Our Day Camp Teaches & uses the Six Pillars of Character Daily:
The Six Pillars of Character is a framework for teaching good character and is composed of six ethical values (characteristics) everyone can agree upon: Trustworthiness; Respect; Responsibility; Fairness; Caring; and Citizenship. Each of the six-character traits are used within our CHARACTER COUNTS, a program to help instill a positive learning environment for students and a “culture of kindness” making camps & schools a safe environment for students to learn.
CDCUSA is a Member of the Character Counts Coalition: The Six Pillars of Character values are not political, religious, or culturally biased. In fact, every year since 1995 our program has been officially recognized and endorsed by the U.S. Senate and The President of the United States. See more at https://charactercounts.org/program-overview/six-pillars

AUTHORIZATION-ACKNOWLEDGMENT YOU’RE ENROLLING YOUR CHILD INTO A WALK UP- DAY CAMP. SIGN IN/OUT OPTIONAL NOT REQUIRED BY PARENT UNLESS THE BOX IS CHECK ON YOUR CHILDS HEALTH HISTORY FORM!
This allows a Parent to pull up, waive make eye contact with staff and child is released meet parent at the car Staff then sign out for the parent. (optional) Or if the child is old enough child may walk home. (not recommended but and option)
Authorization & Acknowledgement Form REQUIRED. All YOUTH sign them self in and out of camp each day as they arrive and depart camp. With that said upon request Parents have the option to sign their child in and out of camp each day. See Acknowledgement Form for more details (This is not required). Part of the camp learning environment is the independent process teaching your child responsibility. While we encourage Parents to pick up and drop off their child from the pickup/drop off location it is not required. This is a travel camp.
Once the bus departs there is no staff present as they leave with the trip. DON’T BE LATE.
Camp is running on the Buddy system no child will be alone and must be in a group of 3 or more size groups. Groups can change daily. It is up to your child who they hang with during the trips. Once a group is established for that day they are required to stay with the group until check in. Then the child has the option to change groups. Your child will check in with staff while on the trip and will not be forced to be in large groups.
(Child choice) They will have the freedom using the buddy system to make choices on what rides and slides they go on. If a child does not have a group, they will be encouraged to join a group. If they still choose not to use the buddy system, they are welcome to hang with the staff person assigned. Safety is a priority, again no child can be alone while on a trip or during camp hours.
If the child demonstrates they cannot be in a group or are a behavior problem they will lose the option of free choice and will be assigned a staff member to hang with that day.
Discipline Problems will result in Suspension from camp. (NO REFUNDS for suspensions or absences due to illness or injury. All fees paid have been and used in pre-paid CDCUSA contracts. Passes, busses, employees etc.).
