What if my child is not old enough for the camp?
As long as your student reaches the age of eligibility during this session, then your student can participate in that camp. We cannot make any other age exceptions for our camps
What if my child doesn’t know anyone?
Many of our campers are new to Kelrik. We encourage a very friendly and welcoming atmosphere where kids will meet new friends. Your child will also have a specific staff person assigned to their group who can assist in easing the transition.
Can I sign up the first day of camp?
All of our registration is done on-line, so please check for availability. Many of our camps fill up so we encourage early registration.
What if my child is upset the first day of camp? Can I stay with them?
We find that at times, especially for younger campers, the first day can be a bit overwhelming. Our staff is equipped to look out for children who may need encouragement to participate. Staff may come over and try to engage your child in opening activities like dances or games or introduce them to other campers. Parents are welcome to stay through opening activities, but once campers break into groups, we've found that mom or dad's presence sometimes makes it more difficult. Almost always, once campers have a few minutes to see what fun camp is, they quickly adjust. Please be assured that if your child is overly upset for an extended period of time, we will contact you
What about supervision?
Your child’s safety is our utmost concern. Each person hired by Kelrik has completed a background check, interview, and camp staff training. Kelrik limits the maximum attendance in order to maintain a safe leader/student ratio. We try to maintain a supervision ratio of 1 staff per 9 students for ages 8-12 and 1 staff per 6 students for ages 5-6.
Who do I contact in case of emergency during camp?
On the first day of camp when you drop off your child, you will be provided the contact cell number of your Camp Director in case of an emergency.
What if my child has special needs?
Kelrik openly welcomes all children with special needs. Please let us know what the special needs are by filling out the form when registering on line as well as noting if your child will require additional assistance to participate. Kelrik will work with you to allow your child to participate. Please give us as much information as possible so we can make your child's experience successful.
