Naturalist-Led Experiences

Things to do Inspired by Nature

Let's play all day Summer Camps

Is your kid entering grades 5 through 10 and adventure ready? Registration opens March 20 at 440-286-9516 for our 6th annual summer camps featuring biking, kayaking, fishing, stream exploration and sending rockets high into the sky – plus the new Claridon Woodlands serve as a base camp for all campers’ biking day and the older campers’ high ropes challenge!

Camp is offered in a week-long form for youth entering grades 5 through 7 the weeks of June 11 (Junior Naturalist Camp), June 25, July 9, July 16, July 30 and August 6.

Week-long experiences for teens entering grades 8 through 10 are the weeks of June 18 and July 23. Single-day X-Treme Adventures for the older kids will also be held July 2 and 5 (kayak challenge) and July 3 and 6 (high ropes challenge).

“New locations for camp activities that are completed every year will also include kayaking at Bass Lake Preserve,” said Naturalist Karie Wheaton. “First day ‘Survivor-like’ activities will include a fire building challenge, a ring retrieval challenge and a scavenger hunt.”

A week of camp costs $150. According to 2017 surveys, the majority of campers said they could recognize more plants and animals than they could before camp, and 100 percent of campers entering grades 5 through 7 said they enjoy outdoor activities more as a result of their camp experience.
