All camps take place outdoors in our Nature Nodes, and are filled with nature walks, animal interactions, and crafts.

Covid-19 Program Accommodations: 

We are closely monitoring the Center for Disease Control and the County of San Diego’s reopening guidelines to ensure our on-site programs take every measure to keep our students, families, and staff safe.

CDC Guideline regarding face masks for children: 

“Younger children (e.g., preschool or early elementary aged) may be unable to wear a mask properly, particularly for an extended period of time. Wearing of masks may be prioritized at times when it is difficult to maintain a distance of 6 feet from others (e.g., during carpool drop off or pick up, or when standing in line at school). Ensuring proper mask size and fit and providing children with frequent reminders and education on the importance and proper wear of masks may help address these issues.”

Physical Distancing: While it is unrealistic to expect children to maintain 6 feet of distance from each other at all times during the camp day, we will be doing what we can to maintain physical distancing. 

Face masks: Children will be required to wear masks at pick-up and drop-off each day, as our parking lot is a high-traffic area.  Campers must have their masks with them at all times (fastened around the neck) and wear their masks when they are not physically distanced.
