Dear Parents,

Thank you for considering American Heritage Summer Day Camp for your child. American Heritage has been providing summer fun for young campers since 1981.

Today, we share the philosophy of an increasing number of parents and educators who have a different view of the summer camp experience. It is generally recognized that it is essential for a child to share in the growing experiences that summer camp provides, activities that help build confidence and self-esteem. Campers enjoy the challenges and rewards of teamwork as they work and play with other campers who make up their cabin. Through numerous activities offered, the camper continues to develop the socialization skills begun in school. Our campers enjoy good relationships with the high school and college counselors who serve as role models for them. All of this takes place in a safe, FUN summer camp. We encourage you to give your child a summer of FUN and more. Over the years, the usefulness of summer camp experience has changed for our campers. When we opened our doors in '81, most parents viewed summer camp as a convenient way to provide day care for their children during the summer months. Please look over the information that follows. You will get a good idea of what American Heritage Summer Day Camp is all about.

Tours are available by appointment throughout the year. For more information, please call me at 954-472-0022.

Yours truly,
Wayne Lenoff

SUMMER CAMP STAFF

Our Summer Day Camp is directed by state certified teachers and college or high school students who have been carefully screened by us as well as the FDLE Services of the State of Florida. Many of our counselors are students or alumni of our school or have been campers or Counselors In Training for a number of years. They are responsible and caring young people who bring a variety of experiences and expertise to their counseling position. Our directors and paid staff members are assisted by volunteer CIT's (Counselor In Training). CIT's range in age from 14 to 15 years old. They are well-trained in safety and camp policies.

American Heritage Summer Day Camp is "More than Great Fun" for children 3-13 years of age. Cabins for ages 3-5 are co-ed, while ages 6-13 have separate boys and girls cabins. Each age level enjoys age appropriate activities supervised by our highly qualified staff. All cabins (which are classrooms during the school year) are air conditioned and campers take pride in decorating them to reflect the cabin's theme.

In addition to the staff of teachers and counselors, each cabin group is assigned to an adult Unit Director who insures that the staff directly supervising the campers is doing its assigned jobs properly. The Unit Director also handles schedule changes and any discipline problems which may occur within the cabin.

Meals

A nutritious meal will be served daily to all campers whether on campus or when participating in off-campus activities. Snacks will be served to all campers daily. Please do not pack your camper's lunch. Contact the camp director if your child must bring a special lunch due to food allergies.

Transportation

Optional bus transportation for American Heritage Day Camp is provided by C & L Bus Company, Inc. Whenever possible, house-to-house pickup is provided except in areas where camper population is sparse. C & L Bus Company, Inc, will contact you by phone two days prior to the first day of each session and advise you of the exact time and place of pickup for your camper. Please direct transportation inquiries to C & L Bus Company, Inc, at (954) 472-7800.

We are now offering: FREE nonstop central bus service from: NE/ SE Ft. Lauderdale, Parkland, Coral Springs, Aventura, Pembroke Pines/Miramar, Weston, Hollywood/Hallandale.

Age

Children must have reached their third (3rd) birthday on or before August 1st. We accept children up to 13 years of age, as long as they do not reach their 14th birthday before August 1st. If your child is age 3 or 13, proof of age is required.

Clothing

We advise informal, cool summer clothing. Shorts and a tee-shirt are recommended. Because of the nature of summer camp, shoes or sneakers are required. Please bring a bathing suit and dry towel every day. Experience has proven that it is unwise for campers to bring money, watches, jewelry, games, or any other valuables to camp, as they are easily lost during a busy camp day. We will not be responsible for lost or stolen personal items.

Infirmary

A Registered Nurse will be present on campus from 8:00 AM to 5:00 PM. Our Infirmary is well-equipped to handle any minor injuries which may arise. In the event of a serious injury, every effort will be made to contact you immediately. All medications are kept in the Infirmary and dispensed by our Registered Nurse.
