WHAT IF MY CHILD IS SICK?

If your child becomes sick at camp, we will contact you immediately. We cannot accept children at camp if they’re ill. Please let us know if they have recently had an illness or condition in case they are still infectious. If a child requires medication while at camp, please supply it in a well-labelled container and sign a medical consent form.

Our Camp Counselors all have CPR and First Aid training so are equipped to deal with accidents and illnesses.

WHAT IF MY CHILD CARRIES AN EPI-PEN?

Barracuda Kids Camp Counselors hold a current First Aid and CPR so are trained to administer an Epi-Pen in an emergency situation. Parents must inform the camp if their child carries an Epi-Pen and fill in the medical consent form.

The Camp Counselor will ensure the Epi-Pen is with your child at all times.

MY CHILD HAS A SPECIFIC MEDICAL CONDITION. DO I NEED TO TELL YOU?

Yes – please tell us anything we need to know about your child’s health when you make your booking.

In some cases we may need to send you some more forms and get additional information from you about your child’s needs. The more information you provide us with the better quality of care we can provide for your child. 

If your child needs medication at camp, you must let the staff know and complete a medical consent form.

WHAT SHOULD I DO IF MY CHILD HAS LEFT THEIR BELONGINGS AT CAMP?

Please make sure all of your children’s belongings are clearly labeled with their name on it. this makes it easier for staff to identify any lost items and ensure that they are returned to immediately.

If you realize your child has misplaced an item please let our staff know so we can try to locate it. Lost property items will be displayed in the registration area. Please check this area at drop off/pick up time.

We are not responsible for any items left at camp

WHAT SHOULD MY CHILD BRING?

All Children registered in Barracuda Kids Camp will need to have running shoes, comfortable clothes, water bottle, lunch and two snacks (ALL NUT FREE), sun hat and sunscreen. Please ensure all items are labeled with your child’s name.

We recommend children wear comfortable clothing and closed toe footwear. Children will be involved in activities like outdoor sports, art and crafts and water play.

If you child will be doing an activity such as archery we will let you know what clothing he/she may require (long sleeves etc.)

Please provide and apply sunscreen each morning. Counselors and staff will remind children at to re-apply sunscreen and help younger ones if needed.

All food must be NUT FREE and as we cannot guarantee the school will have a fridge, please ensure the lunch has a ice pack in to keep the contents cold until lunchtime.

We provide all the equipment necessary for all the activities, from balls to tennis rackets, so there’s no need to send your children with anything other than packed lunch, additional clothes, sunscreen, water etc.

We strongly advise that children DO NOT bring any electronics such as cell phones, watches, iPads etc. to camp. We cannot accept responsibility if they are lost or stolen. There is no need for children to bring any money to camp as there is nothing for sale to purchase.

WHAT IF MY CHILD HAS DIFFICULTY SETTLING AT CAMP?

You’ll be amazed at how much your child’s confidence will grow at Barracuda Kids Multi Sport and Activity Camp!

Some children are very shy at the start camp, but by the end of their first day they are having fun and they can’t wait to come back!

Please let our staff know if your child is shy or worried about coming to a new setting, and we will let your child’s Camp Counselor know.

Our Counselors have experience working with children in a recreational setting and are eager to help them settle into camp.

If your child doesn’t settle in at camp on their first day, please let us know and we can try to resolve any problems related to your child not settling.

For your further reassurance, if this is your child’s first visit to Barracuda Kids, and if they’re still not happy on the second day of camp, and doesn’t wish to return we will refund the remaining days of camp with no cancellation fee.
