Upon arrival, check in to the program with our leaders before making your way into the gymnasium. Group lists are posted near the entrance of the Sportsplex Gym. Find the program you have selected and your name will appear on one of the group lists below. Parent/guardians sign in their child by writing in drop off time and signature. Camp staff should also be notified at this time if someone other than an authorized person is picking the child up at the end of the day. Note the person picking up the child must provide photo ID before the child will be released into their care.

First day

Arrival and check-in on the first day is typically slower compared to other days of the week. Please allow yourself some additional time to get checked in.

Late arrivals

If you arrive after 9am, check-in at the reception desk in the Dakota Fieldhouse. We will connect you with your group!                         

Lunch

Our program is action-packed. We recommend sending a healthy lunch with additional snacks throughout the day. Microwaves are not available.

Allergy aware environment

We do our best to create an environment that is allergy aware but we cannot guarantee that all spaces will be free of your child’s allergens.

Participants are expected to bring food that does not include nuts. In the event of a severe food allergy in your child’s group, you may be expected to avoid additional foods or ingredients.

Lunch hour activities

Participants may be shown a G-rated movie for a portion of the lunch hour. In addition to nutrition and hydration the lunch hour is designed as a rest & recovery period for the participants before they resume their afternoon activities.

Check out

Find your group sign and check out with our leaders by presenting your photo identification. Children will only be released to individuals that have been authorized for pick up and produce Photo ID.

Absent from camp

If you are not able to make it to your scheduled programming for the day, please let us know by telling your group leader in advance or by calling 204-254-1010 or sending an email to jared@dakotacc.com.

And on the final day we have a spectacular rocket launch...parents welcome. In addition, each camper will make his/her own rocket to take home and launch! (Under supervision, of course.)
