    Special Circumstances
    Parents and guardians are required to inform Wippersnappers in writing of any special needs which may affect the child’s ability to participate fully and within the guidelines of acceptable behavior, including, but not limited to, any serious behavioral problems or special circumstances regarding psychological, medical, or physical conditions. Once the notice is submitted, a phone call will be scheduled with the parent/guardian to discuss the special circumstances and whether Wippersnappers can accommodate the circumstances.

    Dress Code
    Children should dress appropriately for the activities scheduled. Wippersnappers recommends shorts and a light weight shirt or top, and some type of athletic shoe or sneaker in order to participate in recreational or athletic activities. Socks must be worn while in the play structure and inflatables. Sandals, flip-flops, rubber “crocs”-style shoes, and other open-toed shoes are not recommended as acceptable attire for active recreation activities. Shirts should have a minimum of 1” wide shoulder straps. Clothing should be age appropriate. It is recommended that a change of clothing is brought every day in case of spills/accidents.

    Behavior Management/Discipline Policy
    Wippersnappers staff will create a fun and safe environment for participants in the program. Praise and positive reinforcement are used as effective methods of behavior management. Children who do not respond to these methods or who are destructive to others or to property will be dealt with in a professional, positive, and timely manner to correct the behavior. The following procedures will be followed for behavior management. All incident reports will be discussed privately with parents/guardians and a copy of each report will be kept on file at Wippersnappers. We encourage self regulation and mindfulness. We will direct a cooling down period if Wippersnappers staff feel necessary.

    1. In the event a child’s behavior is a repeated behavior and cannot be corrected by the Wippersnappers Staff with a verbal warning or other form of behavior modification, a first incident report will be written to document and correct behavior. A copy of the report will be given to the parent/guardian the same day as the incident.

    2. A second incident report will be written if the behavior is repeated by or new behavior problems occur with the same child. This report will follow the same process as the first, but a one or two- day suspension could accompany this report, and no refund will be provided for suspended days. A copy of the report will be given to the parent/guardian the same day as the second incident.

    3. A third incident report will be completed using the same process as the first two. The Wippersnappers staff will write this report. Staff will provide this report to the parent/guardian. Incident reports will be discussed privately with a parent/guardian by a Wippersnappers staff and Camp Director. Dismissal from a program can occur at this time.

    NOTE: Immediate dismissal from the program can occur at any time given severe circumstances. Refunds for missed days due to a discipline dismissal will not be granted.
