Riveredge Nature Center Summer Camps

Newburg, Washington County
 See Camp Location
Riveredge Nature Journeys are designed to connect people (preschool through adult) with the natural world in a deep and meaningful way, building on skills and awareness from one camp to the next. Campers will participate in hands-on explorations as they ask questions about the mysteries of the natural world, uncover evidence at their fingertips, and draw conclusions based on personal experiences. These camps maintain a low camper to counselor ratio and are created and taught by a staff of highly trained Environmental Educators. Our goal is to give campers tools and strategies they can use to continue to explore the wonder of our natural world throughout their lives.
