Sign in and Arrival
All campers must be signed IN and OUT by an ADULT every day. If your child will be being picked up by a non guardian or another parent who is not on your account, please inform us at drop-off.
During drop-off and pick-up, please be mindful of traffic on Frederick Street and considerate of our neighbors. Please pull all the way into the white zone if dropping off at curbside, and do not make U-turns in the middle of the block or block our neighbors’ driveways.
You can either walk your child into the building, or utilize Curbside Drop Off (see more in “Curbside Drop Off” tab to the left). If you are walking your child in, please do NOT park in the white zone out front, and be sure you sign your child in for the day, either with the coach out front at curbside, or in the office if you are arriving after 9:05 am. **For 2021, please also be sure you are wearing a mask as you do this!
Please note there is street cleaning on our side of Frederick Street on Tuesday mornings, 8-10am. You can be ticketed even if you are standing right next to your car, so it is highly advisable to comply with all parking restrictions.
Curb Side Drop Off
For your convenience, we offer Curbside drop-off for your campers at the white zone in front of AcroSports from 8:45-9:00am Monday thru Friday.
If you arrive for camp after 9:05am, you will need to escort your child into the building and locate your child’s coach to sign-in . Please make sure that your child puts their belongings in a designated downstairs locker before locating their group. *For 2021, please remember to wear a mask at all times while in the building.
**PLEASE NOTE that due to COVID safety restrictions, Before Care will NOT be available in Summer 2021, though we hope to be able to resume this in future Camp sessions.
We offer Before Care 8am-9am Monday-Friday. This is an hour of supervised free play before the start of camp. Before Care is generally offered by the week, but if a given week isn’t fully enrolled, drop-ins by the day are available with advance notice.
Medication: Inhalers, Epipens, etc
Any allergy meds, inhalers, or other medications your child needs should be given to the curbside coach. Please put all needed items in a ziploc bag or other container with the child’s name clearly written on it, along with dosage instructions.
You will need to fill out an authorization form for any medication you drop off that may end up having to be administered by AcroSports personnel.
Any special health concerns your child may have that may affect their ability to participate fully in our program should be reported at the time of registration, but please also check in with camp staff during Monday drop-off to clarify the nature and restrictions of the health concern.
- A hearty breakfast so campers have energy for an active day.
- Please pack a “double” lunch! A day at AcroCamp is far more active than a day at school, and campers get hungry, so really go BIG on lunch!
- A snack for mid-morning snack time.
- Clothing appropriate for a day of physical activity - sweats/yoga pants & Ts, etc, and NO jeans (they get caught on/tear gym equipment) - with long hair tied back and no jewelry.
- A change of clothes in case of accidents for those children still in that age range.
- Water bottle labeled with your child’s name. **Note that for 2021, students will NOT be able to use the drinking fountains, and the Big Top Shop will be closed, so this bottle is a necessity! Our bottle-refilling station of purified water WILL be available for refills.
- A warm jacket, pants, and closed-toe street shoes for our lunch outdoors - it is usually pretty chilly in this neighborhood in summer, so pack accordingly.
- Campers may bring books or cards for quiet time activities but please NO iPhones, iPads, or other electronic games.
Curb Side Pick Up
Curbside pick-up is 3 - 3:15pm Monday through Thursday. We do not offer curbside pick-up on Friday because of the end-of-camp show! ** Note that for 2021, curbside pick-up IS available on Fridays as we are currently not planning to hold end-of-camp shows.
PLEASE call the office if you have an emergency or will not be able to pick up your child on time. If you arrive after 3:15 pm your child will be escorted into our office where they can wait for you. A late fee of $1 per minute fee will be charged for any child picked up after 3:20 pm.
After Care - For Campers 6 years or older.
**PLEASE NOTE that due to COVID safety restrictions, After Care will NOT be available in Summer 2021, though we hope to be able to resume this in future Camp sessions.
After Care is available from 3pm – 5:30pm Monday-Thursday. There is no AfterCare on Fridays due to the end-of-camp show, where family can enjoy the performance their camper has worked hard on perfecting all week.
Generally, students enroll in After Care for the entire week, though daily attendance may be available if a particular week’s After Care is not fully enrolled. Check with a coach at drop-off or give the office a call during the day of the needed After Care to see if there is room for a drop-in.
Campers staying for After Care should be sure to have an additional afternoon snack packed in their lunch, or money available to purchase one from the Big Top Shop (parents can also contact the office to purchase “credit” for snacks). Remember that campers will have been engaged in a lot of physical activity for the day and WILL be hungry, guaranteed! That extra snack is vital for After Care.
AfterCare campers must be picked up by 5:30pm. A $1 per minute fee is charged for any child pick up that happens after 5:30pm. In the event that you are running unavoidably late, please call our office to alert us to this fact and we can inform your child that you are on your way.
If your child is enrolled in After Care, but you are planning to pick them up during curbside pickup instead (3-3:15 pm) on a given day, please let us know in the morning so we can have your camper packed up and ready to go at the time of curbside.
The Big Top Shop!
**PLEASE NOTE that due to COVID safety restrictions, the Big Top Shop will be closed in Summer 2021. Please make sure your camper will have enough to eat for the day, as we won’t have any snacks available to fill in the hunger gaps.
We have snacks available for purchase in our office! You can send your camper with cash, or you can add money to their account and they can purchase snacks by giving us their name. (To add “BTS” funds to your account, you can pay at the office, or call/email firstname.lastname@example.org and we can charge the credit card on file for $10 or more).
We sell healthy snacks like fruit gummies, granola bars, applesauce, goldfish, chocolate milk, juice and more! If you would prefer your child avoid any of these snacks, please inform your child's camp coach.
