Information for Parents
We want our parents to be excited about their children's stay at our camp. It's our hope that you will feel comfortable and confident that your child will have a safe and valuable experience here.
The ACOS program is a fun and interactive way for children to learn about science and nature in a well-structured, safe environment. We spend a lot of time outdoors and depend on you to make sure your child is prepared for the weather and activities with the appropriate clothing, footwear, and sleeping bags. We take care of the rest. You child will return before you know it, eager to share stories of adventures and discoveries.
You should expect to receive letters and forms from your child's teachers as the visit to Chapel Rock approaches. You can also find more information through the following links:Packing List

What parents are saying:
"The ACOS seems well organized and very centered around the students. The camp staff was amazing and I was truly impressed with their patience and ability to reach the mind of a fifth-grader."
"Each and every staff member exceeded my expectations and seemed like they truly loved what they do. Thank you for the experience. ACOS created memories that will last a lifetime."
"The staff made an effort to know the student's names. They taught with enthusiasm while being safety aware."
What kids are saying:
"Coming here and doing all of these activities has made me grow as a leader. I've learned to count on others and about working together. With all of these experiences I can use these skills in daily life. All these games have made me learn new things about my peers."
"Thank you for the kayaking staff, they really helped a lot. They taught me something different, I tried something that I have never done before and I enjoyed it. It was super tiring but it was great. Hard work pays off."
"I'm going to take all the memories that we had in this trip and remember them the rest of my life. I would love to come here again and get to see you guys again."
"Thank you for making sure that I was safe at all times. I really did feel completely safe. Even on the high ropes course. I know that safety is your camp's first priority."
"Thank you so much for hosting us at camp. I enjoyed the nature hike with Kelly, it was amazing. The food you gave us was delicious all week. Thank you again for having a really clean camp. The staff was wonderful when telling us the rules, cleaning the camp, and just being nice."
