Spending time in nature plays a vital role in many areas of a child’s health and development. Register for a Heard Nature Camp and give your child the gift of a connection to nature.
Camp Kestrel and Camp Bullfrog are available for campers ages 5 through 12. Campers are invited to experience one or both camps for a variety of age-appropriate lessons and activities (each camp has a different theme). Campers will investigate the wonders of nature on daily nature hikes on our 289-acre sanctuary, get up close and personal with our education animals, and investigate a variety of nature-themed topics every day.
In Nature Art Camp, young artists will follow in the footsteps of great artists such as Audubon and Monet with unique opportunities to create art inspired by nature and live animals. Each day, a different medium will be explored. Nature Art Camps are offered for kids ages 6 through 16. No experience is required and all art supplies are included.
Keeper Camps give kids ages 10 through 15 the opportunity to experience a behind-the-scenes, hands-on adventure with our education and exhibit animals. These campers will also get to learn about our animal ambassadors and what it takes to properly care for them.
Mini camps are also available for campers interested in spending a little extra time in nature.
