Summer Residential Camps

Overnight camps for upper Elementary through middle School students at River Bend Farm

Our overnight ecology camps will embrace a unique spin on the traditional, tried-and-true summer camp experience. Combined with camp favorites like arts and crafts, music and theatre, campfire and songs, campers will be immersed in environmental exploration, learning through hands-on activities and following their curiosity to uncover a deep-rooted eagerness to connect with nature.

The Ecology School inspired me to eat healthier, overcome my fear of going outside after dark, and to try new things. Thanks to the helpful educators and new friends. I continue to do all of these things and more at home and at school.
