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. 

5th-9th graders may join us as Counselors in Training where they will build valuable and transferrable leadership skills.

  • 9:00am: Meet at weekly location
  • 9:15-10am: Free play & open activities
