Camp runs in one-week sessions from early July through the end of August. Each session is tailored to a specific age group. Campers explore the Nature Center’s forest and grounds and help care for the animal residents. Older campers learn wilderness survival skills through participation in activities such as fire building, shelter construction, tracking techniques, and plant identification.
Half-day camps (Grades K-1, 2-3) are $350 per child.
Full-day camps (Grades 4-5) are $450 per child.
Membership is required to register for camp!
