Ackermann’s Camp Questions
It’s the first day- what exactly happens?
Children will be greeted at their cars. There will be counselors to check-in your camper(s). Taking temperatures and sanitizing their hands and collecting release papers. Their “Yellow Conformation Card Will Be Attached” to their basket that they will use the whole session to keep their belongings in. If your child has any information that the counselors need to be alerted about (allergies, special needs, etc.), please send a note with details. Staff will direct your Children on where to go and what to do.
Their yellow card will be attached at check in to their baskets.
Also mark towels, lunch & snack with their first name and last initial.This will help keep their belongings together & prevent them from going home with other campers.
PARKING • No parking needed. Just get in line facing Manchester
TRAFFIC • Please do NOT ENTER Curran Ave. from Manchester Road.
• Please do NOT MAKE LEFT HAND TURNS onto Manchester Road.
SUN SCREEN • In order to maintain social distancing will not be able to physically apply sunscreen to any camper, but we will supervise them when they reapplied after first swim.
MY CHILD is going home with somebody different than myself.
Please send a note with your camper to give to the staff. Also, please make sure your child knows who they are going home with that afternoon to avoid any confusion.
LUNCH & ALLERGIES • How long does my child have to eat lunch?
After the first time your child swims, they have an hour break before getting in the pool again. After they eat, they can use this time to play on the playground.
WHAT TO PACK FOR LUNCH • Please pack an ice pack in their lunch boxes. We recommend not packing yogurts or make it yourself pizza, because they get everywhere & also can go bad quickly if not on ice.
MY CHILD HAS ALLERGIES • FOOD Your child can sit on the allergy blanket at lunch, as long as their friend or sibling packs a lunch that is safe for your child to be around, they can sit with the camper. The allergy blanket is located under the covered play area. There is always a counselor sitting with the children on the allergy blanket.
WHAT TO WEAR TO CAMP • Send your child in their swimsuit, NO clothes. Send back-up suit for children prone to bathroom accidents. If it is a cool day send send them in something warm over their suite.
Lost & Found • My child lost something at camp what do I do?
Send a note so the teachers can look for it the next day. Counselors leave by 2:20 everyday, so please do not come back to camp looking for something. If there is a first name and last initial on the item, it will be put in their basket for them to take home. If there is no name, it will be placed in our lost & found which is spread out every morning at the gate. Your child will pass the lost & found each morning & a counselor will be there to encourage them to check it out. Put first name & last initial on EVERYTHING
Is there a Visiting Day • We are hoping to have a visiting day the last Friday of each session this year! It all depends on Covid 19 protocol. If not it will be a normal camp day. Visiting day is not a normal camp day, it is for family and friends to watch what their children have learned between 9:00 am to 1:00 pm.
