    WIPPESNAPPERS 2022 SUMMER CAMPS ARE OPEN FOR BOOKING

    Let’s Play! Summer Camps are back for 2022!

    Become unplugged and get ready for action-packed days of climbing, sliding and bouncing at the best kids indoor play place – Wippersnappers! Each day your child will get to enjoy the Rock Bouldering Wall, Wiggle Karts, Inflatable Obstacle Courses (must be 40” tall to use) and the triple level Play Structure with the popular wave slide, tunnel slides, monkey rings, web crawls, bridges and much more. Our calendar is full of action packed fun, games and activities.

    Each camper will get a special Wippersnappers Camp t-shirt and water bottle. (We will keep the water bottle at Wippersnappers until Thursday when they can take it home with them). It is suggested to send a change of clothing with your child in case of spills, etc. You provide the lunch, healthy snacks are provided by us to ensure each camper will be sustained through the day of play and adventure. You may opt in to our lunch option for an extra cost.  Our camp staff is CPR certified with a 1:6 ratio to maintain quality interactions through the day.

    Build Confidence and Socialization Skills with Wippersnappers Discovery Play Group. Discovery Play Group will be back in the fall.

    The Wippersnappers Discovery Play group program is designed for parents and their children 6 months old to 4 years old to discover, explore, and learn together. In the play group you will have an opportunity to socialize alongside your child with other local parents and children of the same age group in a safe and regulated environment.

    While playing, children will learn and develop important social skills that they will continue to use throughout their lifetime. Things like problem solving, creativity, and willingness to take risks are just a few of the skills developed through play. Children who use their imagination and ‘play pretend’ in safe environments are able to learn about their emotions, what interests them, and how to adapt to situations. When children play with each other, they are given the opportunity to learn how to interact with others and how to behave in various social situations.  See below for dates and to sign up!

    Late Pick-Up Policy:

    There will be a late-fee assessed for children who are picked up after the scheduled pick up time for their camp. The late fee is $1.00 for each minute past the scheduled pick up time. Repeated late pick-ups may result in the removal of the participant from the program, with no refund for prepaid programs.

    Sick Policy:

    If your child has had a fever, diarrhea, has been vomiting, or has a rash we require them to stay home for 24 hours after the last incident. If rash occurs, a doctor’s note is required sating the rash is not contagious for them to return to camp.

    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 (comfortable warmer clothes for Spring Break Camp), 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.

    Personal Belongings:

    Children should not bring toys, mobile phones, electronic devices, jewelry, money, or any possession of value with them to any of the programs. Children will be responsible for their own belongings. Wippersnappers is not responsible for lost or stolen items.

    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 Wippersnappers staff and/or the 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.
