Summer Day Camp 2014

Start a wild adventure at Blandford Nature Center’s Summer Day Camp! Inside our 2014 brochure 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.

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, 4-6 years old, ready for their first camp experience will love our Nature Buds half-day programs.
Children must be able to use the toilet independently as our facility is not licensed for diaper changing.  Campers 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.

Are you over 12 & LOVE Summer Day Camp? Be a part of the action by becoming a Camp Aide Volunteer!

We look forward to helping your family discover the wonders of summer. Once you have selected your camps, return the registration forms before they fill up!  There is a minimum of 10 participants for each camp.

To Register: 

Once you have selected your favorite camps, registration is easy! You can choose your favorite method. You can print off, fill out, and send in the registration forms found on the back of the brochure with your payment.

You can fill out the online form. Once your responses have been received through the Google Form, you will receive an email from the registrar confirming your registration and payment details. Your payment is due two weeks from the date of receiving the confirmation email.

Registration begins March 1 for members and April 1 for non members.


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 are due May 16, 2014.  Applications received by this deadline will be reviewed by a committee and recipients will be notified by May 30, 2014.
