Nature Explorers Camps for 4-6 year olds!

Our camps offer creative play, exploration and adventure, with children working together in small groups to gain nature awareness and experiential knowledge of plants, mammals, tracking, birds and survival skills. Our highly trained instructors guide young campers into experiences that nurture their connection to the earth and allow them to feel at home in nature.

Our Nature Explorers Camps for 4 to 6 year olds bring young nature-lovers of all experience-levels into safe adventures and leave them with stories they will remember for a long time.

However, fun and adventure are only part of the story. Our 1:8 staff-student ratio allows our instructors at our Nature Explorers camps to facilitate the development of tangible and intangible skills like teamwork and communication; thankfulness; awareness; patience; common sense; self confidence; problem-solving; and respect for self, each other and nature.

These skills are woven invisibly into each of our Nature Explorers camps through storytelling, active questioning and engaging nature activities. For example, campers might learn patience through the need to get close to wildlife, or teamwork and communication through the need to quickly build a group shelter. Our focus is on helping children to build skills that will serve them for a lifetime.

We look forward to sharing nature adventures with your kids at a park near you this summer!
