During camps at Ijams, children experience the joy and wonder of nature through outdoor adventures, all while making friends, singing songs, and playing games! Through exploration and play, campers learn about the connections between land, plants, animals, and humans that nurture healthy communities.

NEW IN 2023: Ijams is offering FIVE unique programs for campers ages 3-15! Camps will have separate drop-off and pick-up locations, smaller camper-to-staff ratios, and experiences tailored to each age group and camper needs. Ijams also is launching new two-week sessions for campers ages 13-15!

Preschool Half-Day Summer Camp-focuses on child-led, age-appropriate experiential learning for children ages 3-5. Most of the day is spent outdoors, exploring nature and making a strong connection with the environment. Children learn through play, discovery, and inquiry. Not only do children develop a solid foundation for lifelong learning but also cultivate a love of nature that is the basis for a conservation ethic later in life.

NEW Preschool Full Day Summer Camp-Looking for an all-day camp experience for your preschooler? Preschool Summer Camp – Full Day gives kids ages 4-5 more time for child-led, age-appropriate, experiential learning.

Nature Discovery Camp-Discover the natural world at Ijams! Campers explore creeks, scramble across rocks, hike trails, build shelters, play games, create arts and crafts, and much more! Discovery Camp sessions are split between sessions for ages 6-7 and sessions for ages 8-9. Campers ages 8-9 are eligible to participate in Navitat, which is reflected in the increased cost for those sessions.

Nature Adventure Camp-This two-week camp allows children to participate in adventures and activities that build on previous experiences and supports more robust development of skills in 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 TWICE during each session!

NEW Leadership Quest-In this immersive, two-week program, campers build naturalist skills, develop leadership ability, and apply interpretive methods to guide other campers in nature-based discoveries. An example of this might be learning advanced paddling skills and then co-teaching basic skills to younger campers. Leadership Quest campers also will push their boundaries while caving, test their spirit of adventure with Navitat TWICE, learn to boulder, and go behind the scenes to help care for Ijams animal ambassadors. It’s perfect for teens who are ready to experience life as an Ijams naturalist!
