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.


How old does my child have to be to go to Discovery Camp?

Pre-K through 6th grade. Campers must be potty trained.

What time does Discovery Camp begin?

Camp begins at 9:00am and ends at 3:00pm. Campers may be dropped off as early as 8:45am and picked up as late as 3:15pm.

My children are a few years a part, can they be in the same group?

Yes, however our campers are divided into groups by grade level. Curricula and activities are designed for these different groups which are developmentally distinct from each other.

What is the registration deadline?

All camp registrations remain open until camp is full. Even if the camp has already begun.

How many campers are in each group?

Enrollment is limited to small classes of 12 students per teacher with volunteers.

Who are the Camp Teachers?

All of the camp teachers are AHLF employees in our Academy for Environmental Stewardshio who teach here throughout the school year.

What will the kids be doing?

Each camp involves learning about nature in nature with hands on activities, take home recycled crafts, nature hikes and animal interactions. The specific cirriculum and lessons will be unique to the camp theme. Each week has a different theme and different activities. Feel free to sign up for more than one session!

Does Discovery Camp provide snack or lunch?

No, each camper is responsible for bringing their own snack nd lunch. Discovery Camp includes a snack and lunch break each day.
