Summer Day Camps
Explore the Outdoors with Us!
Woodbury County Conservation Board has been hosting summer day camps at the Dorothy Pecaut Nature Center since 1997. They are designed to encourage hands-on learning through outdoor explorations, hiking, activities, games, crafts and more. The programs are led by full-time professional environmental educators and seasonal naturalist staff. Our camp leaders thrive on the joys and challenges of teaching about the amazing facets of nature through hands-on creative and fun activities.
The number of campers is limited to ensure a fun learning experience with a ratio of between 14-20 campers to 2 staff depending on the campers ages.
