COMPLETING APPROPRIATE CAMPER WAIVER, IDENTITY FORMS & PAPERWORK

All campers must complete the necessary camp forms in order to participate in QSports Summer Camps. These forms are required and mandatory— depending upon the location your child will attend camp. Please complete these forms before July 1 2017.

 

REPORTING ILLNESSES & ABSENCES DUE TO ILLNESS

QSports Summer Camps should be notified by phone 33087381 or email if a child is ill, especially if the illness is communicable. Internally, we keep track of the instances of communicable diseases at camp, and when appropriate will notify the parents of all children that may have been exposed, while respecting the confidentiality of campers and families involved.

 

Communicable Diseases

Campers who have communicable diseases will be sent home and may not return to camp until the illness has been treated successfully and the camper is symptom free.


Lice

Campers who have signs of head lice (itching, head irritation, etc.) will be removed from their group and escorted to the camp office by the Safety Specialist. If we believe there is a possibility of head lice, we will ask the family to pick their camper up from camp. In order to return to camp, a camper must have had all active lice removed from his or her hair & and no longer show any signs of infestation, itching or irritation.

 

DISCIPLINE POLICY

QSports Camps staff uses the positive techniques of guidance, including logical or natural consequences applied in problem situations, redirection of children to more acceptable behaviour, anticipation of and elimination of potential problems and encouragement of appropriate behaviour rather than comparison, competition or criticism. Consistent and clear rules are established. Staff members encourage children to solve problems rather than imposing solutions and help children to recognize and respect one another’s feelings. Coaches encourage pro-social behavior such as cooperation, helping, taking turns and constructive verbal communication to solve problems. The goal is to help children internalize rules and become self-directed in their behaviour.

QSports Camps reserves the right to dismiss a child for consistent behaviour that makes it difficult or impossible for the staff to meet his/her needs and/or the needs of other children in the group. This will occur without a refund (or portion thereof) or credit towards a future program. This will occur only after parent/staff discussion has occurred.

 

POTTY TRAINING POLICY

All campers attending QSports Summer Camps are expected to be fully potty-trained by their first day of camp. We ask that families provide an extra set of clothes with campers, if a camper has a history of bathroom accidents. If an accident occurs during camp hours, the Staff and Safety Specialist will notify the camper’s primary parent/guardian.

 

AUTHORIZED PERSON PICK-UP POLICY

All adults must be authorized to pick up campers. (Parents/guardians and emergency contacts identified during the enrolment process are automatically authorized.) You can add to the list of drivers authorized to pick up your camper and add additional authorized drivers during registration or by letting the registration coordinator register an additional authorized person.

 

QSPORTS SUMMER CAMPS SUNSCREEN POLICY & PROCEDURE

QSports policy is to do everything possible to protect our campers from excessive exposure to the sun, while still allowing them to get the most out of our outdoor games and activities. No activities of the summer camps are conducted outdoors with the exception of Al Waab NBS Campus conducting swimming lessons outdoors under a shaded pool. For al Waab campus, parents should follow:

 


Sunscreen

Parents/guardians should provide sunscreen for use during the camp day. Sunscreen sent to camp should be placed in a sealed plastic bag and labeled with the child’s first and last name. Pursuant to careful research and the recommendations of the American Academy of Dermatology, all QSports Summer Camps are stocked with Sunscreen SPF 50+ spray with broad spectrum UVA/UVB protection for use by any camper that does not supply their own.

Families are responsible for applying the first layer of sunscreen prior to morning drop-off and provide it for use during the camp day. Upon receipt, coaches will label all sunscreen and place it in a tote bag that will be in their possession throughout the day. Any remaining sunscreen will be sent home Friday, the last day of camp. During the camp day, QSports staff will take all reasonable and appropriate steps to help each child reapply sunscreen to exposed skin– including the face, the tops of ears, and bare shoulders, arms, legs, & feet– prior to campers’ participation in outdoor programs.

Coaches will not apply sunscreen when skin is broken or an adverse reaction has been observed. When staff notices these reactions, they will report them to the Staff and Safety Coordinator who will contact the camper’s family. If, for any reason, coaches cannot apply sunscreen on a camper, s/he may not be able to participate in outdoor swimming activities for his/her own protection in Al Waab. If parents/guardians have more than one camper attending camp, we ask each camper have their own supply of sunscreen so that it is readily accessible throughout the camp day.

 

POLICY ON ELECTRONICS, TOYS, TRADING CARDS & PINS

QSports Summer Camps strives to provide a program free from video games, cell phones, audio players, toys and other distractions. Please do not permit your child to bring any of these items to camp as they will be busy throughout the camp day and these items also tend to get lost or misplaced when brought to camp.
