Little JUKO Rules

We have a few rules at Little JUKO to keep everyone safe and camp running smoothly:

- NO HURTING. This includes (but is not limited to) verbal or physical altercations with staff or other campers, bullying, intimidation, or use of inappropriate language.

- Children  MUST be picked up on time by their parent or guardian.

- Children must always wear well-fitting athletic/tennis shoes to Little JUKO camp, as well as appropriate swimwear on designated water days! This is imperative to reduce the risk of injuries. Any child wearing non-compliant shoes or swimwear will be unable to participate in camp for the day. It will be the parent or guardian’s responsibility to promptly pick the child/children up from camp.

- Kids MUST check out with their Little JUKO counselors everyday before leaving camp.

- All children attending Little JUKO MUST be potty-trained.

Any child or parent failing to comply with the above listed rules will not be permitted to return to Little JUKO for the remainder of the camp season.

Little JUKO Staff

All Little JUKO Camp Counselors and staff members attend extensive training prior to the start of camp covering topics such as developmental stages, recognizing child abuse, and psychological aspects of children. Additionally, our staffers:

MUST pass a Police/Criminal Background check

Obtain CPR and First-Aid Certifications

Weather Policy

Cancellations due to weather will be made on a case-by-case basis. Parents will receive an automated phone call and/or email if camp is cancelled. Please also follow our Facebook Page for updates on weather cancellations.

If it starts to rain during camp, Little JUKO campers will go inside the shelters at both the Springwood and Mary Scott locations, however, the shelter at Mary Scott Park is very small for the number of children we have. Therefore, we would recommend that you pick your child up early if it is raining during Little JUKO.
