KEENs Pond to Pines

Outdoor Nature Day Camps 2020!

KEEN is excited to announce our 2020 Summer Camps.

Each camp and activity are carefully constructed to provide the ultimate nature-based learning environment while providing a FUN hands-on experience. During our summer camp children learn through inquisitive and creative activities utilizing science, math, critical-thinking skills and a great deal of imagination!


Camp is for Pre-K-Middle School and is held at Helen McCabe State Park.

Camps are organized by age/grade level! See below for a description of each camp.

Camp runs June 29 through July 31. Each week is a new theme.
Monday-Friday from 9-3 (pre-K to K camp is shorter day)


Each week of camp is $250.

Pre-K to K camp will have a fee tbd.

Registration is open. Please click on the button above and register online.

Cancellation Policy:

Because our camp staffing requires us to be prepared for a certain number of campers per week, cancellations could be problematic to the overall operation of camp.

 

However, in consideration for changing plans, you can cancel your camp registration up to one week (7 days) before your camp starts.

 

KEEN will retain $50 of the tuition fee in that case.

 

No refund will be issued if cancellation occurs less than 7 days before your camp starts.

In the case of bad air quality due to smoke, KEEN will relocate camp to an indoor location. No refunds will be given in that case.

 

We hope you understand that as a non-profit, we rely on camp tuition to fund our staff for summer camp. The loss of tuition at the last moment impedes our ability to offer other campers a safe and enjoyable experience.

 

Thank you!
