NATURE ADVENTURERS

Why is Nature Adventurers Camp different? Campers are provided the opportunity to go deeper with learning outdoor skills and explore further into the park with longer hikes.

Part of Nature Adventurers Camp is letting the group direct what activities they would like to do by coming up with new and exciting adventures. The staff has the freedom to be creative when making these fun adventures come to life.

    • Campers will have an opportunity to go on a kayak adventure during the week, possibly even traveling as far as the Hollywood Oyster Company.
    • Mid-week, campers will hike to the Manor House area where they can choose to build forts with bamboo, explore the gardens, play field games like capture the flag, or simply enjoy the breeze from the river.
    • Each afternoon, campers are provided an afternoon snack and each week there is a chance to make S’mores.
    • The week ends with “Tie-Dye Friday” for a take-home memory of the week at camp.

Nature Adventurers Camp is for children ages 7 – 14 (by first day of camp session).

Nature Adventurers Camp is offered for seven weeks of our summer camp program. Both AM and PM Extended care and Drop-In Extended Care is available.
