Each individual event will be addressed according to behavior expectations identified in the camper handbook.  Ignite Day Camp strives to offer a group experience and opportunities for learning within the boundaries of safety, common sense and the law. We reserve the right to terminate the participation of any camper, without refund and without formal hearing, whom we believe has violated the conditions for participation or has become a hindrance to the group or goals of the program.

Any camper who can manage in a traditional school setting should thrive at Ignite Day Camp. Ignite is led by a team of teachers from New Way Academy, who are equipped with the expertise required to meet the needs of children with a wide variety of differences.  However, because children’s safety is paramount, some prospective campers’ physical or emotional considerations may require extra help that is beyond our camp’s staffing & resource limitations.  Please call the camp office to discuss your child’s specific needs and to find out if Ignite is the appropriate summer placement.

Campers are required to bring a lunch and water bottle to camp, daily. We collect lunches in the morning and keep them refrigerated throughout the day. Lunch is scheduled for full day campers only from 12pm-1pm.

You can drop off your child at the cafeteria as early as 7:45 am. If your child is late, have them go to the front office so a camp counselor can be notified to help assist them in joining their group. We ask that you pick up your child at the same place in front of the chow hall between 4:00pm-4:15pm.

We will provide a backpack, personal sunscreen, and a chapstick at the beginning of camp.  Each day, we ask that parents send their campers having already applied sunscreen.  We recommend that campers should bring their own personal sunscreen to re-apply throughout the day to ensure the safety of each camper as they may be exposed to the elements of the Phoenix summer sun.  Daily snacks will be provided at 10am for morning campers and again at 2:30pm for afternoon. Your child will need a water bottle, lunch and any desired additional snacks. Ignite will have “hydration stations” set up throughout campus for campers to utilize during breaks and as needed throughout the day. Campers should wear clothing appropriate for being active and outdoors, and a sweatshirt for any activities that will be indoors (buildings are air-conditioned).

We will have a medical assistant on campus in the mornings, and a medical professional available on call in the afternoons to assist each of the campers in the event they get sick.

The ratio of staff to campers is 1:8 on average (depending on the age level). The age range of counselors is 19 and up. They have completed at least one year of college, and undergo 5 days of thorough training prior to the start of camp covering topics such as safety and risk management issues, team building, counseling skills, and communication and teaching skills.  Each Ignite staff member is required to follow all protocol in compliance with the ACA standards (American Camp Association) which includes (but is not limited to) background checks, livescan fingerprinting, and national sex offender clearance to ensure the safety of our campers at all times. Our activities are geared toward the developmental needs and interests of each age group. We protect the quality of the experience by limiting the number of campers in each group based on ACA standards. Smaller groups create better bonding, and we want the students to get to know one another and counselors are better able to manage the experience.

We are in the process of becoming certified by ACA (American Camp Association).  This means that we will meet or exceed more than 300 standards of health safety, and program excellence. Our staff goes through a minimum of one week of staff training and are certified in First Aid and CPR.  We follow all safety precautions as mandated by the ACA. Safety is always our top priority at camp.
