June Mini-Camp in Nature

Join us for fun and learning in the sun at our outdoor STEM program.

Your child will spend the week being a nature detective, learning about the plant and animal wildlife around Sheldrake’s 60 acres.

Time will be spent exploring the natural world, listening to nature stories, crafting, and playing games.

For children ages 3-6

Cancellation Policy: Camp proceeds in inclement weather unless hazardous conditions occur. In the event that Sheldrake should cancel a program (or a portion thereof), either a makeup will be scheduled or a refund will be issued (proportionate to the canceled event). Participant cancellation requires a minimum of one week’s notice (in writing to scheduling@sheldrakecenter.org; be sure to obtain written confirmation of receipt), and a 25% cancellation fee will be charged. No refunds will be issued under other circumstances.


A Typical Day at Camp

Camp sessions will be held primarily outside, rain or shine, so students should dress accordingly.

During a typical camp day, children go on an outdoor discovery walk to explore the 60-acre conservancy property, engage in hands-on ecology lessons, and search for signs of animals.

Campers will enjoy a nature-themed story time, do a nature craft, and have a snack.
