About Nature Camp

We are looking forward to another wonderful summer filled with laughter, learning, and adventure. Registration for Nature Camp is now open. Click here to Download the Themes and Dates for 2018.

Northwest Park Summer Nature Camp gives young people the tools to enjoy a great summer of fun, friendship in a positive, safe environment with cool themes for all ages Pre K- to 8. Your camper will experience indoor and outdoor games, campouts and field trips for grades 4 to 8, with activities that will help them grow. Camping teaches self-reliance, a love for nature, and the development of attitudes and practices that build character and leadership—all amidst the traditional fun of camp.
