Lunch & Snacks

NUTRITION

We will be providing lunch and snacks every day. We will not be serving foods with any type of nuts. If you have indicated your child has specific food allergies, we will substitute. Please help us ensure your child's complete safety by not bringing food, chewing gum or cough candies.

ARRIVALS

Please make sure to sign in your child upon entering the church between 8:30 - 8:50 a.m. each day and to sign out your child when you pick them up at 4:00 p.m. Please do not bring electronic devices of any kind to the camp. They will be confiscated and returned at the end of the day.

DEPARTURES

If you need to pick up your child earlier than usual, please advise the staff in advance. When you (or another authorized person) pick up your child, please make sure that a staff member wearing a staff t-shirt acknowledges your departure and you sign out your child.

ABSENCES

If your child is not attending the camp due to illness, please advise the church office of the illness and the expected return date.

HEALTH

If a child appears to be ill, the child may be separated from the other children, and staff will notify the supervisor and parents immediately.

 

Obvious symptoms that indicate a child is ill are:

 

  • A fever over 38 degrees Celsius and low energy

  • Unexplained pain

  • Cold with fever, runny nose and eyes

  • Coughing

  • Sore throat, difficulty swallowing

  • Rash or red eyes

  • Headache, stiff neck

  • Stomach ache, severe diarrhea or vomiting, itchy body or scalp

  • Known or suspected contagious illness, e.g., chicken pox, mumps and measles

 

Parents/guardians are strongly encouraged to keep ill children at home to prevent the spread of illness at the camp. Children must have been free from symptoms for 24 hours before returning to the camp. Please ensure you have back-up plans to accommodate any such spontaneous child care needs.

 

ACCIDENTS AND EMERGENCIES

If your child is involved in a minor accident while in our care, our staff will immediately administer First Aid. We will inform you at pick-up time and you may be asked to sign an injury report. A child needing emergency medical care will be taken to Headwaters Hospital. You will be notified at once.

GIVING MEDICINE

Staff can give prescription and non-prescription medications to your child only with your written authorization. If your child is on such medication, you will be asked to complete and sign an authorization form at the camp and discuss with staff the timing and amounts of the medicine to be given. Medications must be in the original container with the prescription label intact.

OUTDOOR PLAY SAFETY

We will limit the amount of time the children spend outdoors between 11 a.m. and 3 p.m. because of the high ultra violet radiation (U.V.) ratings. For this reason we have planned most of the outdoor games in the mornings. You are asked to sign a personal agreement allowing us to apply sunscreen. You should provide your child with a sunscreen of your choice. Please make sure to write your child's name on the bottle. While outside we recommend that the children wear hats as additional protection.

WHAT TO BRING TO CAMP

  • Running shoes & socks (outdoor games)

  • Hat

  • Sunscreen (labeled with your child’s name)

  • Water bottle (labeled with your child’s name)

  • Oversized t-shirt to wear over their clothes during craft time

      (ages 4 - 10)

  • An extra set of clothing

  • Bathing suit & towel (labeled)

  • Personal Flotation Device (PFD) for swimming

  • Goggles, earplugs, or nose plugs if needed for swimming

  • Sweater (just in case … we do have air conditioning in the church)

IMPORTANT

Please send your child to camp

with their bathing suit already on under their clothes.

This saves us a lot of time!

 

Please make sure that all of

your child's items are
labeled with his/her name.

 

Please remove drawstrings
from clothing or tuck them
securely into coats/sweaters.

We look forward to meeting you and your children!
With great anticipation, The VBS Leadership Committee
