Expectations for Behavior 

  • In general, all campers, staff, and parents/guardians are expected to show respect to each other. Our philosophy is that children deserve positive environments that support emotional well-being and healthy development. Furthermore, we believe that young people should be involved in the decisions that affect them.
  • At the beginning of each week, the campers and staff will jointly develop guidelines for behavior and consequences for violating the guidelines. These guidelines will be shared with parents/guardians at the end of the first day. 

Arrival and Departure 

  • Parents, guardians, or authorized adults should drop off campers between 12:45 and 1:00pm each day. 
  • Pick up should be between 5:00 and 5:15pm for regular campers and before 6:00pm for campers who have paid for late pick-up. 
  • A late fee of $5 per 15 minutes will be charged for children picked up late.
  • Parents/guardians should notify staff if the camper will be driving themselves or will be dropped off/picked up by someone under the age of 18.
  • Campers need to be signed in and out with a designated staff member. 
  • Please have an adult notify staff if the camper will be absent, arrive late, or leave early. Staff will not release campers without parent/guardian permission. 

Snacks

  • Staff will provide a healthy snack for campers each day. Parents/guardians can ask staff for the day’s snack.
  • Parents/guardians should inform staff of any allergies or food restrictions so that staff can make appropriate plans.

Health and Special Needs 

  • Our staff is committed to providing for the well-being and development of every camper. We maintain a small camp so that staff have the opportunity to get to know each camper well and adapt the camp experience to maximize their experience. 
  • Parents/Guardians can assist staff in this goal by informing camp staff of any special health, behavioral, or other needs. We will work with families to develop appropriate plans for each camper, including plans for administering medication.
  • All staff are trained in adult and child first aid and CPR.

 

  • Please do not send your child to camp if they have any signs of illness, including fever, coughing, sneezing, sore throat, diarrhea, or vomiting. A child must be diarrhea, vomiting and fever-free for a full 24 hours before returning to the program. 

 

  • COVID-19: Conundrum Escapes is following recommended guidelines from the CDC, including frequently cleaning surfaces, encouraging hand-washing and other healthy hygiene practices throughout the day, and screening for symptoms. Additionally, camp is limited to 8 campers and only campers and staff will be allowed in the building during camp hours.

Security 

  • Building: Only campers and staff are allowed in the building during camp hours. Guests and customers must perceive permission to enter and must sign in and out. 
  • Personal property: Campers should limit the personal items they bring with them and all items should be labeled. Conundrum Escapes does not have a secure place to store items and is not responsible for any lost, stolen, or damaged items. 
  • Missing persons: Staff will periodically check that all campers are in their assigned locations. Campers should not leave the building without a staff member or their authorized pick up person. If a camper is missing, at least one staff member will remain with the other campers while a second staff member attempts to contact the camper by cell phone and if necessary, contacts the camper’s parent/guardian or emergency contact and calls 911. 

Emergency Response

  • If there is a minor accident during camp, the staff will administer appropriate first aid and will inform the adult picking up the camper at the end of the day. 
  • For emergencies requiring medical treatment, the staff will call 911 and the parent/guardian immediately. If unable to reach the parent/guardian, we will contact your emergency contact. 

Field Trips/Outside Visitors

  • Due to public health concerns, we will not offer any trips off-site or visit public areas.
  • We may invite outside visitors to videochat with campers but will not have visitors on-site.
