After much consideration, research, and thought regarding possible covid-era adaptations for Nature & You Day Camp, I have come to the decision to cancel the program for the upcoming summer. As many of you are aware, our program follows current trends in promoting facilitated free play in a diverse natural outdoor setting. So far, there have been very few successful models for how to continually physical distance children during play from each other and from staff. Given this, I can not confidently state at this time that I can offer a program that is 100% safe for your children, our staff, and our community. I held onto hopes of this program being able to run safely. We know how much kids enjoy it each summer. And it would have been even more special as one of the first in-person social opportunities since schools were closed. For those who have already registered and paid, I will start submitting refunds over the next couple days. The payment should be reimbursed onto your credit card in the next 5-10 business days.
Thank you to all of you for your continuous support of our programs. - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - Returning this summer is our Nature & You Day Camp! This camp will operate out of North Bay Nordic Ski Club at 630 Northshore Rd. This phenomenal area provides the perfect playground for a whole plethora of outdoor, nature-based activities and games. Every activity is hands-on and geared toward getting kids outside to explore the outdoors in a fun, safe environment. The camp is run by Nature & You Outdoor Education staff, who have many years of experience working with children in an outdoor setting. Although many of the activities are outdoors and active, the days will also be structured with numerous low key activities and opportunities for food and rest to help kids pace themselves throughout the long, hot summer days.
Day Camp is open to ages 6-11 and Day Camp Jr. is open to ages 4-5. Scheduled programming runs from 9:00am to 4:00pm, with drop-off and pick-up any time between 8:00am and 4:45pm. The cost for either program is $180/Week or $40/Day ($155 Aug 4-7). Participants are expected to bring their own nut-free lunch. Additional snacks will be provided.
Program Highlights Throughout Each Week: Each day also includes outdoor games, and nature crafts. These are a rough outline of programs week, and this may change depending on weather and the group's interests.
