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 our dismissal process. We use the PikMyKid app which gives parents the ability to designate people to pick up their children if they are unable to do. It is all done through a secure app, to ensure that only those you designate are allowed to pick up your child(ren). Parents and others will be unable to pick up campers without the app or without being designated by the “primary parent”.
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.
