You remember like it was yesterday-the first time you packed your bags for summer camp. There you were, a bundle of energy ready to dive into a world of new adventures, friendships, and endless summer fun. The memories of campfires, fun-packed team sports, and late-night whispers with your new camp buddies are forever etched in your heart.

Fast forward to now-as you stand on the brink of sending your own little adventurer off to a Los Angeles summer camp. It’s like watching a mini version of yourself, isn’t it? You’re brimming with excitement for them, but those concerned parent goggles never really come off, do they?

We get it. The safety and well-being of your child is your top priority-and it’s ours, too, here at Got Game Sports.

Here’s a glimpse into how we keep your kids safe during summer camps.

Empowered Camp Staff 

We recognize that reasonable supervision of campers is essential to ensure their safety. That’s why we don’t take any chances when it comes to the quality of hire at our summer camps.

Our camp staff are fully capable of providing a safe and healthy environment for your child. Here’s why:

They’re Experienced Professionals 

Our staff aren’t just summer employees-they’re seasoned pros. Many are PE teachers, after-school directors, coaches, and educators who specialize in a variety of fields.

This means they bring a wealth of experience in handling children of all ages, which is super important when it comes to creating a safe environment. They’ve seen it all and know how to respond in any situation.

They’re CPR and First Aid Certified

Accidents happen, but our team is prepared. Every staff member is CPR and first aid certified.

Whether it’s a scraped knee or something more serious, they have the skills to ensure immediate and effective care. It’s like having a safety net around your child at all times.

They’re Background-Checked and Trustworthy

Your child’s safety is our top priority. That’s why we ensure every team member has undergone thorough background checks and livescan fingerprinting.

You can breathe easier knowing we’ve dotted our i’s and crossed our t’s when it comes to staff reliability and trustworthiness.

They Undergo Health Screening

With TB testing for all staff, we help prevent TB and make sure that the health of your child is not compromised. We understand that peace of mind comes from knowing your child is in an environment free from preventable health conditions.

They Get Trained Regularly

Our staff regularly go through a safety training course to stay sharp and up-to-date with the best practices in child safety and care. This commitment to continuous improvement means your child benefits from the latest and greatest in camp safety protocols.

Scheduled Activities Wrapped in Safety

At Got Game Sports, the daily schedule at each of our summer camp for kids is thoughtfully crafted to keep your kiddos safe while they’re having a blast. Let’s see how each part of the schedule prioritizes safety.

  1. Extended Care

We know life can be unpredictable. That’s why we offer extended care hours, ensuring your child is supervised and safe, even if your schedule changes at the last minute. It’s peace of mind for you and extra fun for them!

  1. Check-In & Supervised Free-Play

The day kicks off with a structured check-in process. During supervised free play, our staff is on high alert, conducting a head count to ensure every child is accounted for and engaged in safe play. It’s our warm-up for a day of fun, ensuring everyone starts on the right foot.

  1. Camp Orientation

This is where we set the tone for safety! Camp orientation is crucial as it’s when we go over rules, expectations, and safety procedures. Think of it as laying down the ground rules for fun without fuss.

  1. Activity Rotations

Our activity rotations are more than just fun and games. Each activity is supervised by trained staff, ensuring your child is safe while exploring and learning new skills.

These structured time slots also mean we always know where your child is-no guesswork involved!

  1. Snack and Lunch Breaks

Breaks are important! We make sure all our campers refuel in a safe and supervised environment. It’s a time to rest, eat, and get ready for more fun, making sure they have the energy they need to enjoy the day fully.

  1. Supervised Free Play

This period allows your child to relax and choose activities they enjoy, under the watchful eyes of our staff. It’s a perfect blend of freedom and safety, ensuring they feel both autonomous and secure.

At Got Game Sports, we make sure fun is always paired with safety so you can relax knowing your little ones are in good hands. Bring them knowing they’re set for a day packed with exciting, safe, and supervised activities.

Ensuring Safety Through Age-Appropriate Grouping 

How we group campers is a crucial aspect of creating a secure and enjoyable environment during our Los Angeles summer camps for kids.

We organize our campers into specific age divisions, including:

  • Rookies (ages 4-5)
  • Pros (ages 6-7)
  • Upper Pros (ages 8-9)
  • Veterans (ages 10-12)

Grouping campers by age allows us to tailor activities and experiences to their developmental stage. This means campers are closely monitored by professionals who understand the unique needs and challenges of each age group. Your child will be engaged in activities that are not only fun and suitable for their age but also safe.

We believe in flexibility, so if you or your child feels that a different age division is a better fit for any reason, we’re more than happy to make adjustments.
