summer day camp

Parent Information

Camp Goals:

Our goal is to provide our campers a safe and fun environment to develop leadership skills, teamwork, while making friends, and working on their specialty track.  We hope that our campers will leave the summer having further developed the skills we are teaching in camp and can take those values further on in life.

Specialty Tracks:

All day campers have the opportunity to pick the Dance or Activities track for the summer. If camper would like to switch track for the week, parents must advise by the Friday before the upcoming week so that we may plan appropriately.  

Dance Track will include 2 weeks of Ballet, Jazz, Hip Hop, and Lyrical dance EACH.

Activities Track will outdoor activities that allow for teamwork, leadership development, and FUN!

ALL campers get to participate in additional fun games, crafts, and tumbling at ACE Cheer Company during the week. Additional activities include arts and crafts, gardening, nature and science, math, performing arts, and free play. All kids are encouraged to participate in all activities. If a child is unable to participate in activities because they don’t feel well then they may need to be picked up by a parent for the day.

Dates: 
Camp will be available from May 28th 2019 through July 26th 2019. Camp will be closed on Memorial Day and Independence Day.

Hours:
Camp will open at 7:15 am - 5:30 pm.  We ask that parents make accommodations to pick up their camper on time.  Late pick up fees are $5.00 for the first 20 minutes and $1.00 per minute until 30 minutes.  Late fee must be paid at pick up time.

Child Pick Up:

Campers will be released only to persons who are listed on the Authorized Pick-up section of the registration form. In emergency situations, changes in authorization must be given to the center's Director.

Payments:
All fees must be paid by the Friday before the week of camp the child will participate in.  We prefer that fees be paid online on the Impulse Dance Center web portal, but will also take payment via cash or check.  There are no refunds for payments that have been made as we have already reserved each campers spot once payment has been made.


Lunch and Snacks:
Each child will need to bring 2 snacks and a lunch each day they participate in Summer camp. If your child forgets their lunch we may accommodate them for the day for an additional $5 fee.We ask that parents pack lunches that do not require refrigeration or heating. Small coolers and ice packs in lunch boxes are ok to bring and use. We ask that all parents alert us of ANY AND ALL food allergies that their child may have so that we may make the proper accommodations to ensure safety.


Medication:
We will need a written permission form from the parent for the administration of medicine with specific instructions as to quantity, time for medicine to be administered and any other directions. Medications will need to be in the original container with the child’s name on it. First Aid First aid kits are kept in the center, and consist of Band-Aids, bandages, latex gloves and CPR masks. A written record is kept on file for all incidents requiring first aid. The program staff will contact parents, if needed.

Clothing:
Please send your children in closed-toed shoes everyday. Sandals are not allowed.  Children that are in dance track will be required to bring their ballet shoes during Jazz, Lyrical, and Ballet week.

Attire is comfortable clothing and NO JEANS. Also, make sure to send your child dressed in clothes that are appropriate for camp. Kids will be participating in activities that are active and dirty so nicer clothes that could get damaged are discouraged. Because our camp will have outdoor activities we take extra care to monitor the heat index and air quality. We adjust our day to avoid overexposure, create cool, shaded places for activities and plan in advance.
