Communication

On-going communication between staff, parents and campers is critical to your child achieving a successful and fun experience at camp.  If at any time you need to share information, concerns or compliments, we encourage you to speak with a staff member.  To contact your child during camp hours, please call 770.383.2970.  Our doors will be kept locked during camp so you must call for entry. It is best to make arrangements in advance for early pick-ups.  You must call to gain entry during our camp hours since we only use back entrance.

 

Code of Conduct

To ensure a quality experience, we ask all staff and campers to abide by the following code of conduct:

  • Respect others' privacy and safety.

  • Physical or verbal abuse of any kind will not be tolerated.

  • Treat public and private property and equipment with respect.

  • Camp rules shall be observed at all times.

We utilize positive reinforcement and a caring environment to encourage good behavior.  Camp staff will promote proper behavior with clear guidelines and expectations.  Inappropriate behavior by a camper will be addressed in a sensitive manner, and the camper will be redirected towards proper behavior.  If a behavior becomes so disruptive that it is unacceptable, the parent or guardian will be notified and the child may be asked to leave the program.

 

Camp Attire
Campers should dress for comfort and safety; and in clothing that may become stained. Campers should wear athletic shoes (no flip-flops). Campers are discouraged from wearing jewelry or bringing items of value. Please use your SBCA school bag or small backpack to send in Diapers, Wipes, Change of clothes (Two’s - completed 4's) and Water Bottle (K-5th grade required).  Please be sure everything is label w/ child's first and last name. 

Lunch and Snacks
Campers are required to bring a lunch and water each day. Each camp group will attend a 30-minute, supervised lunch period. Neither refrigerators nor microwaves are available for campers to use. Any camper with allergy concerns should also bring their own daily snack.

 

Drop Off / Pick Up Times
All campers must be dropped off on Monday-Thursday through carline between 8:50 -9:10am.  Campers must be picked up between 12:45pm and 1:00pm using carline.  Any campers not picked up by 1:00 will be charged a late fee of $1.00 per minute late.  Please use carline number and SBCA totebag for summer camp. New students will be issued a car line number and tote bag if needed.

 

Sign In/Sign Out Procedures
Due to pandemic we will only use car line and will not allow visitors in buildings. Any changes in pick up must be submitted in writing prior to 12:30pm to angela.york@summitchurch.org or text to 770-702-8054.

 

Illness and Injury

  • If a camper becomes ill or injured at camp, our staff will contact a parent or guardian to pick him/her up. For the protection of all campers and staff, any child believed to have an infectious illness should not attend camp. If your camper is injured at camp, our staff will take necessary measures to administer first aid or obtain medical care.

  • SBCA, Summit Baptist church and staff may not be held responsible for any injuries while student is attending summer camp.

  • We follow SBCA sick policy including completing Daily Health Check (see below).

  • We must stress that you keep your child home if he/she has any contagious illnesses, such as nausea, diarrhea, sore throat, rash or skin eruptions.  Please make sure your child is symptom-free for twenty-four hours before allowing him/her to return to camp.  We will call you to come and pick up your child if we find he/she has a temperature over 99 degrees (student temp will be checked daily before they exit vehicle).  Please notify us at once if your child has a contagious illness.  If your child becomes sick or injured at school, you will be notified as soon as possible.  Notify us of any changes in phone numbers if you are planning to be out or away for the day.  We need to be able to reach you if your child becomes sick or injured.

Medication
We do not store or administer medication to campers.

 

Sun Protection

We will go outside daily, weather permitting.  Please apply sunscreen prior to arriving at camp!
