All of our campuses have a full-time security professional on-site during the day. In addition, our building security includes a door lock system with an intercom for gaining access.
DROP-OFF AND PICK-UP PROCEDURES
Summertimes provides a safe environment for everyone on our campuses. During pick-up and drop-off, staff will be directing carpool on each campus. We ask that all guardians obey speed limits and drive carefully when on campus.
For dismissal, any individual picking up a camper must display the pick-up authorization placard (sent via email to registered families) in their car window or present it to camp staff. Only individuals listed in the “Guardian” and “Emergency Contacts” sections of the camper’s registration account will be allowed to pick up the camper. If an authorization placard is not presented at pick up, the guardian’s identity will have to be verified with a government-issued I.D. If an individual picking up a camper is not listed in the online registration account as a “Guardian” or “Emergency Contact,” Summertimes staff will have to contact the camper’s guardians to confirm that the individual is allowed to pick up the camper.
We encourage parents and guardians to visit our campus to watch a camp performance, demonstration, or game—or simply to say hello! To ensure the safety of our campers, we have a few policies and procedures in place for visitors. As our building doors are locked, we ask all adult visitors to use the intercom system at each main entrance, check in at the front desk or office, and wear a name badge while on campus.
Each camper’s health and wellness is a top concern. During the ten weeks of our Summertimes programs, we have a nurse on the Lower School campus and trained medical professionals on the Middle and Upper School campuses. Summertimes requires that your camper have a valid immunization form submitted no later than June 1, which can be uploaded into your online registration account. Each camp is assigned a First Aid backpack that travels with that camp throughout the day.
INCLEMENT WEATHER AND HEAT MONITORING
Each SSSAS campus has a lightning prediction system. The system will sound a long siren blast when lightning is detected, and all campers will be asked to move inside until they hear three short siren blasts from the system.
The Summertimes staff closely monitors the temperatures during the day, especially for outdoor and sports camps. In particular, when the WetBulb Globe Temperature (WBGT) reading is above 92 degrees, any active athletic workouts and exercises are delayed until a lower WBGT temperature is recorded.
