COVID-19 Update

In response to COVID-19, your kids, our staff, and the extended Forest Floor community are our top priority. We are closely reviewing and updating how we move forward based on guidance from public health officials and recommendations from the American Camp Association. 

Summer Camps Are Still On
Registration is still open for our full line-up of summer camps starting in June. Based on the current three-phased reopening guidelines provided by both the North Carolina state and federal government, we anticipate a full summer of in-person camps. In the event that our summer camps require modified plans we will rapidly develop alternative and exciting camp options and communicate with parents ASAP.  See below for our COVID-19 Cancellation Policy.

Online Camps
In addition to our outdoor summer camps, our staff is working hard to develop a variety of Outdoor & Online Camps. When our in-person programming stopped in mid-March the Forest Floor team rose to the occasion, making a swift transition to online classes for our weekly homeschool programs. Since then we've learned how to put on a Zoom class that is fun, educational, and most importantly, gets kids excited to go outside.

More Important Than Ever
These are challenging times for many people, children included. At Forest Floor we believe that now more than ever kids need to feel resilient and capable. We’re proud to continue offering an antidote to the isolation and disappointment children may be feeling.

Our camps help kids increase their mental and physical health by providing the opportunity for:

  • Being out in the natural world, learning and growing with peers, guided by skilled and caring mentors.
  • Developing fundamental skills that have served humans for thousands of years and which feel increasingly relevant today.
  • Getting exercise and fresh air to boost the immune system.
  • Building real friendships centered around a mutual love of the outdoors.


Health and Safety
We are staying up-to-date with all the health and safety recommendations and continue to monitor guidelines from public health authorities and the American Camp Association. We are taking precautions to increase our sanitation protocols, including installing no-touch hand-washing stations, and will continue finding innovative ways to adapt our health and wellness policies.


COVID-19 Cancellation Policy
Because we understand the economic impacts of COVID-19 on many families we've updated our cancellation policy so you can register for camps without concern. Families are eligible for a full 100% refund of all payments for a summer camp if:

  • Forest Floor cancels any summer program due to the COVID-19 pandemic
  • You need to cancel because your family is adversely impacted by COVID-19 (job loss, illness, caring for sick family members, etc.)
  • AND in the event of cancellation (either on our part or yours)if you are in a position to donate your registration as a scholarship it would be a huge help to both Forest Floor and families in need.

Our standard cancellation policy will apply for all non-COVID related cancellations. To cancel an existing registration please email forestfloorwp@gmail.com with an explanation for the cancelation. 


How is Forest Floor weathering COVID-19?
Forest Floor is experiencing serious financial impacts from COVID-19. Our spring program enrollment was much lower than expected and we still have over 100 summer camp spots open. If you have the means, please consider donating to our Scholarship Fund to support both our organization and families in need.
