What To Bring
We recommend your child be dressed for activity, wearing comfortable clothing & non-marking athletic shoes (no sandals or open-toed shoes). We recommend that campers bring a swim suit, towel, sunscreen and a water bottle packed in a gym bag. Campers should not bring any type of electronic device, including headphones, MP3 players, cell phones, or hand-held gaming devices. Parents are strongly encouraged to help their child pack for camp daily to ensure that inappropriate items are not brought to camp. Campers are required to bring their own lunch. There will be an opportunity to purchase food from the juice bar. Please have all materials labeled with your child’s name. The Healthy Herd™ Youth Camps are not responsible for lost or stolen personal items.
In accordance to our commitment to ethics and diversity, we believe that it is important that our campers act in a respectful manner towards each other and themselves as well. While we understand that children have a natural tendency to test the limits of compliance in many situations, we believe that there are certain standards that our campers must be held to. It is our goal to help develop our campers into people who have strong morals, are responsible, and treat others with respect. Inappropriate actions of campers will be handled in the following progressive fashion:
-Staff member will intervene immediately and discuss possible solutions to the problem with the camper
-Camp staff, camp director, and camper will discuss solutions to the problem
-Phone call to parents/guardian concerning the problem
-Camper is sent home
-If the camper’s actions are severe enough, the earlier stages of the behavior consequences list will be disregarded. Please read and sign the camper conduct agreement form and send it back to the Marshall Recreation Center.
Camp T-Shirts & Camper Identification
Healthy Herd™ Youth Camp t-shirts will be distributed as soon as possible. Although we encourage our campers to wear their shirts every day, it is not required. Additional shirts may be purchased at a cost of $12 through the camp office. All campers will be required to wear their camp wristband as identification throughout the entire week of camp.
Youth Facility Hours and Restrictions
Campus Recreation considers youth to be anyone 15 and under. All youth must be accompanied by an adult to enter the facility and must have a valid key tag or pay a guest fee. Members and guests age 16 – 17 years old ARE permitted to utilize the facility but ARE NOT permitted to sign their own waiver and must have a parent or guardian sign the waiver if one is required prior to entry.
Accidents & Injuries
Marshall Campus Recreation does not carry health or accident insurance for participants. It is recommended that all campers are required to have medical coverage prior to attending camp. In case of an emergency or accident involving your child, you will be contacted following notification of the appropriate emergency personnel. At the Healthy Herd™ Youth Camp, we make provisions to be certain that all campers will be as safe as possible. All Herd Leaders and Herd Organizers are certified in CPR and First Aid, and will provide initial emergency care when needed. Lifeguards will supervise for all aquatic activities. We provide and require campers to wear the safety equipment for applicable activities. For minor accidents or injuries, the camp staff will provide appropriate First Aid and provide the parent/guardian with a copy of the injury report form.
