Our Summer Nature Camp is an opportunity for kids entering kindergarten through grade 10 to connect with and explore the natural world. Program leaders facilitate hands-on activities that foster kids’ innate curiosity about nature and wildlife. Campers and parents alike rave about camp, making it one of the Parks Division’s most popular offerings.
Leaders for the Summer Nature Camp are instructed in guiding children outdoors and are certified in First Aid and CPR. Group size is a maximum of 10-12 campers depending on session and location, with each leader being aided by an assistant or volunteer. Special canoeing instructors host the paddling clinics and canoe trips with our older campers.
Sessions are available at both Echo Hill and the Teetertown Nature Preserve. Echo Hill is located on Lilac Drive in Clinton Township, less than 15 minutes from both Clinton and Flemington. Teetertown is located on Pleasant Grove Road in Lebanon Township, about 15 minutes northwest of Clinton. Both sites offer wonderful and diverse habitats for the campers to explore, including stream, pond, field, and forest areas.
Note that camp is held Monday through Friday—no weekends. Camp will not be held on Thursday, July 4th, Independence Day. These sessions are pro-rated.
One- or two-week sessions depending on age.
