Questions & Answers

Q: What do you do if it is raining or will rain during a camp day?

A: You will be contacted for an alternative drop off location if weather is bad. If we are on a bike field trip when weather rolls in, we will seek shelter at the safest, nearest public building until the weather subsides. This includes weather such as; rain, extreme heat, smoke, lightening, etc. Be sure you pack all the proper gear for your camper!

Q: Can my child bring and use their own sunscreen?

A: Yes! We supply all of our Campers with generic sunscreen to re-apply during the day. But, if you prefer your child to use the sunscreen you supply, that is not a problem! We will still supervise the application.

Q: How do I pick my kid up early?

A: You will be given your child's teachers phone number to coordinate early pick up, if we are out on our bike field trip. We ask that if you need to pick up early, to let the teacher know in the morning.

Q: How much food should I pack?

A: Lots! :) Be sure the food you pack is rich in protein, good fibers and natural sugars. The Campers use a TON of energy riding bikes around town in the Summer sun. Good, healthy lunches are a must!

Q: When & How do I pay?

A: Payment is due at the time of enrollment. Payment plans can be scheduled upon request. Contact Mrs. Vivienne @ niftynannydgo@gmail.com

Q: How far do the Campers bike?

A: Each age group will bike as far as their weakest rider. Our Lead Teachers spend a lot of time observing Campers on our bike field trips to ensure we only bike the safest distances for all Campers. Age groups will bike distances according to ability. Some trips will only be .5 miles, while others may be 5 miles. 

Q: Do we need to bring our child's bike daily?

A: Yes! We will ride our bikes everyday. You can leave your child's bike locked on the bike rack overnight at the Smiley Building at your own discretion.

Q: Why is there an Enrollment Application Fee?

A: The Enrollment Application Fee is applied towards your child's Welcome to Summer Camp gift and covers administrative time necessary to complete enrollment on the backside.

Q: Can my child attend if they ride training wheels?

A: No. We require all of our Campers to be able to ride a two-wheel pedal bike. 

Q: Is there early drop off or late pick up availability?

A: Not at this time.

Q: How do I change my child's Summer Schedule with you?

A: Log into your account and submit a transfer request. Or email Mrs. Vivienne @ niftynannydgo@gmail.com
