Environmental Day Camps

Kids love our camps! Whether onsite or field-trip-based (grades 6-8), our camp programs spark curiosity and empower kids to see themselves as scientists and naturalists, excited about discovering the world around them.

Our Counselors

All camp counselors are knowledgeable, skilled educators who know how to excite children about science through hands-on learning fun. Our low camper-to-counselor ratio for each age group ensures a safe, enriching, personalized experience for every camper.

Our Campers

Children are grouped by grade, and Trekkers (ages 4 to 5) have their own classroom. For summer camp, please select session for the  grade your child is currently in.

Come find out why many of our campers return year after year and form lasting friendships!

Medical Health Forms

Medical Health forms are now to be filled out and saved in your personal CampBrain (our camp registration software) account. You will find information on camper guidelines and other required forms in CampBrain as well. If you prefer, you may download and submit printed health forms for your camper.

Treks

Whether your little trekker is ready for adventure or is a bit shy, our counselors take special care to meet children where they are at and comfortably ease them into their day. Through play-based activities and guided exploration that follows their curiosity, children gain confidence as young naturalists and scientists.

"SSC's camps are always very well organized and fun! I really appreciate the full communication with parents. The counselors are all engaging and very positive. I especially appreciate the range of opportunities even for older kids as camps for tweens/young teens can be hard to find. Thanks for a great summer!"
