Water Activities We will play in the water feature or the giant slip-and-slide at Kenton Park on regular basis. If you want, you can pack extra clothes or a towel with your child. If they don’t have a change of clothes or a towel they can still get wet as long as you’re ok with that. If you don’t want your child playing in the water, please let them and us know. Otherwise, we’ll assume it’s ok. What Your Child Should Leave at Home Valuables Electronics Pop Candy and other junk food Money Toys Game cards (Pokemon, Yu-Gi-Oh, etc) Camp Attire Campers should wear comfortable and inexpensive clothes. Please keep in mind that campers will get dirty, messy, and wet everyday. For safety reasons, we highly recommend that your child wear shoes that can be worn in water like Crocs or sports sandals. Pick Up and Drop Off Drop off should occur between 9:00-9:30 daily. After 9:30 we might be off-site so please be on time. Pick up is between 2:30-3:00 everyday. Camp Standards and Behavior Policy Kenton Community Arts Program reserves the right to dismiss a camper whose behavior is deemed inappropriate. In which case no refunds will be given. Accidents and Emergencies Minor injuries are not uncommon in camp. Should anything happen throughout the camp day, staff will care for minor injuries with ice, soap, water, and Band-Aids. Should there be an emergency, we will make every effort to contact parents/guardians or emergency contacts after appropriate measures are taken. Medication On the first day of each week or session it is the parent’s responsibility to deliver all medications and written instructions from a doctor. Medications may not be stored in camper’s possession at any time. The only exception is for a camper who requires the immediate use of an inhaler for a medical condition. In this case, written permission needs to be on file in the camp office. All medications, including over the counter health items, must be in their original packaging. Insurance Kenton Community Arts Program does not provide accident or health insurance for campers. It is the parent’s responsibility to take care of all fees and charges related to health care.
