limited exposure. If your child does have a food allergy please make sure that you
include that on your registration form so we can make our counselors aware of any
special care needed.

❏ Come to camp in comfortable play clothes

Important Information and Policies

General Camp Information

● Splash camp is intended for children 6-10 years.
● We are not a nut-free facility or program.
● We no longer have purchasable lunch service
● Any medication that your child needs must be presented at Day 1 morning check-in.
Children must be able to administer medications themselves (in other words; we can’t
administer shots. We can open a medicine bottle, but the child must be able to drink a
liquid or swallow a capsule on their own) Please review with Sue or Kana any
instructions. In most cases medication will be kept in Karen & Kana’s office. Please also
let us know if your child needs assistance and/or reminding to take medication.

Drop-Off and Pick-Up

● Children should be dropped off between 8:00 and 8:15am.
● Full day campers must be picked up by 4:00pm. Pre-registered Aftercare children must
be picked up by 5pm. Each child must be checked out by an authorized parent or
guardian..
● A child will not be released to anyone without written consent from a parent or guardian.
If someone tries to pick up your child without written consent, you will be contacted
immediately.
Aftercare
● For staffing reasons, we can only accept pre-registered children into aftercare (until
5pm)

Illness

● If your child is sick and contagious, please do not send him/her to camp. ● Children with
a fever over 100 will be sent home right away and must remain home until they have been
fever-free for 72 hours with no medication.
● Any child who is experiencing vomiting, severe nausea, diarrhea, and/or other similar
symptoms, will be sent home and must remain home until symptoms have not returned
in 24 hours with no medication.
● No refunds will be given for days missed due to illness.

Lost/Misplaced Items

● The Upper Upper Valley Aquatic Center is not responsible for any lost, misplaced and/or
broken items. It is strongly recommended that all valuable items are left home. Please
do not bring any electronic items such as handheld gaming devices, cellphones, i-pods,
etc.
● Please check our Splash Camp lost and found daily! After Friday remaining items go
into our general lost and found.

Behavior Policy

In order to provide the highest level of safety and as much fun as possible for each individual
camper, we expect children to be respectful to the counselors and to each other. We would ask
you to instruct your child to communicate with the counselors challenges or concerns they are
having with another camper. We like to work with the children in real time to help solve conflicts.
If there are difficult issues we can’t remedy we will call the parent or guardian to be included in
a plan for remedy.

If jointly, we really can’t solve the problems and the behavior continues to be problematic, the
camper will be removed for the remainder of the session and subsequent sessions he/she is
signed up for. The parent/guardian will be called to pick up the child immediately. No refund will
be given for the current session the child is enrolled in.

Swim Lesson Placement

In the morning children will participate in a swim lesson based on his/her abilities. If we are not
sure of their placement, we will offer a quick assessment on Monday morning just prior to
lessons. This test benefits the child so he/she does not struggle during a lesson nor is placed in
a class that is not challenging enough.

Swim Test for Competition Pool

For afternoon swimming in our competition pool we require a life jacket or floatie to be worn by
children in Levels 1, 2, 3 and 4. Although a swim test is available by lifeguard for a child in Level
3 or 4 who wishes not to wear a flotation device. Swim Test Includes: 3 fully submerged bobs
without holding the side of the pool. 25 yard swim without holding the side of the pool or lane
lines. 30 seconds of treading water. Roll over to a sustained backfloat.

Welcome Desk staff will take the message to the appropriate staff member.
