Capen Hill Science and Nature Camp 2021 will start July 5th with 4 one week sessions. Each session will have different activities. Hours are 9-3 (drop off starting at 8) with aftercare until 5:00 for $25 per day if needed by parent. Ages are from 5-13 years. Campers will be put into groups according to their age. The cost is $200 per week. They will spend the week learning about nature while having fun!
We also offer a Counselor In Training course for 14 years and up. The course is $150 for the week. If a CIT Counselor comes back the following weeks there is no charge. Great way to get community service hours(35 hours per week) and looks great on your resume! The first meeting for the CIT will be at the Visitor center on Friday, June 25th from 10-3 so if interested mark it down.
Return CITs (previously Jr. Counselors) do not need to take the course and will meet with the Camp director on a date to be announced.
Capen Hill Science and Nature Camp 2021 Response to COVID-19: We are moving forward with camp planning to ensure we continue to offer a summer camp experience full of nature and fun! The health and safety of our campers and staff remain our priority. We are so happy to open up our doors at Capen and welcome campers and counselors to their summer camp and see our old friends again. There will be enhanced screening (temperature taken and questions asked) and sanitation procedures to ensure everyone’s safety. All counselors will be vaccinated.
