[The details] Camps are designed for the grade your child will be entering in the fall.  7th graders-12th graders are able to volunteer as “Camp Rangers” for any of the Pre-K/K or 1st-3rd, and 4th-6th grade programs.

If your child is staying for lunch, we have a supervised lunch hour from 12-1pm.  There is an additional cost of $2 per day that your child eats with staff. You will need to provide a healthy lunch with minimal waste for your child. 

Please make sure you send extra clothes (shirt, shorts, undies, socks, etc.), a towel, a refillable water bottle, and water shoes on the first day.  Campers can leave their things in their cubbies for the entire week, as needed.  We will send home any wet clothes or shoes daily.

Camp happens rain or shine–please be prepared for the weather!

[Jr. Ranger Program] CEC’s Jr. Ranger program allows students to assist with our summer adventure programs.  We prefer that your child is going into 7th grade or older.  This year, in order to become a Summer Camp Ranger, you must get certification by attending the Jr/Teen Master Naturalist Certification Camp the week of June 3-7 from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. There will be an application for each student to fill out (due at the end of the week and we will need to know the camps/date that they are wanting to help with by the end of the week.  There are limited Camp Ranger positions available and preference will be given to those who have completed Jr. Naturalist training and/or have previous Camp Ranger experience.

If your child is in Conservation Camp or Wilderness Survival, please make sure he/she brings their lunch to camp.  We also ask that you try and work with your child to pack a lunch that is as “trash-free” as possible! These two weeks also include an overnight option on Thursday night.  Campers will need to bring sleeping gear and be prepared to sleep in a tent. Campers will need to be picked up at noon on Friday.
