Yesterday, we took a look at the steps that can be taken to help make your child’s spring break at home an accident-free one. Today, ePACT has come up with three great tips on how to prepare your child for a spring break camp or program.
Provide your child’s emergency information: Sharing your child’s emergency information with the leaders running the spring break program is crucial. ePACT provides a simple and easy way for you to securely store this information online. With this, you can share it with the camp electronically or use the print option to provide the leaders with a hard-copy of the information.
Pack a personal comfort kit in their bag. Enrolling your child into a day camp over spring break is no different than when they enroll in a new school year. You want to make sure your child is safe and well taken care of in any emergency situation, and the best way to do so is to pack them a comfort kit. Sending a comfort kit with your child can help distract them from stressful events, and provide comfort in a hectic situation. If you happen to be running late, a comfort kit with activities and snacks can also keep them busy while you are making your way there. If you are having trouble considering what to pack, check out our previous blog on what to include in a comfort kit.
Pack some extra snacks and fluid for your child. Spending a full day with other children can be exhausting! Your child will need as much energy as they can get, so packing extra snacks and drinks will help ensure your child is well-nourished and hydrated to keep them going all day. In particular, ensure that you have packed at least one water bottle for your child.
And if you are expecting some sunshine over spring break, make sure your child uses sunscreen to protect them from sunburn while they are outside! Check back tomorrow for ePACT’s final part of the spring break preparation series – travelling with children.
