Day Camps


Foster your child’s love and respect for nature at Hunt Hill! At Day Camps, youth ages 5-12 years-old have the opportunity to explore, learn about, and connect with the natural world.

Camp begins with a welcome circle followed by outdoor learning activities, nature games, crafts, hikes, swimming and a closing presentation that the campers put on for their families. Campers are split up into small, age-appropriate groups

Each day of camp has a different theme and the daily activities follow that day’s theme. Register your child for as many camps as you would like, from just one day to all of them! See below for our dates and themes.
