Please read these policies carefully as they pertain to Einstein's Workshop Summer Camp.
Students must be registered and paid for a specific class, time and duration before the beginning of the first day. Students will be able to attend classes only during the time that they are registered and must be picked up at the end of their registered class.
Parents must fill out all applicable forms through the Campbrain Einstein's Workshop registration portal before attending camp (including: Agreement, Medical, and Immunization forms).
What to Bring
Students should not bring anything except a pre-filled water bottle, snacks, lunch (if applicable), and required medications. All items should be kept in a backpack, which will stay with the student.
Drop-off is from 8:45am to 9:00am (Morning session) and 12:45pm to 1:00pm (Afternoon session). Unfortunately, due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic and the added sanitation demands on our staff it presents, drop-off before 8:45am is no longer allowed until further notice. We recognize that this may be a hardship for parents who work regular 9am-5pm hours, and will allow early drop-off for a fee on a case-by-case basis.
During drop-off, an adult parent or guardian MUST accompany their student, regardless of age, into the facility to Sign-in. The guardian should check the sign-in sheet to make sure that the person picking up is listed on the sign-in sheet. If another person will be picking up the child, the guardian dropping-off must designate that person in writing.
Morning Pick-Up is from 12:00pm to 12:15pm. Afternoon Pick-Up is from 4:00pm to 4:15pm.
During pick-up an adult parent or guardian MUST enter the building to sign-out their student, regardless of age. Proper identification (i.e. valid driver’s license, passport or other government ID) is required to pick up the student.
Late Pick-up – Extended Play
An extended day option will be available after camp (4:00-5:45pm) for ages 6 and up for an additional charge of $20 per day (limited availability). However, this option must be registered for in advance. Late pick-ups are subject to a $40 fee, and repeated late pick-up may be grounds for expulsion without refund.
If we have to preemptively close due to unsafe weather conditions, we will post/update our website. Although we will make every effort to post by the night before, we value your child’s safety and reserve the right to make a last-minute judgment. If you are unsure if we will be open, please check our website. You must provide an emergency contact number that can be reached at any time in case of an emergency.
Lunch and Play
There will be a staff-supervised Lunch and Play period from 12:00-1:00 pm, between the morning and afternoon sessions.
If your child is taking morning and afternoon classes, Lunch and Play is included with enrollment at no additional charge. If your child is only taking a half-day class, you may elect to have them stay/come for Lunch and Play for an additional $15.
Snack and Lunch
Please provide your child with a nut-free snack for each class. We sell snacks/bottled water for $1 each if you prefer to send money with your child. If they will be here for lunch, please also pack a nut-free lunch for each day.
Children will not have access to the refrigerator or microwave. Please pack meals in sealed, insulated food-storage containers, with cooling packs enclosed as needed. Please do not pack hot meals. Dropping off lunch at lunch time is permitted.
If an all-day student does not have a lunch, we will contact you so you may bring a lunch. If Einstein’s Workshop must provide a lunch to a camper, you may be charged an additional $50 for each day when this occurs.
*Nut Free Facility
Due to the prevelance of nut, tree-nut and peanut allergies among children age K-8, we have chosen to be a Nut Free Facility. ALL FOOD, snacks, lunches and beverages should be completely free of nuts. Failure to provide nut free food may result in the child being moved to a separate area while eating and notification of the parent/guardian. To avoid any confusion, please tell us in advance if they will be bringing lunch with a "nut alternative," such as sunflower seed butter in place of peanut butter.
Health & Safety
We care about the health and safety of your child. Please note that you may request a copy of our staff background check procedures, discipline policies, and health policies at any time.
Camper Injury/Illness Policies
In the event that a child is injured or ill (or suspected to be ill) with a communicable disease, or is otherwise in need of quiet and rest, they will be isolated in the infirmary with adult supervision. You may be asked to take the child home as promptly as possible. If your child is simply in need of rest or minor first aid, he/she may return to class when feeling better.
Please refer to our COVID-19 Camp Policy for our policy specifically regarding the SARS-COV-2 pandemic.
Required Health Forms
Health forms are required for each student and will be collected upon registration. We will not be able to accept any camper without the proper paperwork. Information required for each student are:
- Emergency Contact Information
- General Health Information
- Medication Authorization Form (if any medications are required on-site)
In addition to this, the Massachusetts Board of Health requires that all campers submit certification of immunizations. These may be obtained from your doctor. Immunization records may be either:
