“My daughter does not particularly like camps but by the end of her first day she was dragging me into the forest to eat an edible plant and couldn’t stop chatting about her daily activities. The quality of teaching is superb and we will definitely be coming back next summer!”

– Mother of 10-year-old camper

“My kiddo had a fantastic time. If she could have stayed in camp for two or three or ten weeks she would have.”

– Jenny T. (Mother of 7-year-old camper)

“My child discovered courage and resilience while spending time with skilled mentors and new friends in the outdoors this summer. Picking him up each day, he was joyful and at peace. After the great experience we had, we are continuing his adventure in the year-long program.”

– Jessica (Mother of 7-year-old camper)

“Every day when I picked him up, my son was muddy, overflowing with anecdotes from the day, and bone-tired from hiking around all day long. I love his newfound sense of excitement about the wonders of nature!”

– Karen (Mother of a 7-year-old camper)

Your child will have an incredible week in nature! Nature Adventure Day Camp is our flagship summer camp program. Each nature adventure week is unique and many campers return year after year or attend multiple weeks in one summer!

Campers will explore the world through hands-on activities, nature games, storytelling and songs. They’ll discover mud, bugs and plants with new and returning friends, or bring a friend to create new memories together.
