Important Information

Each camp will have a field trip on Wednesdays to a local business or other organization. Further information regarding the field trips will be provided in the Camp Welcome Packet.
If you will be dropping off and picking up your child for the camp instead of using the free transportation option, all parents/guardians must accompany their child into the front entrance of the College Campus location where your child will be attending the camp for daily check-in/check-out during the camp. No drop‐offs prior to 30 minutes before the camp is scheduled to start are permitted. Parents/Guardians are asked to make arrangements to pick-up students promptly at the end of camp. If you cannot pick-up your child due to an emergency, please contact the Skills Today: Careers for Tomorrow Office at (608) 757-7701 or
For the safety of the child, if a child needs to be picked‐up early, the program staff must receive notification of the time of early checkout for the child. 
Children may be photographed or interviewed while attending the camps. These items may be used on promotional materials for future programming. There is a Release of Audio and Visual materials as part of the registration process.

All students will be required to have Emergency Contact information on file. This information is part of the registration process and will need to be completed when submitting information contained in the Camp Welcome Packet. 

A Skills Today: Careers for Tomorrow staff member will inform parents if a child is injured. A parent/guardian or emergency contact person designated by the parent must be available by phone in case of an emergency. In the event it becomes necessary for staff to obtain emergency care for your child, neither he/she nor the college assumes financial liability for expenses incurred. Parents should ensure that a child has personal medical coverage & accident insurance.

Blackhawk Technical College staff cannot administer any medication, prescription, non‐prescription or over the counter medicines to students. If a student needs to take medication during class, an Authorization to Self Medicate form provided and completed by your child’s physician must be provided to the program coordinator. A separate form must be completed for each medication, whether it is prescription or over the counter.

The program staff will provide a fun, relaxed and educational environment for the students. Participants are expected to demonstrate appropriate behavior and to follow the directions of staff. Behavior such as: aggressiveness and anger, fighting, inappropriate touching, verbal abuse, negative attitude and insubordination towards staff will not be tolerated.

The staff is knowledgeable about the traits and needs of school children and will attempt to diminish disruptive behavior by: Using preventive management techniques, encouraging self‐discipline, stressing positive behaviors, establishing class rules and guidelines.

Immediate behavioral problems will be handled by the instructor. Recurring behavioral problems will be referred to the Summer Camp Coordinator and parents will be notified. The instructor will employ the previously mentioned classroom management techniques. However, should the behavior continue or be severe enough, dismissal from the program may occur. Refunds will not be granted if a student is dismissed from the program due to disciplinary action.
