For the health and safety of all campers, we require medical clearances, signed by a physician or health care practitioner, as well as updated immunization records for all campers.
FOOD ALLERGY POLICY
Campers with Food Allergies: Campers with Food Allergies will be unable to participate in our optional lunch program since our food service provider cannot guarantee meals or snacks that are peanut-free, tree-nut free, free from other common food allergens (dairy, soy, wheat, sesame, shellfish, etc.) or free from any cross-contamination.
Snack Option: For your camper’s safety, you can either send their snack to camp which will be managed by our camp nurse or we can provide a healthy snack option made by MadeGood®(madegoodfoods.com). MadeGood® snacks are manufactured in a facility that is free from the most common allergens: peanut, tree nut, wheat, dairy, egg, soy, sesame, fish and shellfish.
CELL PHONES & ELECTRONIC DEVICES POLICY
Campers and ESF team members are not permitted to bring cell phones or electronic/web-linked devices to camp as they are a distraction. To promote a healthy camp environment we ask the following:
- Please leave cell phones and electronic devices at home.
- If you have an urgent message for your child, we ask that you call the camp office at (718.432.1013). We will relay any information to your child immediately.
- ESF is not responsible for what happens to any devices if brought to camp.
Our goal is to create a safe environment, conducive to discovery, and free of all distractions that may hinder the learning process and joy of camp. Thank you for your continued support and cooperation.
