School Program Policies and Pricing 

Program Policies

Masks: All participants must have a mask with them at all times.

 

To help preserve a safe environment for everyone, masks will be required of all staff and participants under certain circumstances (regardless of vaccination status):

  • When in our pavilion or pond side tent (during winter, with more limited ventilation, these spaces are considered ‘indoor’)

  • When going indoors to use the bathrooms.

  • Sheltering indoors for weather or emergencies.

  • First aid scenarios where close contact may be required.

  • Activities where participants will be in close proximity for extended periods of time (as determined by our educators.

 

Masks are not required during outdoor programming except under certain circumstances:

  • First aid scenarios where close contact may be required

  • Activities where participants will be in close proximity for extended periods of time (as determined by our educators.)

 

Participants and staff who choose to wear a mask throughout any program are welcome to do so.

Weather: Programs are taught outdoors and run drizzle or shine. Should your program need to be cancelled due to heavy rains, high winds, 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.

  • Teachers and Chaperones: Are expected to monitor student behavior during the visit. This includes modeling appropriate behavior such as staying on the trail, staying with the group, and not using personal cell phones during a program.
