Each member of the staff provides enthusiasm for outdoor exploration and a passion for education. They are environmental educators, teachers, and camp instructors—many of whom are former Habitat campers!


Staff Selection Criteria

Camp staff are carefully hired for their maturity and caring attitude toward children. All staff must pass a background check and receive training in safety, child development, and nature study prior to the start of camp. Lead instructors are certified in first aid and CPR.


Camp Director—Jane Higgins

Habitat Nature Day Camp is directed by Jane Higgins, who joined the Habitat Education Center staff in 2000. Whether Jane is searching for fawns with Ramblers, singing songs with Explorers, or teaching tree ID skills to Ecologists, a day at camp is a good day for her!
