Summer Camp Information and Forms
We have a fun summer planned this year that will have your kid playing, learning and exploring. Each camp is designed with fun in mind and each camp is led by our trained staff.
The City of Rockville’s Summer Programs are self-regulated under the State Department of Health and Mental Hygiene and undergo periodic inspections. Our camp staff is trained in safety procedures, program planning, techniques in working with children, first aid, CPR and medication administration. References and criminal background checks are also part of the hiring process.
Here are some tips to get your summer started right:
Don't forget your forms. The Participant Health and Information Form is required on the first day of camp. If a participant must take prescription or nonprescription medication during program hours, including inhalers and EpiPens, a completed Medication Authorization Form is required.
Pack lunch and snacks. Campers must bring their own non-perishable lunch and snacks. Lunches should be clearly marked with the camper’s name. Microwaves and refrigerators are not available.
Don't forget a refillable water bottle. We will have plenty of refilling stations to stay hydrated.
Grab the sunscreen. Apply sunscreen at home in the morning and bring sunscreen each day for reapplication. Spray sunscreen is recommended. Sunscreen must be labeled with the camper’s name and in its original container.
Dress for the weather. Close-toed shoes are required. Sandals are only allowed on pool days.
Leave the valuables at home. We cannot be responsible for lost items so it's best to leave all electronics, jewelry and other valuables safely at home.
Inclement Weather and Cancellations
In the event of any program changes, parents will be notified. You may also call the Rec. Info Line at 240-314-5023 for updates.
Sign in/Sign Out Policy. Campers must be signed in/out daily. Only people listed on the Participant Health and Information Form may sign out campers. All authorized persons (including parents) are required to show ID. Campers who are eight years old and older may sign themselves out of the program with written parental permission. All campers must be signed into the program by an adult.
Late Pick Up Policy. Parent/guardian must be on time when picking up your child. In case of emergencies, it is important that you have listed all individuals authorized to pick up your child on the Participant Health and Information Form.
- First Time: First occurrence, the date and time will be documented.
- Second Time: The date and time will be documented, and a verbal/written reminder will be given.
- Three or More Times: Repeated infractions may result in your child’s suspension from the program.
Illness. To help prevent the spread of disease, we are not permitted to care for children who are ill. Please inform us if your child contracts a communicable disease such as COVID -19, measles, chickenpox, conjunctivitis (pink eye), influenza, etc.
Program modifications. If your camper is in need of special modifications, including accessible options complete the program modification form and submit it before the camp begins. To ensure we have time to provide the accommodation, submit the form early.
