CAMP KERN

Tipp Monroe Community Services is proud to announce that the 2017 CAMP KERN trip will be held on Friday, February 17 & Saturday, February 18. Registration and payment deadline is February 1, 2017. Registration forms will be available at TMCS and LT Ball beginning January 5, 2017. Cost per child is $70.00. A limited number of scholarships are available.

For those of you who are not familiar with Camp Kern, it is a two-day educational adventure. The children will participate in activities that focus on science, social studies, and group skills. The program teaches independence and decision-making through many hands-on activities. It is an exciting and educational opportunity for our Fifth graders to experience.
 

PROGRAM Your child will be participating in a highly-organized learning experience. We teach about the outdoors by being outdoors. He or she may go on a fossil hunt, meet costumed “pioneers” from the year 1810, walk through our peaceful 200 year old Beech forest, and/or collect and study critters from our ponds. Evenings conclude with volunteer-led activities.

FACILITIES Camp Kern is accredited by the American Camping Association, having met high standards of excellence in staff, administration, program, health and safety. The facilities are completely winterized and kept in excellent condition by our maintenance staff.

SUPERVISION The camp naturalists and parent volunteers combine for a ratio of about one adult leader to every 6-10 students. The students are actively involved in supervised programs the entire day. Parent Chaperones provide overnight supervision in the cabins.

FOOD The wholesome meals, served family-style, have earned Camp Kern’s kitchen an enviable reputation among camps coast to coast. Designated students act as “hoppers”, setting the tables and keeping platters full.

MEDICAL Minor health problems are taken care of by the Camp Kern staff or the volunteer nurse in the camp Health Center. The Bethesda Care Center is located just six miles from camp and is open 24 hours to handle any possible emergencies. Parents are immediately notified of any necessary care.

CLOTHING It is very important that your child has clothing that will suit whatever weather may occur (see “Packing List”). We will do indoor activities if it is bitterly cold or if there is a thunderstorm, but will venture out in “normal “ amounts of wind, rain, snow or cold. Clothing that is left behind when the group leaves camp will be stored at Camp Kern for one full week.

LOCATION Camp Kern is located six miles east of Lebanon, Ohio, on State Route 350 (about ten minutes north of King’s Island, off I-71). Phone number is 513-932-3756.
