Can my child call home? We do not allow campers to have cell phones while at camp. Campers may call home only in the case of an emergency. Due to the packed schedule campers will not have access to a phone. Campers may only call home through the nurse or the educational program director. It is recommended that parents only call the center in the case of an emergency.

What all will my child be doing at camp? Campers will rotate through educational classes throughout the day. They will have 2 hours of free time, a night assembly, and a night activity. It will be a full day of hands on learning.

How do I register my child for camp? Complete a registration form online and mail in a $100 deposit. Your child is not registered until the deposit is received. We accept checks and money orders.

When is my balance due? The balance is due at check-in on the day camp starts. Express check-in will be available to those who send in the remaining balances and forms prior to camp.

Can I get my money back if my child decides not to come? The $100 deposit is always non-refundable. If the child is paid in full the balance may be refunded if the spot can be filled with plenty of notice.

Can I get my money back if my child does not complete the entire week? In emergency cases only partial refunds may be refunded at director's discretion.

What if my child has medications or medical concerns? Is there a nurse on site? A nurse will be at Wildlife Camp 24 hours a day. All medications will be administered through the nurse and must be turned in at registration. Parents/Guardians will have the opportunity to speak with the nurse at registration.
