Why Baird Creek for Summer Camp 2023?

  • 18 diverse biological communities, years of teaching experience, sunshine, nature … need we say more?

  • Appreciation of nature learned through childhood experiences has lifelong value.  It helps produce well-rounded, educated kids who understand their environment and their impact on it.

  • Hands-on environmental exploration where kiddos ask questions about the natural world, uncover evidence at their fingertips and draw conclusions based on personal experience.

  • We survive on donations; it’s why we’re a nonprofit. That means we charge what we do so we can cover costs of putting together these amazing nature-based camps and have professional, caring, phenomenal teachers on our staff.  Any money we make goes back into trails, oak savanna restoration, forest preservation and more. You are not supporting us; you are supporting nature!
