Cedar Hill Farm Summer Camp 2021

We are excited about this new tradition at Cedar Hill Farm. Our staff will consist of teachers and seasoned Cedar Hill Farm staff members with years of experience in agricultural education and entertainment. Camp is for kids aged 5 to 10 years old.  They can be 4 if they are starting 5K this coming August. Jr. Counselors will be for 10-year-olds that are going into the 4th grade.  They need to be potty trained and not have any severe medical conditions.

We will be dividing the children up based on age into 4 groups: 4yrs – going into 5K Yellow, going into 1st grade Orange, going into 2nd grade Green, going into 3rd grade Blue, 10 years old, and going into 4th grade can be a Jr. Counselor Red.  The camper-to-staff ratio will be around a 10:1 average, with a higher average for the younger campers than with the older campers.  We will have experienced teachers and teaching assistants supervising the campers.  They will all be together for a lot of the day so please try and help us keep them in their appropriate age group because certain activities are geared for their ages.

THINGS TO KNOW

You must let us know at least the day before if you need to arrange a one-time early drop-off or late pick-up.  We prefer a one-day notice if you need to add food for a single day but we should be able to accommodate the occasional last-minute meal.

Each camper should wear closed-toed shoes, no flip-flops or sandals except for on Friday.  If it rains a lot the day before or looks like rain that day boots and a raincoat would be appropriate.  We will have alternative plans under our barns in case of foul weather but appropriate clothing for outdoor activities should be considered for each day.  We will have activities each day after lunch for a cool-off and rest period out of the sun.  A hat and sunscreen might be good for sunny days.  Please send a backpack with a change of clothes with your child each day just in case of an accident of any kind and a refillable container with ice water that they can carry around the farm with them.  Please put their name on all of their items.

Each camper will need to be signed in and out each day, please do not drop them off and leave without signing them in.  If a different person is picking your child up then dropped them off, please let our staff know that when you are dropping them off that morning.

Please fill out one form for each camper you would like to register. Also if you are signing up for multiple weeks please be sure to fill out a separate registration form for each week. Once we verify that we have enough room that week we will email you an invoice that you can pay online with a credit card to secure your spot.  Your spot will not be reserved until we have received payment.  Payments are nonrefundable and due upon the time of booking.
