SUMMER CAMP –FAQs
Should my child bring a lunch or snack?
The only camps that will be “breaking” for lunch are the baseball camps running from 9:00am until 2:00pm. Lunch break will be around 11:30am. Campers may bring a lunch or purchase one for $5.00. Please label all items your child brings with them. No glass containers or anything that needs to be refrigerated or heated up.
All camps running from 9:00am-12:00 noon- Please send your child with a healthy snack each day and a water bottle. Campers will break for snack at 10:30 a.m. No lunch will be provided.
What is served for lunch?
The kitchen will cook 1 menu item per day. This is typically pizza, chicken fingers, a hot dog, or a hamburger, all served with French fries and a lemonade. Sorry, there are no substitutions or special orders. Lunches can be prepaid for the week or pay per day in the morning at time of drop off.
Is there early drop off and late pick up?
NO, drop off begins 15 minutes before the start of class and campers must be picked up at the end of the camp. Checkout is at 12 noon. Please be on time to pick up campers.
Is there after care?
Unfortunately due to the lack of participation in the afternoon camps and after care programs, we have decided to eliminate the afternoon camps this year.
What is needed to pick up and drop off my child each day?
All children must be accompanied by a parent, and parents are asked to sign their child in every day. Please be advised, children will not be allowed to leave camp unless signed out by a parent or guardian. This is done for the safety of your child. Children will not be released unless proper check out procedures are followed. Parents must inform the counselor if anyone else will be picking the child up. A signature is required in order for the child to be released to another adult. Anyone picking up a child must be present at the time of check-in and sign him/her out.
What should my child wear?
Spending time outdoors is important for children in the summer. We will be sending a lot of our camps outdoors to enjoy the warm summer days. While we are fortunate enough to have an abundance of indoor space, please put sun block on your child and send them with the appropriate clothing.
What should my child bring or NOT bring?
What to Bring each day:
Camp T-shirt: campers will receive their TSC Summer Camp shirt on Monday of camp week. They are encouraged to wear their t-shirt any and/or all days of camp.
Shoes with socks – no sandals please (campers will not be able to enjoy our inflatable zone without socks on).
Water Bottle: please make sure that the campers name is on the water bottle.
Snack: Please send your child with a healthy snack each day.
What NOT to bring:
Cell phones. Electronic games/iPods/iPads. Pocket knives or any other form of a weapon
Personal equipment (unless specified in camp details) Any medications that are not unauthorized Campers are responsible for their own belongings. TSC will not be responsible for any lost or stolen items. Please don’t bring any expensive items or large amounts of cash to camp.
What is the refund policy?
No full refunds will be given, however an in-house credit for another camp during the 2013 summer season may be given only with management approval. Notification must be given 7 days before the start of each camp. There will be no credits for missed days.
What if there is a behavioral problem?
Campers may be disciplined for inappropriate language, abusive behavior, insubordination, illegal substances and any other issue which disrupts the camp day. The type of discipline will be decided by the camp counselor and/or camp director, depending on the situation.
In most cases, our counselors will use the following discipline policy:
*Strike 1: A verbal warning and a plan to correct the behavior – this is the child’s chance to correct their own behavior.
*Strike 2: If the problem persists after the warning, a call will be made to the parents in an attempt to come up with an alternate solution and time away from activity.
*Strike 3: The camper will be dismissed from camp. The parents will be responsible for picking up the child. No refund will be issued.
What happens in the event of an emergency?
The Total Sports Management Staff is trained in CPR and First Aid. Parents will be notified immediately if their child is injured, sick, or in need of emergency medical attention. If you cannot be reached, we will call the emergency contact that you listed on the sign-in sheet. If your child needs emergency attention and neither you nor the emergency contact can be reached, we will seek the proper services necessary. Also, please fill out the medical concerns and allergies portion on the sign-in.
