Our care providers understand that children are impacted by what is happening around them, and they know how to support them at school.
Checking your Child in at Camp
Please feel free to park at the curb to drop off and pick up your child. Enter through the main entrance at Crestline Elementary School. Staff will meet you and get your child signed in. Please bring your employee ID and photo ID. You will be required to sign in and sign out at the end of the day with photo ID. Please wash your hands or use hand sanitizer before and after signing in and out.
Medication will be checked in by a staff member. Please include the following in a ziploc bag with your camper’s full name labeled on the bag.
Camp Evergreen Medication Form completed and signed (see link provided)
Medicine dispenser spoon (if needed)
Health Screening at Entry
Your child's temperature will be recorded upon entry each day. You have the option of bringing your own thermometer and taking the child's temperature in the presence of staff. Staff will also check for symptoms and ask if medications were used to lower the child's temperature, and if any household members have been diagnosed with COVID-19.
Whenever the weather allows, we will spend time outside. Outside time will be staggered for campers, and social distancing will be observed. If it is too cold, or pouring rain, we will not be outside.Please send appropriate clothing with your child. Also, we do many art projects, and children tend to get messy, so please send children in clothes that can get messy. Send at least one change of clothes for preschoolers.
Breakfast, lunch, and dinner will be provided, but if your child has special dietary needs, you will need to send their meals. Parents are responsible for sending children with their own snacks and water bottle. Due to unknown possible camper allergies, we are asking for your cooperation: please do not send snacks that contain any peanut or nut contents, if possible.
Preschool age bathroom accommodations/procedure
We require that all preschoolers be potty trained. (no Pull Ups) We realize that some may still need help from time to time with buttons and zippers. PLEASE HAVE YOUR CHILD GO POTTY BEFORE YOU DROP THEM OFF.
Camp Evergreen will be staff by qualified, background checked school employees.
