FACILITY HOURS:

MON–FRI: 5AM–9PM  |  SAT: 6AM–7PM
SUN: 1–6PM

Camp runs from 9 am - 5 pm. Early drop-off is 8:00 - 8:30 am and late pick-up is 5 - 6 pm. Families needing this service will be required to pay $5 each day or they can pay $25 for the whole week. 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 Camp Director in the case of unexpected absence or schedule changes is required. Consistent late pick-up may be penalized with fee.

A Sign-Out Waiver Form is available only for member 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 Camp Kroc staff and standard Kroc Center membership policies apply.

Full payment is expected at the time of enrollment. No cash or credit card refunds are issued. Questions about the policy, please call the Camp Director. 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 current 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 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 at the beginning 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 swimming activities. Campers must be able and capable of changing from their clothes into their swimsuit and from their swimsuit 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 swimming portion of the Camp Kroc program.

Any Camp Kroc visitors for 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 Center front desk.

Please include all pertinent medical information and/or allergies on the registration form. If your 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

Your child’s safety is our number one priority. 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.

  • All Camp Kroc 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 with camp staff at all times. Parental emergency contact information will remain with 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 Director.
