Welcome to the 2014 Summer Camp!
This year we are offering an eight-week Summer Camp in our air-conditioned Clubhouse at One Positive Place in Shelton. Our Camp is certified by the State of Connecticut, and our staff are certified in first aid and CPR. Children are separated by age, and each group has its own activity schedule. Groups rotate through our building and grounds throughout the day, giving everyone a chance to play in our gymnasium, gamesroom, arts and crafts room, and computer room inside, and in the field, on the volleyball court, and on the blacktop outside. Wednesdays are field trip day, where members venture out to such locations as CoCo Key or Chuck E. Cheese. On Fridays, there is always something special after the free lunch cookout, such as Wacky Water Day, Field Day, or Club Idol.
Though this site gives an overview of our Summer Camp program, parents must read our Summer Camp Parent Handbook for complete information about our policies.

This form must be signed by the doctor and approval for meds to be self administered must be checked off. This form may be obtained from Jen DeLeon, Unit Director, and it must also be returned to Jen. Children requiring these medications may not attend camp without this properly completed form.

6 pm on Thursday the week before your child attends camp. Your child is not registered until all the required documents and full tuition payment are received; see Registration information above. You will not receive confirmation of registration; parents must follow up if they are unsure. There will be a $25 late fee applied to all payments received after 6 pm on Thursday the week before your child attends camp.
Care4Kids applications can be found on the Care4Kids website at www.CTcare4kids.com, or you may call them at 888-214-5437. The Boys & Girls Club does not provide Care4Kids applications. Parents/guardians must complete the Parent Provider Agreement before bringing it to us to complete our portion. When it is ready, we will call you to pick your form up so you can send it in. The Boys & Girls Club will not fax or mail any Care4Kids forms in. When registering, if you have not yet received your Child Care Certificate, the full tuition amount must be paid, and the full tuition amount must continue to be paid until the Child Care Certificate is received. When the Child Care Certificate is received, parents must contact Lisa Smith, Membership Coordinator, to discuss the balance they will be responsible for paying. Care4Kids does not cover the entire tuition, and parents will be responsible for the balance. If there are any reimbursements due to you for payments made while waiting for Care4Kids, reimbursement will be made after Care4Kids reimburses our Boys & Girls Club. Please be patient as this reimbursement could take several months.
Late Pickup Policy
Once the summer camp day ends, our staff leave the building. We rely on parents to pick their children up promptly. Should parents be late for any reason, there will be a $10 late fee if you arrive between 6:01-6:15, and an additional $5 will be charged every 15 minutes thereafter. This fee must be paid the next morning or the member will not be allowed to attend camp. No exceptions. Repeated violations could lead to termination of camp enrollment. Please see the Summer Camp Parent Handbook for complete policy.
Breakfast and lunch are provided free of charge. Club Sandwich in our Food Court also operates daily for those who wish to purchase lunch at the Club. Campers may also bring their own food from home; please label all your child's belongings with first and last names. Please note we are not a peanut free facility. All campers are required to complete the Meal Form, which can be downloaded by clicking the image above.
Though our staffers are certified in first aid and CPR, we do not administer medications of any kind. We will, however, make reasonable accommodations for a parent or guardian to come administer any medication that may not be self administered by your child. We must know of any medications your child takes, even at home, in case of emergency. This includes sensitivities or allergies. If your child needs to self administer any type of medication, such as an epi pen or inhaler, a completed Authorization for the Administration of Medicine form, signed by the doctor and with approval for meds to be self administered checked off must be submitted with the medication. Children requiring these medicines may not attend without one of these completed forms. This form may be obtained from Jen DeLeon, Unit Director, and it must also be returned to Jen. Please note that we are not a peanut-free facility.
We will offer trips throughout our summer camp. All trips are optional and require permission slips. Our Special Event calendar will be available prior to the start of camp with the complete schedule and cost for each trip. Once camp begins, our website will also have the most up-to-date trip information. Check frequently throughout the summer for additions and changes.
Shelton Summer School Van
We will be providing transportation to Shelton members attending the 2014 Summer Learning Program offered by Shelton Public Schools. Vans will pick your child up at Perry Hill School and bring them to our Clubhouse. Though this service is free, you must register for it when registering your child.
