What to Bring: Campers will spend their time both indoors and outdoors during camp programs. Your child should wear clothes that are suitable for messy outdoor activities and shoes that can get wet, muddy, dirty… Campers need to bring a water bottle to stay well hydrated as well as a snack each day; labeled with first and last name. We highly recommend that campers bring a change of clothes and shoes each day, along with a small towel for cleaning up, and a backpack to carry it all. On light rain days we advise that your child also bring a plastic poncho; heavy rain days/stormy days, activities will be held indoor.
Lunch (Sapling day only): Please send a peanut-free lunch for your child that does not require refrigeration. Campers will eat lunch together during our supervised lunch break.
Special Health Needs: If your child has special health needs please let us know during registration. It is the parent’s responsibility to provide all necessary information to the Baird Creek Preservation Foundation prior to your child attending camp.
Staffing: In order to provide the best possible experiences for your children, all camps are limited to 12 campers. Camps are led by Foundation staff with assistance from interns and volunteers. Please plan to register early.
Rules & Expectations: Be Respectful – attentive listening; Be Responsible – of your own items, camp equipment, others space; Be Safe – listen to instructors at all times. Your child will hear these expectations in depth on the first day of camp but please share them and discuss beforehand. Thank you!

Campers should be picked up at the Chalet (unless notified differently) promptly at the end of camp. THE PERSON PICKING UP NEEDS TO BRING ID!
