Nature Camps

 

Our Nature Camps, offered throughout the year, are a fantastic and fun way to immerse your child in the study of the natural world. Research indicates that children who understand more about the natural world around them will be better citizens of it. Our camps are a perfect way to spend the day when school is not in session. Our professional staff incorporates games, hikes, crafts, animal encounters, learning activities, and healthy snacks around a central theme. 

Our camps are open to students ages 6-12 years old.

Students who are 6 years old need to be 6 by the camp date and have completed kindergarten.
