WHAT TO BRING TO CLASS - Youth Program

All students should bring the following items to class each day, including the first day:

Wear a swimsuit and closed toe footwear (no flip-flops). 

Bring:

  • Coast Guard approved life jacket that fits properly

  • Sunglasses and/or hat

  • Sunscreen 15+

  • 2-3 water bottles (no glass)

  • Lunch

  • A couple of packaged snacks (e.g. granola bars) that can be passed out on the water

  • Towel

  • Change of clothes or warm clothes, as necessary, such as a sweatshirt and sweatpants.

  • A note indicating any current medications and dosages (not previously indicated on the medical form) to update the medical records, in the event of an emergency. 

 

Please arrive between 8:50AM and 9:00AM each morning, and plan to pick up your child by 4:00 each day. (For half-day classes: 9:00AM – 12:00PM or 1:00PM – 4:00PM)

You will be required to check your child in on the first day and check him/her out of the program in the afternoon. We hope you’ll take this as an opportunity to meet our staff and be directly involved in the daily activities in and around the classroom, and on the water!

IMPORTANT:
Please help our hard-working staff by being on time. If your child is not picked up by 4:05pm you will be asked to contribute a late fee, of $1 per minute late, to our school snack fund.
