Happy Days are Here Again!

We look forward to another GREAT season of Summer Camps and we would like to thank you for enrolling your child in Generations Summer Day Camp. This Summer we want to continue our AWESOME record of having safe, fun, nurturing programs in our day camps. As you know our camp are located in Brooklyn, USA, the greatest borough in the state. We have added new locations, new programs and new trips to our camp this season.
This is our Parent Info Corner
The purpose of our Parent Corner is to provide you with important practical information about our camp, the ability to download the registration applications and get to know our Rules & Regulations of our programs so you can be fully informed about our policies.
Based on our current economy, each year we try to keep our fees at a reasonable rate for families to afford. There are EarlyBird Specials that starts from January of each year.
All camp paid fees are non-refundable under any and all circumstances other than cancellation due to camper illness, which must be verified by a physician. No Refunds or “make up days” will be granted.
One of the great features that we have is "THERE IS NO CONTRACT". You pay as you go, you can take a week off and your slot will be available when you get back.

In the interests of accounting for our children’s safety and location, every attempt will be made to notify parents by phone of any absence of which our office has not been informed. Please help both your child and Generations staff by informing our Day Camp office in advance if your child will not be attending camp on any given day.
The entire Day Camp will convene each morning at their camp site for assembly; all campers should be escorted in to their group in order to ensure that they have arrived safely, attendance will be taken at this time. Prompt arrival between 7:30 and 9:30am is important.
All campers will be dismissed from Generations between 5:00pm-7:00pm, please note that on special trips dismissal may be at a later time depending on traffic conditions that day, only the person(s) listed on the Emergency Contact Form can pick up your child. EVERY CAMPER MUST BE SIGNED IN WITH THEIR GROUP. COUNSELORS WILL HAVE DAILY ANNOUNCEMENTS AND INFORMATION
If a person arrives to pick up your child and is not authorized to do so your child will be kept at the camp and late fees will be applied to your bill.
All children are subject to late fees if campers are not picked up by dismissal time. The late fees are $25 per day, this charge will show up with your balance on your next invoice, if parent refuse to pay the late fees or are frequently late the child will be dismissed from the program immediately.

Day Camp Schedule
Please look over the Day Camp Schedule carefully in reviewing the schedule, please assess whether or not any of the trips seem inappropriate for your child. We have taken great care in arranging these trips please contact us immediately to discuss if there is likely to be a problem. Our Day Camp travel by both the subway and NYC public buses throughout the summer, Travel procedures and guidelines for traveling on both subway and buses will be discussed with the children on the opening day and every Monday during assembly.
Our expectations from ALL campers:
Campers will be expected to listen to directions and guidance given by all Generations staff members. These directions and guidance will include:
*Listening to others
*Respecting others rights
*Staying with group at all times
*Fighting and cursing will not be tolerated!
*Campers must have Fun! (we’ll make sure of that one!)
These are basic rules and are not difficult to follow. If everyone cooperates, camp will operate smoothly and there will be more time for activities and fun.
Please review these rules with your child BEFORE the first day of camp. If a child continually disrupts camp procedures, the parent will be called by the Camp Director and/or Unit Leader. A meeting will be arranged for the child, parent and counselors, if the situation cannot be resolved, the child may be dismissed from camp. This is a last resort and one we do not wish to pursue with any camper.
If a child is sick, he or she should be kept at home, for his/her safety and the safety of other campers.
The Day Camp office should be informed immediately about the nature of any illness. Call the camp before 8:00am on days when your child is ill or will be absent. We need to know where your child is everyday for the child’s own safety and accountability.
Camp Generations, is licensed by the New York Department of Health and is inspected twice yearly.
