All part timers and volunteers are welcome to attend camp every day, but pay will be based on schedule. Please contact me if there are any questions.

2015 Counselors
We are postponing the counselor meeting till the week on June 14th. We will keep you posted when we set the date. Everyone selected to work during the 2015 summer season must attend! The meeting will be held in the recreational center after school at 4:00pm. If you are a returning counselor, please make sure you drop off your working papers to Mr. Lechman at Memorial School ASAP. We will fill in the required section prior to the meeting so they can be completed before the end of the school year.

2015 counselors will be posted under the FILES section as soon as possible.

Letter to parents!

Dear Parents,

Welcome to the Emerson Recreation Camp of 2015. We are very excited to be running the camp again. We are happy to see some familiar faces, as well as many new campers. In order to increase communication, we set up a website so you can know what is happening each day. You can also check this site if camp is canceled for the day. The website is http://recreational-camp.jshs.emerson.k12.nj.us
You can also receive camp information via a reverse text message from www.rainedout.com Please sign up and register today. You can sign up by searching for Emerson Summer Rec Camp.

First, camp begins at 8:30 and ends at 2:45. Please make sure you carefully drive into the lot at 8:30 and quickly drop off your child. There will be counselors at the driveway to make sure every child knows what to do and where to go. Please be sure to send in a labeled lunch every day and also include some extra water. We do not have a refrigerator to put lunches in, but we do have an air conditioned room, please keep that in mind when you’re packing their lunch. When the students arrive in the morning, they will put their lunch in the arts and crafts room. There will be an area marked with a group number. Every child is in a group and can put their lunch in that area, then join their group and counselor in the field behind the library.

Second, since our camp is outdoors, it is weather permitting. If it is raining in the morning, especially thundering and lightning outside, camp will be canceled. We will not cancel if it is lightly drizzling during the day, but use your best judgment. We do have some sprinklers and a hose to cool everyone down, but if the heat is excessive, over 100 degrees, we would ask parents to pick up their children. Also, please make sure you send your child in with a change of clothes and a towel. In lieu of shirts, this year we are providing drawstring bags. They can use it to carry anything they need throughout the day, please put your child’s name on it.

Finally, we will have the children lined up and ready to go at 2:40, in the front corners of the rec center. Please do not walk to the back of the rec center to pick up your child. All counselors are instructed to make sure they see the parent before letting any children go. If for any reason your child needs to leave camp early, make sure you write a note to your child’s head counselor including the time they will be picked up.

Thanks again for signing your child up for camp this year; we will have lots of fun, make lots of friends, and hopefully learn a few new things on the way. If you have any question or concerns, please do not hesitate to ask. Enjoy your summer!
