FOOD

  • Campers MUST bring a packed lunch each day, unless otherwise noted.
  • All campers must bring a water bottle labeled with their name.
  • An afternoon snack will be provided, and concession cards are available for purchase to use at the pool in the afternoon. Concession cards are $15 per card and can be purchased at the front desk, or by calling 513.821.5200.
  • Please note we are NOT a nut free facility.

SWIMMING

  • Each camper will be required to pass a water safety test prior to swimming in the pool. Children identified as non-swimmers on the “About My Child Information Sheet” will not be tested and will automatically receive a blue band.
  • The test is administered by the pool staff. It will determine what areas of the pool are safe for your child to swim in based on their swimming ability. Please advise the Camp Coordinator if you have any questions.
  • Once a camper has taken the swim test, they will receive a colored bracelet to wear when swimming.
    • Green: Permitted to swim everywhere.
    • Yellow: Can swim where they can stand/touch.
    • Pink: Must wear a life jacket.
  • Each camper should bring a swimsuit, towel, sunscreen, and goggles (if they would like) every day for swimming. Each item must be clearly marked with the name of the child. Each child must have their own bottle of sunscreen.
  • Please apply sunscreen before each camper is dropped off at camp. We will reapply sunscreen when we are going to the pool. Each camper 3rd grade and younger will have sunscreen applied by a counselor. Campers’ 4th grade and older will be permitted to apply their own sunscreen under the supervision of a counselor.

FIELD TRIPS

  • Field Trips will take place on Thursdays unless otherwise noted. All campers registered for camp on Thursday MUST attend the field trip.
  • Each camper is expected to wear the official camp shirt for all field trip days. Any camper attending without the required shirt may be charged for an additional shirt. Shirts will be handed out on the first field trip day.
  • Please check the field trip schedule for details and additional fees.

ILLNESS, MEDICATIONS, EMERGENCIES

  • Illness: Parents will be notified if their child exhibits signs of illness (fever, vomiting, diarrhea, etc.) and will need to be picked up from camp.  The camper will not be eligible to return to camp until they are 24 hours symptom free or have been released by a doctor. Parents will be notified of any presence or outbreak of illness.
  • Medications: A Summer Camp Coordinator will administer medication to children with a completed medication form. A prescription medication will not be administered if we do not have on file an “administration of medication” form from the doctor on record.  DO NOT send any medication to Summer Camp with your child. All medication must be delivered to the Coordinator on duty.
  • Emergencies: In the case of a medical emergency the staff is directed to call 911 IMMEDIATELY and then notify the parent. An incident report will be completed for any incident and a copy will be given to the parent. A staff member certified in CPR and First Aid is always on duty.

BEHAVIOR POLICY:  Absolutely no bullying will be tolerated.

  • Behavior: Students enrolled in the Summer Camp program are expected to follow rules of good behavior and treat one another with courtesy and respect. Discipline will be handled with kindness, consistency and understanding with the rules being made very clear with each camper. However, to assist counselors with inappropriate behavior, progressive discipline guidelines have been established. These procedures are to ensure the safety and welfare of all participating children and staff.
  • Our expectation is to assist children in making appropriate choices, but, when necessary, the following steps will be taken: 
    • (Level 1) Verbal correction or warning.
    • (Level 2) Removal from current activity and a verbal notification to parent that this is a Level 2 behavior problem.
    • (Level 3) Meeting with Camp Coordinator, and discipline form given to the parent. 
    • (Level 4) Meeting with Camp Director, discussion with the parent, child will be excluded from the program for one day, and a discipline form will be given to the parent.
    • (Level 5) Removal from the program.

MISCELLANEOUS

  • It is our desire to have a 10:1 ratio for campers to counselors. All campers will need to be signed in and out each day by an adult. Only those listed on the Camper’s Information Sheet will be permitted to pick up a child. Campers are not permitted to walk home by themselves. Should an emergency arise where someone other than those listed on the form need to pick up a camper, the parent will need to call the front desk at 513.821.5200 with the necessary information.
  • Dress: Most of our activities are held outside. Please be sure your child is dressed weather-appropriate each day. Tennis shoes are recommended for daily wear, but flip flops or sandals may be worn, unless otherwise noted. Please put your child’s name on every item they bring to camp, including their water bottle.
  • Personal Items: Electronic devices will only be permitted until 9:00 AM or after 4:00 PM during the Summer Camp day. Anyone bringing such items to camp do so at their own risk. The Summer Camp staff will not be responsible for the safety of these items.
  • Money: The Summer Camp staff is not responsible for money kept by campers. The staff cannot be held responsible if your child decides to “share” with other children.
  • Parent Concerns: Parent comments, concerns, suggestions (both positive and constructive) are welcome at any time. Please contact Recreation Director, Rachel Leininger by email at rleininger@wyomingohio.gov or by calling 513­-842-1359 (office) or 859-314-7357 (cell).

COVID-19 can lead to severe illness, personal injury, permanent disability, and death. Participating in summer camp could increase the risk of contracting COVID-19. The City in no way warrants that COVID-19 infection will not occur through participation in summer camp programs or utilizing City facilities. I understand that the City, the Wyoming Recreation Commission (“WRC”) and other professional recreation organizations associated with the City or summer camp will not be liable for an injury sustained by Child Participant, and are not responsible for any medical expenses incurred growing out of Child Participant’s participation in summer camp.

In consideration of the Child Participant being permitted to participate in summer camp, utilize the facilities, and otherwise receive services associated with summer camp from the City, the WRC and other professional recreation organizations associated with the City (the “Releasees”), I _________________________, as parent/guardian of the Child Participant, on behalf of myself, the Child Participant, my and their heirs, representatives, executors, administrators, and assigns, hereby release, waive, discharge and covenant not to sue, the Releasees, their elected and appointed officials, officers, employees, volunteers and agents from all causes of action, claims, or demands of any nature whatsoever on account of personal injury, property damage, death or accident of any kind, arising out of Child Participant’s participation in summer camp or use of the City’s facilities, whether the participation is supervised or unsupervised, however the injury or damage occurs, including, but not limited to, the negligence of the Releasees. 

I represent that the Child Participant has been recently examined by a medical doctor and been found able to participate in summer camp without limitations.

PERMISSION TO PROVIDE NECESSARY TREATMENT OR EMERGENCY CARE:

I hereby give permission to the medical personnel selected by the City of Wyoming to provide transportation and obtain medical care for my child. In the event neither my emergency contact nor I can be contacted, I hereby give permission to obtain treatment, including hospitalization for my child.

TRANSPORTATION

In consideration of the acceptance of my permission slip, I or myself, my executors, administrators and heirs, do hereby release and discharge the City of Wyoming, all employees, and individuals assisting volunteers from all claims of damages, demands, liabilities, and causes of action whatsoever, growing out of my child’s participation. I have full knowledge of the risks involved and I assume those risks, and I will assume and pay for any medical expenses and emergencies in the event of an accident or other incapacity regardless of whether I have authorized such expense.

RECEIPT OF PARENT HANDBOOK

I am in receipt of the Wyoming Summer Camp handbook and have read it completely with my child(ren). I understand the rules and guidelines for the program and agree to abide by them.
