WRITTEN PERMISSION TO WALK HOME OR DISMISSED AND LEAVE WITH AN OLDER SIBLING:
What is an emergency? We realize that each person views emergencies differently. At Mill Basin Day Camp, we define an emergency as a situation that requires us to call a parent or someone that is listed on the registration form as Emergency Contacts. Lets hope that there never is one, but in the event that a situation arises that requires emergency attention, the following steps will be taken.
First, our staff will see to and take whatever action is called for in the situation. Next, we will attempt to contact the people listed on the form. Of course, our office can and will call parents for anything that our professional staff feel requires one. An example could be a bump on the head, a splinter, stomach ache or even a quickie call for a camper that might need to hear a parents voice to help them through the day. If you have a personal reason that you feel requires a call, please speak to us anytime.
ALL campers receive Kosher Style lunch every day. Hot and cold lunches are mixed in throughout the week. All campers can also bring lunch with them each day. If sending lunch you should send lunch they like, a drink and a small snack. The lunches will be refrigerated until lunchtime and then returned to the campers. Please do not send any food that needs to be heated or micro-waved. Check menus to see if your camper does not eat what’s being served or has dietary or allergy issues. Please use the camp lunch bag if possible and write your campers name on it.
Lunch Menu Will Be Available Prior To The Start Of Camp
Snack is given every day to ALL campers. It could be a bag of chips, pretzels or cookies. We hand out different kinds each day to keep the campers interested. ONLY WATER IS SERVED AT MILL BASIN DAY CAMP!. Seconds and extras are available but well try and limit the sugar wherever possible. Please feel free to send your own snack with them as well.
During camp hours, your phone calls will be answered by a live person, not a recording. They will be happy to answer as many questions as possible. However, during those hours, we can’t promise that you’ll be able to speak to a director right away. They are out in the field supervising their groups and activities. In most cases, someone will call you back at the end of the day or in the evening. When you call and you need to speak to a director and they are not available, it would help if you told the office staff why your calling and when and where you can be reached later on. If you call after camp hours, make sure to leave your name, your campers name, and group, along with the reason for your call. We will make every effort to return your call as soon as possible
Each camp has its own unique program. There are different dates for each camp group and you will receive an email or text as to when those dates are announced. At the meetings, you will be able to pick up your campers’ summer supplies. The directors of each camp will be there to answer your questions and we will talk about your campers’ upcoming summer. If you have campers in 2 different age groups, you only have to come to 1 meeting if you like and you can pick up all the stuff at one time. PLEASE NOTE THAT IN ORDER TO ATTEND THE MEETING AND RECEIVE THE CAMP GEAR, ALL BALANCES MUST BE PAID IN FULL.
