School Break Camps and Nature Weeks

School Break Camps and Nature Weeks at Blue Heron are the ideal opportunity for your child to experience the wonders of nature and stay active during school breaks.

Our programs focus on outdoor experiences and give children time to play and learn through individual and group exploration. Blue Heron instructors are expert naturalists who understand the value of providing children unstructured exploration time.

Great Blue Herons provides hands-on activities and outdoor exploration time for campers. We spend most of our time outside learning from nature. Children will learn to interact safely with nature; turning over rocks and logs, climbing downed trees, skipping rocks in our creek, and catching butterflies and insects in nets. Every day offers a new opportunity to discover the fascinating world of nature.  

There will be 2 BHNP Environmental Educators for every 14 children.
