LATE ARRIVAL / EARLY DEPARTURE

Grow Day Camps begin on Monday morning and end Friday afternoon. Each day starts and ends at the time listed on the schedule posted online and in the site-specific brochure. Please make every effort to avoid late arrivals and/or early departures. If a late arrival or early departure is unavoidable, please notify the Site Director.

 

STATE EARLY CHILDHOOD LICENSURE EXEMPTION

As a seasonally operating day camp providing religious and recreational programming, Grow Day Camps is exempt from state licensing requirements for early childhood education programs and therefore is not licensed by the state. This notification is required by condition of our exemption. Grow Day Camps programming is guided by 90-plus years of camp ministry experience, and its operation is consistent with the best practices established by the American Camp Association.

 

HEALTH HISTORY, TRANSPORTATION, USE OF LIKENESS RELEASE

The day camper being registered has permission to participate in all Grow Day Camp activities except as noted by me and/or an examining physician. I give permission to the physician selected by Grow to order x-rays, routine tests, and treatment related to the health of my child for both routine health care and in emergency situations. If I cannot be reached in an emergency, I give my permission to the physician to hospitalize, secure proper treatment for, and order injection, anesthesia, or surgery for this child. I understand the information on this form will be shared on a “need to know” basis with Grow staff. In addition, Grow Day Camps has permission to obtain a copy of my child’s health record from providers who treat my child and these providers may talk with the program’s staff about my child’s health status. I understand that all medications for my camper will be administered by the Grow Director or Site Directors, and that the nurse on-call will serve in a consultative or emergency role only. I give permission to Grow staff to transport my camper for emergency or programmatic purposes at the discretion of the Director.
