  • The Kroc Center constantly adapts and enhances safety protocols to adjust to needs.

Members and guests are encouraged to report suspicious behavior. Forms for anonymous reporting, called Confidential Notices of Concern, are available at the Front Desk.

The Salvation Army Kroc Center reserves the right to remove from the facility and terminate the membership of any member who fails to comply with any posted rules and regulation or otherwise breaches the Code of Conduct, in which case member will not be entitled to a refund of dues.

Staff & Safety
It takes a special person to be a counselor for our campers, your kids. Camp Counselors have to be energetic, enthusiastic, fun—but also trained to respond quickly and efficiently in any situation. Your child’s safety is our number one priority.

Key Safety Guidelines

  • All staff members will receive First Aid and CPR certification from The American Red Cross.
  • Staff are trained for emergency procedures at each camp location.
  • The swim trips are staffed by full-time life  guard staff beside our summer camp staff.
  • There will be a 1:8 counselor to child ratio at minimum, at all times. The names of the campers will be kept on staff at all times and “check-ins” will be required between each activity.
  • When taking a field trip, the vehicle will be operated by either a camp counselor with The Salvation Army Decisive Driving Certification, or a licensed local transportation company.
  • Camp staff will be equipped with walkie talkies and first aid kits, as well as all emergency information needed for each participant.
  • A first aid kit and a list of medications and allergies will be on camp staff at all times. Emergency contact information will remain on staff no matter the activity, and cell phones will be allotted to multiple staff members for emergency purposes and to remain in contact with the Camp Manager.

Camper Code Of Conduct

  1. Campers must stay with their age group and be accompanied by a counselor during all camp activities.
  2. Campers must remain with camp staff members at all times unless checked-out by an authorized adult with photo I.D.
  3. Camp attendees are expected to respect peers, The Kroc Center staff and the facility at all times.
  4. The use of foul language, abusive actions, and inappropriate behavior is prohibited.

Student Expectations
We are in a highly diverse neighborhood, we recognize all the backgrounds we serve do not speak English. Although we wish we had staff whom spoke all the languages of our community, we currently only speak English and Spanish. For the safety of the children and to avoid miscommunication, we cannot accept students who do not understand and speak English or Spanish.

  1. Be present during all hours of programming.
    No cellphones will be allowed, students would have slept well to be able to interact with their peers and staff.
  2. Treat themselves, their peers, and staff with respect.
    Listening to staff at all times will prevent accidents from happening and will prevent disciplinary action, including but not limited to loss of Friday field trips, or removal from the program. Being respectful of peers, including of their culture, name, personality, and belongings.
  3. Attend 3 of the 4 days of programming in order to be eligible to attend the field trip.
    We have exciting games, activities, and outings planned for Fridays. Field Trips are a privilege, a luxury, and take lots of planning ahead of time for students because we want them to have fun. Academics, enrichment, and clubs are just as important, therefore, only those students who attend 3 of the 4 days will be able to enjoy the field trips.
  4. Follow all rules and expectations at all times.
    One week or an entire summer goes by quickly. We want to serve all the students whom want to enjoy themselves, explore, play, learn, and discover. We expect our rules presented to students to be followed. Students will receive three warnings on a given day and will sit out from clubs, instead they will help our community by helping plan activities or do extra packets of academic work. After three days in one week they will not be allowed back into the program the rest of the week.
  5. Students will have fun for rewards.
    At the end of the summer we will have special rewards for those who best behaved, for those with perfect attendance, perhaps for those whom were exemplary or improved in understanding for a specific area of our program. Maybe for those students who discovered they like painting and did not know it! We want to celebrate students who were able to have fun, while following all expectations previously mentioned!

Drop-Off/Pick-Up Procedures
Campers must be dropped off  by Assembly time and picked up between 4pm-6pm/ Adults authorized to pick-up children (including parents) will be required to show identification at pick-up. A Sign-Out Waiver Form is available for children age 11 and up, and must be completed by both parent and child for a camper to be allowed to sign him/herself in and out of camps. When a child is given the authority to sign him/herself out, he/she is no longer in the care of The Kroc Center staff and standard Kroc Center membership policies apply.  A phone call to the Camp Coordinator in the case of unexpected absence or schedule changes is required. Consistent late pick-up may be penalized with fee.  We use Remind App available on mobile phones to communicate with parents.

Day Camp Visitors
Any day camp visitors for all children and staff will be required to check in at The Kroc front desk, and will be given a name tag to identify the individual as a visitor.

Cancellations/Refund Policy
Full payment is expected at the time of enrollment. No cash refunds are given unless the program is canceled by The Kroc Center. If the program is canceled by The Kroc Center, you will be given the choice of a full credit or a cash refund.

Requests made less than five days prior to the start date are not eligible for a refund or credit, except in the case of personal emergencies. No credits or pro-rated credits will be issued for missed days of camp or class due to illness, partial attendance, behavior issues, or any other reason.

Illness And Injuries
Camps at The Kroc are not designed or equipped to handle ill children. If your camper becomes ill while in camp, our staff will make your child comfortable in an area away from the other campers. Our staff will then contact you (the parent) or one of the individuals you have authorized to pick up your child. If immediate medical attention is needed or if the severity of an injury cannot be correctly established, parents will be notified immediately. The Emergency Medical System (911) will be activated at the discretion of Camp Coordinators and/or Camp Counselors. If staff are unable to reach parents whose child is in need of immediate medical attention, he/she will be transported to the nearest hospital via ambulance and staff will continue to attempt to contact parents. Parents/guardians will be responsible for all emergency medical care expenses.

Medical Protocol
As a parent, if your child has any special medical needs, please include these with the desired response on the Registration Form. These will include, but are not limited to, any medical or behavioral diagnoses that may affect your child’s experience at camp. Updates can be made throughout the summer based on a case-by-case basis and will be reported directly to camp coordinators. By providing this information, you are providing our staff with the knowledge and ability to provide the best care possible for your child. Please note that there will be no nurse/doctor on-call at The Kroc Center.

Medical Distribution
In the case of medication distribution, parents must complete a Right to Distribute Medication Form. This releases The Kroc Center from liability for medication that is required for distribution for the health of a child. Medication must be dropped off to Camp Coordinators in the original prescription container with your child’s name printed on the label and placed in a plastic bag. Medication will be stored in Camp Coordinator’s office and administered at the time(s) and in the amount designated by the Right to Distribute Medication Form. Parents must sign out medication at the end of each day and check back in the following day. Any medication not brought in the appropriate container may preclude camp participation for your child on that day.
