2018/19 School’s Out Camps

When Eagle County Schools are out, WECMRD is in! Our 2018/19 School’s Out Camp schedule has been released. Our camps create a safe, nurturing environment that promotes self esteem, and provides youth opportunities to participate in a variety of developmentally positive lifelong leisure activities when Eagle County Schools are not in session.

Parents must fill out the state required forms annually. WECMRD must have completed forms before you can register your child. These are the same forms required for Rec Kids as well. State required forms here.

Questions?: Contact Karen Nolasco knolasco@wecmrd.org or 970.688.7329.

There will be a fee for late pick-up of your camper after 5:30pm. The fee is $1 per minute per child and this fee is due at the time of late pick-up. Any overdue fees will result in the child(ren) not being accepted into camp until it has been paid.

MEDICATIONS:
If your child needs to receive medication during Schools Out Camp, please complete the Medication Permission Form, available online at WECMRD.ORG or any WECMRD facility. This form must be signed by both a Parent as well as a Person with Prescriptive Authority (Medical Professional). All medicine must be kept in its original container and have a legible label stating the child’s name, directions for dosage, prescription number, name of medication, date filled and physician’s name. All unused medication will be returned to the parent/guardian at the end of each camp day, week or session. Medication must be given to the Camp Director or Lead Counselor at sign in. All medication, with exception of asthma inhalers and epinephrine pens, will be kept by the Camp Medication Administrator or locked in a secure area.

VENDING MACHINES | MICROWAVES | REFRIGERATORS:
Due to new Colorado State Licensing rule this year, children are no longer allowed to get snacks from the vending machines. Please send them with 2 or more healthy snacks each day. Campers that bring money will not be able to use the vending machine. In addition, do not send food that needs the use of a refrigerator or microwave. We are required to stay within our ratios, we do not have enough staffing to be able to warm up campers foods. When we have 30-40 kids per day at camp, we do not have the staffing or time to be able to warm up food for kids. Also, most days we will be eating our lunch outside and again, won’t have time to warm up all of the food before we go.
