Due to our need to maintain student-to-instructor ratios, make-up classes for summer camp programs are not available. Pre-Planned absences can be forwarded to the KidSpirit Office by calling 541-737-KIDS (5437) or emailing us.
Please inform the KidSpirit office of any allergies and/or medications your child is currently taking. You can do this at the time of registration, or by logging into your ideal-logic account and editing your camper's medical information. All campers requiring medication at camp must fill out an additional form and bring the medication in the original container to the KidSpirit office, in 125 Langton Hall, before the start of the camp session. All medications will be kept in the KidSpirit office and dispensed as prescribed by a doctor. Please keep allergies and other medical needs updated with KidSpirit so we may provide your camper everything they need!
OSU KidSpirit qualify as Child and Dependent Care Expenses for tax purposes. These payments may also be used as qualified expenses for your Health and Flexible Spending Arrangement. Consult your tax advisor or IRS Publication 503 for more complete information.
Visitors must first check-in at the KidSpirit Office in Langton 125. They will be required to show picture ID verifying they are on the authorized pick-up/visitor list. A visitor pass will be issued and is to be worn at all times. Lunch visitors can get a visitor pass from the lunch supervisor table. Some classes do special presentations or performances, so visitor passes can be issued at the performance directly. Instructors will notify campers and guardians if this is the case.
Bring a backpack with a lunch (see above for lunch information), a refillable water bottle, snacks, and sunscreen. Campers enrolled in swimming should bring a swimsuit, towel, and bag to put them in after class (goggles are optional). Equipment is provided for camp classes, but campers may bring their own equipment. KidSpirit will not be held liable for any loss or damage of any personal belongings.
Games, toys, stuffed animals, action figures, trading cards or electronic devices are not appropriate for camp. Radios, iPods, walkmans, money, and other valuables should be left at home. All cell phones must remain off during camp hours. Messages for your child can be left at the KidSpirit office at 541-737-KIDS (5437).
To be properly dressed for active classes, all campers MUST wear athletic shoes. Swim classes require a swimsuit and towel. Gymnastics classes require clothing free of buttons and zippers along with long hair pulled back.
