Summer Camp 2015

Why are experiences in the outdoors important?

88% of children report using a computer every day, while only 11% of children report visiting a local park or natural area every day.
90% of children who spent time outside said being in nature and taking part in outdoor activities helped relieve stress.
Spending time in nature has proved to reduce behavioral problems and improve moods, attention spans, and short-term memory.

For these reasons (and about a thousand more!) you should check out our summer camps!  Now accepting reservations for summer 2015!
