What to do on Day One!
Campers must check in each day at the check in table, in the breezeway between our two buildings. They will be given their name badges and place their snack/lunches in their group basket. Campers then walk to the “Log Area” for morning assembly.
If you like, you can read the Camp Orientation with lots of great info that Campers hear on their first day of Nature Camp.
If it is actively raining: Check-in will be inside at the front desk.
Absences & Dress Code
ABSENCES: If your child will be late or absent, notify ENC staff by the morning of the absence.
CLOTHING: Your camper should wear rubber-soled, closed-toe shoes (NO SANDALS). Dress in layers, since most of our time will be spent outside. Sun protection (hat and sunscreen) is recommended.
Snack & Lunch Break
Between 10:15 and 10:30 AM each day campers will have a snack break. Campers will have a lunch break around 12PM. Please pack your camper(s) a healthy snack, lunch and a beverage. Reusable water bottles and food containers marked with the camper’s name are encouraged. Our camp teachers thank you for NOT giving your kids snacks with lots of refined sugar and packaging!
Campers must respect all human, animal, and plant life in the Center. Campers that physically abuse another camper, or an animal while at the ENC, will be dismissed from camp immediately. No exceptions to the policy will be allowed. The ENC encourages parents to support the Center’s Behavior Policy so that all campers will have a safe, fun, and educational experience at ENC Nature Camp.
