RecPlex Summer Day Camp Enrollment

Day Camp

The RecPlex Summer Day Camp program offers the following: full day care, half day care (mornings or afternoons), and half day specialty camps. You may enroll your child for the entire week or specific days. The fee includes afternoon snack. Upon enrollment, the parent/guardian must fill out information and medical forms. The medical paperwork is used to inform your child' s counselor of any medical needs. Information covered on this form will include allergies and any medications that your child may be taking. The information form specifies who should be contacted in case of an emergency and lists individuals who are authorized to pick up your child. These documents will only be seen by staff members, the program director, and medical personnel in emergency situations. All information is kept confidential. Children are grouped together by the grade level they will be entering in Fall 2021.

Staff and Ratios 

The key ingredient to a fun and positive summer camp experience is our professionally trained and enthusiastic staff. We take pride that we have several returning staff members each year, some even previous campers themselves. Our staff undergoes training including (but not limited to) CPR/ First Aid, Child Abuse and Neglect, Emergency Procedures, Behavioral Management, Discipline Policy, Beach, Pool and Ice Skating Safety, Field Trip Procedures and Parent Communication. 

A majority of our staff are college aged students who are passionate about making a positive impact in the lives of every camper who is in our summer camp. We look for individuals who have had previous experience working with children and who are also focusing on a concentration in college that pertains to children, childcare or recreation. 

The RecPlex Summer Day Camp has the following ratios: 
Ages 4-6 years old: 1 to 6 ratio 
Ages 7-9 years old: 1 to 8 ratio 
Ages 10-13 years old: 1 to 10 ratio 

In addition to a Youth Manager, who oversees the camp, there is a Youth Supervisor and up to 8 Lead Counselors who manage and oversee the day to day operations of the RecPlex Summer Camp.
