Summer Camp 2018
Join us for Summer Camp! Spend an exciting week learning about nature in an informative and playful setting, discovering the mysteries of the animals, plants, and land of the Highlands. We use the same camp curriculum for all sessions of a given age group, so please only register each child for one week of camp. Summer Sprouts camps run 8:00 am – 12:00 pm. All other age groups run 8:00 am -4:00 pm.
Camps are offered for PreK-8th graders.

Jr. Naturalists (Grades 7-8, Ages 12-13)
There’s a reason we call this group the Junior Naturalists!
