2021 SUMMER DAY CAMP IS NOW SOLD OUT!

Please see all available opportunities and frequently asked questions below

We are blown away by the support from our community in the opening of our 2021 Summer Day Camp season! All general camp spots are officially SOLD OUT. At this time, we do not intend to open up additional camps or additional spots due to staffing limitations, state licensing requirements, and COVID guidelines. We want to extend our most sincere thank you to you all for being excited, believing, and participating in our upcoming season.

If you weren’t able to snag a spot during our member-only registration period and would like to register for a spot on the waitlist, please visit our website and go through the normal registration process. You will not be charged a registration fee when being placed on the waitlist. If a spot opens up, and you are at the top of the waitlist, you will be notified by email and prompted to pay your registration fee. Please let us know if you are no longer interested, and we will move onto the next person on the waitlist.

Lastly, thanks to a few generous sponsors, we were able to fund and hold camp spots for a Diversity Scholarship. As a part of our mission to engage and empower ALL of our community in enriching experiences in nature, we made it a priority to keep a handful of spots in various themes and age groups reserved for campers from diverse backgrounds and acquired funding to cover their registration fees. If you’re interested in applying for one of these spots with our Diversity Scholarship, please follow the link below.


Please follow the respective links below for registration and daily themes.  

Wild Sprouts (ages 6-7) 
Trail Blazers (ages 8-9) 
Outdoor Explorers (ages 10-12) 

Camp Aide applications are now open! Teens age 13-18 have the unique opportunity to spend part of their summer outdoors working alongside summer camp staff to develop leadership skills, earn community service hours, and share their love of the environment with campers!
