2018 Summer Outdoor Adventure Camp

2018 Summer Outdoor Adventure Camp Registration is Open

Through hikes, games, crafts, interactive learning and a whole lot of fun, your child will gain an appreciation for nature and the outdoor world! Summer Outdoor Adventure Camp is offered to children Grades K through 9 and will explore a new topic each day. During the summer, each week offers a different theme within each age group, with visits to off-site locations for Nature's Explorers in Grades 3-5 and Eco Rangers in Grades 6-9. Summer Outdoor Adventure Camp sessions fill up quickly - don't miss out!

Experience Less Screen and More Nature This Summer!

Don't forget to check out Nature Story Time, which is a way to explore the outdoors and get a taste of what camp has to offer with a smaller time commitment, and it allows  adult and child to spend time together.
