While camp is designed for a single session, some campers enjoy repeating camp. We allow repeat camps, however we ask that there be at least 2 weeks between repeat camps.
No, extended day options and supervision between camp sessions is not available. Quarry Hill campers should arrive and be picked up according to camp session start and end times.
We are happy to make reasonable accommodations for special needs. Parents and guardians with questions regarding the ability of camp staff to meet a child’s needs should contact the camp director before registering for camp.
Campers who require an aide in their school setting must be accompanied by an aide at camp. It is the responsibility of the camper’s family to provide this aide.
Due to group size restrictions, the Quarry Hill office needs to be made aware of any camper that will be accompanied by an aide prior to registration to ensure the group enrollment is within guidelines.
Campers should dress for the weather in comfortable clothing. Clothing and shoes may get dirty and wet. Campers should bring a water bottle filled with water only each day.
Even when it's raining, if there is no threat of severe weather, we will continue outdoor activities. In the event of inclement weather that prevents outdoor activity, camps will move indoors for alternate activities.
Safety is a priority at camp. All staff have first aid training and are trained in safety protocol for all camp activities.
We are available to answer your questions! Call us at the Nature Center office M-F from 9 am - 4 pm: 507-328-3950 or email us.
