Water and Lunch:
It is essential that every camper brings and drinks adequate amounts of water at camp on a daily basis. Campers should bring a refillable water bottle as there will be coolers for refills. We recommend drinking at least 64 fl. oz. of water for a 6-7 hour camp. No food will be provided at our summer camp. Parents will be required to provide a healthy lunch for their child each day. Please note there is no refrigeration available to store food so lunch options should include non-refrigerated items.
Bathrooms located at Marcus Garvey Park and Bethel Gospel Assembly Church will be available and easily accessible for campers to use. We will coordinate 1-2 bathroom breaks throughout the day for the entire camp to transition together. Campers will be supervised at all times. In the event of any bathroom emergency, campers will also have access to an on-site portable toilet.
Physical Injury or Illness
While a certified physical trainer will not be present at the camp. All Members of our coaching staff are CPR / AED certified. In the event of any serious injury or illness our procedure is to contact the parents and, if necessary, the local emergency services. In the registration process, we also ask important medical questions so that we are always aware of any pre-existing injury or illness.
How the Campers Are Grouped
Campers are grouped accordingly: by age, gender, ability level and teammate request. Groups may be adjusted in order to provide the best possible camp experience for the participants. During the camp, all groups will remain intact and rotate to various coaches throughout the day. This allows the campers the benefit of working with different coaches and learning various skill sets.
Weather will be monitored before the start of camp. In the event of inclement weather, parents will be notified by email one hour prior to the start of camp should there be any changes to the camp schedule. Weather updates will also be messaged out directly via text. If inclement weather should arise while camp is in session, the following procedures will take place.
1. Rain / Heavy Rain
In the event of light rain, camp will continue as planned. In case of long periods of heavy rain, campers will take shelter and all parents / guardians will be notified via phone call that campers may be picked up immediately.
In the event of lighting, campers will immediately be escorted off the field of play to a sheltered
area. Parents / guardians will be notified via phone call that campers may be picked up
3. Extreme Temperatures (Heat Waves)
In the event of a heat wave, we will change the camp curriculum to ensure the safety of all campers. The amount of water breaks will increase throughout the day to eliminate dehydration. If
temperatures become too hot, campers will take shade under on-site tents.
We do understand that plans can change, so please notify us of any changes as soon as possible.
