NDC After-Care Information

Detailed Information

Camp Hours are 9am to 3:30pm. The Nature Day Camp staff is on-site and ready for children to start arriving at 8:45am. Camp begins promptly at 9:00am. To see the weekly schedule and get the "feel" for each day of camp, please click HERE.

After-care is provided from 3:30-5:30pm for an additional fee at all locations. 
Registration can be done online using Activity #1083089. Register for the camp(s) first; then choose all the days After Care needed at once using flexible registration. 
(If you are calling to register through the Customer Service Center (503-823-2525), PLEASE tell them to look for "Nature Day Camp After Care using FLEXIBLE REGISTRATION.") CLICK HERE TO REGISTER FOR EE AFTER-CARE ONLINE!

Every camper using the after-care program (even if it's later in the week) must arrive on Monday with a completed After-Care Form! Find it HERE.

We recognize that many families have working parents or other activities that prevent campers from being picked up at 3:30pm, and we're here to help! After Care options are for Nature Day Campers and True Nature Campers (full-day programs only - ages 4½-12). Sorry - there are no after-care option for Rockin Robins Nature Camps. Trained leadership staff are CPR/First Aid certified and will hang out with children from 3:30-5:30pm. (Campers in After-care may be picked up before 5:30pm but the fee is the same regardless of pick-up time. Please indicate pick-up time for each day on the After-care Form.)

After-care includes a snack at 3:45pm. If your child has food allergies or dietary restrictions, please make notes on the after-care form!
In fairness to our staff, please be on time to pick up campers. If you arrive later than 5:30, you will be charged $1/minute until you arrive. Our staff will report your actual pick-up time to the EE Coordinator, and we will contact you via phone for credit card payment.
