Each of these weeks of camp is a stand-alone experience that will include exploration and experiences all over MFFC: from ponds and streams, to pastures and berry patches, to trails and woods. We’ll spend time on creative crafting projects, daily hikes and excursions, hands-on experiences, cooperative games and play, and activities focused on observing and investigating Merck’s many habitats and inhabitants. Campers will get their hands dirty constructing fairy houses, get up close and personal with trees, pick blueberries, dip nets in Page Pond, and spend time at the farm getting to know the animals that live there.
Registration is not considered complete until all forms have been submitted. Failure to submit completed registration forms will result in a loss of space in the camp and any tuition paid. Cancellation requests received at least 28 days before the first day of camp will receive a refund, less the $50 processing fee. Cancellation requests received within 28 days of the first day of camp will not be refunded, unless we are able to fill your reservation with a child from the waiting list. In such a case the $50 administrative fee will be levied. We will not refund registration fees if a child misses one or more days of camp due to illness, unexpected family obligations, dismissal, or any other foreseen event. Other children may not be substituted into your child’s vacant spot. We reserve the right to cancel a camp program due to low enrollment; in this situation we will work to place campers into another camp or we will issue a full refund. We reserve the right to cancel a camp program due to unforeseen circumstances, in which case full refunds will be issued.
