Swimming is one of our most popular activities at camp and the systems we have in place make it one of the safest as well. On the first trip to a pool, staff work with the pool’s lifeguard staff to evaluate each camper’s swim level. Campers are asked to swim the entire length of the pool and do their best to avoid touching either the bottom or side. Campers are either given a green wristband, which allows them to swim in any area of the pool, or a red wristband, which allows them to swim only in the shallow areas of the pool, based upon the lifeguard and Camp staff assessment of the camper’s swimming abilities. Campers may ask to be re-evaluated at any time. Staff remain out of the water to monitor campers at all times. In case of inclement weather while at the pool all staff members phones are equipped with emergency alert system message capabilities that will be on at all times. In the event inclement weather warnings happen campers and staff will immediately seek shelter.
All of our staff is certified in CPR and First Aid, and concussion certified. In the event that a sickness or injury prevents your child from returning to normal camp activities, we will notify you by the provided phone numbers in your campers emergency contact information.
All campers and staff must adhere to Maryland safety seat and seat belt laws. To include wearing your seat belt at all times. Maryland's child safety seat law requires that all children under 8 years old be secured in a federally approved child safety seat according to the safety seat and vehicle manufacturers' instructions, unless the child is 4 feet, 9 inches or taller. The child restraint must be right for the child's size, age, and weight, safety seats must be provided. All of our vehicles are insured according to State of Maryland insurance requirements and all drivers are 21 years or older with a current Maryland driver’s license. Vehicles maximum capacity is determined by the number of seatbelts and seats. Staff members will carry a cell phone on them at all times for emergency communication purposes only, cell phones will NOT be used while operating the vehicle. Each week our Kids Camps will take field trips that require transportation to a local attraction as well as to the pool, local movie theatres, Frederick County parks, and other fun attractions.
Campers should always pack a bag with a water bottle, lunch, snacks, leo or yoga type clothing for gymnastics, a bathing suit, towel, and a change of clothes. If your child brings any electronic devices we ask that they only use it before and after camp times and that it remains in their bag during camp.
