Dear Wild Bear Family,
We would like to thank you for registering your child for Wild Bear’s 25th summer camp, beginning June 1 through August 6. We look forward to another extraordinary summer at Wild Bear and are thrilled that you will be part of it. In order for us to be successful, we ask that you help us prepare your camper for the day.
We need each family to fill out at least 2 weeks prior to your camp start date our intake packet. This information is critical to the health and happiness of your camper.
Please read your parent handbook thoroughly to understand the specific rules regarding our policies.
Drop-off and Pick-Up options :
1. Local Drop Off and Pick Up at Wild Bear Nature Center
By state law you must sign your child in and out of the Center. Please drop your child off at the Eco-Arts Lounge at Wild Bear Mountain Ecology Center no earlier than 8:00am. Campers feel most comfortable if they can arrive prior to 9:00am when we begin opening circle. Pick up times are between 3:30pm and 4:00 at Wild Bear Ecology Center in Nederland.
2. There will be NO Boulder Shuttle to Wild Bear Nature Center in Nederland this summer.
3. NCAR Fridays in Boulder is cancelled this summer.
A prepared camper is a happy camper! Because we are primarily an outdoor program, we encourage you to equip your child with the appropriate clothing for being outside. Please send your child with a BACKPACK and all items on our Happy Camper Checklist.
We do not allow children to share food as it becomes a health issue.
We ask that children leave electronics, money, and toys at home. We do recommend, however, that your child bring in a camera if they wish. It is so much fun for them to document their nature experiences to share at home! Further, if you have special stories, nature artifacts, etc, that your child would like to share in opening circle, we encourage that. It is so much fun to hear about what they are noticing in their backyard!
Thank you again for choosing Wild Bear Nature Center for your summer camp experience. We are so excited to laugh, sing, dance and play in the woods together!
All our best,
Jill, Michelle, Mike, Mo and the Wild Bear summer camp staff
