Featured Camp: Nature Quest Summer Camp

Welcome to Nature Quest Summer Camp! We are so excited to be setting off on adventures aboard The Nature Bus with your child this summer! Register Now!

Each day will be packed with opportunities for 8-12-year-old campers to observe, experience, and learn about nature. The overall “vibe” of our camp is a peaceful feeling. Camp days are filled with zen-like, relaxing activities to encourage children to use their senses to experience nature in a manner in which naturalists approach the natural world. Our goal is to awe children, inspire a sense of wonder, and develop their naturalist skills.
