Our Break Camps give children the opportunity to experience the seasons in a new way, while discovering all that Saint Edward State Park has to offer. Each day of camp is full of forest play, hiking, crafting and exploration. A daily fire, tea and field games helps build community and keep everyone warm, while nature immersion supports a new appreciation for and understanding of the winter landscape. This camp is 100% outdoors.

FAQ:

What is your cancellation policy for this camp?

  • If you choose to cancel a course for any reason, then there are no refunds.

  • If any duration of a program is canceled due to inclement weather, unsafe conditions, or circumstances out of our control, we are unable to offer refunds. 

 

Who are the teachers?

 

Will my 6 year old be in a class of primarily 10-11 year olds?  

  • With our short term break camps, we do not have control over the ages of the students. If we discover your 6 year old is signed up for a break camp consisting of primarily older children, we will let you know and offer you the opportunity to drop the class at no cost if you feel it  is not a good fit.

 

What are you doing to protect staff and children from COVID19?

  • Please visit our COVID19 page for details.

 

Will my child be required to wear a mask? 

Currently, children 5 and above are required to wear masks when they are closer than 6’ to someone else.  Masks breaks will be given regularly throughout the day and if properly distanced, a child can take a mask break at anytime. Please see the Washington State Department of Health for Childcare, Youth Development and Day Camps for detailed information.
