Environmental Day Camps - Pre-K to 8

 
Learning is fun!
Whenever school is out, camp is in!

The Center offers day camps for children from 3½ years old to 5th grade during regional public and private school vacation weeks and for children from 3½ years old to 8th grade all summer long. Sessions are offered by the day and by the week, from 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. with a half day option available for preschoolers. Extended care is available for children in grades 5-8. Each session is based around a different theme that includes outdoor exploration, takes advantage of the season and is full of hands-on activities. Lessons incorporate the rich natural and historic resources of Odiorne Point State Park and the Gulf of Maine, current ocean science and lots of fun. All children gain skills that positively impact their well-being and development.

Sessions are designed for each age group. Treks 4 Tots (3 ½ - 5 years old) sessions develop a child's confidence, fosters curiosity and have a lower camper to counselor ratio. Trekkers have a separate learning area. Sessions for Safari campers (K-5) have activities and content that build on what students learn in school. At 4th grade campers begin to learn how to be citizen scientists; content becomes richer and exploration extends further afield, venturing throughout Odiorne to discover new habitats. Stewards (grades 6-8) travel outside the Park to experience coastal New England.

Summer Camp registration opens January 15 for members, February 1 for non-members. Become a member and take advantage of early registration and discounts.
