Will camp operate in the summer of 2021?

As of right now we are hoping to host camp at the UM and FIU campus.  Both UM and FIU will make a decision regarding camps as we get closer to the summer.  

How does the waitlist for camp registration work?

Camp registration is currently open for the waitlist until UM and FIU make a final decision on camps.  The $5 waitlist fee will be credited to the accounts if camp is opened and your child attends our camp program.  If camps are closed this summer, you will not be reimbursed for the waitlist application fee.  

What is the refund policy if camp is cancelled?
There will be a 100% refund if camp is closed this summer.  

Are electronic devices allowed at camp?
Electronic devices are allowed in camp but the campers are responsible for their own device.  It is highly recommended that the campers do not bring any electronic devices to camp because there are enough activities to keep all campers entertained throughout the day.  Items brought are at your own risk.
What do the kids do in early and after care?
Early and after care is a time for campers to meet new friends and have a good time.  Campers are encouraged to participate in fun activities and form friendships that may last a lifetime.  All campers will be supervised during these times but activities are usually informal and can vary from day to day. During early care, campers are also encouraged to eat breakfast.  There may be days that we may have snacks to offer campers during after care.
Are the campers separated into age groups?

Campers are separated into age groups.  Usually the groups consist of campers ages 5-6, 7-8, 9-10, 11-12, and 13-14.

What happens if a child is injured?
If a child is seriously injured, 911 will be called immediately.  Head counselors will contact the parents and update them on the status of their children.  Counselors will remain with the campers throughout any emergency situation.
Do the kids receive enough physical activity?

Our summer camp program emphasizes the importance of outdoor play.  All campers will participate in outdoor activities regardless of age or gender.  In addition to our already physical schedule, we do offer an additional fitness mini elective that campers can participate in.

Are all camp locations the same?

All camp locations follow very similar schedules and activities. 

What are the camp times?

Early Care:  7:30 am - 9:30 am

Camp Time:  9:30 am - 3:30 pm

After Care:  3:30 pm - 5:30 pm

Are there any discounts and how are they applied?

Discounts are based on the number of weeks attended and applied automatically after the initial deposit is made.  Our registration process is done by a third party company and accounts need to be activated in order for Wise Choice staff members to adjust the invoice.  To activate an account, make the deposit payment at the end of the registration process.  All invoices are usually updated with the discounted price within 24 hours.

When do campers get the t-shirts, book bag, and cap?

Campers will receive all camp supplies on the first day of camp.  We do not distribute camp supplies prior to the first day of camp.  

What ages do you accept?

All campers must be 5-14 years of age.  We do not accept 4 year old campers in our program.  Campers must be 5 years old prior to the first day of camp.  

Do you offer a spring break or winter camp?

Unfortunately, we do not offer a spring camp because the vacation period for the university and elementary/middle school do not coincide.  We also do not offer a winter camp because most of our staff and personnel travel or prefer to take the break to spend time with their family. 

Are staff members CPR certified?

We have multiple staff members that are CPR certified in both locations.  We believe that it is important to have staff members that are CPR certified but not all staff members are CPR certified.  

How are mini-electives chosen?

Mini-electives are chosen every Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday morning by the camper.  Mini-electives have a certain number of spaces available.  Once an elective becomes full, campers will have to choose among the remaining electives.  To be fair, we rotate the way that mini-electives are selected throughout the week.  

Can I register my child if I live in another country?

Yes, our summer camp program does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, religion, sex, age, national origin, or any other basis of discrimination prohibited by law.
