HEALTH HISTORY & FORMS

New York State Department of Health requires each camp to keep a current copy of every camper’s immunization history on file in order to attend. Campsite keeps immunization forms on file for as long as you have an account. Upload all immunization forms once, then you only have to upload immunization forms when they have been updated. A complete copy of your child’s immunization history should be submitted to the Creative Themes by May 1, 2020. Campers without an immunization history on file will not be permitted to attend.

PERSONAL POSSESSIONS

Please, leave all valuables, including cell phones, other electronics, card games and special toys at home.

A towel, bathing suit, sneakers and a change of clothes are all that’s needed in a backpack. Flip flops and crocs are fine for the pool area but should not be primary footwear. On rainy or cold days, coats or sweatshirts may be needed. Mark your child’s name on the clothes. Many nice pieces of clothing are left at camp with no way to identify the owners.

CAMPERS’ BEHAVIOR

Campers are expected to respect and listen to the camp staff.

No taking of other campers’ stuff.

No fighting or bad language will be tolerated.

No destroying camp property.

HEALTH DEPARTMENT INFORMATION

Creative Themes Day Camp obtains a yearly permit to operate from the New York State Department of Health. We are inspected three times during our summer operations and reports are filed with the Monroe County Department of Health.

This is your account that you will create or have created to log- in and fill out your camper application, make payments, medical forms, and other paperwork every year for camp. The button is at the top pages to link you to your account login.(helpful tip: bookmark this page for easy access.)

WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN A CAMPERSHIP CUSTOMER AND A NON-CAMPERSHIP CUSTOMER?

A Campership Customer is a current customer who paid a fee to enroll in our Campership program during the previous summer. Campership Customers need to register between Dec.1 to Jan. 15 and pay the registration fee and deposit to ensure a spot for the upcoming summer. These customers will confirm their summer sessions starting in Mid-February and no later than Mid-March.

Non-Campership Customers are allowed to register February 1st. These customers can only register for the remaining spots available. Otherwise, a wait list is started.

WHAT DOES A CAMP DAY LOOK LIKE?

Normal camp hours are 9 am to 3 pm. The camp daily activity schedule begins at 9:05 a.m. Our daily schedule concludes at 2:35 p.m. with dismissal at 2:50 p.m. Normal camp hours, drop off begins at from 8:30 to 9:00 and pick up is from 2:55 to 3:25. Our PDC pk 4/5 program 9-1 pm program has dismissal at 1:00 pm daily and the full day group dismissal is 2:50.

WHAT HAPPENS IF I NEED TO PICK MY CHILD UP EARLY?

If you need to pick your child up early you should send a note or call the camp office 385-6830, let us know the time of pick-up and who will be picking up. The person picking up the camper needs to walk into camp and sign the camper out at the main office.

WHAT HAPPENS IF I DROP MY CHILD OFF LATE?

If you are running late or your child has an appointment, you will need to walk your child into camp and check them into the main office. They will be taken to their group and assume the normal camp schedule.

WHAT TYPE OF EXTENDED CARE SERVICES ARE OFFERED?

AM care from 7:30 to 8:30 am
We provide cereal and juice each morning.

PM care is from 3:30 to 5:30
Creative Themes staff will sign-in and check–out all extended day campers a snack is provided. Depending on the weather and camper numbers, the activities vary but might be open swim, fishing, archery, playground, and art.

IF NEED TO BRING MEDICATION FOR MY CAMPER, WHAT SHOULD I DO?

All campers must have health and immunization information completed on the “Parent Dashboard” forms section. List all medications on this service.  Medications must be in their original container and with a valid expiration date on drop off day and our medical staff will take care of distribution. All Epi-Pens should be in a prescription box with the child’s name.

***All campers with medication need to have a Medication Authorization Form*** on file prior to attending camp. This form can be found also on the “Parent Dashboard”..

DOES CT HAVE SUNSCREEN AVAILABLE?

Yes, we provide sunscreen to all campers and our staff will help to apply the sunscreen. There is a place to indicate on your camper’s infortion to indicate whether or not you would like to use our sunscreen or not. We ask that all campers come to camp with sunscreen applied. The staff will work on ways to build sunscreen times into their daily activities but it does not happen first thing in the morning.

SPF 30 Kids Friendly Sunscreen. Broad spectrum UVA/UVB protection. Allows your skin to breathe and perspire keeping your body cooler. Hypoallergenic, Free of Vitamin A (retinyl palmitate), PABA, fragrance, wheat, gluten, glycol, and nut oils. For more information on the sunscreen go to www.rmsunscreen.com.

SHOULD CAMPERS BRING A CELL PHONE OR IPOD?

We would prefer no electronic devices to camp. It would be very easy for them to get lost or broken. We do not allow campers to use their devices during the day so they need to be kept in the office for safety. The camp phone is always available for any camper that needs to make a call. If a camper has a phone they should bring it to the camp office to be stored for the day. Phones are not allowed in our locker rooms. Creative Themes takes no responsibility for any electric device that is lost, broken or stolen.

WHAT SHOULD CAMPERS BRING TO CAMP?

Bring a backpack or tote to keep personal belongings in. Things to bring would be a bathing suit, towel, change of clothes, rain jacket (when it rains), warm clothes (for cool mornings) and lunch (M, T, W, and TH). Remember we provide drinks at lunch and plenty of water throughout the day.

Campers should always wear closed toed shoes, flip-flops are fine for going to and from the pool but will not be allowed for walking around camp. We recommend a good sneaker or hiking type shoe. This will keep your feet safe from injuries and allow you to participate in all outdoor activities at camp. (Note: we have found Crocs to be a bad choice as a camp shoe.)

WHAT ARE THE COUNSELORS LIKE?

In one word, AWESOME! Age 16 or older, our counselors come with a wide variety of experiences. Above all, they have been chosen to work at CT because they all enjoy working with kids. Many of our counselors are past campers who understand the camper’s needs. They want to help you experience new things and have the time of your life! When we ask campers what they like most about the camp, most of the time it is the Awesome Staff.

HOW DO PARENTS COMMUNICATE WITH THE CAMP? WHO WILL BE A PARENTS “CONTACT” OR GO TO PERSON AT CREATIVE THEMES?

At Creative Themes, we believe in creating a strong communication system with our parents. We view our relationship as a partnership, with the central goal being your child’s happiness. Our summer office hours are between 8:00 a.m. and 5:30 p.m. daily. Your child’s Lead Counselor will be your primary contact here at camp and you can touch base with them at drop off or at pick up times. Should you need to talk with them and do not see them just call the office and we will take care of the connections.
