Fern & Feather Nature Camp in Edgartown encourages children's lasting curiosity and care for the natural world. Campers ages 5–14 have fun and make friends as they explore the nature of Martha's Vineyard at our 350-acre wildlife sanctuary. Outdoor games, hands-on nature activities, wildlife observations, hikes, stories, crafts, and camp songs make ours a one-of-a-kind summer experience!
