Drop Off & Pick-up
ARRIVAL TIME: Arrival time is 9am. If your child is going to be late or absent, please let us know by calling 949-645-8489.
DROP-OFF: A parent/guardian must escort their child up to the check-in table in the breezeway (for Nature Adventure camp). 4-year-olds are in Little Naturalist camp and will get checked-in at the classrooms, down the hall of our museum building. Science Explorer campers will get checked-in by the side gate, just to the right of our rain chain.
PICK UP: Little Naturalist campers will get picked-up in the same classrooms. Science Explorers campers will get picked up at the same side gate. Nature Adventure campers will get picked up from our amphitheater area (where they gather each morning to sing songs).
SIGN-OUT: We will request to see your ID on the first day, or whenever an unfamiliar person picks up your child.
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.
