Nature Discovery Camp

Summer Camp Discovery Awaits!

Exciting explorations, awesome adventures, and delightful discoveries await kids ages 6-9 at Ijams Nature Discovery Camp! Ijams specializes in curating summer camps for curious kids. Whether your child is a budding ecologist, future veterinarian, or an outdoor explorer, Ijams camps offer a unique summer experience. 

Nature Discovery Camp is the new name of Ijams’ flagship weeklong summer camp program for kids ages 6-9. Campers will explore creeks, hike trails, build shelters, play games, and create arts and crafts, all while developing skills as a team. Groups will be immersed in nature all day and learn about the many unique species and ecosystems that are found at Ijams.
