+ Bathroom breaks will occur twice during the day. Once at UNCC and once at Imaginon (large, multi-stall bathrooms). If a camper has to use to the bathroom while at the park, an adult counselor will walk with them to the bathroom, make sure it is empty and wait outside while they're using the restroom. Often times if the mens bathroom is in use we will have all campers use the women's bathroom since it is usually empty. Boys and girls will go individually.

+ Lunches and snacks do not have to be nut-free.

+ Please be sure to give an adult counselor any medications (i.e. epi-pens) if necessary.

+ We have a "No Hitting" rule at The Kind Ninja camp. Any fighting or striking is not allowed and will result in being asked to leave camp.

+ The Kind Ninja is a very mobile, child-led camp. We often will ask the campers if they'd like to stay longer at an activity if it is going well. We walk around the city a lot. Be sure to enforce our rules while at home such as staying with your counselor, not wandering off and listening to counselor's directions. Safety is the #1 priority of camp.
