Before we get camp underway, we wanted to give you an idea of what to expect.

What to Wear:

We will be outside for most of the day. Therefore, wear comfortable play clothes which are appropriate for the weather, and sneakers. Since we will be outside, please wear (and bring so it can be reapplied) sunscreen and bug spray.

What to Bring:

  • Bagged lunch and Snacks
  • Water bottle
  • Sunscreen and hat (if wanted) for sun protection

What not to Bring:

  • We ask that all cell phones be stored in backpacks for the day. If they are not needed, please leave them at home.
  • Outside toys or personal items that may get lost.

Drop Off/Pick Up Information:

Drop off is at 9:00 am and pick up is at 4:00 pm. Campers will be dropped off and picked up at the gates next to the Steffen Education Building. If you park in the large parking lot facing Tonawanda Creek Road, you will see the gates.

If you are running late (more than 15 minutes) or need to pick up early, please enter through the main museum entrance so that a staff member can lead your child out to join their group or radio us to bring your child in to you.

Campers will be signed in upon arrival and signed out at pick up. Only the adults/guardians listed in the registration paperwork will be allowed to pick-up a child. 

Nurturing Positive Behavior:

Children sometimes exhibit challenging behaviors such as aggression, hurtful words, or defiance. This happens (a) because children have not yet learned the crucial social, emotional, language, and cognitive skills that lead to positive behavior and/or (b) because children like to test limits, and camp tends to offer a sense of freedom where they feel they can push some limits. 

Here at BNHV, we believe that these instances of challenging behaviors are learning opportunities and train all camp staff in Positive Behavior Support. Working with campers starting day one, we develop and implement a positive behavior plan which allows us to anticipate behavioral challenges so that potential difficulties can be prevented. 

The safety of our campers and staff is of utmost importance. The following behaviors are strictly prohibited and will result in disciplinary action.

  • Bullying and/or threatening others
  • Profanity
  • Fighting
  • Stealing or damaging camp property and/or other’s property

BNHV’s disciplinary process is as follows:

  1. If any of the above behaviors are exhibited, a one-on-one verbal warning with the camper will take place.
  2. If the behavior continues, a mild consequence will be enacted. This may include: time away from the group, removal from a group activity for the day, etc.
  3. A report or phone call to the parent/guardian will be the next step if the behavior continues or escalates.
  4. An expulsion from camp will result if the behavior does not cease. There will be no refunds if a child is expelled from camp. 

Positive reinforcement is much more powerful than punishment. When campers are observed behaving well, getting along, and having fun responsibly it will be pointed out and they will be praised for it!

Photo Release:

Buffalo Niagara Heritage Village loves to include images of our visitors in our many publications and advertisements. During your child’s visit to BNHV we will be taking photos and would like permission to use your child’s likeness. If you are willing to let us take and use your child’s photograph, please read and sign the photo release at the end of the enrollment form. 

Health and Safety:

The health and safety of our campers and staff is of utmost importance. If your camper is feeling ill please refrain from bringing them to camp.
