At Habitat Nature Day Camp, we encourage campers ages 4 to 15 to explore their surroundings and discover new interests and talents. We want them to question and challenge their understanding of nature and their place within it. And we strive to create a community that connects campers in lasting friendships. We hope that your child will come to love Habitat and its camp program as so many have in the past.
