Nature Day Camps


Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, we have made the difficult decision to cancel our upcoming Spring Nature Day Camps, scheduled for April 20-24, 2020.

However, we are continuing to plan for our Summer Nature Day Camps this July and August. Below, you can choose from two weeklong sessions (40 hours of fun programming). Session A will be held from July 20th to 24th, while Session B will be held from August 3rd to 7th. Our Summer Nature Day Camps are open for children entering grades 4 through 6.

Don’t forget to “like” the Friends’ Facebook page for additional information, updates, and fun opportunities to educate yourself while you’re practicing social distancing! And as always, please feel free to reach out to our Education Director, Cami Wilbert, with any questions or concerns by emailing her at:

We look forward to seeing you in the near future! In the interim, we at the Friends wish you the best of health.
