Camp Policies

General

  • Campers are encouraged to bring a labeled water bottle to camp each day.
  • Valuables, toys, and games from home are strongly discouraged.
  • All personal belongings must be labeled.
  • TAU is not responsible for any items that are lost or stolen.
  • If an outdoor activity is planned, parents will be notified at least the day before and asked to put sunscreen on their children before coming to camp.

Drop Off/Pick Up

  • All parents/ guardians must sign children in on arrival and sign them out on departure as well as check in and out with the Camp Director or counselor in charge.
  • Children will not be released to any unauthorized person.
  • Children who are not picked up on time will wait in the front office under the supervision of the office staff until they are picked up.
  • Parents numbers and emergency numbers will be called if children are left more than 15 minutes after the end of camp.
  • For every 15 minutes children are left after the end of camp, a $10 charge will be billed.

Illness

  • If a child arrives noticeably ill, he/she will not be admitted for that day of camp.
  • If a child becomes ill during the camp, he/she will be taken to the office and will remain under adult supervision until a parent or authorized person arrives to take him/her home.
  • Parent and emergency phone numbers will be called when a child is brought to the office due to illness.
  • If it is discovered that a child has exposed other children to a communicable disease, parents will be notified and measures will be taken to minimize any potential future exposure or risk.

Medications

  • TAU staff will only administer prescription medications if written approval is left by both the parent and the prescribing doctor. Any prescription medication must be in its original container and labeled with the child’s name, physician’s name, distributing pharmacy, medication name and dosage.
  • Any nonprescription medication to be administered at the center such as Tylenol or cough syrup must be provided by a parent and be accompanied by written approval and instructions for use.
  • All medications will be held in the office.

Withdrawal from Camp

  • Once a camp has begun, a parent may withdraw a camper from camp at any time for any reason. All tuition is non-refundable.
  • A parent may submit a written request for a partial tuition refund in the event that unforeseeable circumstances arise such as extreme illness or family death, but the determination of whether a refund is issued or not is at the discretion of the administrator.
  • In the event that a child is recommended for removal by a camp instructor or counselor, the administrator will review the cause for recommendation, notify the parents and attempt alternate solutions to try whenever possible. In the event that it is determined that there is no other solution, the request may be made that the child not return to camp.

Camp Fees/Refunds

  • For each camp, there is a nonrefundable deposit of 25% of the camp fee.
  • In the event of a withdrawal from camp at least 2 weeks prior to the start date, an account credit will be
    issued for the amount paid, less the 25% deposit. This amount will be posted to your TAU account and
    can be used for any future camp or regular session class.
  • If you cancel a camp less than two weeks before the camp start date, no credit will be issued.
  • If you would like to transfer to a camp during the same session, 100% of your tuition would apply to the new camp, with the remaining balance (if any) in account credit. This transfer must to be done at the time of withdrawal from the old camp.
  • After the start of a camp, a parent may submit a written request for a partial tuition refund in the event that unforeseeable circumstances arise such as extreme illness or family death, but the determination of whether a refund is issued or not is at the discretion of the administrator.
