PARENTS

parent dayParent Day
On the final day of Camp, a parenting seminar is led by the Camp director and key facilitators. This program gives parents an overview of their teen’s experience, as well as specific skills designed to support teens in retaining the maximum value from what they have learned. The program’s final hours feature a parent and teen reunion and a presentation of communication and negotiation skills to support the ‘ohana (family) environment. It is very important that you attend this segment of the program.

Child Care
Please make every possible attempt to find child care for siblings on Parent Day: small children tend to get restless. It’s best to give all of your focus and attention to your teen who has just experienced a very intense and transformational time.

Medications and Wellness
All registration forms include an area to list medications needed and special instructions. If you wish to further communicate about medical needs, please contact us. Winners’ Camp has a wellness person on site at all times. The wellness person is responsible for distributing prescription medications and providing medication reminders to campers who request it. On the first day of camp, you may bring your teen’s medications in a see-through plastic ziploc bag. Please write your teen’s name clearly on the outside of the bag (marker is fine). Enclose instructions in the bag. We will collect medications on Registration Day when you drop off your teen.

During Camp
We’ll be doing our very best to post photos on our blog and send you email updates with photo links, so you can see your teen’s smiling face and get a sense of what they’re experiencing while they are up on the mountain.
