Fernbrook Farms Environmental Education Center’s (FFEEC) Summer Camps is a co-educational program for children ages 3 to 14.
Reservations & Payments – Registration payments can be made online, by mail or in person. A non-refundable $60 administrative fee is the minimum due at the time of registration to reserve your spot. Administrative fees will be refunded only if FFEEC is unable to accept a child. Acceptance is on a first come, first served basis based on payment in full. Registrants will receive program confirmation – please keep this for your records. If a week is full, you will be notified, your name added to a waiting list and a full refund sent. All forms must be submitted and completed before a camper is considered fully registered. The application is NOT valid unless the Parent/Guardian Agreement has an original signature or has an online agreement.
Registrant Withdrawals & Refunds – Full refunds are only given if we cannot accept the registrant. For withdrawals more than 7 days before your first day of camp, refunds (less the administrative fee) will be given. For withdrawals less than 7 days before your first day of camp, refunds will only be given if a substitute can be made from a wait list or by the registrant. The administrative fee is non-refundable unless we are unable to accept the registrant. No refund will be given if a camper misses any part of the week due to illness, vacations or dismissal.
Camp Times & Weather – Please arrive on time (8:30am) and pick-up on time (4:00pm). Programs and trips are held rain or shine – please dress accordingly. In case of rain, activities may be modified and/or moved indoors. In case of lightning and/or thunder, activities are immediately moved indoors.
Snack & Lunches – Each day includes a healthy morning snack provided by FFEEC. Participants must bring a lunch as no meal is provided. If your child has dietary restrictions or allergies, please note this information on the registration form.
Drinking Water – FFEEC recommends bringing a reusable water bottle to camp each day. Water stations are available for campers to refill whenever they want.
Clothing – Play clothes are best. Programs are held rain or shine, inside and outside. Please dress accordingly and wear closed-toe, closed-heel shoes that can get wet and/or muddy. A more detailed clothing list will be mailed with your welcome letter at the beginning of the summer.
Sun & Ticks – Please apply sunscreen and/or insect repellent each day, prior to the program. To aid in keeping ticks away, it is suggested that insect spray be applied to pants and shoes.
Medical & Emergency Information – So that we may obtain the best care for your child in case of an emergency, please complete all the medical information on the program registration form and call the Fernbrook office if contact phone numbers change. Label all prescription medications (including dosage) and hand it to the Camp Director when dropping off your child. Since we are not permitted to dispense medication, your child must be able to self-medicate.
Optional Extended Day Service – Children may be dropped off as early as 7:30 AM and picked up no later than 5:30 PM for an additional extended care fee. Please be sure to indicate on the registration form if your child will need extended care.
Optional Transportation/Busing – Transportation to and from FFEEC is available for an additional fee. FFEEC has contracted a busing company to drive and will be accompanied by a representative of FFEEC. Please be sure to indicate on the registration form if your child will need transportation.
