Summer Day Camps in Charlottesville, VA

Voted the #1 Day Camp in Charlottesville!

Summer day camp VirginiaWe have been voted a favorite summer day camp for over 10 years! Your child will spend the week exploring the mountains, streams and wild places of Virginia. Campers work together in small groups learning about the natural world, plants, mammals, tracking, birds, wilderness survival, awareness and so much more. We do this with hands-on activities, games, adventures and fun challenges. Our instructors are “Nature Connection Mentors” and guide campers into experiences that nurture their connection to the earth and allow them to feel at home in the natural world.
