Summer Camp registration is closed, and our waitlists are all full. We are sorry that we cannot accommodate all children looking for a summer nature day camp experience with us this year. We know how important it is for children to get outside, to explore, and to play. We invite you to visit our Nature in Your Hands at Home web page where you’ll find activities and games that our environmental educators have designed especially for families looking for ways to stay connected to nature whether it’s at a park, a nature preserve, or right in their own backyards. Watch our website for other summer programs and we hope to see you out hiking at Baltimore Woods.
This is the core of our summer camp programming, week long day camp adventures that promote discovery, physical fitness, problem-solving skills, social interaction, and awareness through direct contact with the natural world. Campers will find crayfish in the streams, build forts on Peanut Hill, explore the wonders of the beaver pond, catch frogs at Phillips Pond, build a campfire, roast hot dogs, get up close and personal with the swamp, play classic Baltimore Woods camp games like Camouflage and Kick the Can, make new friends, learn about the trees and birds, and get connected to the natural world in real and meaningful ways.
Our camp counselors are experienced in working with children, including NYS certified teachers, who have an eye for safety and know how to have healthy fun outdoors. Counselors are all certified in CPR and carry walkie-talkies and first aid kits at all times. Our camp health director is on site during camp hours to support the counselors and oversee the health and safety of camp.
Camp runs daily from 9am-3pm, children sign up on a week-by week basis. Campers are encouraged to attend multiple sessions, as every week provides something new and unexpected.
