Date: March 14-18, 2016
Theme: Nature’s Extremes
Description: Our planet has many odd and fascinating features and creatures. During this camp we will meet live animals and explore some of the most extreme plants, animals, and ecosystems around the world. Join us for one weird week!
Time: 8:00-4:00; Stay-late option until 5:00 for additional $10/day/child
Cost: $155/child for FOTZ members; $180/child for non-members
These forms are required to be completed by the morning of the first day of camp (before you drop your child off), otherwise your child cannot attend camp until we have the following paperwork. These are kept on file for an entire calendar year–so you only need to fill them out once per camp year.
Health History Form –> Required for ALL children. Immunization records are not required if your child attended school in Kansas, Missouri, or Oklahoma this year. Immunization records are required if they did not attend public/private school or attended in another state other than KS, MO, or OK. Please note that this form has to be completed in its entirety. We need all names and street addresses where it asks for them (street intersections do not work). If none of the boxes at the top of page 2 are applicable, please write “NA” in each box.
Authorization for Emergency Medical Care –> Required for ALL children. You do not need a notary if you have someone else witness your signature and sign as well. Please note, health insurance information is required at the bottom. If your child does not have any allergies, please write “NA” on that line.
The following two forms are only required for children who bring medication, EpiPens, inhalers, etc to camp. You will only choose one of the following.
Authorization for Self-Administration of Medication –> Please fill this out if you have a child who will be dispensing their own medications while at camp–including medicine, EpiPens, inhalers, etc. This means that camp counselors do not carry around these items and the camper is responsible for dispensing medication to themselves. You do NOT need it signed by a licensed physician or nurse practitioner.
Authorization for Dispensing Medications to Children –> Please fill this out if you have a child who wishes to have camp staff dispense medication to them. This includes having counselors carry around EpiPens, inhalers, medicines, etc and having the staff dispense it as needed.
You may email completed forms to RRost@Topeka.org before camp starts or may bring them to the first day of camp your child attends this year. Please contact 785-368-9137 with questions.
Campers are to bring their own lunch each day. A daily afternoon snack will be provided by the zoo. Feel free to pack your own snack if you are concerned about food allergies (although we do our best to try and accomodate them).
Spring break camp has a “stay late” fee of $10.00 per child per day. There is no “stay late” option for summer camps.
Cancellations: If you cancel your camp registration 8 or more days before the start date, the Zoo will refund the registration fee, except for $25. The Zoo will not refund any registration fees if cancellation occurs within 7 days of the start date.
