Signed up for 2019 Camp Autrey Mill- now what?

Thank you for enrolling your children in Autrey Mill’s Nature and Heritage Summer Camps. We are very excited about our camps this year and we are sure to have tons of fun while learning about nature and history. Below is some basic information regarding our camps:

Pre-Care Every other week we have pre-care options available (the weeks of June 3rd, June 17th, July 8th, and July 22nd). To drop off you may park in the gravel or paved lots. If you are registered drop off is at the Visitor Center at 8 am. To register visit: Pre-Care and After-Care Registration
Arrival Camps will begin promptly at 9:00 AM. Campers should plan on arriving no more than 15 minutes before the camp begins. You may park in the gravel or paved lots. On Monday mornings all campers will receive their camp shirts under the Chestnut Tree adjacent to the Visitor Center then walk to your designated drop off area.
Check-in/Check-out Tuesday- Friday, please walk your camper to designated drop off area (instructions will be given on Monday morning). Each camp leader will have a roster sign-in sheet, so please make sure you sign-in upon arrival and sign-out during pick-up. Teachers and staff will be available during this time to make sure you can quickly and easily complete this process.  Please give special instructions to counselors in writing as well as verbally, i.e. allergy info, early-pickup, alternative pick up, ect…
Lunch/Snack Campers will want to pack both a snack and lunch.  Please make sure all lunches and snacks are non-perishable and please try to limit peanut products due to potential allergies. Half day campers do not need lunch, but will need a snack.
Drinks While we do have water fountains available, we recommend all campers bring a refillable water bottle. Our hydration policy states that all campers must at least drink one full water bottle in the morning, refill it and drink it again in the afternoon.
Attire All campers should come prepared for both indoor and outdoor activities. Campers should bring a spare change of clothes just in case. Sturdy, closed –toe footwear is required. During Nature Camps, and because we require a pair of shoes to be worn in the creek, we suggest packing a pair of sandals or water shoes. Bug spray and sunscreen should be applied before camp begins.

Campers should receive their Camp shirts on Monday Morning and should wear them on Friday.

Pick-up Camps will be ending at 3:00 PM. Parents should plan on arriving promptly as they will be able to speak to their campers teachers at this time. Late pick-up policy- after a grace period of 15 minutes parents will be charged $1 per minute. Barring exceptional circumstances.

Discovery camp for 4-5 year olds will be ending at 12pm the weeks of June 3rd, June 17th, July 8th, and July 22nd. Pick up is at the Visitor Center.

After-Care Every other week we have aftercare options available (the weeks of June 3rd, June 17th, July 8th, and July 22nd ). Pick up is at the Program Barn no later than 5 pm. Late pick-up policy- after a grace period of 15 minutes parents will be charged $1 per minute (barring exceptional circumstances).

Cancellation Policy: Cancellation requests must be made in writing (via letter or email). 50% refund if cancellation is requested BEFORE May 28, 2019. No refunds after May 28, 2019. Switching between programs is allowed, based on availability. There is a fee of $20 per switch. If illness causes a child to miss 3 or more days of camp in one week, you may make up the days in a later available week. You will need to purchase days to complete a full week at a prorated cost. A doctor’s note is required for makeup days. Autrey Mill Nature Preserve reserves the right to cancel a camp due to insufficient enrollment. A full refund (excluding any membership fees) will be given should a camp be canceled.
