Welcome to Camp!

Welcome to Camp!

KNC Camp has been an essential part of children's summers since KNC's incorporation for nearly 60 years. For the first time in KNC's history our regular summer camp season had to be cancelled due to the COVID-19 epidemic. We know how much of KNC families value the quality time, learning experiences, and outdoor fun that summer camp has to offer. Our staff has worked diligently to create a safe alternative, based on CDC and ACA guidance. Children need fun, in-person, educational experiences now more than ever! Our goal is to safely provide those experiences in a natural setting. Space is limited, so sign up today!  See the mini-camp policy here.

Primary Camp: Grades 1-5  |  Weekly Sessions held Monday-Thursday, 8:30 am - Noon July 6 - August 27

Adventure Camp: Grades 6-8  |  Weekly Sessions held Fridays, 7-10 pm July 10 - August 28

Camp Scholarship Program

We believe that every kid should have the chance to come to camp. Learn more about our Camp Scholarship Program to help make camp more affordable for your family. We welcome kids of all abilities and will work closely with you to make sure your child has a great experience.

Camp processes related to COVID-19
We hope your child will join us to enjoy the woods and trails in small groups and to make connections in new ways this summer. Camp will implement several safety precautions this season, including: health screenings, increased hand washing, face cover/mask wearing (especially when a six foot distance cannot be maintained), physical distancing within groups, cohort use (small groups, no mixing of groups), limited equipment sharing, increased cleaning and disinfecting, and all camps will be held outdoors. It is important to note that, due to the nature of COVID-19, we cannot eliminate all risk of exposure even with these practices in place. We know that campers may need extra reminders and grace during this time. For more details, please see the Parent Handbook.
