Anaheim Red Shield FACILITY POLICIES
CODE OF CONDUCT
FORMS, DOWNLOADS & PRESS INFORMATION
It takes a special person to be a counselor for our campers, your kids. Camp counselors have to be energetic, enthusiastic, fun—but also trained to respond quickly and efficiently in any situation. Your child’s safety is our number one priority.
• All staff members will receive First Aid and CPR certification from The American Red Cross.
• Staff are trained for emergency procedures at each camp location.
• When taking a field trip, a certified counselor with The Salvation Army Decisive Driving Certification will drive.
• Staff will be equipped with cell phones and first aid kits, as well as all emergency information needed for each participant.
• Lifeguards will be present during all swim sessions that take place during camp.
• A first aid kit and a list of medications and allergies will be on camp staff at all times. Parental emergency contact information will remain on staff no matter the activity, and cell phones will be allotted to multiple staff members for emergency purposes and to remain in contact with the Camp Manager.
MORE ABOUT CAMP
Campers can be dropped off between 8–8:30am and picked up by 6:00pm.
Full payment is expected at the time of enrollment. No cash refunds are given unless the program is canceled by The Anaheim Red Shield. If the program is canceled, you will be given the choice of a full credit or a cash refund. If you request to cancel your class enrollment five or more days prior to the first class, you will receive a full refund minus a $25 processing fee or you may choose to transfer to another session if available. Requests made less than five days prior to the start date are not eligible for a refund or credit, except in the case of personal emergencies. No credits or pro-rated credits will be issued for missed days of camp or class due to illness, partial attendance, behavior issues, or any other reason.
Each camper must have a parent or guardian sign a camp waiver and supply correct and updated medical information in regards to their child(ren). Waiver(s) must be completed and signed prior to camp participation, preferably at time of registration.
As a parent, if your child has any special medical needs, please include these with the desired response on the Registration Form. These will include, but are not limited to, any medical or behavioral diagnoses that may affect your child’s experience at camp. Updates can be made throughout the summer based on a case-by-case basis and will be reported directly to camp coordinators. By providing this information, you are providing our staff with the knowledge and ability to provide the best care possible for your child. Please note that there will be no nurse/doctor on-call at The Anaheim Red Shield.
Lost & found items will be kept for a period of two weeks after a session, then donated to the local Salvation Army Thrift Store. Lost & found is located at The Anaheim Red Shield front desk.
In the case of medication distribution, parents must complete a Right to Distribute Medication Form. This releases The Anaheim Red Shield from liability for medication that is required for distribution for the health of a child. Medication must be dropped off to Camp Coordinators in the original prescription container with your child’s name printed on the label and placed in a plastic bag. Medication will be stored in Camp Coordinator’s office and administered at the time(s) and in the amount designated by the Right to Distribute Medication Form. Parents must sign out medication at the end of each day and check back in the following day. Any medication not brought in the appropriate container may preclude camp participation for your child on that day.
Camp is not designed or equipped to handle ill children. If your camper becomes ill while at Camp, our staff will make your child comfortable in an area away from the other campers. Our staff will then contact you (the parent) or one of the individuals you have authorized to pick up your child. If immediate medical attention is needed or if the severity of an injury cannot be correctly established, parents will be notified immediately. The Emergency Medical System (911) will be activated at the discretion of Camp Coordinators and/or Camp Counselors. If staff are unable to reach parents whose child is in need of immediate medical attention, he/she will be transported to the nearest hospital via ambulance and staff will continue to attempt to contact parents. Parents/guardians will be responsible for all emergency medical care expenses.
1. Campers must stay with their age group and be accompanied by a counselor during all camp activities.
2. Camp attendees are expected to respect peers, Anaheim Red Shield staff and the facility at all times.
3. The use of foul language, abusive actions, and inappropriate behavior is prohibited.
