Our Camp Philosophy

We believe it’s important for children learn and grow through their interactions with nature as well as with each other. We also believe in connecting people of all ages, backgrounds, and abilities with nature to enhance quality of life and to spark an interest in preserving nature for future generations. Our camp provides opportunities for free play, during which campers of various ages and developmental stages interact, learn important social skills, and gain appreciation for nature. We also have structured learning opportunities throughout the day.

What Others are Saying . . .

"Moose Hill Camp is what summer camp should be: It gets our kids outside in nature and interacting with other kids. Our children use the knowledge they develop at Moose Hill every day of the year. They learn an amazing amount about nature, and they also learn how to model the respectful way that all members of the staff interact with each other and with the campers. The innovative and well-planned options top off what is the perfect summer experience for our children."
