Summer Camps

IMPORTANT COVID-19 Information

Cedar Run is closely monitoring federal, state and local COVID-19 guidelines related to our summer camp programs.  With the health and safety of our staff and community our top priority, our nature center is currently closed and school programs, field trips and events have been postponed or re-imagined using virtual platforms.  At this time, summer camps are on still on the calendar, but that may change.  We will provide updates as this situation continues to emerge. Thank you very much for your support!

Please note that we have extended our Early Bird pricing until May 15th.

We have also set up two payment plans for online registration. A one-payment installment plan must be paid by June 15th. A three-payment installment plan will be paid on the 15th of June, July and August. Mail-in registration payments will be held until June 15th.

Summer Camp Scholarship Application

Please fill out the form below if you are seeking a scholarship for Summer Camp 2020 at Woodford Cedar Run Wildlife Refuge. Scholarships are limited; a scholarship application does not guarantee a spot in our camp program. Cedar Run awards scholarships based on the child’s financial need and the recommendation for the child by a non-related adult. Full scholarships covering all registration fees OR partial scholarships covering a portion of the fees may be awarded. Please indicate on the application if you are seeking a FULL or PARTIAL scholarship.

An application missing the parent submission or the non-related adult recommendation will be considered incomplete and cannot be considered for a scholarship. All scholarship applications MUST be accompanied by a completed registration form.

The information submitted will be reviewed thoroughly by our Camp Director and will be kept strictly confidential. Deadline for scholarship submission is June 1, 2020. Awardees will be notified of acceptance by June 10, 2020.
