Learn why opossums have naked tails, vultures have bald heads, and mosquitos buzz in people’s ears through local to international stories and tall tales. These stories will guide our outdoor explorations. Meeting LIVE animals, fun activities, basket weaving, crafts, and music will reinforce our newly found knowledge. 

This week-long, daily summer camp is designed for youth entering grades 1-3.

Our Summer Nature Camps, designed for youth entering grades 1st – 6th, 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.

Campers can choose topics of interest or join us for the entire summer! Campers who register for 4 or more weeks can receive a $50 discount (off total, not per week). Contact Jamie Dawson at [email protected] to inquire. Evening Care 3:30-4:30 PM available for $25 per week.
