Extended Care Information

Morning Care: 8am - 9am

Staff will be available at 8am for early drop-off at all camp locations. There is no charge for morning care.

Afternoon Care is offered at some Nature Day Camp sites from 3pm - 6pm

We recognize that many families have working parents or other activities that prevent campers from being picked up at 3pm, and we're here to help! After Care options are for Nature Day Campers (full-day programs only) age 5-13, and are available for at least one site each week of the summer. Trained leadership staff are CPR/First Aid certified and will hang out with children from 3-6pm. (Campers in After Care may be picked up before 6pm but the fee is the same regardless of pick-up time. Please indicate pick-up time on the After Care Form.)

In fairness to our staff, please be on time to pick up campers. After Care includes a snack at 3:30pm.

After Care will be available at the following camp locations:

  • Hoyt Arboretum
  • Mt.Tabor Park
  • Sellwood Park/Oaks Bottom Wildlife Refuge

Fees are as follows:

  • 5 days of care $60
  • 4 days of care $52
  • 3 days of care $42
  • 2 days of care $30
  • 1 day of care $16
