Nature Day Camps

For kids ages 7-12 with an interest in the outdoors.

During the summer, kids can enjoy a series of nature day camps designed for educational fun.

These camps are offered once each month during the summer season and consist of several programs and hands-on activities. Their purpose is to enhance the learning opportunities for younger park visitors.

Each camp is different, giving participants a chance to look for bugs or take a guided hike on a nature trail. In every case, the focus of the event is to open the eyes of the participants to an exciting and unique natural world.
