Earth Camp

Where Kids Explore, Learn & Grow

Earth Camp is a fun, exciting, and educational summer day camp for children ages 6-15. Kids enjoy time outdoors while learning about themselves, others, and the environment. Each week features a unique environmental theme, ranging from wildlife studies to river and watershed exploration. Memories are made as campers enjoy experiences like hiking, river walking, team building activities, art, music, drama, and more.

Thank you for a great season!
