Due to overwhelming need for financial assistance, we have closed registration for Tiers 1-3. Tier 4 Registration is still available by phone only. If you are unable to pay the Tiers 4 or 5 tuition for camp, we encourage you to add your name to our waitlist. As we continue to secure funding across the state, we will open more spaces at lower tiers where possible. 

What Others Are Saying...

"North River Nature Camp is run by people who truly care about kids and the natural world. It's a perfect fit for us. The staff are really great at making everyone feel welcome. The games they play help the kids get to know each other easily. He always learns something new, loves the projects he makes, and comes home excited to play in the woods and show me what he's learned." —2023 Camp Parent
