Each of our weekly camp sessions features a different theme, which is integrated into the activities and programs for the week, taking full advantage of the SM&NC's unique setting. Programs are led by an experienced SM&NC Environmental Educator or Preschool Teacher to provide exciting and engaging interactive experiences both in the classroom and in the natural world.

Please ensure that you are registering your child for the correct age/grade camps. Registrations for children outside the listed age/grade of camps will be cancelled and refunded. Parents may not register children not in their household/membership unless in cases of temporary guardianship. Camper information and medical forms must be received by SM&NC a minimum of one week before your child’s start date of camp. Campers will not be allowed to attend camp without completed forms and refunds or credits will not be issued should forms not be complete.

Registration for Summer 2023 will open in February 2023.
Please note that starting in 2023, camp programs are for MEMBERS only.
