Wellfleet Bay Natural History Day Camp
Natural History Day Camp
Our summer camp programs in Wellfleet and Chatham, which are designed for children ages 4 - 13, promote curiosity about the natural world through fun and immersive outdoor experiences. Every week at camp is unique, as each age group explores a new theme every week throughout the summer. Programs run Monday through Friday.
Wellfleet Bay Natural History Day Camp (June 17 – August 30) is based at the Wellfleet Bay Wildlife Sanctuary. All campers enjoy exploring the woodlands, marsh, and beach on-site, and older campers travel off-site for special activities, such as kayaking, whale watching, and snorkeling.
Natural History Day Camp in Chatham (July 8 – August 16), our satellite camp location, is based at the Chatham Middle School. The PEEP group enjoys a half-day program on-site exploring ponds, fields, and woodlands. The TURTLE group spends one day off-site discovering habitats such as marshes, beaches, and woodlands and the rest of the week they spend on-site. The SEAL and SHARK groups goes off-site every day on field trips such as kayak trips, beach hikes, seal cruises, boat trips, hikes on islands, and much more!
