When You Arrive


Please arrive at Nature Camp between 2:30 PM and 4:00 PM on the day (Sunday) that your session begins. We will not check in any campers until 2:30 PM.

Upon arriving at Nature Camp on check-in day, please come to the Office and pick up a number. The office is the fourth building on the right as you come into Nature Camp; numbers are available by the bench along the road. We will check in campers in the order of arrival. Each camper is assigned a counselor, who will assist in selecting a bunk, moving items into the bunkhouse, and getting settled and will provide a tour of the facilities. Please do not leave your campers until they have checked in at the Office, in the event that we need to obtain additional information from you.

Nature Camp maintains a small store (canteen) where campers may purchase some personal items, Nature Camp T-shirts and other clothing, stationery and notebook supplies, ice cream, snacks and drinks.  Money (cash or check) brought to camp will be deposited with the Canteen Operator, and items purchased are charged against each camper’s account.  At the end of the session, any remaining funds will be returned; overdrafts are not permitted.


Each session ends on Saturday, 13 days after it begins. Campers should be picked up between 9:30 AM and 11:00 AM. The final event of each session is a brief chapel service beginning at approximately 9:00 AM. We have no provisions for supervising campers beyond 11:00 AM that morning.

Please also come to the Office to check your campers out on the last day of the session. We will make sure that each camper has gathered all of his or her belongings, recovered any medication from the infirmary, settled up his or her account in the canteen, and obtained his or her notebook.

Please let us know in advance if a camper has to leave early or will be departing with someone other than a parent or guardian.

If you bring a dog or other pet on check-in/departure days, please keep it on a leash at all times.
