If you have a child interested in getting their hands dirty on our farm, sleeping overnight in a wigwam, or kayaking the Macatawa River check them out!
Discover where the wild things are at Blandford Nature Center’s Summer Camp! Inside our 2013 brochure and registration form you will find a variety of camp offerings, including half-day, single-day and full-week sessions with a variety of fun and engaging themes that let your child reconnect to their wild side.
At Blandford Nature Center, we hope that every child has the opportunity to experience nature and history in a fun, hands-on way. Thanks to the generosity of donors and corporate sponsors, we are able to offer camp scholarships to area children that might not otherwise have the means. Please download our campership application for more details. Campership applications will be reviewed in April and recipients will be notified by the end of April. If funds remain, applications will continue to be accepted and reviewed on a rolling basis into the summer.
Our enthusiastic camp instructors are waiting to share an amazing world of wonder with your child. Here, nature is the guide - and it leads us to tadpoles in the pond, pioneers in the garden and feet in the mud! Young children ready for their first camp experience will love our Nature Buds half-day programs. Campers from 7 to 12 can choose from a wide variety of single day and full week camps with adventure camps that include overnights and field trips. Children must be able to use the toilet independently as our facility is not licensed for diaper changing.
