DROP-OFF/PICK-UP FOR ATHLETICS CAMPS:

Each morning at 8:30 a.m. as well as each afternoon at the conclusion of our camp offerings, we will have a representative of our athletic camps either directing our athletic campers across the bridge or assisting with pick-up.
Participants attending the full-day Camp Jaguar or a morning and afternoon session on the same day shall pack a lunch, drink and snack. All other participants shall pack a snack and drink.
Please check back for options to purchase lunch.
There are a number of children at AHN with serious peanut allergies. Any food items sent to school for sharing (e.g. for birthday, class parties, special events, etc.) may not contain peanuts or any other tree nuts (e.g. sesame seeds, pecans, almonds, walnuts, etc.). This includes all products containing nuts, traces of nuts and nut byproducts (peanut oil, peanut flour, hydrolyzed vegetable protein, etc.). Most food products are clearly labeled and state “may contain nuts or traces of peanuts.” By following this procedure, we hope to avoid any chance of cross-contamination.
Campers may bring items from home that contain peanuts or tree nuts for their personal snack or lunch. If your child brings in such items, please remind him or her not to share food with anyone. Students who have an allergy to peanut products will not be seated at the same tables as those students who are eating items containing those ingredients.*If your camper has food allergies, please complete the allergy form and allergy action plan.
When dressing for camp, please remember that campers will be both inside and outside. Please dress appropriately for the weather.
DRESS CODE - GENERAL
Appropriate attire is expected for all participants, respective of their session. The basic attire should be a T-shirt, shorts or pants and sneakers or closed-toed shoes. Participants should not wear short-shorts, midriff shirts or revealing outfits. Camp Jaguar participants must bring swim gear (swimsuit, towel and spray-on sunscreen) daily.
DRESS CODE - SPORTS SESSIONS
All sports participants should be dressed prepared to practice in the respective sport. Participants should wear shorts, a T-shirt and have proper athletic shoes. Tennis players must bring their own racquet and lacrosse players must bring their own stick. For those sessions where the pool will be used, a swimsuit, towel and spray-on sunscreen should be brought daily.
Although we would like each child prepared to enter the pool immediately when they come to campus, we know that this might not be possible. Ideally, and more specifically for the PK-3 and 4-year-olds, we would like the children to come to camp in with their bathing suits with a cover-up and sunscreen already applied. Campers will all need a change of clothes, including undergarments. These items should be in a gallon zip-lock bag with the child’s name on the outside, especially for the young ones (PK 3-4). All clothes, goggles and towels need to be labeled with your child’s name AND grade that they will be entering next year so we can return items to their owner.
Campers will be in the pool roughly one or two times a day, once in the morning and once in the afternoon (full-day campers). Please bring the following items each day if your camper is not dressed-and-ready to jump in the pool:
- Swim suit
- Sun screen--lots of it! Typically we will keep their sunscreen at camp for the week, labeled with your child’s name, so that we are sure he/she is properly protected.
- Change of clothes
- If your child has floaters or any type of assisted swim device, please have him/her bring that on the first day of camp. We can keep that device in the classroom for the week.
Anyone* may attend our field trips! There is no additional fee for campers who are full-day participants in Camp Jaguar. Campers who are not full-day Camp Jaguar participants may attend the field trip of the week for an additional charge of $30.00. This charge pays for the event, transportation and supervision. This fee does not pay for food.
If your camper would like to attend the field trip and will need to pay the additional fee, the camp director must receive written confirmation no later than 24 hours BEFORE the field trip. On the morning of the field trip, you must present a check for $30.00 made out to AHN, along with the signed field trip waiver form.
We leave for field trips from the Brady Center no later than 9:45 a.m. Each child must be accounted for no later than 9:30 a.m. IN THE BRADY CENTER. Although each field trip is different, we plan to be back at AHN by 2:30 p.m. Students are to be picked up during normal pick-up at 4:00 p.m. in the Brady Center. Normal rules for Aftercare apply if a parent is not present at the designated time.
PK3 & 4 campers do not apply to this rule as they do not travel on field trips. Please contact the camp director with any questions.
WHEN YOU HAVE TWO ENRICHMENTS
When campers are enrolled in two enrichment courses, or Camp Jaguar and an enrichment course, we plan for you to be here all day—this includes the hour of lunch. Campers are not permitted to leave campus without parental permission and notifying the camp director or assistant camp director. Camp role call is taken at the beginning and end of lunch, for drop-off and pick-up purposes, as well as check-in for the next activity.
TRAVELING BETWEEN CAMP JAGUAR/ENRICHMENTS & ATHLETIC CAMPSFor those students traveling between a morning athletic camp to an afternoon Camp Jaguar or an enrichment course: Campers will be walked across the bridge by an athletic staff member and directed to the Brady Center for lunch.
For those students traveling between a morning enrichment/Camp Jaguar to an afternoon athletic camp: Campers will be walked across the bridge by a faculty/staff member and directed to the gymnasium to be checked in.
All participants are expected to behave appropriately at all times while in the care of the Academy of the Holy Names personnel. Any behavior issues will be addressed with the participant, and if deemed necessary, the parent(s) and/or guardian(s). If the inappropriate behavior continues, and the behavior is deemed serious enough by our faculty/staff, we will immediately withdraw the child from the summer program without refund. Parents/guardians will be phoned and expected to pick up the child immediately.
In order to attend camp at AHN, campers are required to be able to visit the lavatory without assistance from a camp counselor. If a camper has three accidents at camp during any length of time, the camper will be asked to return after he/she is able to visit the lavatory without assistance. AHN will not provide a refund for camp fees.
Catering services will be an option for campers but has yet to be determined.
