Once we receive your online registration, we'll email an invoice with details about how to pay by mail or online by credit card. Your registration is not complete until payment is received!
Upon receipt of payment, you'll receive a confirmation email, which will also contain a parent handbook, a health form, waiver and photo release form. The handbook explains what campers should bring, how to dress, directions for drop off and pick up, camp rules, and other useful information.
All forms must be completed and returned one week prior to camp. If you are a returning camper from any of our 2019 camps, your confirmation will contain any previously submitted forms. We ask that you take the time to review the information and confirm that it is still up to date or make appropriate changes.

Spring Exploration: Plants, Animals, Weather and Water!
Regrowth & Rebirth! Campers will explore some of the most distinctive signs of spring, including wildflowers, spring ephemerals, and flowering trees during forest hikes. We'll use plants for craft inspiration, and play some fun plant-themed games.
Weather & Water! Campers will learn about the changing seasons and the role of our watershed by exploring the Blue Mine Brook, spring vernal pools, and our raingarden, and have fun with water experiments.
All About Animals! We'll enter the world of animals as we learn about their big jobs that happen every spring, including migration and reproduction, and learn how to observe, identify, track and inhabit the world of our local fauna.
Surprise Special Guests! We can't tell you who they are... but they will be awesome!
Note: the activities will vary to accommodate the weather, site conditions and special guests.

Our beautiful 152 acre property features a historic main building, covered pavilion, picnic grove, recreation field, classrooms, hiking trails, and a stream for nature programs and exploring. The program runs from April 13th-17th (5 days) when many area schools are off for spring break.
Each day incorporates fun and immersive experiences and a variety of nature-focused activities, to enhance your child’s enjoyment and understanding of the wonderful world around them. Crafts and games will focus on ecology, science, flora and fauna and the environment, and will incorporate the natural surroundings. Much of each day will be spent outside (weather permitting).
