Day Camp Sign Out Policy
To ensure the safety of your child at camp, only persons authorized by you, the parent, will be allowed to pick up your child. All adults picking up children from camp are required to identify themselves with a photo I.D. Please plan accordingly. Anyone without proper authorization or identification will not be able to pick up a child. If this happens, a phone call will be made to the parent/ guardian immediately. Please notify us, in writing, of any changes to the information on the medical release. If you need to add an authorized pick up, call camp director and send an email
Drop Off Time
Camp begins at 9:00 am. If you drop your child off after the camp bus leaves, you are responsible for transporting your child to the camp location. The YMCA will not send a vehicle back to pick up late campers.
Please apply sunscreen (SPF-30 or higher) to your child BEFORE
you drop him/her off at camp. Sunscreen will be reapplied at least once during the camp day. If your child has special needs, please speak to the Unit Leader.
Campers return to the YMCA by 4:00 pm. If you need to pick up your child early, please notify the camp Unit Leader in advance. You may contact the Unit Leader by calling the cell number on the activity calendar or writing a note and handing it to the staff directly.

will be assessed if you pick up your child after 6:00 pm.
Checks are payable to the La Jolla YMCA. If a child has not been picked up by closing time, we refer to the emergency information and begin calling the numbers listed.
