During Young Explorers camp (previously Piedmont Polliwogs), your early learner will explore and engage with nature on our beautiful 900-acre field station. We aim to inspire feelings of curiosity and wonder for the natural world, while promoting healthy minds and bodies as children play and learn outside.
Each day has a different theme, which is explored through hands-on activities, a children’s book, and a short sensory walk. Returning campers should note that this is now a drop-off program, so each day will also include elements that build independence, such as learning how to open snack, asking for help, and helping others!
Ages: 5-6 at the time of camp. *This is a drop-off program*
Time: 9AM – 12PM, Monday – Friday
Cost: $95.00. Please note that the ticket will appear as “Free” until registration opens.
Cancellation Policy: Cancellations prior to 30 days before the start of camp will receive a refund, minus a $50 nonrefundable registration fee. Cancellations within 30 days of camp start date forfeit full tuition.
Paperwork: Within 1 week of registration, you will be emailed liability, medical, and emergency contact forms to be filled out and returned by April 15, 2023. If you do not submit your paperwork by this date, you will be refunded all but the $50 and the spot will be offered to the next person on the wait list. Paperwork is important for us to plan! Please send it to firstname.lastname@example.org upon completion!
Vaccination Policy: All staff and campers aged 5 and above must be fully vaccinated for COVID-19, in addition to being up-to-date with all Virginia Board of Health School Immunization requirements for the appropriate age (found here). Masks will be provided and required to be worn by all staff and campers should we need to be indoors during inclement weather or while administering first aid.
Scholarships: If you are interested in a scholarship, please email email@example.com before registering so that we can send you a scholarship application. We don’t want financial limitations to get in the way of your child attending camp!
