CAMP GUIDELINES AND POLICIES
After all attempts to contact parents and emergency contacts have failed, a child who is not picked up by 6:30pm will be considered abandoned The police department and Division of Family Services will then be called. Child may be removed from the program if payment is not made
SIGNING IN AND OUT: It is mandatory that you or an authorized pick up person, sign your child in and out each day. If there is a person you need to pick your child up that is not on his/her registration form, we will need to have an addition add/drop contact form completed and signed. Please let the Program Director know of any changes, example phone numbers, addresses, persons to be released to, by completing and turning in the add/drop contact form.
ACCIDENTS: The MAC is not responsible for any personal injury incurred while the children are at the program. Parents are encouraged to purchase insurance to cover accidents. You will be informed of any accidents that occur while your child is at The MAC and we’ll ask you to sign an accident report, letting you know the details.
REFUNDS: The MSM fee is NON refundable. Typically, we do not issue refunds for registration fees for any reason other than the MAC cancelling a camp. However, we do understand that illnesses and family emergencies can happen. In these cases, we will be happy to offer enrollment in another camp at a later date or possibly in another MAC Program. Simply contact us for more information.
MEDICATION: Any child taking medication must be capable of taking his/her own medication. UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES WILL ANY OF THE CAMP MAC STAFF BE ALLOWED TO DISTRIBUTE ANY MEDICATIONS OTHER THAN HANDING IT FROM THE LOCKBOX TO THE CHILD. MEDICATION RELEASE MUST BE ON FILE. (Form available at the MAC or in the Parent Handbook see link above)
DISCIPLINE GUIDELINES: To insure a safe environment there are some guidelines and rules that need to be followed. All rules will be explained to campers. Campers are asked to treat others and their property with respect. Physical violence of any kind will not be tolerated. If there is a behavior problem the counselor will first try to handle them.
Severe and/or repeated misbehavior will result in the following:
- 1st offense – warning, the child will be reminded of the rules and asked to follow them.
- 2nd offense – We will ask the camper sit in the “Cool Down” area for a time period totaling 1 minute per year of age. (ex: A 7yr old getting a 2nd warning will sit in the cool down area for 7 minutes)
- 3rd offense – The camper will return to the “Cool Down” Area and the parents will be notified.
- 4th offense – the child will be suspended for 2 days.
- 5th offense – the child will be expelled from camp and not allowed to return.
IN SEVERE SITUATIONS A CHILD WILL AUTOMATICALLY RECEIVE THE FIFTH OFFENSE. The MAC has a zero tolerance policy on violence. If a Camper strikes another Camper, an immediate suspension will be issued. The Camper who is struck is not to strike back, but should immediately report this to their Counselors for their own safety. Violence is not answered with violence, or that individual will also be suspended.
