Is it time for LUNCH yet? Campers must bring a lunch each day including field trip days. We do not provide refrigeration so most campers bring lunch in an insulated lunch box with an ice pack.
Does Fun-N-Sun provide lunch? Parents have the option of ordering lunch for their camper 3 days each week for an extra cost. Lunch days are Tuesday (Pizza provide by Dominos), Wednesday (Hot Dogs) and Thursday (Grilled Cheese sandwiches provide by The GRIL). Orders are due at 9:00 on Monday each week and can be made online or in person at camp.
What about concessions? Our teen campers operate a snack store each morning during snack time. They sell apple juice, Gatorade, Rice Krispie Treats, Goldfish Crackers, chips and other snack items. Items cost $.50 – $1.00. Please send money in a labeled Ziploc bag.
What if my child is not a good swimmer? Every camper takes a swim test at the Grayslake Aquatic Center and is given a colored wristband designating what areas of the pool they are qualified in which to swim. Less experienced swimmers must stay in the zero entry area or play in the sandbox. We station our counselors in strategic areas in and around the pool to ensure that campers are well supervised.
AGE GROUPINGS AND COUNSELOR TO CAMPER RATIOS
How are campers divided into age groups? Campers are divided by gender into the following age groupings: Grades 1-2, Grades 3-4, Grades 5-6 and Grades 7-9. Our counselor to camper ratio for these age groups is 1:7 with each group having a counselor intern as well. Preschool campers are all together and have a 1:4 counselor to camper ratio. We have even lower ratios on field trips (like 1:3 or 1:4) to ensure great supervision of your child.
What if my child has a medical condition, will counselors administer medication? We will do our best to care for your child. Upon registration, you will be asked to explain medical conditions and list medications. Our camp directors will administer medications and counselors will carry inhalers, epi-pens or other medications with them on all outings.
What if my child has food allergies? Upon registering you be asked to explain allergies and treatments for them. This will show up on the camper reports. Each morning when you drop off your child they will receive a unique wristband that signifies the camper has an allergy. This reminds all counselors to watch out for and protect the camper from harmful allergens.
