Summer Day Camps

Throughout the summer, we provide various nature-themed camps for children of all abilities ranging from ages 3 to 8. These programs have a low teacher-camper ratio for the best nature learning experience. Children spend time outdoors, investigate critters living in their natural habitat in the adjacent marsh and forest and engage in games, crafts, and activities based on the week’s theme. See below for program descriptions.
