    Your Child’s Safety Is Important to Us

    To put your mind at ease, several of our staff members are certified in CPR and First Aid. While attending the Eagle’s Nest Program, your child will need a sweater or jacket, rain wear, change of clothes, swimsuit, towel, carrying bag, sunscreen, pillow, blanket, favorite movie, and any favorite toy that they may want to play with. Clearly label all of your child’s items. Children who use a life jacket or swimmies should bring those also.
