Details

  • Locations: We meet and spend quality time in natural areas of Santa Cruz County, from Westside to Felton. Ex. Henry Cowell State Park, Natural Bridges State Park, Pogonip, Harvey West Park.

  • Parents or caregivers are responsible of drop-off and pick-up at the location of the day.

  • Pod Style: We have small size groups intended to be stable to facilitate building connections and lowering risk of covid-19 contagion.

  • Payment: All payments are due in advance. Families must pay per session which include 4-5 days of camp. Payment due first day of session.

  • Before camp: Parents need to fill up emergency and waiver forms, in order to participate.

  • Cancelation due weather conditions: Classes happen rain-or-shine, unless unsafe weather conditions or air pollution. Cancelations will be notified 3 hours prior camp via message. I will reschedule at a later day or following week.

  • Refunds will not be given if a student is sick, on vacation or any other personal reason.

Hygiene

  • Students are required to bring a just-washed mask to camp.

  • We wash or sanitize our hands upon arrival, before snack-lunch and after bathroom.

  • I always have sanitizer (alcohol based) with me.

  • I always carry a First Aid package in case of minor injuries.

Covid-19

  • Teacher and Aids are fully vaccinated

  • We follow CDC guidance for operating Youth Camps

  • Mask indoors: As today mask is %100 required while indoors. Ex. Library, bathrooms, museums. Participant students need to bring a mask in their backpacks always.

  • Mask outdoors: As today non-required or optional. However, if you want your children to wear a mask, let me know to keep an eye on it.

  • Do not attend camp if you child has covid-19 related symptoms. Your child can resume camp if negative test is presented or 7 days after symptoms onset.

  • Illness: If student gets ill during camp, I will isolate the student and contact parents or other emergency contacts to pick up.
