AFTER SCHOOL CAMP MANUAL 2020

WHAT TO EXPECT:

• Each child will have their own table and chair.

• On Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays Camp will begin at 2:00 pm and end at 5:30 pm (Drop off begins at 1:30 pm). On Wednesdays, camp will begin at 8:00 am and end at 5:30 pm (Drop off begins at 7:30 am).

• Drop off and pick up location will be at the Dining Hall, located at the end of the main road. • Let us know if and when you may arrive late or leave early.

• The daily schedule will be distributed to parents and students at the beginning of the week.

• Dress your child appropriately for the weather (layers). We will keep windows open to promote air flow in buildings, and as you know, the temperature and forecast can shift dramatically in our area.

• The day will be divided into study and recreation periods. Campers will have time to complete any homework before engaging in outdoor activities and 11play.

• We will provide your child with an afternoon snack every day of the week and breakfast and lunch on Wednesday.

• Just like summer camp or school, we discourage parents/guardians to “drop in” because it may cause children to feel homesick. We are hoping to make this environment close to a classroom experience.

• Let Crosby Palmer know about any medications your child may require.

• Let your Camp Counselor know of any dietary restrictions or special needs your child may have.

• We will make efforts to assist your child’s study habits and education, but we are not their teachers nor their disciplinarians. Their success will depend on all of us working together.
