Nature Camps (NC) is an Outdoor Adventure and Environmental Education organization, that is committed to the use of experiential education programs to promote individual growth, and sensory awareness for both children and parents. NC is a family based program.
**NOTE: The Teen Adventure Program has changed from 2 four week sessions to 4 two week sessions -- notably adding Biking on the C & P Canal Towpath (TA Session IV), keeping hiking the AT and working at Spoutwood Farm as the other options. ** Early enrollment is encouraged as group size is eight teens with two TA Trip Leaders.
Teens may sign up for two full TA sessions, with the option of being at Day Camp if they want to attend more than four weeks, in which case they would continue to choose activities in their role as a CIT (Counselor-in-Training).
Nature Camp's Teen Adventure is an innovative and physically challenging two week experience. Focus is upon affirming individual strengths, engendering compassionate behavior, and bringing forth environmental stewardship. Teens feel the power of tradition and community during their engaging time with their peers. TA enrollment is limited to eight teens per two-week session with two TA Leaders. (Encourage early enrollment)
