Two Teen Nature Camps This July

We still have space in two great teen nature camps (ages 12-14) this summer! These camps run back to back for a possible two week experience. First, STEM in Nature Camp runs from 7/11 to 7/15, exploring real life environmental issues while enjoying the wildnerness in Heritage Park. And our Outdoor Recreation Sampler runs from 7/18 to 7/22 and includes hiking, fishing, river walks, archery, disc golf, and more.

All our Nature Summer Camps take place at Heritage Park. Sign up below:
