Goals & Objectives
Our camps provide children with a safe, secure and fun environment throughout the week(s). The array of activities as well as the variety will encourage self- esteem, physical and emotional and intellectual growth, positive social skills, problem solving, skills and creativity and fit classes for physical fitness.
To provide a trusting atmosphere where children are encouraged to pursue their own interests, develop friendships, gain self-confidence, become more independent, and become more respectful of themselves and others. To provide the highest quality day camp programs where parents feel confident that their child is safe, healthy and happy during their vacation break.

You may call at any time and leave a message on the voicemail. If your child misses camp for any reason, they do not make up the days missed and there are no refunds.
CHILD GUIDANCE AND RELATED POLICIES
Club Fit Camp Staff provide children with guidelines for appropriate behavior and rules to follow while enrolled at camp. We encourage positive actions through positive reinforcement and close supervision. Our main goal is to keep the children safely involved in activities so the inappropriate behavior is limited. The following steps are followed if inappropriate behavior occurs. Special modifications may be made to adapt to a child’s needs. If your child has an Individualized Educational Plan (IEP), it is beneficial to inform the Director of your child’s special needs so that modifications can be implemented.
- The child is spoken to privately in a firm but gentle manner regarding the behavior.
- If the said behavior continues, the child is removed from the activity for a cool down until both the counselor and child feel ready to return.
- If the said behavior still continues, the child will be directed into a different activity area for a period of time to be determined by the leader.
- If the said behavior still continues, the child’s parent will be called or spoken with before departing for the day.
- A behavior report will be filed any time a child receives a cool down.
- An incident report will be filed when there is evidence of property destruction, injury to an individual, forcefully touching an individual, foul language, and other inappropriate behavior on a constant basis.
- Three incident reports during your child’s stay at camp will result in suspension from the camp. The fourth incident report will result in two day suspension and the fifth incident report will result in termination of service from camp.
- A child may be terminated from camp without prior notice to the parents under the following conditions:
- A child injures another individual requiring medical attention.
- A child displays violent, uncontrollable behavior that will put others in the program at risk.
**No child will be suspended from camp without the consent of the Director of Children’s Activities. All efforts will be made to work with the parents and children on all behavior issues. All incident reports are reviewed and initiated by a camp staff person before a parent is notified.
**Behavior incidents will never be dealt with in a demoralizing, humiliating, or abusive manner. No child shall be subject to abuses of neglect, cruel, unusual, severe or corporal punishment including: punishments which subject a child to verbal abuse, ridicule, humiliation, denial of food, use of bathroom facilities, punishment for soiling, wetting, or not using the toilet.
**Staff members shall not be subject to verbal or physical abuse by a child enrolled in camp, or by their parent, including but not limited to, cruelty, humiliation, foul language and ridicule.
Equipment Replacement Policy
If a child breaks or damages WC property (toys, games, swimming pool, rock climbing wall, furniture, doors, windows, etc) through the improper use, the Director of Children’s Activities will meet with the parents and decide upon the following consequence:
- The child will purchase replacement item.
- The child will replace the item with something similar from home.
- The item is sent home for repair.
Prevention of Child Neglect and Abuse
All children who attend camp shall be protected from abuse and neglect. Any suspected case of abuse or neglect will be reported in writing with factual information and observation from camp staff to the Director of Children’s Activities immediately. All cases of abuse or neglect will then be reported to the Department of Children and Families immediately. Camp staff is mandated by the State of New Hampshire to report any suspicion of abuse or neglect to the Department of Children and Families. Club Fit Day Camps will cooperate in all investigations of abuse and neglect by identifying parents of children currently or previously enrolled in the camp programs to any allegations and protection of the child or children.
Any staff member who is under investigation will be removed from direct care responsibilities until the Department of Children and Families investigation is complete. If the investigation proves that the complaint is valid, the staff member will be dismissed immediately.

In fact, if you bring your child to camp sick or they become ill while in attendance, we will send them home with a parent/guardian or an authorized pick up person listed on your enrollment form without a credit, make up day or refund.

The symptoms of influenza (flu) include fever, cough, sore throat, and sometimes body aches, headache, chills and feeling tired. Some people also have diarrhea and vomiting. The most important thing that you can do to keep flu from spreading in the camp community is to keep your sick child at home.
If you suspect your child to be sick or exposed to the flu consider below:
Does your child have a cough, fever, sore throat? If yes, please consider keeping your child home until symptoms disappear.
Does Your child have a headache, body-ache or chills? Please keep child home atleast a day and recheck after 24 hours.
Head Lice Policy
There are a few issues that can derail camp fun quicker than an outbreak of head lice. Panic sets in, fingers start pointing and although no camp is truly safe from head lice, we expect that our parents will question if our camp was the right decision for their children if an outbreak occurs. We encourage parents to visit websites such as http://www.licesolutions.org to gain valuable knowledge and strategies in preventing, identifying and treating head lice. Inform us if anyone in the household has been or being treated for head lice leading up to camp. Do not bring your child to camp until you have written and signed physician clearance to do so after your child has been treated for head lice or exposed.
What we will do:
If we discover head lice on a camper, we will notify the parent advising them to immediately respond to us to take the camper home for treatment and evaluation. The camper will not be allowed to remain in camp. They will be isolated away from the other campers until the parent can pick them up. We will not treat them for head lice. We are not equipped nor staffed for the tedious and arduous process of treating head lice properly. Head lice must be treated immediately, therefore it is imperative that parents remove the child for treatment. We will thoroughly clean and treat necessary areas within the club with proper pesticides within 24 hours of head lice discovery. We will also monitor campers watching for additional outbreaks.
Swimming Pool and Lessons
Campers are scheduled for daily swimming lessons and open swim. Children will be grouped appropriately according to ability with some children swimming in the family pool and some children swimming in the lap pool for lessons with our American Red Cross Water Safety Instructors. Following lessons, all children will proceed to the family pool and Splash Park for open swim. Swimming lessons are taught without flotation according to the American Red Cross Learn-to-Swim standards. Please assist us by encouraging your camper to participate in the swimming program. Please cooperate with us by excusing your child from the swimming program for medical reasons only and notify the Director. Swimming is an important skill to keep your child safe near water. If your child misbehaves during swim class by yelling, answering back, being disruptive or physically hurting anyone, they will be removed from class without open swim afterwards.
