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.
