Your child should be dressed comfortably for outdoor activities. Campers must wear their critter camp shirts & name tag daily so that staff & volunteers can easily identify them. Be sure to wear closed toe shoes, wear lots of sunscreen, and bring a hat!
Maps and instructions will be emailed to parents 1 week prior to camp.
Before & After Care will be provided to campers for a $50 fee that covers the entire week. Camp ends at 3pm. After Care is from 3pm to 5pm for Summer Sessions only.
Make sure your child brings lunch and snacks for the day and has his/her name clearly written on the bag. Based on the CDC’s recommendation, we will not be providing snacks for campers to limit potential cross-contamination.
To keep our campers hydrated, please have your child bring a refillable water bottle.
Each camper will need to bring a bag (e.g. backpack) suitable for storing extra clothes and individual supplies provided by us for camp (e.g. arts & crafts supplies).
The shelter is not a nut free environment.
Cat or dog allergies should be mentioned before camp projects to protect from allergic reactions.
EpiPens should be with the camper at all times.
