Camp Foxtail Summer 2013

 

Camp Foxtail Week 8: July 29th to August 2nd "Down with the Dinosaurs"

 

Morning of Monday, July 29th

  • If this is your child's first day of camp and you haven't already, make sure you get your child’s orange CF field trip day shirt and your parent handbook. You will also be asked to complete some paperwork if you have not already done so. To make your morning easier, visit the About Camp Foxtail page to print out the documents and have them filled out when you arrive.
  • Please remember, WE DO CHECK ID’S (yes even Mom's & Dad's) UPON PICK UP EVERY DAY AND WILL ONLY RELEASE YOUR CHILD TO A NAME LISTED ON THE SAFE PICK UP LIST. NO EXCEPTIONS. This is for the safety of your child.

Everyday July 29th to August 2nd

  • All Campers MUST be physically signed in and out by an adult over the age of 18 years old. Please do not drop your child at the front and have them walk in on their own.
  • If you arrive to drop off your camper before 9:00 am, please walk them in to the Community Center Game Room. Promptly at 9:00 am all campers in the Game Room will line-up, drop their bags in the Maple room, and will go out to the playground until around 9:30 am.
  • If you arrive between 9:00 and 9:30 am, please drive behind the Sam Bass Fire Dept. to the Community Park playground. The counselors will sign in your campers there.
  • If you arrive after 9:30 am, please bring your children in to the Community Center Maple room.
  • Send your camper with a sack lunch and beverage. Please do not send anything that needs to be heated or refrigerated since we don’t have access to either during lunch.
  • Please do NOT send your child with money to get their beverage from the vending machine. This always prompts those kids who can’t get stuff out of the vending machine to be upset, so we prefer it just doesn’t happen.
  • Send your child in comfortable, weather appropriate clothes and closed toed shoes. Please do not send your child in flip flops. We do run, play, sit on the floor, and climb on playscapes and flip flops can cause injury. Also, keep in mind while we do spend time inside, we also spend time outside, so if it is a warm day, don’t send your child in pants.
  • Send your child with a refillable water bottle (so we can keep them hydrated), a hat & sunscreen (for outside time), and ALL ITEMS LABELED with their names.
  • Please do NOT send your child with electronic devices or valuable items such as a DS, iPod, Pokemon cards, money, etc. We are not responsible for lost or damaged items.

Tuesday, July 30th – Swimming at Cat Hollow Pool

  • We will leave for the pools after 12:30 pm and will return to the Community Center by 4 pm.
  • Please send your child with a swim suit, towel, sunscreen, swim shoes (if they want them), and a clean change of clothes for after the pool.
  • If you prefer your child to use a flotation device in the pool (i.e. floaties or a life jacket) please send them with your child.

Wednesday, July 31st– REUNION RANCH FIELD TRIP!

  • Make sure your child is at the Comm. Center by 9:30 am for line-up! We will return around 4 pm.
  • Send your child WEARING their bathing suit with the Orange CF field trip day shirt, shorts and athletic shoes.
  • Also make sure your child brings with them a hat, refillable water bottle, SUNSCREEN, a towel, and a change of clothing.
  • Please send your child with a disposable lunch bag with your child's name written in sharpie on the bag. We will be having a picnic at Reunion Ranch for lunch.
  • Please do NOT send your child with extra money for the field trip. All parts of this trip are included in the registration fee and there will not be an opportunity for them to use spending money.

Thursday, August 1st – Swimming at Creekside Pool!

  • We will leave for the pools after 12:30 pm and will return to the Community Center by 4 pm.
  • Please send your child with a swim suit, towel, sunscreen, swim shoes (if they want them), and a clean change of clothes for after the pool.
  • If you prefer your child to use a flotation device in the pool (i.e. floaties or a life jacket) please send them with your child.

*Please note between the 10 am to 11:30 am daily and Monday 3 pm to 4:30 pm time frames the campers will be divided into their groups of 20 and will rotate through the following activities; Craft, Game, and a Sport.

*Family Time is a moment every morning for the campers to sit down with their counselor to discuss what will happen that day, to remind each other about proper behavior and to share fun stories with each other to start off the day with a positive attitude.

*Hobby Time occurs daily after lunch or after the return from a field trip. Hobby time is basically "free time" where the campers can hang out with their friends, play games/do activities, and get back on track for the rest of the day. We often jokingly refer to this time as "Supervised Chaos" since it appears to be a room full of campers doing unorganized activities, but it is actually an extremely important part of our day. Hobby Time helps campers move past that after lunch or post field trip overload and reset. Ask your child what they did at Hobby Time today!
