General Camp Information

Drop-Off and Pick-Up

Drop-off begins at 8 a.m. Students must be picked up by 4:30 p.m. An adult must sign-in/out your student each day. During the drop-off and pick-up periods we will have games and other activities available for campers to work on independently or in small groups.

Drop-off and pick-up will take place at the main entrance of the Educational Collaborative (EC) building on CNM’s Main Campus.  

Adults will be asked to show a photo ID at pickup. We will not release a child to anyone not listed on the child’s pickup list.

Late drop-off/early pick-up: Let us know (either at check-in/out or via email (camps@cnm.edu)) if you will be picking up early or dropping off late. Campers will visit different areas of the campus during the day, so may not be in the drop-off/pick-up location.

COVID-19 Safety Protocols

 We will be following CNM’s Campus Safety Protocols during summer camp. Masks are recommended, but not required. All participants must complete a health assessment at drop-off. If your child is feeling sick or exhibiting any symptoms, even if you think it's not COVID-19, keep them home. If your child begins to exhibit symptoms while at camp, we will call you to pick them up.

Cancellation Policy

Refunds can be requested through Eventbrite up to one week before the start of camp. Eventbrite service fees are non-refundable. Camp registrations cancelled less than one week before the start of a camp will not be refunded.

Attending with Friends or Relatives

Depending on enrollment, there may be multiple sections of camp. If your child wishes to be in the same section as a friend/relative who has also registered for camp, please email us at camps@cnm.edu before the registration deadline and we will try to accommodate your request.
