Registration for Remote Learning Camp will be done on a first come, first-serve basis. Submission of registration paperwork does not guarentee enrollment. A confirmation will be sent via email to validate enrollment. If openings are not available as requested on the registration form, a staff member will reach out via phone or email to notify the family. All registration materials including the health forms, and a copy of the camper's most recent physical, and any applicable payments must be received in order to complete the registration process.
Campers should bring their own snacks, lunch, and drinks daily. NEAG will have snacks and drinks available for purchase. However, these should not be relied on as a child's primary lunch. Please note that we take food allergies seriously, and do not allow sharing of food between campers.
INJURIES / ILLNESSES
Should a camper become ill or injured while at camp, the parents or guardians will be contacted to arrange a pickup. Campers will receive first-aid from a certified staff if necessary. In the case of a critical injury or illness, local EMS will be contacted as well. Campers sent home from the gym with an injury or illness may be required to submit a doctors note in order to return.
WHAT TO WEAR
While doing gymnastics, your child should wear clothing that is
comfortable and breathable. Shorts and a fitted t-shirt work well.
Please no clothing with buttons, snaps, zippers or any other
embellishment that could hurt your child, or our equiptment. Leotards
are also appropriate for girls, but are not necessary. All jewelry should be removed prior to doing gymnastics. Bare feet are required for gymnastics, but socks/shoes may be worn during non-gymnastics times.
REFUNDS AND TRANSFERS
Cancellations must be received within 7-days prior to the start of camp in order for a refund to be issued. No refunds, prorations, or transfer of fees will be made if a child fails to attend, has incomplete attendance, or is dismissed for any reason. Transfers are permitted pending availability. All transfers are at the discretion of the camp director. We understand that COVID-19 is changing the school picture for our children significantly, and it is a fluid situation. Should the learning model for your child's school change, or should you decide to change the schooling option in which your child participates in, NEAG will do it's best to accomodate changes in your child's camp enrollment as needed.
WHAT TO BRING
Children should bring a healthy snack (2 if staying for extended
day) lunch, and a water bottle everyday. NEAG has snacks and water available for purchase, but these should not be relied on as a child's primary lunch.
A bathing suit, towel, and flip flops (or other easy slip-on shoes)
should be packed daily for swim days. Parents will receive a weekly field trip schedule ahead of time via email. All necessary field trip costs/equipment will be covered by the gym. However, children are welcome to bring additional money/equipment of their own as well (example: Child may bring their own roller skates or pads rather than using the provided rentals). All items brought to NEAG should be clearly labeled with the child's name.
HEALTH AND SAFETY
According to Massachusetts State Law, each child must have a
physical examination and an up to date immunization record signed by a physician within 18 months to attend this program. Additionally, a Health History Form must be completed and signed by a parent/guardian, and submitted with each child's registration packet. Registrations
submitted without necessary health forms will be placed in a pending status.
All staff are CORI/SORI screened, and are USA Gymnastics Certified. During instructional gymnastics time, children will be grouped based on age, gender, and ability level, to ensure campers are learning the appropriate skill progressions.
This camp must comply withy regulations of the MDPH, and be licensed by the LBOH. Parents have the right to review all camp policies and procedures.
PICK-UP / DROP-OFF PROCEDURES
Campers should be dropped off between 8:00am-8:30am. Drop-off will occur at the side door marked "Entrance". Parents should escort their child to the door where a staff member will be waiting for them. All campers will have their temperature taken daily, and be asked to sanitize their hands prior to entering the facility. Campers exhibiting a temperature of 99.5 or higher will not be permitted to attend camp that day.After passing a temperature check, parents will be asked to sign their child in, and confirm their authorized pickups. Children will then be directed to their remote learning area where they may begin their assignments. Pickup may begin as early as 2:45pm, and no later than 3:15pm. Parents should pick their child up at the front glass door labeled "Exit Only", where a staff member will meet them to sign their child out. Any adult picking up a camper must be listed on the camper's "Authorized Pickup List". Identification may be required.
COVID-19 POLICIES & PROCEDURES
As a licensed camp, we must remain in compliance with all state and local guidelines as they pertain to COVID-19. This includes a reduced building capacity, designated entrances and exits, one way and social distancing markers throughout the gym, lower group numbers, and increased cleaning and sanitizing protocols. Staff and students are screened daily for normal temperatures. Common areas are professionally cleaned and sanitized nightly. Gym equipment is sanitized in between groups throughout the day. If at anytime a staff member, or current student should test positive for COVID-19, families of those that the person may have been in contact with will be notified immediately, and the gym will undergo a mandatory 1-week closure, and professional deep clean of all areas will be done prior to reopening. Should at anytime the town, or state decide that it is no longer safe to continue camp operations, we will put a hold on all camp programing until it is deemed safe for us to commence. Any campers affected by these types of closures will receive a refund for any unattended programing.
