At Royal City Soccer Club, the health and safety of our campers is our number one priority. Learn the many ways we work hard to ensure a safe environment for all campers and staff.
Each camp location is equipped with a substantial first aid kit to accommodate almost any camp related situation. This first aid kit is stored and maintained by our onsite supervisor, and accessible by all staff. It is replenished throughout camp as supplies are used up.
We recognize that many children who attend our camps may have a medical condition or allergy.
We ask that parents complete the appropriate form during the registration process, but if you forget, don’t worry! Our onsite supervisor will have extra forms at camp.
In the case of anaphylaxis, parents/guardians must complete the EpiPen authorization form so our camp staff are fully aware of the situation and act appropriately should the need arise.
We create a safe and inclusive environment for children with food allergies and ask that lunches and snacks do not contain nuts and/or tree nuts. We prioritize communication with parents, staff education, and proactive planning to ensure the well-being of all campers with food allergies.
If your camper has an allergy that we should be aware, be sure to indicate their allergy/allergies on the Medical section of the online registration.
On the first day of camp, you’ll receive a newsletter that identifies the onsite supervisor’s cell phone number in case you need to reach our staff during the day.
As our staff are busy supervising the campers, parents/guardians should only call the Supervisor if absolutely necessary. Please understand that at certain moments in the day, our camp staff may be unable to answer your call immediately. As soon as there is a break in action and if safe to do so, they will call you back. We thank you in advance for your patience.
Our summer soccer camps are primarily outdoors (except during inclement weather). We ask that all campers bring and apply their own sunscreen. We will have touch-free sunscreen spray available on site if needed. Campers will be reminded several times a day to apply sunscreen. Where possible, we’ll also conduct some activities in the shade or under shelter.
For the safety of all campers, we ask parents/guardians to follow our sign in and sign out protocol each day. If a camper will not be dropped off or picked up by a parent/guardian and will arrive on their own (by bike, walk, etc.) we require a sign in/out release form completed by a parent/guardian prior to the start of camp. This form is also available during the online registration process.
Our staff have a passion to provide the best possible and safest experience for your camper. Most of our staff have first aid/CPR certification in addition to others. All staff are required to complete a police background check and provide it to RCSC prior to the start of camp.
We ask all parents and guardians to use appropriate judgment when sending your child to camp. If your child is ill, kindly refrain from sending your child to camp until they are symptom free for 24 hours. The same is asked of all staff and volunteers.
If a camp participant becomes ill while at camp, the individual will be separated immediately from the others (in a supervised area) to ensure that physical distancing is maintained. Parents/guardians will be notified immediately, and the camper, volunteer, or staff member will need to be picked up as soon as possible.
