Signed up for 2020 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 week we have pre-care options available. You may park in the gravel or paved lots. If you are registered, drop off is at the Visitor Center at 8am.|
|Arrival||Camps will begin promptly at 9:00 AM. Campers should plan on arriving no more than 15 minutes before the camp starts. You may park in the gravel or paved lots. On Monday mornings, all campers will check in at the Pole Barn (our covered picnic pavilion) adjacent to the Visitor Center.|
|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||Full Day Campers will want to pack both a snack and a lunch. Half Day Campers will want to pack a snack. Please make sure all lunches and snacks are non-perishable, and please try to limit peanut products due to potential allergies. We encourage you to consider a trash-free lunch. Find more information at: http://www.wastefreelunches.org/parents.html|
|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, we require an extra pair of shoes to be worn in the creek, packing a pair of sandals or water shoes to use in and out of water. Bug spray and sunscreen should be applied before camp begins.
Discovery Campers: Please send your child in water clothes for Wild Water Camp.
Campers will receive their Camp shirts on Monday and should wear them on Friday.
|Pick-up||Camps will be ending at 3:00 PM. Parents should plan on arriving promptly; they will be able to speak to their camper’s counselors at this time.
The late pick-up policy states that after a grace period of 15 minutes, we will begin charging parents $1 per minute (barring exceptional circumstances).
Discovery Camp for 4 year olds will end at 12pm.
|After-Care||Select weeks we have after care options available (the weeks of June 1st, June 15th, June 22nd, July 6th, and July 20th). Pick up is at the Program Barn no later than 5pm. The late pick-up policy states that after a grace period of 15 minutes, will begin charging parents $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 24, 2020. No refunds after May 24, 2020. Switching between programs is allowed, based on availability. There is a fee of $20 per switch. If illness causes a child to miss three 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 cancelled.
