will be called to pick up children if these symptoms are apparent

diarrhea, the child must be symptom free for 24 hours before returning
staff strives to provide a safe and healthy environment for all
children. We follow strict guidelines to the extent possible, but we do
not guarantee that we can keep our environment completely free of food
or other allergens that might cause a severe reaction.
What to Wear
uniforms are not required for Summer Camp; please have your child wear
comfortable clothing as most camps are outside at various times during
the day. Sandals, flip-flops, boots and "party shoes" are not allowed,
as they are not safe in our environment. Additionally, it is a very good
idea to apply sunscreen and bug spray every day, as most camps are
outside at various times during the day. Please apply prior to arrival.
Appropriate snacks are provided during most camps. For full-day camps (9:00 to 3:00
or later) parents must provide lunch for your child. Please clearly
label your child’s lunchbox with your child’s name. Lunchboxes need to
be self-contained (ice packs for cold food and a thermos for hot food).
Please send beverages and utensils needed for lunch.
to your camp session you will receive specific pick-up and drop-off
locations, routes, and directions. For the safety of all of our campers,
parents, and staff please follow the directions. Many of the driveways
at The Discovery School are one-way and failure to follow the correct
route can result in accidents. For some camps a staff member will get
your child from the car, while for other camps you are asked to park and
walk your child inside. Again, please follow your camp’s specific
instructions for safety and to ensure a smooth arrival and dismissal
arrive on time each day. If you are late for a camp day you will have
to drop your child off at the school’s main entrance to be logged in by
