Day Camp Policies

Campers must be dropped off between 8:30-9am and picked up by 5pm. Adults authorized to pick-up children (including parents) will be required to show identification at pick-up. A Sign-Out Waiver Form is available for children age 8 and up, and must be completed by both parent and child for a camper to be allowed to sign him/herself in and out of Camp Kroc. When a child is given the authority to sign him/herself out, he/she is no longer in the care of The Kroc Center Camp staff and standard Kroc Center membership policies apply. 24-hour notification is needed for late drop-off or early pick-up if the event has been pre-planned. A phone call to the Education & Arts Manager in the case of unexpected absence or schedule changes is required. Consistent late pick-up may be penalized with fee.

Full payment is expected at the time of enrollment. No cash refunds are given unless the program is canceled by The Kroc Center. If the program is canceled by The Kroc Center, you will be given the choice of a full credit or a cash refund. If you request to cancel your class enrollment five or more days prior to the first class, you will receive a full credit on a Kroc Center gift card minus a $25 processing fee or you may choose to transfer to another session if available. Requests made less than five days prior to the start date are not eligible for a refund or credit, except in the case of personal emergencies. No credits or pro-rated credits will be issued for missed days of camp or class due to illness, partial attendance, behavior issues, or any other reason.

Each camper must have a parent or guardian sign a camp waiver and supply correct and updated medical information in regards to their child(ren). Waiver(s) must be completed and signed prior to camp participation, preferably at time of registration.

As a parent, if your child has any special medical needs, please include these with the desired response on the Registration Form. These will include, but are not limited to, any medical or behavioral diagnoses that may affect your child’s experience at camp. Updates can be made throughout the summer based on a case-by-case basis and will be reported directly to camp coordinators. By providing this information, you are providing our staff with the knowledge and ability to provide the best care possible for your child. Please note that there will be no nurse/doctor on-call at The Kroc Center.

Swim tests to determine ability (for safety purposes) will be conducted on the first day of camp by our Aquatics Staff. Once ability is established, children will be allowed to participate in designated areas. Appropriate swim attire is required. Counselors will assist children at all times while in the pool and both areas will be fully staffed with trained, certified lifeguards. Children must be at least 48” tall in order to have safe access to the large water slide.

As deemed by The Salvation Army, and as part of our Safe From Harm protocol, we will be unable to assist campers in the changing of their clothes during pool and swim activities. The campers must be able and capable of changing from their clothes into their swim suit and from their swim suit back into their clothes. If this is not possible and a parent/guardian is unavailable to assist, the child will have to observe from the pool deck during the swim portion of the Day Camp program.

Any day camp visitors for all children and staff will be required to sign-in, and will be given a name tag to identify the individual as a visitor of Camp Kroc.

Lost & found items will be kept for a period of two weeks after a session, then donated to the local Salvation Army Thrift Store. Lost & found is located at The Kroc front desk.

Please include all pertinent medical information and/or allergies on the registration form. If you child needs medications administered during the Day Camp, please be aware that The Salvation Army Kroc Center is not authorized to disburse medication and you will need to make other arrangements in order for your child to receive his/her medication(s). Kroc Center staff will not dispense any non-prescription or prescription medications.

Camp Kroc is not designed or equipped to handle ill children. If your camper becomes ill while at Camp Kroc, our staff will make your child comfortable in an area away from the other campers. Our staff will then contact you (the parent) or one of the individuals you have authorized to pick up your child. If immediate medical attention is needed or if the severity of an injury cannot be correctly established, parents will be notified immediately. The Emergency Medical System (911) will be activated at the discretion of Camp Coordinators and/or Camp Counselors. If staff are unable to reach parents whose child is in need of immediate medical attention, he/she will be transported to the nearest hospital via ambulance and staff will continue to attempt to contact parents. Parents/guardians will be responsible for all emergency medical care expenses.

Staff & Safety

It takes a special person to be a counselor for our campers, your kids. Camp Kroc Counselors have to be energetic, enthusiastic, fun—but also trained to respond quickly and efficiently in any situation. Your child’s safety is our number one priority.

• All staff members will receive CPR/First Aid training and will be trained for emergency procedures.

• Kroc Center Summer Day Camp ensures sufficient staff-to-camper ratios. Camp groups generally range from 15-32 campers per group. Staff to camper ratios range from 1:6 to 1:10 (depending upon the ages within the camp group). A minimum of two staff are always present, regardless of the number of campers.

• When taking a field trip, a certified counselor with The Salvation Army Decisive Driving Certification will drive.

• Camp Kroc Staff will be equipped with communication radios and first aid kits, as well as all emergency information needed for each participant.

• Kroc lifeguards will be present during all swim sessions that take place at The Kroc Center.

• A first aid kit and a list of medications and allergies will be on camp staff at all times. Parental emergency contact information will remain on staff no matter the activity, and cell phones will be allotted to multiple staff members for emergency purposes and to remain in contact with the Camp Manager.
