Because safety is our primary concern, only authorized persons may sign the camper in and out each day. A completed and signed pickup authorization form MUST be on file for each child during registration. Changes may not be made on the original form. If changes are necessary, the original authorizer must complete a new form. Only individuals listed on the pickup authorization form will be allowed to pick-up the camper. PHOTO ID IS REQUIRED FOR ALL AUTHORIZED INDIVIDUALS. Campers cannot sign themselves out of camp.
Campers can be dropped off no earlier than 9:15 a.m. A parent or guardian must sign the child in. Parents/guardians may not drop off a child (camper) unsupervised. The Town of Poolesville is not responsible for any children (campers) left on the recreation areas/playgrounds prior to official opening time. Pickup is at 3:30 p.m. Parents/guardians sign the child out.
In the event of a late pickup, a parent/guardian should call camp staff as soon as possible. Staff are not permitted to transport children home under any circumstances. If a parent/guardian is more than 30 minutes late and has not contacted the camp supervisor, police may be called to assist the child.

Campers are expected to exhibit appropriate behavior while at camp. To provide campers and staff with a safe and enjoyable experience, the following guidelines have been developed. A caring and positive approach will be taken regarding discipline. Camp staff will reinforce appropriate behavior through positive reinforcement, clear statements, and redirection of activity. All campers must understand and follow the guidelines set forth.
Listed below is the three-step disciplinary procedure for campers exhibiting unacceptable behavior. Depending on the severity of the behavior, a particular step may be skipped (i.e., aggressive behavior will not be tolerated).
• Step 1: Verbal warning
• Step 2: Time out or time away from the group, based on age. During a time out, a camper may have to sit out from activities including games, crafts, or a special event. Parents/guardians will be notified of their child’s time out. Time outs for ages 5-6 will be 6 minutes; 10 minutes for ages 7-9; and 15 minutes ages 10-11.
• Step 3: Parent conference. If unacceptable behavior continues, the Camp Director or Assistant Camp Director will speak with the child and their parent/guardian. The parent/guardian will be required to sign a written warning and pick up the child from camp. After receiving two written warnings, the child will be expelled from camp. No refunds will be given. The staff will review these rules with campers on the first day of camp.
The staff will review these rules with campers on the first day of camp.
