Camp Listings 2022

Bikes!

*If your child is interested, they can bring their bike (with training wheels or without) to be left at an on-site camp for the week. Sometimes our traveling camps may request that families bring bikes for a specific day or days.  Helmets are a must! Elbow and knee pads are optional. We have tricycles that suit even our oldest campers so there is no pressure. We will allow only a small number of cyclists on our bike path in the back of the building. Please remember that riding bikes can cause bumps, bruises, and scrapes. If you are uncomfortable with your child riding, we do have the tricycles. Some of our most experienced bicyclists may ride their bikes along our widest nature path.

Food

For all of our camps, campers will need to bring their own lunch and snacks. Please pack lunches that do not need to be heated or refrigerated. Thank you.

Cancellation Policy

Please inform us at least three weeks in advance of the start of your child’s camp to receive a 50% refund minus a $20 transaction fee. Cancellations after this date will receive no refund. 

What's an "Off-Site" or "Traveling" Camp?

These camps are often held at a different location than our "on site" camps, which are held at our year-round location on Route 28 in Phoenicia. Sometimes our camps are still held at the 28 location, but we exclusively spend our time on the 10 acres of land or in the NYS "forever wild" land behind the preschool. Other locations include Glenbrook Park, Kenneth Wilson Campgrounds, the Ashokan Reservoir, private property in Shokan, and The Catskills Visitor Center, to name a few. The exact locations for the week are released to enrolled families in the weeks preceding the camp. At no time will Woodland Playhouse staff transport a camper. Parents or caregivers will drop off their campers at the "off site" location each day, and the camp will remain at that specific location for the entire day. Often times camps will spend time at several different locations throughout the week. 

Pricing (2022)

Woodland Playhouse is committed to remaining affordable without sacrificing the quality of care the campers receive. We offer sibling discounts, twin discounts, and a whole summer sign up discount. Reach out to Christina for more information. We also offer scholarships or partial scholarships to families in need. If you are interested in signing up for camp and pricing makes us inaccessible to you, please contact Christina. 

Our prices per week vary based on the individual camp, the date the payment is received, and the age of the camper.

Please note no refunds can be made for COVID related camp closures.

COVID protocols

This will be our third summer running camp amid COVID-19. As we all have heard over and over again, this is a constantly changing situation. As things shift with the NYS and Ulster County Department of Health as well as the CDC, we will shift, too. Please note that we have had COVID positive individuals at Woodland Playhouse both during the school year and in summer 2021 and each case has remained isolated with no community spread (a sign that our policies and procedures are working!). As it stands now, in January, here are some of the things we’ve adjusted to keep our campers and counselors safe.

  • If a camper or a household member of the camper is ill, the camper must stay home.

  • Masks are worn when indoors by ALL individuals, regardless of vaccination status.

  • Masks are not required when outdoors. Our camps are all outdoors (with the exceptions of extreme weather and bathrooms).

  • When indoors at Woodland Playhouse, the air purifications systems are running and the back doors are open for ventilation.

  • Non-essential personnel are excluded from camp.

Where and When Do We Sign Up?

We are a very small operation, so we do not have an online sign up. To enroll or ask questions, contact Christina directly at ChristinaWoodlandPlayhouse@gmail.com .  Registration is open now through the first day of the camp!
