Nature Camps

Nature Fun

Do you remember those long lazy days of summer when you were a child, traipsing through the woods, building forts, turning over rocks and digging in the dirt? Your child can have those experiences and more in our Nature Camps this summer. Children will be immersed in the exploration of nature through outdoor play, hands on activities, and interactions with our birds of prey. Your child will be encouraged to become active and at ease outdoors while learning that the natural world provides endless adventures.

Why Nature for Children?

Unfortunately, many children today are growing up without positive outdoor experiences. Consequently, this lack of connection with the outdoors and nature will have a profound impact on public health, state and local economies, and environmental stewardship. To be effective and healthy leaders in the future, our children need to get outside and connect to the natural world now.

Every Kid Should Have a Chance to Go to Camp!

The Nature and Wildlife Discovery Center strives to make our camp experiences available to all children. If your family needs assistance to attend our Nature Camps, we do offer confidential scholarships, available at the pricing/registration links below.
