Summer Camp Registration is Open

If you are a teacher or teaching intern and would be interested in signing on to help, please send an email to ami.voeltz@sminc-lake-elmo.org. Job descriptions are posted under the “HELP WANTED” tab above.

PLEASE REGISTER BELOW FOR THE SESSIONS AS LISTED. EACH SESSION IS LIMITED TO 10 PARTICIPANTS. YOU WILL BE NOTIFIED ASAP IF THE SESSION YOU SELECT IS FULL.

Registration is first come, first served. Parent or guardian will acknowledge and sign these terms on the first drop-off day:

By submitting this registration I agree that:   (A) The camper is in the correct age group. (B) In the event of an emergency I give permission for Sally Manzara Interpretive Nature Center (SMINC) personnel to administer first aid and/or obtain emergency medical treatment for my child. I understand that if necessary, my child will be transported by ambulance to the nearest hospital emergency room. I agree that any cost incurred for transportation and/or treatment will be my responsibility. (C) I will be charged $15 for every 15 minutes if I am late to pick up my child. (D)  My child will not be permitted to leave with anyone except me, or the person named on the camp check-in sheet. (E) SMINC has the right to dismiss a camper without refund for violating SMINC’s no tolerance policy, copied at the bottom of this page.  (F)  If my child requires supervision beyond SMINC’s child-to-staff ratio, I agree to provide a personal aide at my own expense. (G) I assume all risks and hazards incidental to the conduct of camp activities and release SMINC from any liability. (H) Participants will bring their own backpack with a mask, snack, water bottle, hat, sunscreen, bug spray and change of clothes if needed. (I) Registration is “first come – first served” and final, payment will be returned ASAP if that camp has filled up.  If you need to withdraw your child four or more weeks before the camp start date, half the camp fee will be refunded. You must call the camp director at 651-408-2838 within the stated timeframe to receive the refund. Withdrawals for medical reasons (with a signed doctor’s authorization) will be charged a $50 processing fee. Full refunds will be given if SMINC must cancel a camp for any reason.
