All camps are taught by experienced environmental educators, maintaining a child-teacher ratio of 8-1.

We offer a Teen Naturalist Training (TNT) program, similar to a CIT program, for teens entering 9th or 10th grade.

From Pre-K through high school we have an outdoor adventure that is right for your child, whether it is looking for salamanders under a log, hiking the AT, cooking food harvested from our Children's Garden, or visiting the National Zoo.
