The Parent Pack includes a Checklist for what to bring.
Drive all the way to the back of the property to the Jacomo Day Camp shelter house. A Day Camp Counselor will meet you on the parking lot to have you sign your child in. If, for any reason, your child’s name does not show up on the Attendance Sheet for that week, you will have to go into the Kemper office before you can drop your child off at the shelter house. Please allow 10 or 15 minutes to complete the sign-in process, especially on Mondays.
Please notify the Kemper office 816-229-8980, ext. 101, and your child’s camper in advance so that your child is not away on a field trip or other activity when you arrive. You can also email us this notice the previous day.
Complete the Medication Request and Authorization Form in your Parent Pack. Submit it TWO WEEKS BEFORE YOUR CHILD ATTENDS CAMP. On the first day of camp, bring your child’s medication to the Kemper office. It should be in the original bottle with the original label. Please pick up any leftover medications from the Kemper office on Friday.
Please note that we do not have a Camp Nurse on staff. We can only accommodate simple medication requests. Any leftover medication that has not been claimed by September will be turned into the local law enforcement agency for disposal.
Children signed up for extended hours should be picked up by 5:45 p.m. and there is a $1 per minute late charge after that. If you are late picking up your child past 6 p.m. or later you will be asked to remove him from the day camp. We do not have personnel on staff after that time to be responsible for campers. If there is an emergency, call 816-229-8980, ext. 101, to let us know you are running late.
If your child is signed up for regular hours, he/she should be picked up between 3:45 and 4 p.m. Please do not pick your camper up before 3:45 so that he/she can participate in closing ceremonies (with announcements and reminders). Picking your child up after 4 p.m. will incur the $1 per minute late charge or the fee for extended hours. In an emergency, call 816-229-8980 to let us know you are running late.
Be sure to list everyone on your Ride Authorization Form that might pick up your child in an emergency. They will need to show a picture ID when picking up your child. We cannot accept emailed or called in additions to the ride authorization list.
If you must call us with an emergency add-on, we will call you back on 1 or more of the phone numbers you have listed on your child’s Camper Information Form to verify your identity.
