The Barn Nature Center Summer Camps offer youth the chance to get up close and personal with our over 80 rescued and re-homed animal residents. During our week-long programs, campers will embark on adventures filled with animals, science, and many other fun activities! Campers have the opportunity to become animal caretakers and will learn what it takes to keep our animal friends happy and healthy.
We offer two different camp programs. Our Nature Explorers Camp is for children 6 years and up, while our Wildlife Adventures Camp is for kids 9 years and up! Nature Explorers Camp features a variety of fun and educational activities, such as a veterinary assistant day, learning about enrichment, an offsite stream study and nature hike, rock climbing and more! Wildlife Adventures Camp allows campers to dive deeper into their adventurous sides with rock climbing, our indoor high ropes course, rappelling station, an offsite stream study, and an off-site hiking and kayaking excursion!
