Delve Deeper into Nature
with Voyager Camps

Outdoor experiences for kids grades 5-8!
(Campers must be 10 years old)

Baltimore Woods is offering special themed camp sessions for experienced campers looking to try something new or delve deeper into natural history and science concepts.  Led by our experienced staff educators and other local experts, these camps promise to be packed with fun and discovery. Camps meet daily from 9am-3pm and each session is limited to 10 campers. 

Due to the high demand for our camps, we ask that families limit themselves to three sessions so that other children may enjoy our program, too. 

New for 2024 – All campers get a camp t-shirt! Check out the great design by our staff member and camp counselor, Anna Stunkel:

Wilderness Survival Skills

Ever wonder what you would do if you got lost in the woods? Wonder no longer – this week long adventure will cover all the bases: fire building, survival kits, shelter building, navigation, and other primitive skills.  The first rule of wilderness survival is to stay positive – you can survive. We’ll teach you how.

Due to popular demand, this program is being offered three times this summer! The content will be the same in all weeks, so please consider selecting just one of these sessions.


The camps will be led by skilled naturalists and local experts, all long-time camp counselors.
Sessions are themed, and campers can attend multiple sessions. Due to the high demand for our camps, we ask that families limit themselves to three sessions so that other children may enjoy our program, too.
Camp will begin daily at 9am and end at 3pm.

Multiple week ($15) and multiple child discounts ($5) are automatically applied when you register. Discounts apply beginning with the second child and/or the second week. Campers coming multiple weeks will get one camp shirt and a $15 registration discount for each additional week.
