Caring for Children In Camp

NCWHS is a safe and nurturing place for children.
Here are a few guidelines.
Thank you for taking the time to read this thoroughly.


❤  NCWHS is an adult conference with children welcome.
Please be responsible that your children are not disruptive to classes and other events.

❤  Please always know where your children are. It is tempting, we know, to let them run about in a safe environment. Please be sure you know where they are

❤  NEVER let children be at the creek without an adult

❤  Please bring snacks for your child, food lines can take awhile

❤  Please help your child understand how to properly flush camp toilets. You have to hold the handle down or up until the bowl is completely empty

❤ If you have a toddler toddling about without a diaper, please keep a close eye and clean up any dropping


Thank-you very much for your cooperation.
We are looking forward to a very fun and safe weekend with the children!


Using Childcare

Childcare is a very fun and nurturing Waldorf-inspired place for potty-trained children to play and explore while Mamas, Aunties and Care-takers attend classes. 

❤  Childcare is for potty trained children

❤  Childcare opens fifteen minutes before each class session begins.

❤  Sign your child in by making contact between you, your child, and one of the childcare coordinators. Do not just drop them off without this.

❤  Childcare closes fifteen minutes after each class session ends.

❤  When The Fairie is hanging over the door of the tipi, Childcare is closed.

❤  Be sure your child understands that s/he may not wander to other parts of camp while signed into childcare. If your child wants to leave, we will come get you.

❤  While your child is in childcare we need to know where you are at all times. If you change location please let us know.

❤  If your Community Work or Work Exchange goes beyond class times, arrange to have a friend pick up your child.

❤  Snacks will be provided during Childcare. If your child has special diet needs please provide appropriate snacks.

❤  Please send your child to Childcare with the following items:

  1. re-fillable water bottle,
  2. plate or bowl and cup for snacks
  3. change of clothes
  4. shoes or sandals
