Here’s what you can expect!
WHO CAN JOIN?
Club Kare is open to children entering the 1st thru 6th grade in the 2023-2024 school year. Children who are not currently part of our Kare Youth League or Pearl Prep programs are welcome to apply, they will just need to submit a copy of their most recent report card during the application process. All Applications are subject to review.
Club Kare will be open June 5 – July 21 this summer.
Here are a few changes to this year’s program:
- We will only be open 7 weeks this summer instead of 10.
- Lunches will NOT be included in the price of the camp this year. Campers need to bring their own lunches this year. We will have a sack lunch program available for those who want lunches provided each day for an additional fee of $20 per week or $5 per day. Campers will need to sign up for those lunches two weeks in advance or pay the $5 per day fee.
- We will continue to provide morning and afternoon snacks.
- All children will need to be picked up at Rio Hondo Prep. We will not be doing a daily shuttle to Kare Park.
START OF EACH DAY – We will start each day altogether next to the flag pole and fountain area at 8:50AM for morning camp songs, flag salute and announcements. Please be sure all students are checked in and ready to participate by then! They won’t want to miss the legendary camp songs and cheers performed by our very own Eric Mosher every day! Classes will start immediately after the flag salute and announcements. Please be on time!
ELECTRONIC GEAR IS NOT ALLOWED – This includes personal tablets, cell phones, laptops and more. Club Kare is NOT responsible for those who abuse this rule and end up with broken gear. This is a summer to get away from those computer screens and remember what it’s like to be a kid again with fun indoor and outdoor activities! With that said, we will be using Chromebooks and learning computer skills during our classroom activities, especially during our engineering and robotics weeks when they will learn some programming skills. Children will not be allowed to “surf the web” or make their fun tik tok videos at any time during the day.
COMMUNICATION WITH REMIND APP – Club Kare will be using the REMIND app for communications. It will include news and events, a weekly newsletter, changes to schedules and more. We will send the link out to those who register. Parents can send messages to staff through the Remind App if they have questions. You may also contact us through email at [email protected] or call our phone number 1-800-434-7671. If you need to speak in person with our staff, please make an appointment through our email or cell number and we will be happy to discuss any questions or concerns you may have.
PLEASE BRING A SACK LUNCH – We are not offering the same lunch program as we did last year. We ask all children to bring their own sack lunches each day. We will continue to provide morning and afternoon snacks. The snack machine will also be available for those who would like to purchase snacks. Please note: we are not responsible for any money your child loses.
PARENTAL CHAPERONES – We appreciate all the parents who want to volunteer as chaperones to help make Club Kare a success. However, we are not using parent volunteers to chaperone outings this year. We have a trained staff ready to provide an amazing program for your children. For the safety of all our children we also ask that parents do not meet us at outing locations. Thank you for your understanding and we look forward to providing the best/safest program for all the children in our program.
MEDICATIONS – ALL HEALTH FORMS MUST BE SUBMITTED PRIOR TO YOUR ATTENDANCE, INCLUDING POLICY NUMBERS, EMERGENCY CONTACT INFO & A LIST OF CURRENT MEDICATIONS. If your child has allergic reactions and requires an EpiPen please be sure to give it directly to our staff along with any additional instructions. Also, if your child has asthma and requires the use of an inhaler, please be sure to make a note of that on your Health Form and provide a functioning inhaler to our staff. We will keep all medication in a secure location with quick access for emergency purposes. Please be sure all medication is up to date. When you click on the link below to begin filling out the forms all your personal data is kept secure with the latest in encryption. Your medical data is never sent through email. If you are more comfortable filling out these forms in person on your first day of attendance you may do that as well. Paper forms will be available when you arrive.
ADDITIONAL REQUIRED FORMS – Once your child is enrolled in Club Kare, we still need a few more forms to complete the application process. Please fill out the following forms prior to your first day of attendance:
1) The Club Kare Health Form
2) The Kare Youth League Concussion Information Sheet
3) The Kare Youth League Insurance Waiver
Click on the link below to sign all three forms electronically:
