Fern and Feather Nature Day Camp in Edgartown encourages children’s lasting curiosity and care for the natural world. Campers ages 4 to 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!
