Welcome to Arcadia Nature Day Camp!

Arcadia campers hiking a trail

At Arcadia Nature Day Camp, children can develop their interest in the outdoors, connect with nature, and have the freedom to play and gain confidence in the natural world. Camp takes place on more than 700 acres of protected forests, fields, and vernal pools, providing the perfect setting to explore a variety of ecological communities. Campers spend time discovering the natural world, meeting new friends, playing noncompetitive games, and having fun outside! 


One- and two-week sessions have campers ages 4–16 discovering and learning about a variety of local habitats and wildlife. Daily activities include trail explorations, habitat investigations, hands-on activities, wildlife observation, creative games and crafts, and more. Small group sizes allow us to provide a high-quality experience and a welcoming, supportive environment. Each day a new adventure awaits! Learn More >

At our camp, discovery takes center stage. Campers are encouraged to explore and appreciate the miracles and mysteries of our natural world. Through hands-on learning, they come to understand their place in nature as well as the importance of preserving it. Learn More >


Camp staff are chosen for their enthusiasm, experience, knowledge, and ability to work with children. They are college graduates or undergraduates who work in or study an environmental or educational field. Learn More >
