Education and Nature Camps
An educational camp during a break from school? You bet! These camps are far removed from sitting in a classroom and are anything but boring. Open up new possibilities for your child with these exciting progams that clue kids in to the most fun and interesting aspects of science, math, technology, and the natural world.
This isn’t classroom science! At science camps, kids construct rockets and robots, learn how to use spy equipment and forensic tools from crime scene labs or make paper, build geodesic domes, and learn about roller-coaster physics.
Year-round nature camps teach kids about ecology and their environement through snowshoeing (weather-permitting), forest exploration and orienteering, and by tracking animals and discovering edible plants, along with hikes and outdoor play.
