Nature Day Camp provides children with the freedom to explore the natural world on rambling hikes through the woods, excursions along the creek, science experiments and nature-based arts and crafts in our classroom, and games, songs, stories and plays in our outdoor shelter.

Instructors, along with the help of a volunteer high school assistant counselor, are responsible for a small group of 8-10 campers each week during morning hikes and variably sized groups during afternoon activities.
