Camp Director – Jane Higgins

Camp is directed by Jane Higgins (she/her), who joined Habitat Education Center in 2000. Whether Jane is searching for caterpillars with Pathfinders, singing songs with Explorers, or teaching animal adaptations to Ecologists, a day at camp is a good day!

Our Camp Staff

Camp staff are carefully hired for their maturity and caring attitude toward children. They are environmental educators, teachers, and camp instructors—many of whom are former Habitat campers! Each member of the staff provides enthusiasm for outdoor exploration and a passion for education. Small group sizes ensure that campers stay safe and engaged.

All staff must pass a background check and receive training in safety (including COVID-19 protocols), child development, and nature study prior to the start of camp. Lead Instructors are certified in first aid and CPR.

What Others Are Saying . . .

"My daughters LOVED all of the skits, songs, and games. Every night we heard about the skits and how funny the counselors all were. Thank you for making everything so fun—their reviews were all positive and we couldn’t be more thrilled about their experience."
