Safety is our number one goal at Club SciKidz. All of our campers are supervised 100% of the time. All staff undergo three background checks, are screened and attend training. The training includes but is not limited to classroom management, emergency procedures, abuse prevention & reporting, and Club SciKidz procedures. The majority of our staff is CPR & First Aid certified. Our site directors are experienced certified teachers who are not only first aid and CPR certified but have received Medication Administration Training.
The majority of our camp locations have locked exterior doors. Club SciKidz follows the procedures of the host location concerning keeping doors locked and entry into the building. Parents are asked to only use designated doors and to check in with the director upon entering the building. Parents and other adults are not permitted to wander the building or walk unescorted throughout the building.
A large component of our safety measures is the four digit code that is used to pick up your camper. You will receive your family four digit code on the Monday of each week. Whoever has this code can pick up your child(ren). Children canNOT be picked up without a code so it is imperative that whoever drops campers off on Monday morning shares the code with those who will be picking up. We do not do an “Approved Pick Up List” or check ids. We rely fully on the four digit code. This allows parents to give instant permission for picking up their camper.
We do not allow cell phones and other electronic devices at camp. If parents choose to allow their child to bring them, they should be kept in backpacks and unseen throughout the camp day. Cell phones should not be used throughout the day– even breaks, lunch and outdoor activities. If instructors and directors see them, they may be confiscated and returned to the parent at dismissal.
Because of the severity and number of peanut and nut allergies, we are a Nut Free Zone. Please do NOT send peanut or tree nut products in your child’s lunch or snacks. If you accidentally send something with peanuts or nuts, your child will be permitted to eat apart from other students. We’ll also provide a reminder on the first occurrence.
