Please find below some Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs), along with directions on how to register on Saturday.
What is the registration process for camp?
- Registration links are listed below but will not be active until Saturday, May 1st at 9:00am.
- Click on the registration link for the FIRST week that your camper will be attending.
- (ex. if your camper will not be starting camp with us until July 19th, 2021, then you would click on the Week 6 – July 19th – July 23rd link)
- This will take you to Calendly and you will be prompted to select one of the remaining spots for that week.
- Spots are limited. We have space for 10 campers per week.
- During the registration process, you’ll have the opportunity to sign up for additional upcoming weeks.
- At the end of the registration process, you’ll need to pay a deposit total of $304.65.
- This includes the one-time registration fee, first week of camp and a 1.45% processing fee.
- This deposit will save your camper’s spot in ALL weeks that you select.
- The remainder of your camp balance, if you choose multiple weeks will be due on the first day of camp.
NOTE: If a week of camp is full, you can add your child to a waitlist.
What are the payments, fees, and deposits?
- Registration Fee: A onetime, $25 registration fee/child is due at the time of registration.
- Deposits: A $275 deposit/child is due at registration.
- Deposits are non-refundable.
- Payments: If your child/children sign up for multiple weeks, you only need to pay the deposit(s) and registration fee(s) to reserve a spot in all the weeks you would like your child/children to participate. The remaining balance of camp will be due on the first day your camper(s) attends camp. You will need to physically come into the dojo for drop off, sign a liability waiver, and pay any outstanding balance(s) on your account.
How old does my child need to be to attend camp?
Vision Quest Summer Camp is open to 4–12-year-old students, who are currently full time enrolled Vision Quest Students .
What are your camp hours?
- Vision Quest Summer Camp will run from 8:00am-12:00pm Monday through Friday.
- Fridays will have an option for an additional two hours at no extra charge from 12:00pm-2:00pm.
- There is an early drop off option, more information below.
How do I change my registration?
All changes to your registrations (weeks registered, cancellations etc.) must be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org two weeks prior to the start of your child’s specific camp date. Please note deposits and registration fees are non-refundable. Families with cancellations that are submitted less than two weeks in advance will not be refunded the difference.
What can I expect a day at Vision Quest Summer Camp to look like?
- Vision Quest Summer Camp is a physically, socially and emotionally safe environment where your child will have loads of fun, make new friends, engage in leadership opportunities, and go home tired! Each week is theme-based and campers will get to participate in a daily fun project, physical and splash activities, arts and crafts, adventures around the dojo and local park, group games, and more!
- On Fridays, we are adding a BRING A FRIEND to the movies (12:00pm-2:00pm), where campers will be able to bring one non-member friend to come and watch a movie on our 250’’ screen, with surround sound and a full concessions stand for no additional cost!
- NOTE: Campers will only be able to bring a friend to the movie portion of camp on Fridays, not the entire day of camp.
When will we know what the themes are for each week?
The theme week flyer is attached to this email as well as posted on our website.
Can I drop off or pick up my child early/late?
Early Drop Offs:
- You have the option to drop off your child at 7:30am Monday through Friday for an additional $25/week. You will be able to mark if you are interested in that option when you register. You will not be charged until the first day of camp. Please remember to SIGN YOUR CAMPER IN when you arrive.
Early Pick Ups:
- If you choose to pick up your child early, please inform the camp supervisor at the beginning of the day so you know exactly where the campers will be. Please remember to SIGN YOUR CAMPER OUT when you leave.
Late Drop Offs:
- You may choose to drop your child off late, but the parent/guardian must transport them to the exact location where they are supposed to be at that time. Please call and email the camp supervisor to let them know. Remember to SIGN YOUR CAMPER IN when you arrive.
Late Pick Ups:
- Campers must be picked up at 12:00pm. A late fee of $1 per minute/per child will be charged after 12:05 PM. As a courtesy, please make sure to call and/or email our supervisor to let them know that you will be late to pick up! Remember to SIGN YOUR CAMPER OUT when you arrive!
What COVID-19 Guidelines are you following?
We follow the current Boulder County Public Health and Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment guidelines. We are requiring all campers and camp counselors to wear a face mask that covers their entire mouth and nose for the duration of camp. Please symptom screen at home before coming to camp. If your camper or anyone in your household is showing symptoms of COVID-19, we ask that you do not come to camp and notify Shannon Milliken as soon as possible (email@example.com).
What is the staff to camper ratio?
Vision Quest Summer Camp has a staff to camper ratio of 1:3/4 children.
Who are the camp counselors?
We have a ROCKSTAR line up of camp counselors this year! All have gone through extensive instructor training with Mr. Milliken and/or Mr. Bertin and have learned appropriate best teaching and management strategies to ensure a fun, safe and interactive environment for ALL campers. All camp counselors have been Vision Quest students for many years, and all have earned a youth/adult Black Belt.
What should campers bring EVERY DAY?
Campers should bring a backpack with:
- a mask (that always covers their mouth and nose)
- two snacks
- a water bottle
- closed-toed shoes
- swimming gear and towel (on water days)
NOTE: We are asking that campers do not bring toys or games from home to support our efforts in limiting COVID-19 exposure.
This is a friendly reminder that Ms. Shannon’s capacity is limited to provide technical support and answer questions. If this is a time sensitive question, please direct your comments to Ms. Tamia (tamia.VQ@gmail.com) and Mr. Bertin (firstname.lastname@example.org) via email.
We look forward to spending our summer with your kiddos!
