June 8, 2020 Update: Thank you so much for your continued patience and understanding as Baltimore Woods tries to navigate the very different world of operating a summer camp program this year. After weeks of research and discussion and very careful thought, we have decided to move ahead with our plans to open our Summer Nature Day Camp as scheduled. We believe that your children need camp, and need our kind of nature-play based camp in particular right now.

That said, we are closely monitoring the evolving requirements at the state and local level related to summer camp operations and need to be transparent that there is a chance that a decision is made at one of these levels that alters our plans or means we cannot offer camp. We are, however, diligently updating our camp safety protocols based on the most recent guidelines offered by the CDC and the American Camp Association and are confident that we can meet existing guidance.

Part of these updated safety protocols include the need for us to closely evaluate and reduce our weekly camp capacities to maintain camper and staff safety. For this reason, registration – including waitlist registration – is currently closed while we communicate with currently registered families. We will only re-open registration for any weeks that we have space following this communication, which we will announce in an email to our camp families, members, and on our webpage. Waitlist registrations will also resume at that time.  If you are unsure if you are on our email listserve, please email sue@baltimorewoods.org with your email and we will be sure that you are sent the announcement if registration resumes.

Here’s how it works:

  1. To register your child for camp, click the “Register Now!” button above.
  2. You will be redirected to our secure registration portal operated by Active Network.
  3. Choose your camp sessions and fill out the forms. Camp sessions with availability will show up in the options to the left of your screen. You can register all your children at once – simply put the appropriate number of camps in your shopping cart.
  4. You will be given the choice to purchase “Registration Protection” and “Active Refund” protection from Active Network. This is a third-party registration insurance and not directly associated with Baltimore Woods Nature Center. See our FAQ section for information regarding our refund policies.
  5. Make your payment via credit card or EFT, review everything. EFT is also known as an “e-check”. Choosing this option helps us keep costs low as there are larger fees for credit card transactions.
  6. Create an account, if you don’t already have one. This will speed the process up in the future and allow you to make changes to your child’s information.
  7. You will receive instant email confirmation from Sue, our office manager. Be sure to save this email as it contains important information about the camp program, including a packing list.
  8. Upload your camper’s vaccination records into your camp account at least two weeks prior to your first session.

That’s it! We can’t wait to see you at camp!
