes, they are! Our camp will go on at least 7 field trips over the course of the summer. On field trip days, we provide transportation from camp to the trip and back again.
