We will swim outside daily from 10 AM – 11 AM. We ask that you bring your child in their swimsuit every day, with clothes over the top. After they swim, they will change from their swimsuit to their normal clothes. This allows us to spend less time in the locker rooms changing, and more time enjoying the pool. Please make sure to pack a full set of clothing to change into after swimming.

Each student is required to have sunscreen at summer camp every day. Students are not allowed to share sunscreen. Please place a bottle or can of sunscreen in your student’s cubby with their name on the first day of camp. We will let you know when/if they are running out.

Field Trips
Field trips are scheduled throughout the summer. Tuesdays the Pollywogs and Tadpole classrooms are scheduled for field trips. The Frogs and Dolphins will go on Thursdays. Field Trips are subject to change. The field trip Schedule will be released later, as it is too early to book them.

All children are expected to participate in ALL activities. Please keep your child home if they are not up to participating in all scheduled activities. If your child’s class is scheduled for a field trip and your child is not participating, we will be unable to care for him/her at camp that day. All extra staff will be on the field trip.

All children will participate in activities that require running, or other gross motor skills. It is important that the children are dressed appropriately and comfortably. Closed toed shoes are required! If a child is wearing sandals or flip flops, they will be asked to sit out of the activity. If dresses or skirts are worn, we ask you to wear shorts underneath.
