Are you a nut free camp?

Although we can not guarantee a nut free environment, parents are asked to please refrain from giving students any food and beverage products that may contain NUTS. The safety of all our children is our top priority. If your child has an allergy, we require they be able to administer their own EpiPen in case of an emergency. They must have their EpiPen with them each day.
.
Do I need to call someone if my child is going to be absent?

Tardiness and absenteeism crucially effects the quality of our show. Putting a show together in such a short period time truly requires team work and when one of our team members is missing it effects everyone.
If you will be arriving late or not coming a specific day we kindly ask you to let us know in advance. It’s best to email our office at info[AT]nhaopa.com if your child will need to miss a day.

Do you provide lunch?

Food will NOT be provided. All students are asked to bring a bagged lunch/snacks with beverages water and sports drinks are best . Soda and Juice are not allowed

Children will have a minimum of a 30 minute lunch break each day and (2) 15 minute snack breaks.

Are any packed lunch items prohibited?

For the safety of all our students we ask parents to please refrain from packing any products that may include nuts.
A good rule of thumb to follow is "if you are unsure, don't pack it ".

How does Summer Theatre Camp handle casting?

At NHAOPA we feel there are "no small parts only small actors". Each and every person is important to the success of our show! Each child will have the opportunity to audition for our casting directors.Some young actors are anxious to play the lead role, and some are happy to have a smaller part. And we know, not everyone will get the part they desire. We ask for your support and enthusiasm following casting.

Even those students who never thought they could sing learn that with Billy if you can speak you CAN sing !

Billy is known for his unique teaching approach and the ability to feel exactly what is going on in students voice that is causing the problem and giving the correct exercise to fix it. Students learn to have fun while training .

The last two years the overnights have included campers sleeping in tents, our tipi, or just in a sleeping bag under the stars!

Overnights:

7-9 year old campers have guest visitors from A Place Called Hope, a local raptor rescue. APCH brings their resident owls to meet campers and share with them why they shouldn't be afraid of the woods at night. The noises are usually just a toad or a mouse rustling in the leaves, or the owls calling!

10-12 year old campers enjoy a sunset hike and canoe ride along our lake before heading out on their evening night hike, a sensory experience!

Bushy Mountain campers (ages 13-15) venture farther out onto our property, setting up camp, telling stories around the fire before heading out on a night hike.

SCOUT campers (ages 13-16) will spend the day leading up to the overnight building their debris hut shelters. Each shelter must be sturdy and waterproof (and will be put to the test!). In the evening the campers will use the skills taught during the session to make fire by friction, forage for a meal, make their spoons and bowls, etc.

Adanced SCOUT (age 16+) is for campers who have completed a minimum of 3 years in our SCOUT program, have demonstrated a near mastery level of basic survival skills. A group of campers and two staff members will spend a week in the woods using the skills they learned in the previous years to survive with the bare minimum of supplies. Campers must complete a skills test and must be at least 16 years old before they can be accepted into Advanced SCOUT.

Fringe SCOUT is a program for campers who have successfully completed Advanced SCOUT and who are interested in focusing and becoming a master of a specific skill set.

CAMPER AGES: 0-5, 5-8, 9-15

TYPE OF CAMP: Day Camp. Daily 9am-3pm

CAMPER GENDER(S): Coed Campers.

BRIEF CAMP DESCRIPTION: Two Coyotes Wilderness School offers up to 9 weeklong day camp sessions at our Newtown & Granby locations for kids age 5-15. Each session is led by skilled nature mentors who introduce your child to primitive and naturalist skills by tailoring each camp day to match their natural curiosity. Campers learn how to craft handmade tools and art projects from natural materials, track animals, identify bird language, make friction fires, build forts and shelters, and forage for safe wild edibles. Our advanced sessions feature an overnight campout for kids age 9-15. Along the way, all campers learn nature-inspired games, songs, and have free time to explore streams, mountainsides, and other unexpected nature mysteries. We also offer Coyote Pup half-day "mini-camps" for little ones 5 and under, with an adult.

CAMP INSTRUCTIONAL ACTIVITIES OFFERED:
Wilderness/Nature, and more.

CAMP LOCATION: We have two locations. In Newtown, CT we run our camp out of Sticks & Stones Farm, a 60-acre privately-owned space that is open to the community. In Granby, CT we run our camp out of Holcomb Farm, 367-acre working farm and community gathering place operated collaboratively between the Town of Granby and a Board of local citizens.

CAMP FACILITIES: Both of our camp locations feature extensive hiking trails, primitive campsites for overnights, creeks for wading and catching critters, and grassy fields for playing games.

CAMP PROGRAM INFO: Two Coyotes Wilderness School is a nonprofit nature mentoring organization that connects people to nature, community, and self. We design interdisciplinary programs that provide a dynamic environment for students to face challenges, engage their natural curiosity, and cultivate an intrinsic love for learning that they bring back into the classroom and the rest of their lives.

We believe that nature connection is our birthright, and that catching frogs, muddy knees, and exploring wild places are essential to growing up strong and healthy. We believe that long-term nature mentoring can help children to thrive and navigate the many stages of their lives. Our mentors help children understand who they are, what their gifts are, and how to bring them to the world. We believe that this work is essential to creating a healthier, more connected future.

Since 2000, we have honed our innovative and transformative programs as the school has grown to employ 34 part-time instructors who provide long-term mentorship to more than 500 students (birth to 17) annually through school day, weekend, child & caregiver, rites of passage, and summer camp programs. We are committed to ensuring that Two Coyotes programming is accessible, welcoming, and inclusive of all children and families in Connecticut.

Our staff are a fun-loving bunch of adults (and a few exceptional teens) who are passionate about helping kids connect to nature. We call our teaching staff “mentors” because they help people discover their gift and power by connecting them to nature and their heart.

Our teaching style follows the "coyote mentoring" method of teaching, where lessons are indirect, yet transformational. Within this framework, our skilled nature mentors tailor each day's activities to the needs and interests of the youth, including comfort and familiarity with spending a day in a natural environment. This cultivates young people's innate curiosity and a passion for learning that will serve them when they are back in the classroom and in their future careers.

Regardless of how youth encounter our programs, all our immersive wilderness-based learning experiences challenge them to build a deeper connection to nature, community, and their own personal empowerment. We believe this results in stronger intergenerational connections, deeper community ties, greater self-awareness, and profound respect for the natural world.

CAMP LEADERSHIP CIT/LIT PROGRAMS: We offer a Mentor-in-Training program for teens who have grown up in our programs and/or are interested in pursuing a career in wilderness mentoring. The MIT program is offered during the summer in both Newtown and Granby. It includes 2 weeks of leadership training & development, plus at least 1 service week with one of our youth camps.

CAMP SCHOLARSHIPS OR FINANCIAL ASSISTANCE: At Two Coyotes Wilderness School, we believe that nature connection is a right, not a privilege. Scholarships are available when you register for any of our programs, thanks to the generous support of our community. More information about how to apply for scholarships is available here: Our Camp Website Link: twocoyotes.org

YEAR-ROUND PROGRAMS: During the school year, we offer weekly school day programs in Newtown, Granby, and Killingworth to children who are homeschooled and children who leave their traditional school one day/week to learn outdoors with us. We also offer monthly weekend programs based on Wildwood, our popular adventure-fantasy summer camp. Little ones (0-5) can enroll in our weekly Coyote Pups Caregiver & Child program with an adult. We offer some adult programming and also host family-friendly community events throughout the year.

OTHER CAMP INFO: We are a licensed camp registered with the Connecticut Department of Health. Each year they conduct an unannounced inspection for our camps to ensure we meet the health and safety regulations. We are in compliance with all stated rules and regulations.

Each of our camp locations is managed by an experienced camp director who works for Two Coyotes year-round in the field and has a First Aid Director onsite who is trained in adult and pediatric CPR and First Aid.

Our ratio of campers to staff is at least 6:1, with a maximum of 12 students in each camp group. This ensures groups small enough to provide a fun and intensive experience while large enough to have a diversity of kids and ample opportunity to make new friends.

Each group of campers is led by two instructors, one of which must be a Lead Instructor. Lead Instructors have hundreds of hours of field experience working in the woods with kids. These instructors are always dedicated adults who are passionate about connecting kids to nature. They are typically in their 20s or older and have a significant amount of life experience behind them.

Sometimes a camp group includes an Assistant Instructor. Assistant Instructors are typically adults who are newer to the field of wilderness mentoring but share a love for working with kids outdoors. Assistants may also be responsible teens who have grown up in our programs and have likely completed our Mentor-in-Training program over the course of one or more summers.

All of our field staff attend an intensive annual summer training that focuses on safety, emergency protocol, first aid, and our core curriculum. The majority of our instructors have received outside first aid and CPR certification, which may include Wilderness First Aid. Each camp group carries a walkie-talkie and a first aid kit to address minor health needs in the field. Serious injuries and illnesses are handled by calling parents or 911 if needed. We have a camp doctor on call to advise us on medical situations and protocol.

All staff have passed criminal and sexual offender background checks, and have provided both personal and professional references.

CAMP SESSION DATES & FEES:
Our camps run from the last week in June through mid-August. All information is available on our website here: Our Camp Website Link: twocoyotes.org

SUMMER CAMP JOBS:
We are hiring for summer camp mentors who love working with kids outdoors. We are also hiring for staff to run a pre & after care program. More information on our website: Our Camp Website Link: twocoyotes.org

Hands-on access to a robot will allow you to experience real challenges and learn there is often more than one solution to a problem. You will get a quick lesson on part names and uses, an overview of the code, build a basic robot and re-design it to perform your dance moves.

Alex feels that the earlier children are taught the basics skills needed to be a leader the more likely they are to take leadership roles through high school and beyond. Alex's goal is to take everyone's skills to the next level and to help them become better versions of themselves.

Alex's Background:

As a Division-I student-athlete, Alex Coury took on a large leadership role with the NCAA as a representative of nine universities to the National Student-Athlete Advisory Committee. In this role, Alex voiced the opinions of Division-I student-athletes to the executives of the NCAA, university presidents and college administrators. Additionally, Alex served as the sole Division-I female student-athlete representative to the Committee on Women's Athletics for two years where she advocated for the advancement of emerging sports for women and the promotion of females in athletic careers.

Professionally, Alex worked in the Department of Athletics at the University of Hartford from 2008-2013 working her way from graduate assistant to Assistant Director of Athletics in just three short years.

Our programs include chess programs and camps thru USA Chess, Our Gamebuilder Video Game Creation Programs and our Active Learning Computer Enrichment Programs.

Our staff is, comprised of the best children's chess instructors in North America! The USA Chess camps are uniquely qualified to cater to the needs of the advanced scholastic player as well as the true beginner. USA Chess hit its first milestone in the summer of 2000 producing the largest chess camp ever held in the United States, with more than 250 students enrolled. What was most surprising, however, was the amount of absolute beginners in attendance - more than 50% of the total enrollment was just starting to play chess. This realization led to the national rollout tour of 100 camps in more than 70 cities. The annual tours have been immensely successful with several thousand campers attending this year alone.

USA Chess thrives on providing a structured environment that is extremely conducive to learning chess. We handpick the best children's chess instructors from all over the United States and bring them to each camp. We believe our team is most effective in teaching chess to children of all ages and levels. The exceptional organization and ever-fun curriculum has fueled much interest from scholastic players and coaches from around the country, prompting them to request USA Chess camps in their areas.

At the same summer camp locations, we also offer the immensely popular Gamebuilder Video Game Creation Camps, The Active Learning Computer Animation Programs, and other Computer Enrichment Programs such as Modding, Networking and Hosting with Minecraft. We now offer seven unique programs in all.

At these camps, children are assigned a computer for the week; they spend the week learning to create their own one-of- a- kind video games in our Gamebuilder Camps, Animation Projects in our Animation Camps, also Modding, Networking and Hosting with Minecraft.

BRIEF CAMP DESCRIPTION: "Silver Lake is a place where I can be myself, and everyone accepts me." We hear this over and over again from the young people who come to a week of camp at Silver Lake.

Come and experience Christian community. "God's Backyard" is full of amazing nature and alive with life, acceptance, new friends, and lots of silly songs.

At Silver Lake, we tackle the high and low ropes courses, swim in our lake, play games on the ballfield, sing songs around the campfire, meet lifelong friends, and strengthen our relationship with God.

Registration for Summer 2015 opens Jan. 15, 2015, at Our Camp Website Link: www.silverlakect.org.

SPECIAL NEEDS CAMPERS: To ensure your child has the best experience possible, the Director, Tim Hughes, and your dean (program leader) need to be aware in advance of any physical, emotional, or behavioral needs a child may have. While we are not equipped to handle every differently abled conferee, we will do our best to offer special support to as many children as we can. If you have questions about the camp's ability to support your child, please contact the Directors (timh[AT]ctucc.org) before registering. All information shared will be kept confidential. When registering, please include all relevant information.

CAMP INSTRUCTIONAL ACTIVITIES OFFERED:
Musical Theater, Music/Band, Video/Filmmaking/Photography, Waterfront/Aquatics, Sailing, and more.

CAMP LOCATION: Nestled at the foot of the Berkshires in the Northwest Corner of Connecticut, Silver Lake Conference Center comprises more than 60 acres on a medium-sized pond.

CAMP FACILITIES: We have 13 summer cabins and 5 year-round retreat lodges, a large summer social hall and a smaller winter dining hall, outdoor basketball and volleyball courts, high and low ropes courses, swimming and boating on our pond, two outdoor chapels, a labyrinth, five outdoor fire pits, large ballfield.

CAMP PROGRAM INFO: Silver Lake Conference Center has been welcoming conferees (campers) for a week of life-changing, community-building adventure in God's Backyard since 1957. Summer camp is open to young people in grades 4 though 12. Our conferences cover a broad range of interests and activities, from musical theater to poetry to high-energy games to sailing and canoeing. See individual conference descriptions for more information. Our week-long conferences have offered "once-in-a-lifetime experiences, over and over" to several generations of youth, helping to shape future leaders and spirited community-builders everywhere.

Each week during the summer we host five conferences for different age groups with different themes. The theme of the conference helps to shape some of the activities for the week. For example, Silver Lake's Funniest Videos will spend some time writing, shooting, and editing short films. Biking North will go on biking adventures outside of Silver Lake.

While a lot of the group's activity will center on the conference's theme, all conferences are camp experiences first: You will live at camp, eat in the social hall with the other conferences, swim in the lake, check out the high and low ropes courses, dig around in the garden, or sit around a campfire. Also, each conference takes turns leading all-camp worship one night of the week.

Silver Lake has become a sacred place to so many people, young and old. We invite you to come away from the busyness of everyday life and find out what is so special about this ministry of God's love.

Silver Lake welcomes church groups, youth groups, schools, non-profits and businesses during the Fall, Winter, and Spring.
