Program Contract Summer 2020
This contract must be signed and returned with all registration forms at least two weeks prior to your child’s first day at Wild Bear Nature Center.
Being Prepared: We expect all children to be prepared for a full day outdoor exploration. This includes a healthy lunch, plenty of snacks, their individual camper supply pack, a clean mask, a large water bottle (filled with water), comfortable hiking shoes, rain jacket, and a change of clothes (for that unexpected mess) See Happy Camper Checklist. Please apply adequate sunscreen to your child prior to arrival at Wild Bear, and send extra with them for them to reapply throughout the day. Please thoroughly wash hands prior to attending Wild Bear camp.
Cancellation: Tuition will be refunded if cancellation is made at least 3 weeks prior to the program start date only if the space can be filled. Wild Bear will retain 10% of tuition as an administrative fee. Day of cancellations are not refunded. Wild Bear reserves the right to cancel programs for any reason. If Wild Bear cancels a program for any non COVID-19 reason, full refunds will be provided.
*** NO REFUNDS WILL BE ISSUED if Wild Bear must cancel or postpone full or partial programs due to any COVID-19 related issues.***
Attendance: We expect to be notified in the morning if your child will be absent from Wild Bear. Refunds are not given for absences. If there is a family emergency or sickness, please call to let us know. We may ask for outside verification of the emergency or sickness, and will review personal cancellations on a case-by-case basis-Please note there will be no refunds due to COVID related issues or cancellations*.
Illness: Please inform us if your child has been ill during the night or not feeling well in the morning. If a child has a communicable illness that is not physically evident, it is the responsibility of the parent to inform us of such illness. Parents will be notified if their child becomes ill and may be asked to pick up the child as soon as possible. If your child requires medication, we request s/he schedule this around time at Wild Bear. Wild Bear, however, can administer epipens or inhalers if needed. By state law, we cannot administer medicine of any kind without written permission from the child’s doctor. For a prescription, a labeled container with a doctor’s name, the child’s name, the medication type, dosage, frequency, method of application or ingestion, and an expiration date, is also required. (See specific guidelines and policies for COVID-19 attached)
Behavioral Expectations: Wild Bear utilizes a “teaching with dignity” model within all groups. This builds a positive and supportive atmosphere for all children. However, in the event that your child is disruptive (i.e physically or verbally aggressive or disrespectful, use of profanities, continuously disruptive behavior, or defiance of staff), Wild Bear staff will request a conference with parent/guardian to set clear expectations. If the behavior persists following the conference with the parent/guardian, the child will be removed from the program without refund. Wild Bear expects parents/guardians to provide information about any special behavioral plans your child may have in school or otherwise.
Release: Wild Bear will release students only to the parent or guardian specified on the Wild Bear Intake Form located in this packet. In the event you are unable to pick up your child, you may designate, through a phone call or a note, those individuals in the Authorization for Release section of the Parental Authorization form. Please inform the person picking up your child to have picture identification available for Wild Bear staff, and inform them of all drop-off and pick-up procedures beforehand.
COVID-19 Policies: During this time of the COVID-19 pandemic, we will be taking extreme measures to ensure the health, safety, and well-being of your children, our staff, and the community. We are working in accordance with permission from Boulder County Health Department and state officials to operate safely and legally. This is our highest priority. We will be closely monitoring for symptoms of COVID-19. If a child or staff member shows any symptoms, they will be presumed positive. Necessary actions will be taken by Wild Bear per our COVID-19 Contract.
