2020 Scout Island Nature Fun and Art In Nature Programs

We are adapting to keep children and staff safe

And still having fun in nature

  • Distancing as much as possible
  • Lots of hand washing
  • Mostly outdoor activities
  • Drop off and pick up altered to promote parent distancing
  • Sanitizing and cleaning daily
  • Smaller groups (10 children per day who will be in 2 groups of 5)

 

  1. There will be cohorts of 15 children that will not mix with other cohorts and will expose staff to fewer children. This will mean less chance of spread and easier tracking if someone becomes ill.
  2. Parents required to do a daily health check of their child and cancel if there are any signs of illness-then notify us asap

This is how the schedule will work

Children who have completed kindergarten-8 years old can be in the Monday and  Friday Nature Fun cohort or the Tuesday Nature Fun Cohort.  This is offered in the mornings only 9:30-12.  Cost is $15.  We will register 15 children in each cohort who can attend on any of the days designated for their cohort by signing up for the day at least a day in advance:

Monday-Friday Cohort

July 13, 17, 20, 24, 27 ,31, Aug. 7,10, 14, or 17  We are asking for a commitment to at least 6 of those days.

Tuesday cohort

July 7, 21, Aug. 4, and 18   We are asking for a commitment to at least two of the days.

Children 8-13 can take part in the Art in Nature full day program 8:30-4:30 on the following Wednesdays: July 15, 22, 29, Aug. 5, 12, or 19   Cost is $25.   We are asking for a commitment to at least 3 of the 6 sessions.
