Fern and Feather Day Camp encourages children’s lasting curiosity and care for the natural world. Outdoor games, hands-on nature activities, wildlife observations, hikes, stories, crafts, and camp songs make Fern and Feather a one-of-a-kind summer experience! Small group sizes ensure that our counselors can develop a relationship with each child, creating a caring, supporting environment.


Campers ages 4–13 have fun and make friends as they explore forest, field, marsh, pond, and seashore habitats during themed weekly sessions. Outdoor games, hands-on nature activities, wildlife observations, hikes, stories, crafts, and camp songs make Fern and Feather a one-of-a-kind summer experience! Learn more >

Our camp program is designed to connect children to their surroundings and instill a lifelong appreciation for the natural world. Our goal is to foster awareness and appreciation of nature, to teach responsibility for the environment, and to promote an understanding of our place in nature. Camp activities are carefully planned to meet these goals and create fun and memorable experiences. Learn More >


Camp staff members are chosen for their enthusiasm, experience, knowledge, and ability to work with children outdoors. Staff are first aid-, CPR-, and/or lifeguard-certified and attend pre-camp training in safety, child development, and natural history. Learn More >
