The location for the camp is at the Brookline High School Main Gym facility located at 66 Tappan Street. The gym is located on the second floor.
CHECK IN & CHECK OUT
All children must be checked in and out every day. Checking in requires that you let the camp director know that your child has arrived each morning and the name/s of the possible person/s who will pick your child up that day, and checking out requires that the pick up person informs the camp director who they are and which child/children they are taking home: we do this so that we know exactly who every child has gone home with each day. If the possible person/s who is due to pick up your child changes throughout the day we require that you contact us (tel. 508-358-5066) and let us know the name of the new pick up person/s.
Please note that we will not allow children to go home with friends or anyone other than the person/s named on that mornings check in sheet unless you contact us and give your permission at some point during the day. If you wish your child to come to and/or leave camp alone we must have written permission.
Your child will then be responsible for reporting to the camp director at arrival and departure time to check in and out. Please note that parents have the right to review our discipline policies as well as background reviews of our staff, health care policies and grievance procedures.
