This week-long exploration of a local park is an opportunity to investigate the nature in our community with our trained educators and other inquisitive young people. Every day will include time for play, an investigation of the life around us, and community-building activities. Ellison Park provides the perfect opportunity to understand why fields, forests, and wetlands are special places.

Program Details

Spaces are available for 18 participants each week on a first come, first served basis. A waiting list will be started once all spaces are filled.

Upon registration you will be sent a liability waiver and additional information, which must be completed before the first day of camp.
Registration is for all five days.

The sliding scale is designed to provide options that fit your budget while providing for the sustainability of our programs. Please choose the option that best balances these factors. We want this camp to be accessible to all, please reach out to discuss alternative pricing and payment arrangements.

Refunds will be provided up to 10 days before the camp begins. After that refunds will be considered on a case by case basis.

Participants are responsible for bringing their own lunches and water bottles.

A snack and water will be provided throughout the day.

Health and Safety

Before registering, please consider whether your child is ready to participate in a camp that is outdoors for seven hours of the day.

Staff are trained in first aid.

Covered shelter, water, and bathrooms will be available at all times.

Please let us know if your child needs any accommodations. Inclusivity is important to us and we will make every effort to accommodate your child. Please understand that there may be situations where we can not reasonably ensure that we can meet their needs.
