Our Carl Wells Summer Camp Scholarship Fund is offered to families who are unable to pay for Summer Camp. The fund will cover 100% of the cost for 2 children per week (Junior Naturalists qualify as well). Please fill out an application HERE to request a scholarship eligible for one week of camp. You may fill out a max of 2 applications for 2 children (one application per child).
Once completed and approved, your application will be included in a lottery. We have decided to change to a lottery system this year in order to reach more people and account for the influx in need. Applicants that applied for 2 children will be submitted in to the lottery ONCE as a family. If chosen, both children receive the scholarship. The lottery will take place in early March (already completed). You will then be notified of your status and given instructions on how to register if you are a lottery winner.
A second lottery may be offered later in the Spring for new applicants and those who were not chosen based on donations and funding. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions you may have.
Carl Wells played an important role in getting BLNC on its feet and keeping it there through his work as a longtime volunteer educator, Saturday birding guide, Board member and treasurer, and steward of its 123-acres. Bluff Lake’s mission is to make nature accessible to everyone, something Carl was very committed too, and this scholarship fund aims to make sure every kid has the chance to experience a week of summer camp at Bluff Lake.
PRE- AND POST-CAMP CARE
During the first 8 weeks of camp, we offer extended care hours both before camp (7:30 – 9 a.m.) and after camp (3 – 5 p.m.). Visit the camp schedule to see the available weeks.
Pre- and post-camp care will take place at Isabella Bird Community School (2701 Lima St., Denver CO 80238), just a few blocks from Bluff Lake. Campers and staff will walk together over to Bluff Lake in the morning and back in the afternoon. Campers can be dropped off and picked up at Isabella Bird any time during the pre- and post-camp periods.
Extended care is purchased in weekly bundles ($75 for pre-camp care, $100 for post-camp care, or $150 for both). Please note that a $20 late fee will be charged for pickup after 5:15 p.m. There must be a minimum of 4 campers registered for any given week of pre- or post-camp care, or it will be cancelled.
CANCELLATIONS AND REFUNDS
Because our programs require intensive staff preparation and often fill early, we have developed the following cancellation and refund policy:
You MUST have all your forms in before your child starts camp, or your child will NOT be allowed to attend. This includes all waivers, immunization records, medication authorization forms, necessary medical forms for asthma, allergies, etc., and sunscreen authorizations. No refunds will be given for failure to provide the required forms. This paperwork is necessary in order to comply with our licensing. We are not willing to jeopardize our license and the programming we bring to hundreds of children. Therefore, no excuses regarding missing forms will be accepted.
