SUMMER CAMP FAQ
We know that parents need answers to lots of questions before they decide to send their kids to a Summer Camp. We have compiled answers to a list of the most popular questions parents ask and encourage you to email Carlos Lerma, Nature Kids Lafayette Community Programs Coordinator, firstname.lastname@example.org, or call at 720.601.4964
This is a free program for families in Lafayette who qualify for the Free and Reduced Lunch program through their school or any other form of government assistance. Scholarships are available to folks who don’t qualify for free programming.
Day camps for kids, overnight camps for kids, weekend-long family camps, one-day family events, and career and volunteer opportunities for middle and high school kids. If you are a qualifying Lafayette family, there is NO cost for any of the programs!
All programs are designed to be inclusive of different languages! We want all kids and families to experience nature, so our programs are organized to assist families where English is a second language.
There are many different summer camp locations and drop-offs specific to each camp. Please refer to your camp description and camp registration materials for specifics (all drop-offs are in Lafayette or Boulder).
Depending on your child’s age and camp selection, camps take place at Boulder County parks and open spaces, or mountain parks and campground sites.
While this is specific to each camp, a Boulder Valley School District bus and driver will be used to transport campers in most camp experiences.
Instructors have multiple years of outdoor environmental education experience with children. All summer camp instructors must pass State of CO background checks and be trained in First Aid and CPR. Some assistant instructors will be high school students from your neighborhood.
This varies by camp, so please check your registration materials for a complete camper checklist. Campers should always wear appropriate clothing to explore outside, comfortable walking shoes (no flip flops), and a sweatshirt/light jacket.
It is best to be present for the whole camp – it may be hard to join once campers have embarked on an adventure. If you have an emergency, please contact your camp provider and/or Carlos.
All camps indicate a grade number that refers to incoming grade year – the grade that your child will be starting in August 2019.
There is no limit.
