Summer Camp at Schlitz Audubon
Whether you are a returning family, who views camps at Schlitz Audubon as an annual tradition, or a new family who is interested in exploring what we offer, we want our camps to be a highlight of your child’s summer. This year, we’re continuing to offer camps on popular themes including nature art, beachcombing, fairy houses, and animal care, while also adding camps focused on outdoor games, working with wildlife, and nocturnal animals.
2021 Safety Guidelines
Though we know that a lot may change before June, the health and safety of our campers and their families will remain our top priority. Following our successful 2020 camp season, we’ll rely on masks, outdoor classrooms, frequent hand washing/sanitizing, and social distancing to make our 2021 camp season both safe and fun! Updated safety guidelines will be sent to participating families prior to the start of the 2021 camp season, but you can read our 2020 camp safety guidelines in more detail here.
In our effort to offer a stress-free and equitable process that will take into consideration the unique circumstances of each camp family, our 2021 registration will begin with a members-only lottery.
The camp calendar is now online! To register, please fill out a Camper Profile for each child, as well as one Camp Registration form for their family. This form will provide our staff with camp selections for each child. For families with multiple children, there is an option to specify that all children must be enrolled in camps during the same week and time slot.
All registration forms submitted by members prior to 11:59pm on Sunday, January 31, will be entered into the lottery. The lottery will first consider all lottery participants’ first preference, then second preference, then third preference, etc. Families entered into the lottery will receive camp confirmations and/or waitlist notifications by the end of day on Friday, February 5. Invoices will be sent the week of February 8 and can be paid online.
After 12:00am on February 1, after we have received all member’s forms to be entered into the lottery, all other registration forms will be processed on a first-come, first-served basis in the order they are received. These forms will be processed the week of February 8 and beyond.
You can also download a pdf list of our 2021 camp schedule to complement our online camp calendar.
Submit this secure, online form for each child, prior to submitting your family’s Camp Registration form. This profile includes a health history and emergency care plan, as well as childcare enrollment information. An automated email reply will be sent after each profile has been received.
Camper Profiles are not required to be submitted for children enrolling in Hand-in-Hand week-long camps or for children who have a Student Profile on file from the 2020-2021 school year, required for Field Days, Homeschool, and Nature Mornings program participation.
This year, due to licensing, immunization forms are required for only preschool (K4 & K5) campers. These forms are not required for initial registration, and can be mailed, dropped off, or faxed directly to the Center (414-352-6091) from the child’s doctor’s office and must be submitted prior to their first day of camp. Parents may also fill out this form, especially if they have chosen to opt-out of certain immunizations.
Important Camp Notes
An automated email reply will be sent after submitting each Camper Profile, as well as after submitting the Camp Registration form.
Any members taking part in the lottery will receive camp confirmations or wait list notifications by the end of the day on Friday, February 5. Emailed invoices will be sent the week of February 8.
For Camp Registration forms that are submitted after the lottery is completed, camp confirmations or wait list notifications, as well as emailed invoices, will be sent the week of February 8 and beyond.
We allow a maximum of six camps for the entire summer, per camper.
Cancellation & Change Policy
To cancel or change camps, please email our registrar at [email protected].
A refund of registration fees will be given for any camps canceled 14-days or more prior to the first date of camp. There will be no refunds for camps canceled with less than 14-days notice. The cancellation policy is not dependent on the status of camp waitlists.
If we receive instruction from the CDC, North Shore Health Department, or other camp-related officials that camp programming should be discontinued, we will offer camp families a pro-rated refund.
At this time, lunch supervision will not be available for the Summer Camp 2021 season. If a camper is enrolled in both a morning and afternoon camp session within the same week, they must be picked up in between camp sessions.
If your camper may require medication while at camp, please complete a Medication Information and Authorization Form prior to your child’s first day of camp.
