Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion
We strive to create a safe and equitable space for all children and staff to be able to be their best selves. We define equity as the opportunity for every individual to have the ability to reach their full potential. Our definition of equity encompasses race, ethnicity, gender, religion, sexual orientation, nation of origin, ability and alterability/disability, language, experiences, education, socioeconomic status, social/emotional or developmental experience, and physical appearance. We welcome and strive to provide a warm, nurturing environment for all. If your student needs extra support to feel welcome, safe, and supported, please contact us so that we can work with you to find the best solutions. Because of the wide variety of terrain at each site, students with physical limitations should contact us prior to registration so that we can make sure we will be able to serve your child’s needs.
These policies are here to allow us adequate time to contact families with campers on the waiting list and make informed decisions regarding weekly supplies and camp staff schedules.

We reserve the right to cancel for a period of time if the administration believes that it is necessary for the safety of the children or adherence to law. Examples of reasons for closures include, but are not limited to: extreme and inclement weather, and national and local disasters and/or emergencies. These are considered circumstances beyond our control and no reimbursement will be given for fees paid for that time. As an entirely outdoor summer camp, EdenAcres summer camp may be more affected by extreme weather than other camps with access to indoor spaces.
