Adventure and learning come together at Bays Mountain Park

Staff reports • Mar 10, 2019 at 8:30 PM

KINGSPORT — This summer, your child can spend a week learning and exploring in nature at Bays Mountain Park’s summer day camp.

Registration is now open for the sessions, available to rising first- through sixth-grade students. Each week-long session is filled with outdoor, nature-oriented activities that give your child hands-on learning experiences.

Day camp hours are Monday through Friday, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Sessions are limited to 30 campers per week. Session dates are listed below.

Students entering first, second and third grades in the fall of 2019:

— June 3 to 7

— June 17 to 21

— July 1 to 5

— July 15 to 19

— July 22 to 26

Students entering fourth, fifth and sixth grades in the fall of 2019:

— June 10 to 14

— June 24 to 28

 — July 8 to 12

Campers should bring a bag lunch with a drink each day and wear appropriate clothing. Parents or guardians should plan to stay on the first morning for a short orientation about the week’s activities and expectations. Transportation to and from camp is the guardian’s responsibility.

Tuition is $60 per child. A current family membership with the park is required to register your child or grandchild for day camp. Family memberships are $50 and give your family an entire year of free entry into the park for one vehicle and up to six free passes per program (planetarium shows, barge rides and nature programs) every time you visit the park.

To register your child for day camp, pick up an application in the Nature Center or download the application from baysmountain.com. A separate application for each child must be filled out and returned with payment.

You can turn in your application at the Nature Center or mail it to the address at the bottom of the form. Please make checks payable to the Bays Mountain Park Association. Refunds will be given up to two weeks before the session. After that, refunds will be given only if the slot can be filled.
