While we welcome you during check-in, drop-off, pick-up and open house times, parents/guardians are not permitted to stay on campus. It is very important that we are able to maintain a safe and secure environment for our campers and staff at all times. We also find that some campers will separate from a parent much more easily if there is a quick drop-off in the morning. Encourage your child to use the drop-off service during the mornings on Tuesday through Friday to help them transition smoothly into camp mode. Please be assured that we will contact you immediately if a camper has any concerns or becomes ill during camp.
We will not have items (such as LEGO builds, camper’s robots, etc.) on display at the camp closing session. However, we know family members love to see what their camper has been working on and the campers enjoy showing off their work to family members as well. Therefore, family members are welcome to come to the classroom for the last 15 minutes of each day’s session (Mon-Thurs) to visit and see what the campers have been doing. (11:45 a.m. - Noon for Grades K-1 and 1:45 p.m. - 2:00 p.m. for Grades 2 and up)
We welcome questions and input; however, please wait until check-out is over to meet with the individual instructor so that the check-out process runs as smoothly and quickly as possible. Also, please keep in mind that most questions can be answered by the Camp Director via a phone call or email.
On Friday of each camp week, families are invited to attend a brief closing ceremony, which includes the presentation of a camp certificate and patch to each camper. This will take place during the last 15 minutes of the camp session (11:45 a.m. - Noon for Grades K-1 and 1:45 p.m. - 2:00 p.m. for Grades 2 and up). Typically, there will be a slideshow of photos from the week’s session as well. Occasionally, instructors may invite you to arrive earlier and this will be indicated in a newsletter or the weekly camp information that will be available online at: http://ispacestem.org/summer-day-camp-parent-page/
Please call 513-612-5786 or 513-612-5774, before 8:45 a.m. and leave a message if your child will be absent. Please be specific, stating your child's full name and their camp group. If we do not receive a message from you, we will attempt to verify the absence by phone.
Please call 513-612-5786 or 513-612-5774 and we can let you in or bring the camper out to you.
If there is an emergency in which no one on your list can pick up your child, the primary parent/guardian must call 513-612-5774 or 513-612-5786 and speak with an iSPACE staff member to allow another adult to pick up your child. During camp hours, the camp director may be teaching, so please leave a message. Messages will be checked periodically during the day. Non-urgent messages may not receive a response until after camp hours. If an emergency arises that causes a delay in picking up your child, please call us so we can reassure them that you are on your way. Repeated late pick-ups could result in termination from the program.
If a camper becomes ill or injured at camp, we will notify parent/guardians listed on the registration as soon as possible so you may pick up your child if necessary. If you are not available, we will call the emergency contacts. Please keep this information current. In an emergency, we will call 911.
Please be sure we have been notified about any special needs or allergies (food, latex, etc.) If your child has an allergy, please indicate on the registration form if it is contact, ingestion, airborne, etc.
Please notify the Camp Director in advance of your child’s camp session(s) by phone (513)-612-5774 or email (email@example.com) that your child may need medication during the camp session. NO MEDICATION CAN STAY WITH YOUR CHILD IN THEIR CLASSROOM. (Exception - EpiPen’s will stay with the individual instructor. Please let us know if the EpiPen can remain at camp for the week or if it needs to be returned at the end of each day.) ALL medications must be given to camp staff upon arrival at the check-in table. Only the Camp Director(s) may administer a camper’s medication. This can be done privately in the office. Prescription medication must remain in original packaging, indicating the patient’s and prescribing physician’s name, date of prescription, dosage, and the name of the medication. Also, please indicate the time(s) and any special instructions for administration of the medication. Over-the-counter medications will be administered only with the written consent of the camper’s parent or guardian. Be sure to clearly indicate the dosage, time(s) and any special instructions for administration of the medication. Over-the-counter medications must be in original packaging. If you have any questions or concerns about the medication policy, please contact the lead Camp Director, Beth Taylor by calling (513)-612-5774 at least a week in advance of your scheduled camp session.
