2. The swim period will be approximately 2:30 PM to 5:30 PM while at Germonds Pool. On the first day of camp, each child will be water tested by a head lifeguard to determine the child’s swimming abilities.

3. The campers will be dismissed at 5:30 PM. Parents are asked to pick up their children at the Germonds Pool Complex. If there is inclement weather, the children will be dismissed from Rockland Country Day School at 5:30 PM. Should there be any doubt, please contact the Pool at 623-1221.

We request that paper bags be used in lieu of lunch boxes. Your child's name should be placed on the bag. You may provide a snack to be eaten during the allotted snack time.

MISCELLANEOUS:
1. The morning will consist of sports related and new games activities and arts & crafts, with special events, tournaments, etc. The later afternoon will be spent at the swimming facility. When at Germonds Pool, they will be picked up at the pool.

2. Please have the campers wear sneakers and label any belongings that they bring to camp.

3. If your child chooses not to go swimming on a given day, they can participate in quiet games, and arts & crafts activities at the pool facility.

4. Every effort will be made to maintain a ratio of at least 1 staff member for every 12 children.
