Spring Break Camp

It's always a bit tricky to plan for spring break. This school holiday typically falls during spring, but the weather sometimes feels like winter! Ijams has the perfect solution for kids ages 7-12!

2022 Spring Break Camp

Give your camper age 7-12 the ultimate spring break experience March 14-18, 2022, and open their eyes to the beauty and wonder of the changing seasons! Spring break campers will search for early signs of spring and celebrate the end of winter by learning basic winter survival skills and winter ecology, with an emphasis on how plants, birds, and other animals use their unique adaptations and keen survival skills to endure the harsh conditions of winter months.

As a bonus in 2022, campers will enjoy a three-hour session at Navitat, a tree-based adventure park, experiencing a variety of challenge elements in the canopy of Ijams’ forest. And, of course, Spring Break campers also will engage in many of the same activities* from Ijams Nature Adventure Camps, including:

  • Hiking

  • Navitat high ropes course with ziplines

  • Rock scrambling/bouldering

  • Canoeing

  • Fishing

  • Pond/creek exploration

  • Insect collection

  • Birdwatching (with an emphasis on spring migration)

  • Fire making & shelter building

  • Live animal presentations

  • Arts and crafts

  • And more!

* NOTE: Although Ijams staff try to include all of the above activities in camp, there will be some variation based on weather and other factors.

AGE AND ELIGIBILITY REQUIREMENTS

Ijams Spring Break Camp is open to children ages 7-12 years old. While Ijams makes every attempt to group campers of similar ages, staff cannot guarantee that this will be the case. Depending on enrollment, the staff may choose to mix age groups in order to build community and encourage mentorship among campers. Camper groupings are always at the discretion of Ijams staff. If you have any concerns or questions about your child's ability to thrive in Ijams camp programs, please contact Youth Programs Manager Lindsay Whitaker at lwhitaker@ijams.org or +1865-577-4717, ext. 114.​
