2020 camps are on! Pre-register now.
Summer camp is one of our favorite times of year at Reflection Riding and we have been looking forward to camp for months! We wanted to let our campers and their families know that we are monitoring the best guidance from local, state and federal authorities and are excited to say that camp can happen this summer. We will ask for your flexibility as we will be evaluating each week's camp program based on local cases and hospitalizations.
Right now, the Hamilton County Department of Health has given the go-ahead to run camps in a socially-distanced fashion. This will also mean smaller groups. Instead of registering via CampDocs as usual, we're asking interested parents to sign up with our preregistration survey. We'll release camp slots as they become available and will confirm with parents before enrolling each child via CampDocs to ensure that everyone feels comfortable with our camp format before paying for a spot.
Due to the smaller group sizes, priority will go to members and we will fill camps based on the date of pre-registration. Get on the list now and stay tuned!
Reflection Riding Arboretum & Nature Center provides a wonderful opportunity for children ages 5-12 to immerse themselves in the natural world and experience nature in a hands-on manner.
This year, due to the pandemic, our camps will be formatted differently. We will be offering two age groups each week, 5-8 and 9-12. Our camps this year will be based on the Forest Kindergarten principle of self-exploration and camper-led expeditions, and the counselors will facilitate experiences based on the campers’ expressed interests. As usual, we will have activities and games, and all of the experiences will be done in a way that social distancing can be managed.
This year, each camper will receive a field notebook at the beginning of camp to draw, sketch, and record memories of what they find during the camp session. All of our campers will have the freedom to explore our 317 acre campus under the watchful eye of trained professionals. If your child enjoys the outdoors, this is the camp for them! Registration is filling up quickly, so please fill out the pre-registration form before space runs out.
