School Year Youth Programs and Camps at Terrapin Adventures
Masks are no longer required for staff or youth program participants, however, we encourage anyone who prefers to remain masked to wear a mask.
Outdoor play is important even when the weather is cold! However, to keep everyone warm and safe during the winter months (December-March) we will complete some activities indoors in our heated activity rooms. Campers should bring adequate layers for the outdoor portions of their program. We recommend a long-sleeved base layer, a sweater/sweatshirt mid layer, a heavy coat outer layer, a hat, gloves, and scarf.
A full refund may be issued upon request as long as you have contacted us 48 hours (2 days) or more from your program start date/time. If you contact us less than 48 hours from your program start date/time we are unable to refund you but can give you a full credit which can be used towards a future youth program adventure!
We operate rain, snow, or shine! Make sure to dress appropriately for the weather. If the weather poses a safety concern, we will contact all registrants as soon as possible to let them know that their program is canceled and refund them.
That’s okay! Lots of kids feel nervous about heights. Our staff are patient, kind, and specially trained to help them work through their fears. That being said, we operate on a challenge-by-choice philosophy, which means that although we will encourage each child to try each activity, we will never force them to do any activity that makes them uncomfortable.
This will vary depending on the program you are signed up for. For all of our programs, we ask that you send your child with a water bottle, face mask, and snack. For full day programs you will also need a non-perishable lunch. When you complete registration, you will be sent an email with a packing list specific to your chosen program.
For non-emergency medication, we ask that campers be able to self-administer their own medicine. This medication will be stored in a locked cabinet indoors.
Emergency medication such as epi-pens will be stored in the medical backpack. This backpack stays with the group at all times. Our staff is trained in the administration of epinephrine in the event of an emergency.
In order to bring medication to camp you must complete a medication form (this is separate to the health form). Please contact the Camp Director to gain access to this form (firstname.lastname@example.org).
