If you can walk you can stalk. If you can talk you can sing. If you can dream you can be anything you want to be.

Nature Explorers Summer Camps & Programs
Eight weeks of summer programming for children ages 4 – 15
Each week has a different theme and age group.
These programs are for the young person who enjoys the natural world. Our goal is to foster children’s love of nature in a fun, safe, and supportive environment. Campers spend most of each day outdoors, in small groups, exploring the forests, meadows and waters of our 60 acres. Non-competitive games, stories, art projects, music, free play and sledding or water-sliding at the end of the day add to the Nature Explorers Camp experience. Children return year after year, excited to visit special places such as Grandmother Tree, Turtle Rocks and Frog Pond. They also return knowing that there is much fun to be had! Campers investigate the lives of their wild neighbors, learn naturalist skills, explore wildlife habitats, develop sensory awareness skills, venture off-trail, and discover a sense of magic and wonder in the Great Outdoors!
BEEC is dedicated to making youth programs affordable and available to ALL children with Scholarship Funds. If you would like to contribute to this fund, please do so here. Thank you!
Here’s what families have to say about BEEC’s camp programs:
– My son has had such an incredible experience at camp this week – he’s never willingly shared so much about his day before and tells us he will be a naturalist when he gets older. Huge thanks to your team!
– I love that BEEC programs are creative, fun, lots of outdoor time, great staff & good vibes! After summer camp this year, my son said that he wants to do BEEC camp all year long! He had an awesome time.
– My son loves it. I was showered with stories all week and for the following days of his adventures at camp and all he had learned. It is, by far, his favorite of any camp he has ever attended.
