*Campers will go to Memorial Park Family Aquatic Center or the Washington Park Ice Arena to swim/ice skate each day.  Campers will need to be picked up by 5:30 p.m.  If the pool is closed, campers will remain at the pavilion and counselors will provide alternative activities.

Wokka Wokka PhotoWe require a parent, guardian, or other designated individual to personally check each camper into and out of our day camp with a staff member each day. Please do not drop off your child in the morning or have your child meet you outside the camp or pool. We will not allow your child to leave without someone coming in to get him or her.

Please know that our camps are drug, alcohol and tobacco free zones. City policy prohibits us from holding or dispensing any prescription or over-the-counter medication either internally or externally. Our first aid policy only allows us to insure breathing, control bleeding and swelling. We cannot administer any medicine, either internal or external, under any circumstances. This includes salves, topical ointments, sting-ease, pain reliever, anti-ivy. We are permitted to assist your child in applying sun screen or insect repellant that he or she brings. In the unlikely event that your child is injured, we will contact you immediately with the details and asking for your guidance on further care, if needed.

What to wear/bring:

  1. Have your child eat a nutritious and filling breakfast. We plan on lots of hard play!
  2. Campers should wear play clothes and tennis shoes and bring a swim suit.
  3. Campers should bring their own lunch every day. We suggest that lunches be brought in coolers since we are unable to provide refrigeration. We recommend that sodas not be brought to camp and sodas will not be available for sale. Frozen juice and Kool-aid that come in cardboard cartons are an excellent drink for lunches. Please do not bring glass containers of any kind to camp. 
  4. Campers should bring and wear sunscreen.
  5. Lunches, jackets, sunscreen, etc. should be marked with campers name.
  6. No radios or music players will be allowed at camp.
  7. To maintain our proper counselor/camper ratio, campers should not bring a friend to camp who is not enrolled in our program.
  8. Since we can not be held responsible for lost valuables, we suggest that campers should not bring phones, any jewelry, watches, pocket knives or other valuables to camp.

The registration fee includes a field trip and arts and crafts supplies. Parents are responsible for transportation to and from Memorial Park. Please provide your child's lunch/drink in a small cooler, as refrigeration is not available.  

Camp and Swimming Lessons in One

If you would like your child to take swimming lessons and attend camp, now you can. All you need to do is register for the coordinating weeks for Wokka Wokka and morning swimming lessons at Memorial Park Family Aquatic Center.

Depending upon the number of children enrolled in swimming lessons, a counselor(s) will escort them to the lessons, stay at the pool to chaperone them and then bring them back to camp when the lessons are over. You cannot register online for these swim lessons because the system recognizes the camp and swim lessons as a time conflict.  Office staff is able to override this issue.  

The following weeks of camp will coordinate with the following sessions of lessons:
* = Session I swimming lessons (9 am) 605372-04 & 605372-05 = TBA-(level)A 
** = Session II swimming lessons (9 am) 605372-06 & 605372-07 = TBA-(level)A 
*** = Session III swimming lessons (9 am) 605372-09 & 605372-10 = TBA-(level)A
