What Do We Do at Nature Rangers Camps?

We engage the whole child through gentle, interactive learning and child-led exploration. Kids awaken curiosity with observation, discussion and discovery, and learn about the natural world though, games, wildcrafting, art and play. We also hold space to invent games, climb trees, build forts, and safely explore our beautiful surroundings.

Children have the opportunity to become Nature Specialists by completing tasks and earning badges! 

5th-8th graders may join us as Counselors in Training (CIT) where they will build valuable and transferrable leadership skills.

Our Typical Daily Rhythm

We meet each week in a new location to explore different terrain, habitats, and ecological systems. Drop-off and pick-up will typically be in the same location. If you participate in Extended Hours Care, transportation will be provided to the Leadbetter/West Beach area (summer only).
