• November 27 No-School Day Camp ~ Greatness in Giving

    Registration November 4 through 11.

    Camp is only open to students registered by the deadline.  Registrations will not be accepted after registration closes to allow for adequate planning and staffing.  

    To ensure all employees are monitoring and engaging with students, employees are not guaranteed in the office to answer the aiphone from 8:45 a.m. - 3:45 p.m. 

    If the aiphone is not answered when you arrive to drop off/pick up, call the site cell phone.

    If you are unable to reach staff on the site cell phone or the main phone number, call the central B/ASP office at 515-289-3925 or program manager Nancy Jeffs at 832-574-6223.

    Camp hours: 6:30 a.m. - 6:00 p.m.

    Camp location: Northeast Elementary School, 1705 NE Trilein Drive, Door S10

    Snack: morning and afternoon snacks are included 

    Lunch: sack lunch from home.  Milk will be available to students; a $0.50 per carton fee will be charged to the student's nutrition account for those who choose milk.  In the event a student forgets their lunch, the program will provide a lunch to the student at an additional cost of $15.00 which will be charged to the student account.

    Outside Recreation: district cold/hot weather guidelines are followed in the B/ASP.  Unless the temperature and/or wind chill is at or below 0 degrees, students will go outside during camp days.  Please send your child with appropriate and labeled outdoor gear, including a jacket, hat, mittens, etc.  Suncreen provided, if needed. 

    Activities: students in each camp will participate in a variety of fun, hands-on enrichment activities focused on science, arts, recreation, and technology that relate to the camp theme for which they're registered.  Camp activities allow students many opportunities for teamwork, movement, communication, problem-solving, innovation, and most importantly, FUN! 

    Drop Off & Pick Up: Door S10.

    Adult must accompany student inside building and sign the student into the program.  At pick up, adult must enter the building and show valid ID to pick up a student and sign him/her out of the program.  The adult must be listed on the student's CAMP authorized pick up list.  Your patience is appreciated.  Staff will work to have all campers in/out as quickly as possible, but will be dismissing several students and will follow program dismissal procedures for the safety of all students.

    What to Wear: see individual camps below for required clothing.  Don't forget to label any jackets/sweatshirts.

    What to Leave at Home: toys, games, stuffed animals, balls, books, etc.  We'll be too busy and don't want to lose any special items.  If personal items come to camp, they'll be put away.  The B/ASP is not responsible for lost or stolen items.

    Questions: Contact the central B/ASP office at basp@ankenyschools.org or 515-289-3925.

    Camp registration is completed through RevTrak.  This is a different registration system than that used for your child's school-year B/ASP registration.  

    If you do not receive an email confirmation after completing the registration form, your child is NOT registered and additional action is needed by you to secure registration before the deadline.  In the rare occurrence that the system does not accept your registration and you need to begin your registration over again (remember, if you do not receive an e-mail confirmation, your child is NOT registered), the online registration system requires you to wait 60-minutes before attempting registration again.  You may be able to expedite this process by changing browsers or deleting your cookies.  ** For best results, do not register via a mobile phone device. **

    How are camp locations selected?  For individual day camps, the B/ASP attempts to offer at least one camp on opposite sides of the district as a convenience to parents.  However, locations largely depend on available building space (teachers are continuing to work in their classrooms on professional development days); building construction/maintenance; location of available building space to playground and building entry; program enrollment; and supply distribution.

    Space is limited for each camp and spaces are filled on a first-registered basis.  While this camp is included with monthly tuition (exception: Wednesday AM Only; students may attend at a rate of $32.00), space is limited based on available building space and staff availability.  Some camps do require payment of an additional off-site or on-site field trip fee.  Additional fees are due at the time of registration and are non-refundable/non-transferable.  See individual camp descriptions below for details. 

    What do I need to register?  Parent names/phone numbers/email addresses/driver's license numbers; emergency contact names/phone numbers; debit/credit card (if selecting a camp with an additional fee).

    Why do you ask for information that's already been provided ont the B/ASP registration form?  Student files are housed at the student's home site; camp is held at different sites across the district.  Therefore, full student files are not readily available to staff.  The information that's requested on the camp registration form is basic information that's necessary to ensure the safety of your child.
