CODE OF CONDUCT
Arsenal Football Development Summer Camps encourages fun, friendship and safety in a positive atmosphere. We have established behavior guidelines that revolve around the “Three R’s”:
- Respect for yourself
- Respect for others
- Respect for your environment
Medication must be given directly to our Medical Staff, in it’s original container with your child’s name on the prescription label on the first day of camp.
WE WILL REQUIRE A HEALTH CARE PROVIDER’S SIGNATURE (MEDICAL CLEARANCE) DATED WITHIN THE LAST YEAR BEFORE YOUR CAMPER’S START DATE. UPDATED VACCINATION RECORDS ARE REQUIRED FOR ALL CAMPERS AND SHOULD BE UPLOADED TO YOUR ONLINE ACCOUNT BEFORE CAMP STARTS.
Helpful Tip: Please check with your child’s school for a copy of their current medical clearance. We have found this to be the easiest for parents/guardians when meeting this requirement.
ARSENAL FOOTBALL DEVELOPMENT SUMMER CAMP POLICIES DO NOT ALLOW DISPENSING, BY CAMP STAFF, OF ANY MEDICATION WHILE YOUR CAMPER IS AT CAMP. ALL ARSENAL CAMPS HAVE CERTIFIED ATHLETIC TRAINERS ON SITE FOR CPR/FIRST AID AND SAFETY. CAMPERS MUST BE ABLE TO SELF-MEDICATE.
To ensure the health and safety of all campers, we request that your camper stay home to rest and recuperate upon the onset of the following conditions:
- a temperature of 100.5º or above.
- experiencing the contagious phase of any illness.
Please call the camp number if your child will be absent from camp, or notify us via email.
STAYING HEALTHY WHILE HAVING FUN IN THE SUN
It is important that our campers stay hydrated, and we encourage our campers to drink water throughout the day. There will be water stations set up near each activity area, and our Coaching Staff will offer frequent reminders and give opportunities for water breaks during the camp day.
Apply sunscreen in the morning before camp and use a waterproof or water-resistant sunscreen with SPF 30+.
We ask that only Popsicle brand popsicles are brought for group treats. Please avoid varieties with dairy or fresh fruit.
