    Outdoor StoryWalk® Exhibit

    Calling all nature-loving readers! StoryWalk® is an interactive outdoor exhibit that turns reading into an adventure along the trails without electronic devices. Hikers can read a nature-themed story while they walk in the woods. Designed for beginning readers, the stories will appeal to all ages. On each of these dates Tenafly Nature Center will post a new story, page by page, along one of our trails for the season.

    The StoryWalk® Project was created by Anne Ferguson of Montpelier, VT, and developed in collaboration with the Vermont Bicycle & Pedestrian Coalition and the Kellogg Hubbard Library.

        To Register:

        2. Click the Register button, complete the form, and pay with a credit card. 
        3. Wait for your confirmation email and use the link to log into our online health system: CAMPDOCS. (May take up to a week to receive email)

        This is where you will tell us about your camper, fill out health information, emergency contacts, other important safety data, and submit the following required files:The Mandatory Health Packet: Universal Health Record from your child’s health care provider. 

        Including an Immunization History:

        • Please note, if your health care provider will not be including a complete immunization form the Health Department requires a written statement signed by the parent or guardian explaining how the administration of immunizing agents conflicts with the camper’s exercise of bona fide religious tenets or practices. General philosophical or moral objection to immunization shall not be sufficient for an exemption on religious grounds. 
        • A copy of your insurance card.
        • A copy of any information regarding your child's activity restrictions/special needs (ex. IEP, ISFP).
        • Complete the form submission through CAMPDOCS 7 days prior to the start of the camp session. New Jersey state law requires that campers submit a current health record each year.

        Failure to submit all forms to TNC 7 days before the first day of camp will result in forfeiture of your registration fee. No exceptions.
