Ijams Nature Center

Ijams Nature Center Summer Camps

Location: 2915 Island Home Avenue 

Ijams Nature Adventure Camps are anything but your ordinary, run-of-the-mill day camps. At Ijams, we make every effort to ensure that campers end each day worn out, dirty, and excited to do it all over again the next day. And, we take pride in the fact that campers often experience the magic and activities typically associated with overnight camps, but at half the cost and with all of the conveniences of a local daycare. Alongside traditional activities like canoeing, camp-wide competitions, and silly songs, our campers experience the transformative and bonding power of outdoor adventures and nature exploration, igniting a lifelong passion for learning and being active.

During Ijams Preschool Summer Camps (ages 3-5), campers hit the trail early in their lives to develop basic skills, knowledge, and comfort in the outdoors. Ijams Nature Adventure Camps (ages 6-12) expand on these foundations over time through increasingly challenging content and activities, which now include high-ropes course experiences with Navitat Canopy Adventures and caving during select sessions. During campers’ journeys through Ijams’ camps, our experienced staff members support and inspire campers to push their comfort zones, build new friendships, and foster resilient spirits.

Getting every girl outdoors to learn new skills and make new friends

There’s more to Girl Scouts than cookies! Since 1912, Girl Scouts has been a driving force in introducing girls to the outdoors, building courage, confidence, and character along the way.

No matter their age nor how long they stay, camp gives girls the opportunity to grow, explore, and have fun. Girls can sign up for Themed Weeks that cater to their interests, or they can join a Camp Discovery program and get the traditional camp experience. There are also three-day Camper Sampler programs for girls who want to spend a shorter time at camp.

At Girl Scout resident camp, work towards earning badges, all while building independence and resiliency. Camp might look a little different in 2021 but we’re determined to ensure that our Girl Scouts have access to exciting, fun, and safe outdoor experiences which they need now more than ever! Prices range from $325-$600 for Girl Scout members; for $425-$700 for non-members.

Week 1 | June 1-4 | Shipwreck Lagoon (4-day week)
Errrr matey – Legend tells us that many years ago there was a great pirate ship that sank beneath the waters of the Tate’s Lagoon. As the fog lifts and steam rises from the murky sea, join us as we voyage in search of the lost ship . . . and the lost treasure that was on board. “X” marks the spot, but keep your eyes peeled as pirates skulk around the bend. Shiver me timbers!

Week 2 | June 7-11 | Aliens and Earthworms
Transporter 3 is now ready and all campers should take their stations and prepare for time warp to the gamma quadrant as we leap into a brand new weekly theme that features everything from science fiction to science experiments. Join the exploration crew as we travel into the world of the wild, weird and wacky. Pay tribute to some of the galaxies most favorite aliens and examine some of those scientific mysteries that make you stop and go, “huh.”

Week 3 | June 14-18 | Harry Potter and the Tatestastic Beasts
Calling all young wizards! The Tatestastic Beasts are on the loose and creating havoc all around camp. Join in the search for these mystical creatures and enjoy dress up days, Tateswarts crafts, and Quidditch. We’ll meet you at Platform 9 3/4 for an early departure. Don’t forget your wand and broom!

Week 4 | June 21-25 | The Great Escape
Taboo has been captured, and it’s up to you to help him create the greatest escape in Tate’s Day Camp history! Solve riddles and puzzles all throughout the week to formulate a plan to rescue our furry squirrel friend. Visit key locations around camp, and search for clues that may lead to Taboo’s freedom. Just beware! If you take the wrong step, you just might need to escape yourself!

Week 5 | June 28-July 2 | Child vs. Wild: Olympic Edition
We’re taking one of our most popular themes, Child vs. Wild, and putting an Olympic twist on it. Countries will unite for a week of all new competitions. Some challenges involve skill and energy while others involve thought and problem solving. Team unity and participation are essential. All eyes are focused on Friday’s closing ceremony where one team will take the gold!

Week 6 | July 5-9 | Halloween in July
Boooo! Break out the costumes, fluff up the scarecrow and gather at the amphitheater for some ghost stories because we’re waving our magic wands and celebrating Halloween early this year. Enjoy a fun week that includes a costume day and trick or treating. We’ll leave the porch light on for you.

Week 7 | July 12-16 | Wipeout
Turn on the hoses, put mud in the pit, and get ready to slip, trip, and fall in our first ever week of Tate’s Wipeout! We will have obstacle courses, slippery games, and challenges galore. It’s all in the name of fun where balance and gravity compete for control. Compete with your friends on an even playing field as you slip and slide around different courses to achieve the quickest time. Surf’s up, as you Wipeout!

Week 8 | July 19-23 | Carnival
Fire up the cotton candy machine and crank up the music and games because it’s time for the Tate’s Carnival 2021. Step right up and try your hand at the ring toss, stop by the face painting stand, make a pitch at the dunking booth or maybe win a special prize at one of the game stations. These are just a few of the many activities awaiting you at the Tate’s Carnival.

Week 9 | July 26-30 | Dodgeballs and Dragons
Go forth with your party of adventurers and battle the beasts of the darkest caves in Tateshire! Take arms and prepare your spells as you seek victory and glory in this summer’s Dodgeball War!
