Have you ever dreamed of becoming a vet? Immerse yourself in the veterinarian world with hands-on activities, live animals, and special guests. Take a look behind the scenes at what it takes to help injured wildlife and other animals.

This week-long, daily summer camp is designed for youth entering grades 1-3 and 4-6. Campers must be able to hike up to 2 miles over uneven and rocky terrain. 

Our Summer Nature Camps get kids outdoors, developing a deeper connection with the natural world through fun and educational activities. We provide a professional environmental education specialist for each camp and limit group size based on optimal teacher-student ratios. Meeting live animals, hiking woodland trails, role-playing, making art and craft projects, learning from scientists and special presenters, exploring natural areas, telling and listening to stories, and conducting experiments fill the campers’ days. Off-site trips may be included to study water creatures or explore regional highlights.


Due to limited parking space camp start times are staggered by age groups; more information will be sent upon registration. Accessible parking is available directly in front of the Education Building.  For questions, please email [email protected].
Campers entering grades 4th-6th:  8:30 AM – 3:15 PM, daily
Campers entering grades 1st-3rd:  8:45 AM – 3:30 PM, daily
