Camp takes place at our 700-acre wildlife sanctuary, which features protected forests, fields, and vernal pools—the perfect setting to explore a variety of ecological communities.

Our programs reveal nature through hikes, games, hands-on activities, wildlife observation, songs, and crafts. Campers spend time discovering special places, meeting new friends, playing games, and having fun outside!

What Others are Saying . . .


"It was incredible! Our camper didn't have any complaints. I am so thankful for your organization and all the things it includes. Our kiddo still says 'leave no trace' when outside." –Camp Parent

"My child was so excited about all of the nature facts he learned each day. He would say things like 'Do you know the five characteristics of a habitat? Well, I do.' He also loved the games each session and spending time with new friends." –Camp Parent
