Morning Drop-Off

When children are dropped off in the morning, parents must walk the child into the building and sign them in. *Per CDC recommendations, when possible sign-in stations will be placed outside and hand sanitizer must be used by each parent to clean hands before the child is signed in. CA Camps staff are being advised to meet students outside as they arrive. For CA CA Camps, parent drop-off/sign and parent pick-up/departure will occur at a Parent Station outside of the program. Temperature and symptom checks will be conducted before children are accepted into the program.

If a child is left and not signed in by the parent/guardian, the parent will be called and must return to the facility and sign the attendance book. Failure to sign your child in may result in removal from the program.

If your child will be absent from camp please:

Afternoon Pickup

When parents arrive to pick up their child at the after-care program, they must sign out their child.*Per CDC recommendations, when possible sign-in stations will be placed outside and hand sanitizer must be used by each parent to clean hands before the child is signed out. Child care staff are being advised to meet students outside as they arrive. For Camp, parent drop off/sign in and parent pick up/departure will occur outside of the program at the Parent Station.

Written permission is required before a child may be released to someone other than a parent, guardian, or emergency contact. Please be advised that individuals with whom the program director is not familiar will be required to show identification. Without proper authorization, children will not be released to anyone other than the parent or the emergency contact listed on the registration form and emergency card. No exceptions will be made. If your child is under 8 years of age, individuals picking up your child must be at least 16 years old, for children 8 years of age or older individuals picking up your child must be at least 13 years old.

Late Pickup

Camps end at 4pm and extended care program ends at 6 pm. We understand that emergencies occur; however, it is your responsibility to contact someone to pick up your child and to notify the program regarding the identity of that person. Late pickup fees will be assessed for picking up children after 4 pm Camp dismissal and 6 pm for extended care. The fee will begin at 4:01/ 6:01 pm (see here). If a child is not picked up from camp by 4:30 pm and aftercare by 6:30 pm and CA has not had contact with a parent/guardian/emergency pick-up person, the appropriate child welfare authorities may be contacted. Late pickup fees are not subject to a reduced rate and are due within three business days.

Continuous late arrivals (more than two during the summer) may result in a suspension of up to five days from camp or in termination of enrollment in the program. There are no credits or adjustments for time not used in the camp week due to late pick-up suspensions.

Non-Custodial Parents

In the absence of a court order, non-custodial parents have full access to their child or children. Non-custodial parents who fall within these parameters may elect to provide a list of emergency contacts for the pickup of the child or children. Non-custodial parents with limited access to a child or children must provide a copy of the court order and must provide a list of emergency contacts authorized for pick up on the court-ordered days.
