Summer Day Camps & Nature Weeks

About Our Camps

Our camps value small group experiences, hands-on exploratory learning, and child-led learning.

Experienced environmental educators help campers discover how to interact positively with the world around them.

The outdoor experience at Blue Heron starts early, with our Little Blue Herons nature weeks for children ages 2 -4. This program focuses on sensory exploration and positive experiences in the natural world.

For older campers, we offer Great Blue Herons for children ages 4-9 with exciting and different themes each week that encourage active exploration in nature. For children ages 5 - 12 who are interested in art, we offer our popular Afternoon Paint Box Mystery Art Camp.

Our oldest campers join our Trailblazers group for children ages 8 - 13. This camp challenges children to expand their outdoor skills and scientific abilities with expeditions to our 10-acre Emma Wetlands property and involvement in Citizen Science and conservation projects at the Preserve.
