Camp Policies

Refund Policy

Refunds are available until two weeks before the camp start date. Please note that Eventbrite, our camp registration partner, does not refund any fees paid as part of the registration. For example, a full refund on a $50 camp will be $45.35 (or $256.90 on a $275 camp).

Lunch and Snacks

Campers need to bring their own lunches. We’ll provide snacks and water. If your camper has food allergies or restrictions, be sure to list them when you register. Make sure your child is aware of their allergies and what foods or ingredients to avoid. We will have peanut-, tree nut- and gluten-free snacks available. Food and drink may not be shared with other campers.

Schedule

Camps are from 9 am to 4 pm each day. You can drop off as early as 8:30 am, and pick up no later than 4:30 pm. If your child has to miss a day of camp, please let us know as soon as you can.

Contacting Your Camper

If you need to contact your child or the instructors during the day, call 919-293-1133.

Check In and Check Out

When you drop off your camper in the morning and pick them up in the afternoon, please come to the station outside our office door. This allows us to safely match each camper with their parent or other authorized adult.

Check Out / Pick Up by Authorized Adults Only

Only authorized adults will be allowed to pick up a camper. If you need to add another authorized adult after registration, email their full name and relationship to the camper to classes@kramden.org. This must be done before the pickup time. This includes any other parent/guardian or any relative if they were not listed during registration. We check IDs at pickup to ensure your camper’s safety.

Medical and Special Needs

If your child has any daily or emergency medication or device, such as an EpiPen, please make sure they bring it. Let the instructors know they have it when you check in. All medication must be brought in the original bottle and campers will only be allowed to use it as directed on the bottle unless accompanied by a doctor’s note. No medications other than those listed on your camper’s registration or those you inform us about in advance will be allowed. If your student may have trouble using their medication as directed, please let the instructors know. If you have information about your child’s special needs that will help us make sure they a great time at camp, please contact us before camp begins.

Outdoor Activities

Our camps include break times and activities when campers will be outdoors (weather permitting). Make sure your child brings appropriate clothing and supplies (jacket, sunscreen, water bottle, etc). If there are restrictions on your child’s physical activity, please let us know in advance.

Behavior

Campers are expected to treat the instructors and other campers with respect at all times. If a camper is disruptive, instructors may intervene to help the camper improve their behavior. Continued disruptive behavior may result in temporary or permanent dismissal from camp. Physical aggression or threatening behavior will result in immediate, permanent dismissal from camp.

Phones and Electronic Devices

Campers are permitted to bring their devices to camp, but may only use them when allowed by the instructors. If device use interferes with camp activities, the instructors may take possession of the device until the end of the day. Devices may not be shared with other campers.

COVID-19 Safety Practices

The health and well-being of our campers is our top priority. Our in-person camps in July and August will be held in accordance with the latest safety recommendations. We have established policies and practices to keep campers safe. We appreciate your cooperation.

  • Masks are required at all times except when actively eating or outside and distanced from others
  • Maintain safe social distancing from others
  • Drop-off and pickup will be outside. Each camper will complete a quick health screening (temperature check and questions about symptoms) before entering the building.
  • Family members must wear masks when dropping off and picking up. Family members cannot enter the building.
  • Hand-washing is required at arrival & departure and before & after lunch or snack. Hand sanitizer will be available to be used throughout the day.
  • Each camper will have a set of equipment (laptop and other supplies) assigned to them. Equipment will not be shared with others. Equipment will be cleaned each day.
  • Lunch and snack will be eaten outside, weather permitting, with distancing.
  • Campers must stay home if they have flu-like symptoms, have come in contact with anyone diagnosed with COVID-19 or displaying flu-like symptoms, or if the camper is recovering from COVID-19 until cleared by doctor (negative test result or 10 days after symptoms end).
  • Parents should immediately notify Kramden of positive COVID test results for the camper and any other member of their household during the camp week.
  • If a camper displays flu-like symptoms during the day, their family will be notified immediately to pick them up and they will be separated from the other campers in a designated office.
  • High-use areas of our building will be cleaned and sanitized regularly during the day.
