Final Week of Summer Camp

 

Dear Summer Camp Families:

We can’t believe that this is the last week of summer camp. We have really enjoyed spending time with your children and hope that the experience was rewarding and enriching for them.  But, it’s not over yet. We have a very busy week planned. Please read this letter carefully and return the attached form to us as soon as possible.

Thursday, August 13th is our final field trip to the beach at Coney Island. We will not be going on any rides.  There is no charge for this trip but it is important that you send your child to camp prepared for the trip.
• We will leave the school at 9:30 a.m. and return around 5 p.m.
• Children should come to school with bathing suits on. Send underwear in their backpack if you
think they will want to change before coming home.
• All children need to bring a towel, bathing suit, sunscreen, a hat, a bagged lunch and two bottles of
water. School Lunch will be provided if needed.  Small sand toys are allowed.  It is very important that your child brings water.  We will not take students with us on this trip if they don’t have at least one bottle of WATER!!
• Your child may bring up to $5 to purchase a snack at the beach -The $5 can be used to
purchase food only – no toys or souvenirs. Group leaders will hold all money brought by students.
• Our swimming policy for the beach is younger children can go in to the water up to their knees,
older children (3rd-5th grade) up to their waist. You must complete and sign the permission slip below in
order for your child to go into the water. If you do not want your child to go in, please make sure they
understand your wishes before we go on the trip on Thursday. Our swimming instructors and lifeguards will accompany us on the trip.

Friday, August 14th will be our End of Camp Carnival & BBQ. We will be having a cookout of
hamburgers and hotdogs and would like all families to contribute a side dish or salad. Hot
dog/hamburger buns, cheese, bottled water is also needed. Please no beverages, desserts, cookies or candy.  As much as we would love for families to join us, this BBQ is for summer campers only. Please complete the form below to let us know what you want to bring. We will eat lunch at 12:30.

We took a lot of pictures and videos over the summer.  If you have not yet requested to join our closed Facebook Group, search for the GROUP PS 11 Afterschool and Summer Camp and request to join.

We look forward to seeing you in September.

Deborah Osborne
Director
