Mud Monsters Spring Camp

Mon., Apr. 14; 9 a.m.-3 p.m
Tue., Apr. 15; 9 a.m.-3 p.m.

Feel like you’ve been stuck inside all winter?  This camp will be full of adventures -- we will wade into the swamp, use nets to look for amphibians, and, of course, play in the mud.

Bring a snack, lunch, and dress for the weather each day!

Location: Flag Ponds Nature Park

Fee: $10 for members; $25 for nonmembers.

 

 

Dear Parents and Campers:

Welcome to the Mud Monsters spring camp-April 14 and 15!  I am looking forward to a fun-filled and adventurous spring experience!  Please go over the camp checklist (below) with your camper so that s/he will be fully prepared for camp.  We will be holding camp rain or shine, hot or cold – please be sure that your camper is dressed appropriately for the weather. 

One of the best parts of spring is the MUD!  We *will* be getting wet and muddy, so please also be sure to send your camper to camp in clothes and shoes that can get dirty, and include a change of clothes and shoes for the way home.

Below is a drop off/pick up schedule for the week:                          

Day                             Drop off           Pick up                Location

Monday (4/14)                        9am                 3pm              Flag Ponds Park (Education Building)**

Tuesday (4/15)            9am                 3pm             

Flag Ponds Park (Education Building)**

If the camper has any health concerns (severe allergies, diabetes, asthma, etc.), staff must be informed before the camper’s arrival on Monday.  Because the camp staff is unable to administer medication, each camper must be responsible for any medications that s/he takes.

Please be aware that we will be outside for the majority of this camp.  Be sure that your camper does a “tick check” when they get home each day.  Using insect repellent that contains the chemical “DEET” will help repel ticks, as well as mosquitoes. 

Questions or concerns? Please contact me at Battle Creek Nature Center at 410-535-5327 or by email @ “galete@co.cal.md.us.”  I look forward to our spring adventures!

Sincerely,

Tania Gale

**In general – dress in layers and try to avoid cotton clothing as much as possible.  Cotton fabric will get wet and stay wet – not doing its job of keeping our campers warm.

 

**we will be doing some off trail hiking -  long pants will protect campers legs from briars
