Our Summer Nature Camps, designed for youth entering grades 1st – 6th, get kids outdoors, developing a deeper connection with the natural world through fun and educational activities. We provide a professional environmental education specialist for each camp and limit group size based on optimal teacher-student ratios. Meeting live animals, hiking woodland trails, playing games, making art and craft projects, learning from scientists and special presenters, exploring natural areas, and conducting experiments fill the campers’ days. Off-site trips may be included to study water creatures or explore regional highlights. Campers can choose topics of interest or join us for the entire summer!
Do you know a young person who would benefit from time outdoors? The IDEA Fund Nature Camp Scholarship will cover the full tuition costs of Summer Nature Camp for each scholarship recipient. Partial aid may also be awarded. For more details and to submit an application, please use the following link:
