Camps for Children
Entering 1st and 2nd Grade

Join us for our the most popular Montshire camp, Outdoor Discovery, or try our Science Camp. Each year we include new themes and activities!

Outdoor Discovery Camp

Campers enjoy outdoor fun that weaves together stories, games, activities, water play, and reflective time in their “Magic Spot”. They emerge with new friendships, amazing discoveries, and a deeper respect for nature and the outdoors. From our special camp site in the woods we explore, play, and learn all day long!

This program is offered at two convenient sites—Norwich, Vermont, and Hanover, New Hampshire. Choose one, two, or three of the sessions of this popular nature program.

Fee: Members: $295, non-members: $335

You are invited to enroll in up to three weeks of Outdoor Discovery Camp, one week of each topic.

  • Nature’s Toolbox: Discover how animals and plants grow as we examine their lifecycles and special adaptations.
  • Who Lives Here?: Explore the habitats and solve the mysteries of local plants and animals.
