During these first two weeks, campers are introduced to many of the topics covered in more detail in later weeks. They utilize their five senses to investigate dirt and mud, insects, plants, and animals.

Kindergarten – 12 years

It’s all about playing in the dirt! Campers squish and squelch in the mud, investigating not only what is in dirt, but who as well! Wallowing pigs and wiggly worms are just the beginning of what campers find while digging in the dirt!

Junior & Senior Camps

Camp Nature Kids is an unforgettable ten-week odyssey that transforms campers into miniature scientists, explorers and adventurers as they investigate the wide and wonderful world beyond their back door.

Chirp like a cricket? Hop like a grasshopper? Flitter and flutter like butterflies? There are so many interesting insects for campers to investigate!

Offering exciting, new and fun outdoor experiences everyday.

Animals have many characteristics that make them perfectly suited to their habitats. By slithering like snakes, hopping like rabbits, and flying like owls, campers investigate reptiles, mammals, and birds representing unique habitats.

Camping and hiking are adventures full of fun and exciting activities- pitching a tent and sleeping under the stars, using a compass, and cooking over a campfire. As campers travel, other amazing habitats are explored.

By the end of the camp – after all of their exploring, examining, creating and sharing – we’re sure that the greatest find they’ll discover is an enduring love of Mother Nature and their very own “wild side.”
