Riveredge Nature Center Summer Camps (Ages 3-17)

The Riveredge Nature Journeys camps are more than just a fun summer diversion; they connect people (preschool through adult) with the natural world in a deep and meaningful way, building skills and awareness from one camp to the next. Their priority is to provide an unforgettable experience for each and every one of the campers. Campers participate in hands-on explorations as they ask questions about the mysteries of the natural world, uncover evidence at their fingertips, and draw conclusions based on personal experiences. Of course, there is plenty of time for engaging in unstructured play throughout the day! The Riveredge Nature Center wants kids to enjoy the outdoors, feel free from the routines of the school year, get dirty, and have fun. At Riveredge, campers get the quintessential youth outdoor experience that used to be a central part of American history and culture.
