At Arcadia Nature Camp in Easthampton and Northampton, children ages 5–15 develop their interests in the outdoors, connect with nature, and have the freedom to play and gain confidence in themselves while exploring the natural world. Campers have fun, play games, make friends, get a little muddy, discover nature, and learn how to protect it.

Our 700-acre wildlife sanctuary features protected forests, fields, and vernal pools. Each session includes field or pond explorations, nature play, crafts, games, and lots of hikes!
