We will not be wearing them all day, but may ask our campers to wear them at times when maintaining social distance is difficult. It is strongly encouraged that you are on time for camps this summer due to our health screening protocol. Campers must remain in their vehicle until you are greeted by our athletic trainer. Camper’s daily self report form must be completed before arrival in carline. This form will be emailed or texted to you each day by 8 a.m. each day. Camper’s temperature will be taken, and if <100 degrees, they will be allowed to attend camp that day. If temperature is 100 degrees or later, camper will not be allowed to attend camp that day. At 9 a.m., gates will be locked for the day and you must use the Ring doorbell to enter after this time. Call 302-575-0550, ext. 209 with any questions.
All campers will be dismissed using our carline. Children will be escorted to your vehicles by Kaleidoscope staff. If your child's dismissal arrangements change for the day, please send a note to your child's camp teacher in the morning. We appreciate learning about dismissal changes upon your child's arrival, however, if a change is necessary, please call the Day Camp Office 302-575-0550, ext. 209.
In order to dismiss all children safely at each day camp’s end, it is imperative that all drivers refrain from cell phone use for talking or texting while waiting in the car line as this has proven to be a distraction and a delay.
