Additional Information

Enrollment/Withdrawal Policy

ENROLLMENT

Registration is accepted pending space availability in the requested session as there is a maximum number of participants, which varies per sport, session and program. AHN reserves the right to cancel a session and refund payments to participants if the session does not meet the minimum participant requirement.

WITHDRAWAL

Any participant withdrawing prior to May 30, 2017 will be assessed a 25% withdrawal fee. No refunds will be given on or after June 1, 2017.

What You Should Bring Each Day to Camp

  1. Water, water bottle
  2. Towel, bathing suit (if applicable). Full-day Camp Jaguar participants should bring a dry swimsuit for the afternoon session.
  3. Sun block!
  4. Snack (Please pay attention to the allergy section of this document when packing snacks.) Please send one snack for the morning and one for the afternoon, if applicable.
  5. Lunch (Full-day campers only, if your child is not buying lunch through EVOS.)
  6. Any medications your camper might need during the day. (Please complete the over-the-counter medication authorization form and/or allergy form and allergy action plan.)
  7. Pre-K3 and 4 full-day campers should bring a blanket or towel to rest on and any other item they like for rest time on Monday of each week. The items will be sent home each Friday.

Drop-Off and Pick-Up Procedures

CAMP HOURS:

Morning supervision begins at 8:45 a.m. and afternoon supervision ends at 4:15 p.m. Pick-up for half-day morning sessions, including athletic camps, concludes at 12:30 p.m.

Arrival Times: If you are not utilizing Early Bird, campers should be dropped off between 8:45-9:00 a.m. for morning camps and 12:45-1:00 p.m. for afternoon camps.

Note: Extended care is available before and after the scheduled supervision times at no cost.

Early Bird hours are Monday-Friday from 7:30-8:45 a.m. in the Brady Center.
*There will be no supervision before 7:30 a.m.; please do not drop off your child earlier than 7:30 a.m.

Aftercare hours are Monday-Friday from 4:15-5:30 p.m. in the Brady Center.

* Please plan to be at the Brady Center promptly. We will charge an additional fee of $1.00 per minute if a child is sitting in aftercare after 5:30 p.m.

Please be prompt at pick-up time, and use the appropriate spaces or lanes if you arrive early. Any participants not picked up by 4:15 p.m. will become part of the Extended Care Program. Any Extended Care Program participant not picked up by 5:30 p.m. will be assessed $1 per minute.

DROP-OFF/PICK-UP LOCATIONS:

In an effort to help create a fluid and safe pick-up environment for the Summer on Bayshore camps, we would like to provide you with a more detailed description of how the 12:00 p.m. and 4:00 p.m. pick-ups run. This procedure is very similar to the process used during the school year.

Click here to view a diagram showing that there are four lanes of transportation. The nearest three lanes to the Brady Center are labeled as "Stacking Lanes." The farthest lane is labeled as "Keep this Lane Open." Please adhere to these labels. When you come to campus, pull in as far as you can and fill the three lanes labeled "Stacking Lanes." Please stay in your car and keep moving forward slowly until you are stopped at the "Pick-up Area" lines. The lines look like a cross walk, and there will be camp personnel there to radio for your child. The "Pick-up Area" is just past the Brady Center, right before you turn back to exit onto MacDill. It is very important that we keep the fourth lane (farthest from the Brady Center) open. The dismissal process is simple and effective. The moment you come to the pick-up lines, our camp personnel will radio for your child and your child will be walked to your car.

Please note the following important instructions:

  • Please do not show up early for pick-up. If you show up early, the traffic on MacDill will get obstructed. You will then be asked to circle the block.
  • Pick-up for athletics is 12:00 p.m.
  • Pick-up for half day Camp Jaguar and enrichments is 12:00 p.m.
  • Afternoon pick-up for all other camps is 4:00 p.m.
  • Please stay in your car. We will bring your child to you. This procedure will keep the line moving and make it a safer environment for all involved.
  • Please drive slowly and cautiously through all lanes of traffic.

As we are strongly committed to the safety of all, a security guard will be posted to ensure that the important instructions listed above are followed.

LATE ARRIVALS

If you drop off your child after 9:00 a.m. for morning sessions or after 1:00 p.m. for afternoon sessions, please drop off at the front entrance of the Academy, which is on Bayshore Blvd. The MacDill gates will be locked when camp begins.

Athletics Drop-Off and Pick-Up Procedures

DROP-OFF/PICK-UP FOR ATHLETICS CAMPS:

  • Campers should be dropped off on our athletic campus each morning between 8:30 and 9:00 a.m. Check-in will take place in the gym lobby. We recommend that campers are walked into the gym each morning.
    • If you are utilizing the early bird drop-off in the Brady Center, a representative from our AHN Athletic Camps will walk campers across the bridge each morning at 8:45 a.m. Please note that early bird drop-off does not begin until after 7:30 a.m.
  • Campers should be picked up in the gymnasium lobby area between 12:00 and 12:30 p.m. Please note that the following is a change from previous summers: This year’s pick-up procedure for the athletic campus requires our camper’s rides to retrieve them from the gymnasium lobby area at the conclusion of the session. This procedure is being implemented for your child’s safety as we do not want campers wandering into our parking garage during this busy time.
    • Campers who will be participating in a Summer on Bayshore afternoon session will be walked across the bridge by an AHN Athletic Camps representative.

Exceptions:

  • Participants in the ALL IN flag football camp must be picked up between 11:00-11:30 a.m.
  • Participants in the high school volleyball session should arrive between 12:30-1:00 p.m. and be picked up between 4:00-4:30 p.m.

Food Options, Ordering Lunch and Allergy Policy

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.

LUNCH OPTIONS

Campers may order lunch daily or weekly from EVOS. Please click here for additional information and ordering instructions.

SNACKS/ALLERGIES

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.

Transfer Between Camps

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 CAMPS

For 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.

Camp Attire

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.


SWIMMING

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 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:
  1. Swim suit
  2. Towel
  3. 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.
  4. Change of clothes
  5. 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.

Field Trips

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.

Behavior

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.

Contact Info and Additional Forms

Please direct camp questions or concerns to Director of Summer Camps Cheryl Conlan via email.

Questions relating to athletics camps may be directed to Athletic Director Kevin Vargas via email or at 813.839.5371, ext. 320.
