  • Getting Ready For Camp

    Camp Checklist

    • Carroll Community College is committed to ensuring the safety and well-being of our students, employees and the community we serve while supporting the need to continue on-campus education. Please sign and return the COVID Safety Acknowledgment form (see Required Forms) before your child comes to campus.
    • Verify that the confirmation statement emailed at registration is correct. Call us right away if you see a discrepancy. You will not receive any other reminders; this is the only confirmation you will receive.
    • Sign and return a completed Health and Emergency Form (see Required Forms) to the College as soon as possible but no later than 2 weeks before your earliest camp session.
    • Make sure everyone authorized to pick up your camper is listed. You may also add names later.
    • If your child needs to take medication during camp, send a completed Medication Administration Authorization Form (see Required Forms) 2 weeks before the first day of camp. Be sure your health care provider has signed it. Medication must be in original containers.
    • Review all procedures, especially Drop-Of and Pick-Up, to make your first day go smoothly.
    • Read Weekly Camp Email. On the Wednesday before your camp starts, you will receive an email with specific camp check-in instructions/location, including a link to our Campus Check-In Self Declaration Form – Camp Families.
    • All campers are required to bring the following items to full-day camps daily:
      • lunch (that needs no refrigeration or heating)
      • towel or cushion to sit on outside
      • water bottle (pop-up straw recommended)
      • face covering (Masks are required for all campers and staff while indoors. A clean mask for after lunch is recommended.)
      • snack (optional; outdoor mask breaks are scheduled)
      • approved medication (accompanied by the correct authorization form), if needed
    •  Label all camper personal belongings.

    Health Information

    Maryland state regulations require that a current Health and Emergency Contact Form (see Required Forms) be on file for each participating camper. You need to complete this year’s form even if your child/teen attended camp here in the past.

    Please submit your form as soon as possible but no later than 2 weeks before your earliest camp session.

    Without this completed form on the first day, your child will not be able to participate! If the College receives the form prior to the second session, he/she may attend beginning with the second session. If the College does not receive the Health and Emergency Contact Form prior to the second session, your child will not be eligible to participate and you will not be eligible for a refund.

    A camp nurse is on call during camp hours. Indicate any medical concerns on the Health and Emergency Contact Form. If the nurse has any questions, you will be called the week before your camp. Examples of medical concerns include, but are not limited to: medications used during the camp day, asthma, diabetes, epilepsy, seizures or heart defects. Campers who are required to carry an Epi pen must indicate so on the form. If you are unsure about anything medically related, contact us!

    Safety

    Safety is a top priority! Children age 12 and under are supervised at all times and may not travel through the campus without a staff escort. In addition, at the end of the camp day they must be signed out by an authorized adult. However, teens age 13 and over are given a little more independence and may, with parent approval, sign themselves out at the end of camp(see Pick-Up Procedures). All other movement through the campus and at lunch is supervised.

    In compliance with MDH regulations, a background check is conducted for all staff, volunteers and instructors (including those who are teaching for our partners).

    Unexpected College Closings

    Staff will contact each family directly with instructions. Campers will remain supervised until picked up. To register, go tocarrollcc.edu/alerts. We have a special Kids@Carroll group that will only be active in the summer. Enter the message CCCKids when signing up for the College’s free Emergency Notification System. Messages about any emergency closings will be sent directly to your email and/or cell phone.

    Medications

    No medication will be administered without the Medication Authorization Form signed by the health care provider. Medication must be in original containers. This includes campers with insulin pumps, asthma inhalers and Epi pens. See Required Forms.

    Nut Allergies

    We do not knowingly include nuts or nut products in any part of the program. However, the College cannot guarantee a nut-free environment.

    Special Camper Needs

    Summer!Kids@Carroll + Teen College is committed to providing accessible education and a supportive learning environment for all students. To help us meet this goal, after you have registered, please contact our Disability Support Services, 410-386-8329, at least four weeks before the start of the earliest camp to inform the College of any physical disabilities or behavioral/social challenges your child has and to arrange for reasonable accommodations. A staff member will contact you to discuss your child’s individual needs and determine what reasonable accommodations can be made. Carroll Community College does not provide medical assistants or personal care attendants. Campers are expected to exhibit independence and ability for self-care. Parents are not permitted to attend camp with their child.

    We reserve the right to make changes to our guidelines and programs described at any time based on the most current CDC, State and local COVID recommendations without notice or liability. Please check periodically for changes.

    Coming to Camp

    Drop-of and Pick-up while maintaining social distance.

    Drop-Of Procedures

    1. Park near the yellow Kids@Carroll banner and look for camp staff wearing staff t-shirts.
    2. Accompany your camper down the service road to the checkpoint. Be prepared to show your camper’s face covering.
    3. Tell us the name of your child’s camp, and staff will direct you to your camper’s instructor.
    4. While you check in with your camper’s instructor, your camper will join his/her camp in a socially distanced area. (You don’t need to wait once checked in.)
    5. When all campers are present (or at camp start time), instructors will lead campers to the classroom. 

    If you arrive late and no greeters are present, please walk your child or teen to the Continuing Education and Training office, Room A115 (see Map below), to be checked in. Do NOT go to the classroom. The College cannot be responsible for campers dropped off without a staff member present. Children cannot be supervised for morning programs before 8:45 a.m. We cannot supervise afternoon participants before 12:45 p.m. 

      Pick-up Procedures

      Be sure to review your pick-up plan with your camper and arrange to pick them up promptly at the end of the camp. If you are delayed, call us at 410-386-8100 and we will let you know where to pick up your camper.

      Pick-up is in the same location as Drop-off.

      For children age 5 – 12

      • Children must be signed out from your camp's instructor by an authorized adult.
      • The College will only release your camper to those listed as ‘authorized’ on the Health and Emergency Contact Form. (We will not regularly check IDs when the campers are picked up, but may ask if needed.)

      For teens age 13 and over

      • With a signed Self-Sign Out Authorization Form (see Required Forms) on file, teen campers may sign themselves out.
      • Self-Sign Out Authorization Forms will also be available from the instructor and at the administration table throughout the summer.
      • Pick up teen campers at the yellow Kids@Carroll banner. During inclement weather they may wait in the lobby of the K building.
      • Without a signed Self-Sign Out Authorization Form on file, teens must be signed out from the camp's instructor by an authorized adult (see procedure for children age 5 – 12).

      Early Pick-Up

      For Kids@Carroll and Teen College:

      Complete an Early Pick-Up Form from camp instructor or administration staff and provide it to program staff or instructor. Pick up your camper at the designated time from the Continuing Education and Training office, Room A115 (see Map). Do NOT go to the classroom.

      Behavior

      We ask all campers to remember that college is in session and administrative offices are open for business. Campers are expected to respect the rules, demonstrate appropriate behavior, language, and…
      • Behave in a friendly, cooperative and reasonable manner toward other campers, instructors and staff
      • Respect the ideas and property of others
      • Be able to work independently
      • Be able to focus on a task to completion
      • Follow camp rules and guidelines
      Disruptive and inappropriate behavior may result in dismissal.

      Cell Phones and Electronic Games

      We hope the campers in our programs are too engaged to think about cell phones and electronic games. Help us maintain a fun learning environment by reminding campers of the following:

      Cell phones must remain of during camp sessions. If you need to reach your child while camp is in session, please call our office (410-386-8100) and a message will immediately be delivered to your child.

      Camp Cancellations, Withdrawals and Refunds

      The College expects all programs to be presented as scheduled. In the event that a program is cancelled, every effort will be made to either place your child in another program of his/her interest or provide a refund. A decision about cancellation is made 2 weeks before the start date of the camp. You will be contacted by email of cancellations.

      We understand that plans sometimes change. If you need to withdraw your camper, the following refund schedule will be applied:
      • 10 business days before camp start date: 100% refund
      • Less than 10 business days before camp start date: Partial refund
      • After camp begins: No refund
