Environmental Day Camps

Learning is fun!

Treks 4 Tots, the Center's day camp for children 3 ½ to 5 years old, is offered during regional public and private school vacation weeks and all summer long. Sessions feature a low naturalist-child ratio, and are available by the day or by the week. Each session has a different theme that includes outdoor exploration, takes advantage of the season and is full of hands-on activities. All children gain skills that positively impact their well-being and development. Trekkers have a separate learning area.

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