We have a lot of great ways for families to learn together. We ran our first summer day camp in 1997, and we now offer a host of camps for kids, youth, adults and family. Experience our fun, skill-building programs guided by highly trained staff within our hallmark 6-1 average adult-child ratio that’s so critical for safe and profound outdoor experiences.
Virtual Summer Day Camps for Youth & Family
“Huck’s Song” written by Chris Anderson. Remember when we could play outdoors all summer? Now’s your chance! Ever wish you had a mentor to help you discover the secrets of nature around your house? Now you can! All ages may participate, as you register as a household unit.
All ages can join us for Virtual Day Camps with hours of 9-10 AM Online Camp Instruction; 10-12 On-Call Mentoring while participants are outdoors, 12:00-12:30 Lunch Check-In with Afternoon Prompts; 2:30-3:00 Online Review, Show & Tell, plus 3-5 PM Extended On-Call Mentoring with 5 PM Last Check-In for participants who want to continue what they started earlier in the day.
The summer schedule runs June 15th – Sept 4th with camp themes including Virtual Secret Spot, Farm The Yard, Wild Cooking & Herbology, Wildlife Search & Rescue, Wilderness Survival Craft, and Secrets of the Ancient Scout.
Virtual Academic Year for the Whole Family
Then join us in the fall as we roll out the online edition of Wolf Journey Book One – Trail of the Neighborhood Naturalist on a path to becoming your neighborhood naturalist. Begin the journey by finding a study site where you carry out lessons of Urban & Rural Habitat Conservation throughout the course. Each time you visit your site, you will walk more intimately within the landscape, and by the time you complete the course, you will have become a key resource on the natural world for your community, and perhaps the best expert on habitat conservation in your neighborhood.
