From my (Megan) time spent working at day camps I found the following to be useful for kids between 5-10 whether they are yours or not.
I take them to a central location, The Walt and Micky statue at the center hub of Disneyland for example. Then give them a talk with the following highlights.
- There are 6 of you and 1 of me so it is your responsibility to know where I am not the other way around. I’m not abdicating responsibility for watching them, just making them feel some of the responsibility.
- If you get lost, DON’T STRESS! Stay where you are for 5 minutes. we will notice you are gone and go back to where we last saw you.
- If we don’t return in the 5minutes come back to this meeting spot if you can. If you can’t then find an employee and tell them you are supposed to meet your leader (parent) at the _______________. The employee may wan to take you to a lost kid center and that is fine too. I will find you and we won’t leave without you.
- All purchases will be made after lunch.
