Young Naturalist Summer Nature Camp
Start your campers on their path to becoming naturalists! Campers will track wild animals, identify trees, and learn some of the basic tools of a naturalist while exploring nature firsthand. Campers will meet LIVE animals and learn how to identify them. Off-site stream study included this week.
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 off promo code to be used towards 1 week of camp. Promotional code can only be used one time. Discount is valid if you register for 4 weeks total, which is equivalent to registering 2 campers for 2 weeks each.
