New Canaan Nature Center Summer Camp Treat your child age 2-15 to a unique and action-packed summer experience! Our counselors and naturalists create age-appropriate opportunities to explore, investigate, and discover the natural world while building friendships through fun, creative activities. Each session revolves around a different theme that's brought to life through games, experiments, projects, and activities. Kids become immersed in a wonderland of ponds, meadows, marsh and forest throughout our 40-acre sanctuary. Budding scientists uncover the mysteries of the natural world while adventure-seekers learn survival skills and feel the exhilaration of outdoor recreation.

The only place to take summer in is...outside! Our action-packed Summer Camp (ages 3-7) emphasizes fun, hands-on experiences that give your child an opportunity to simply "be a kid," while exploring nature's marvels and making friends. Adventure Camp (ages 8-15) offers older campers engaging and unique outdoor activities, paddling and hiking, team challenges and experiments, plus campfire dinners, off-site field visits, and overnight camping excursions. Weekly camp-wide themes inspire adventure at age-appropriate levels amidst our 40 acres of ponds, fields, and forest. Camp runs June 6-Aug. 19. Visit our website for information and registration.
