Additional information:

Late pick-ups (following 3pm) will be charged $15.00.  After 3:15pm without parent contact, additional measures will be taken to ensure student safety.  CW will make every reasonable effort to only release students to the person (s) designated by the parent/guardian on the registration form.  Once a student is signed out by a parent/ guardian the CW Program is no longer responsible for that child.  Parents must come into the designated area to sign-out students daily. If a student is to be released to anyone other than the person listed, the Site Director must be notified, directly.  I.D. will be required if someone unfamiliar to CW staff arrives to pick up your student.

Disruptive or disrespectful behavior toward other students or staff will not be permitted and will because of dismissal from the program.

Parent/Student Behavior

The CW staff will treat all parents and campers with respect, kindness and patience. I will treat the CW staff with respect, kindness and patience. I will make sure that my child understands that he/she must treat fellow campers and all staff members with respect, kindness and patience.

It is strictly prohibited for my child to leave the premises without adult supervision.

It is strictly prohibited for my child or I to touch, push, hit, fight, use profanity or lewd language towards others.  Fighting will result in an immediate one-day suspension from camp and potential removal program, per the Site Director’s discretion.

I understand that the following actions will be taken if my child behaves inappropriately, and I will make sure that my child understands these consequences as well.

First behavior incident: The parent will receive a phone call.

Second behavior incident: The child will lose a privilege (e.g. swim day). The parent, child and Site Director will have a meeting to discuss the child’s behavior.

Third behavior incident: The child will be suspended from camp for one day.

Final behavior incident: The child will be permanently dismissed from camp for the summer.

Depending on the severity of an incident the Site Director has full autonomy to suspend or remove a student from the program, immediately.

Personal Belongings/Attire

Please do not send your child to camp with any valuables or personal belongings.  Cell phones, cameras, toys, games, and any other electronic devices are strictly prohibited. I will send my child to camp in appropriate attire: athletic shorts or pants, t-shirt and closed-toe athletic shoes with socks.  I understand that my child will be sent home for the day if he/she is not dressed appropriately.

Community Works is not responsible for any lost or stolen items.


I understand that the Site Director will contact me immediately if my child becomes injured or ill. I trust the Community Works staff to use their best judgment and take appropriate action if my child becomes ill or injured.

CW does not provide any refunds. Summer Program Fee is due in full.
