Camp Checklist

  • Verify that the confirmation statement emailed at registration is correct. Call us right away if you see a discrepancy.
  • Sign and return a completed Health and Emergency Form (under Forms) to the College BEFORE Wednesday, June 1.
  • Make sure everyone authorized to pick up your camper is listed. You may also add names later.
  • If your camper needs to take medication during camp, send a completed Medication Administration Authorization Form (under Forms) two weeks before the first day of camp. Be sure your health care provider has signed it. Medication must be in original containers.
  • Review the procedures on these pages, especially Drop-Off and Pick-Up, to make your first day go smoothly.
  • 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 for our student population. Please sign and return the COVID Safety Acknowledgment form (found under Forms) before your camper comes to campus.
  • Read Weekly Camp Email. On the Wednesday before your camp starts, you will receive an email with specific camp check-in instructions/location.

Health Information

Maryland state regulations require that a current Health and Emergency Contact Form 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 BEFORE Wednesday, June 1.

Without this completed form on the first day, your camper will not be able to participate! If the College receives the form prior to the second session, your camper 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 camper 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 related to your camper’s health, contact us!

All campers are asked to bring the following items daily:

  • reusable water bottle
  • face covering (recommended, not required)
  • snack (optional, breaks are scheduled in all camps) no snack will be provided.
  • approved medication (accompanied by the correct authorization form), if needed

Campers staying for a full day may also need:

  • lunch (that needs no refrigeration or heating). See our Grub Lunch for a paid lunch option.
  • snacks (optional one for morning and one for afternoon)

Parents/guardians are encouraged to label all camper personal belongs.

Online Camps

If your camper is registered for any of our online camps this summer, please complete our Summer! Kids@Carroll + Teen College Online – 2022 Agreement and Waiver (under Forms). You do not have to submit a Health and Emergency form or COVID Safety Acknowledgment form unless your camper is physically on campus this summer.

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).

Masks are highly recommended but not required.

  • Cloth, surgical, or KN95 masks that cover both the nose and mouth, are recommended, not required, to be worn inside college facilities. The College strongly encourages individuals who are high risk or immunocompromised to continue to always wear a mask. It is important that the face mask fits well and is worn over the nose and below the chin. If the face mask is removed for a break or to eat/drink, you should remain at least 6 feet away from all other people.
  • There may also be conditions or extenuating circumstance in which campers or staff may still be required to wear masks. We ask that you respectfully comply.
  • If the College has a need to impose a mask requirement in the future and a camper or campus guest has a licensed healthcare provider’s note documenting a valid medical reason for not wearing a face covering, then a face shield will be accepted as an alternative. Camper families are required to provide a copy of their healthcare provider’s exemption note to StudentCareCovidResponseTeam@carrollcc.edu  or Dr. DaVida Anderson, Director of Student Care & Integrity at danderson3@carrollcc.edu . A College letter will be provided to the camper family for confirmation.
  • Masks will continue to be available from Kids@Carroll staff and at the Information Desk located inside the main entrance of the A building and Campus Police.

EXHIBITING SYMPTOMS OR POSITIVE COVID-19 TEST RESULT
DO NOT COME TO CAMPUS IF YOU:

  • Test Positive for COVID-19; or
  • Received a call from a Health Department Contact Tracer and are asked to quarantine or isolate; or
  • Have a temperature reading of 100.4 or higher or other COVID-19 symptoms.

Contact your health care provider for guidance on testing and symptoms.

For more information on when to quarantine or isolate, visit  https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/if-youare-sick/quarantine.html

These procedures are designed to promote safety and mitigate risk for campers, instructors, and staff while supporting the need to continue face-to-face in-person education and support the success of all our students in-person.

Campers must fill out the Summer!Kids@Carroll + Teen College Self-Reporting COVID-19 Contact Tracing Form if you:

  • Test positive.
  • Have been in close contact with someone who is positive/suspected of being positive.
  • Are only exhibiting symptoms of COVID-19. Please err on the side of caution and self-report so the College’s Contact Tracing Team can provide guidance.

For questions related to contact tracing, camper families should contact Dr. DaVida Anderson at danderson3@carrollcc.edu. Students may also receive follow-up emails from StudentCareCovidResponseTeam@carrollcc.edu .

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 recommendations without notice or liability. Please check periodically for changes.

Unexpected College Closings and Severe Weather

Staff will contact each family directly with instructions. Campers will remain supervised until picked up. To register, go to carrollcc.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.

In the event of severe weather, the college has an outdoor warning notification system. A siren sounds in the event of a tornado or other severe weather when seeking immediate shelter is recommended. An announcement will also be made over the college’s PA system and on e2Campus.

In such an event, campers and staff seek shelter in a “Severe Weather Area Shelter” and close all doors to stairwells, interior hallways, rooms and bathrooms. We will shelter in place until given “all clear” by campus police. If parents or campers are in a vehicle, get out and seek shelter in a sturdy building. Do not drive or try to outrun a tornado.

Medication

No medication will be administered without the Medication Authorization Form signed by the health care provider and received by the camp at least one week PRIOR to your camper’s first day. This form must be completed fully for staff to administer the required medication or for the camper to self-administer medication.

A new medication administration form must be completed at the beginning of each camp season, and each time there is a change in dosage or time of administration of a medication. Medication must be in original containers. Prescription medication must be in a container labeled by the pharmacist or prescriber.

Nonprescription medication must be in the original container with the instructions for use. Nonprescription medication includes vitamins, homeopathic, and herbal medicines. This includes campers with insulin pumps, asthma inhalers and Epi pens.

An adult must bring the medication to the camp and give the medication to an adult staff member. Self-carry is only permitted for emergency medications such as inhalers and epinephrine. Both the prescriber and the parent/guardian must consent to self-administration, and the camper must be over the age of 11.

Summer!Kids@Carroll + Teen College reserve the right to revoke self-carry or self-administration of any medication at any time. Find the Medication Authorization Form (under 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. If your camper has any allergy that requires reasonable accommodation, please see our Special Camper Needs section.

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 camper has and to arrange for reasonable accommodations.

A staff member will contact you to discuss your camper’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 recommendations without notice or liability. Please check periodically for changes.

Masks are highly recommended but not required.

Drop-Off Procedures

  1. Park near the yellow Kids@Carroll banner near the K building (see Campus Map) and look for camp staff wearing staff t-shirts. They will provide direction and be happy to answer your questions.
  2. Accompany your camper down the service road to the outdoor checkpoint or the gym. Find the sign for your camp on the gym wall or ask any staff member for assistance.
  3. Find your camper’s instructor next to their camp sign. Check in with the instructor. Your camper will join the camp group until camp begins. Campers will be escorted to their classrooms as a group.

If you arrive late and no greeters are present, please walk your camper to the Continuing Education and Training office, Room A115 (see Campus Map), to be checked in. Do NOT go to the classroom.

The College cannot be responsible for campers dropped off without a staff member present. Campers cannot be supervised for morning programs before 8:45 a.m. unless enrolled in Start up Time. 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.

For children age 5 – 12

  • Children must be signed out from your camper’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 (under Forms) on file, teen campers may sign themselves out.
  • Self-Sign Out Authorization Forms are under Forms and 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 by an authorized adult (see procedure for children age 5 – 12).

Teens with a Self-Sign Out Authorization may sign out younger siblings IF the teen is listed on as an authorized individual on the younger child’s Health and Emergency form.

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 Campus Map). Do NOT go to the classroom. Instructors are NOT permitted to release or accept campers at the classrooms.

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

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 camper in another program of their 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

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 recommendations without notice or liability. Please check periodically for changes.
