Summer Camps

We had a great Summer 2017! If you missed out on the fun this year, make plans to join us in Summer 2018.

Registration will open in March 2018.

Our camps provide children with hands-on explorations in nature, science and art that will spark their imagination and inspire environmental stewardship. Experienced teachers will guide campers through indoor and outdoor activities, games and adventures.

Camps are designed for specific ages and/or grades. Children need to be the specified age by the date the camp occurs. The grade level should be the grade your child will be entering in the fall 2017.

If you are joining us for a half day camp, bring a small snack. Bring a lunch and a snack, if you are attending a full day camp.
