Important Information

Medical/Emergency

All Medical/Emergency information will be managed through the Camp Doc System. You will be asked to register or update your current information prior to the beginning of camp. For your child's safety and protection, this information must be entered prior to the start date of your child's camp. We will need this information to contact you in case your child experiences an accident or illness. Information concerning the use of the system will be mailed to you with your confirmation letter.

Emergency

If an emergency occurs, and you need to notify your child, please call the Office of Continuing Education at 215-968-8409 or 215-968-8016.  We will contact your child. We  discourage the use of cell phones during our camp day as it is disruptive to the camp program.

Lateness

If your child arrives after the camp start time, please bring him/her to the Early Learning Center (ELC) and SIGN IN.  A staff member will bring your child to the specific camp.

Early Pick-Up

If you need to pick-up your child early from camp, please fill out the Kids on Campus early dismissal form, and give it to your camp instructor.  Your child will be brought to the Early Learning Center ( ELC) where you can meet him/her, and SIGN OUT with identification. (This form may be duplicated as needed.)

Food Service

A lunch program is available to campers through Culinart, the college food service provider. Lunch bracelets will be sold on Monday morning of each week at the drop off tent.

There will be no advanced lunch tickets sold. Campers also have the option of bringing lunch. Cold beverages are also available for purchase.

Pool Use

Students registered for sports camps should bring a bathing suit and towel for pool activity.  A lock for a locker is suggested, but not mandatory.

Inclement Weather

Outdoor activities will be held indoors during inclement weather.

Extended Hours

In order to provide for your child’s safety, the College does not permit any child on campus without proper supervision.  If you find it necessary to drop off your child early, or pick up your child after camp hours, you must register him/her in the BUCKS Extended Hours Program.  Supervised activities will be provided and arrangements to register may be made on a weekly basis throughout the summer.  Call the Tri-Hampton YMCA at 215-579-6200 for details.
