Nature Adventure Camp

Summer Camp Adventures Await!

In 2022, Ijams is offering four two-week summer sessions of Nature Adventure Camp for ages 8-12!

Looking for a one-week camp for ages 6-9?
Learn More about Nature Discovery Camp.

Nature Adventure Camp is a two-week camp for age 8-12 that allows them to build deeper relationships with their peers, camp educators, and the land around them.


This program allows children to participate in adventures and activities that build on previous experiences and support more robust development of skills in program areas such as canoeing, fire building, species identification, caving and leadership without starting over every week. PLUS: Campers in these sessions get to explore Navitat Knoxville's tree-based adventure park TWICE during this two-week camp!

All Ijams camp programs are designed and led by environmental educators and naturalists who bring their knowledge of science, nature, and animals on each exciting adventure.

Nature Adventure Camps for ages 8-12 are offered June 6, 2022, through July 29, 2022. After Care is available for an additional fee.


  • Session 1 June 6-17

  • Session 2 June 20-July 1

  • Session 3 July 5-15 (No camp on July 4)

  • Session 4 July 18-29


The fee for each two-week session is $600 for non-members and $570 for Ijams members. Session 3 is a nine-day program due to the July 4 holiday. The cost for this program is $540 for non-members and $513 for members.


Ijams members (Family level or higher) receive a 5% discount on all camp sessions and session options (including After Care). Please note that there is a $25 fee to switch weeks after registration is completed.
