EARTH  WATER   FIRE

SUMMER CAMP 2021
<< Earth, Water, Fire >>

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

There will be both an on-campus AND a virtual option this year with a fantastic adaptation for "home use".   

 

Campers will be taught the exciting elements of preparing a camp space on three different optional levels: "traditional" camping (cool gadgets and camping gear),  "roughing it" camping (nothing but the woods!), and "indoor" camping (right in the comfort of your own home)!  With the interactive, informative, and FUN camp design, your kiddos will pretty much be able to take care of everything to set up a campsite by Friday!  You will all be invited to a wonderful experience complete with shelter, really good foods cooked over a fire, and plenty of entertainment activities to enjoy overnight in the great outdoors (or indoors)!

                                     On-Campus > $259 per camper         Virtual >> $59 per family

REGARDING COVID PROTOCOLS AT CAMP THIS YEAR

At WBNS we follow the current state and CDC guidelines laid out for public schools.  After April 12th they will not require temperature checks at arrival any longer, rather parents will need to perform the recommended wellness check on their children each day.  Staff uphold the sickness policy and send children home if they are not well and ready to participate.  Proper handwashing is taught, occurs regularly, and is monitored by staff.   *These particular practices will continue beyond covid times as they are just our general procedures.   Additionally, until further notice, masks are worn at all times on campus, inside and outside and social distancing is taught, practiced and enforced at all age levels.   *Stay tuned for more updates >>>>
