Our age groups have been chosen based on years of experience working with children and they are important for maintaining the quality of the camp experience.  PreK assumes students are 4 as of September 1st, 2018.  Please email the office for help if you have any questions.

Missing A Day of Camp: We are unable to offer make ups or to prorate camp tuition if your child misses a day of camp.  Exception: If you enroll in a camp that is already in session we will pro-rate your tuition for any days that have already passed.

Food Allergies: Although we do not provide meals for campers, campers may cook from the garden and could be exposed to eggs, fruits, vegetables or other basic baking supplies.  At the time of registration, please disclose any specific dietary needs, especially around eggs, dairy or wheat.  Cooking projects in the past have included enjoying scrambled eggs, home-made ranch dressing, butter made with heavy cream, crackers (gluten-free option available), goat milk smoothies, goat cheese, fruits, vegetables and fruit juice popsicles.  You are welcome to note any/all sensitivities or say you prefer your camper not eat ranch snacks.
