School Program Policies and Pricing 

Program Policies



Masks are strongly encouraged but no longer required at Woodcock of program participants or employees. However, masking is still recommended when distancing is not possible indoors or when you might find yourself in close contact with individuals when outdoors Participants and staff who choose to wear a mask throughout any program are welcome to do so. Please refer to the CDC guidelines for appropriate facial coverings. If you or your students are experiencing Covid symptoms, please stay home. If you or your students test positive for Covid after attending one of our programs, please contact our office. 


Weather: Programs are taught outdoors and run drizzle or shine. Should your program need to be cancelled due to heavy rains, high winds, extreme heat, snow, etc., we will do our best to reschedule. We are unable to reserve rain or snow dates in advance.


Woodcock does not have a water fountain or supply bottled water. Students should bring their own water bottles which can be refilled. Please no drink boxes (clear straw wrappers can be harmful to our wildlife).

Trash removal is your responsibility. Please bring a trash bag for your garbage and take it with you when you leave.



Important Information for Teachers and Parents

  • Attire: Students and chaperones should dress for the weather with appropriate footwear (closed-toed) for walking on trails. Layers are recommended to regulate temperature.

  • Insect Repellent: It is recommended that clothing and shoes be sprayed with an insect/tick repellent before arriving. We advise a tick check when students go home.
