OUTDOOR EXPLORERS
& LITTLE EXPLORERS CAMPS

 

FOR EXPLORERS BIG AND SMALL:
MAKING THE MOST OF SUMMERTIME in summit county

This summer, Summit Land Conservancy is hosting six week-long summer camps that will be jam-packed with outdoor adventure! If your child loves nature, this is the experience they’ve been looking for.

Campers will have a chance to experience a unique combination of structured outdoor recreation adventures and free “nature play” in local open spaces. This program focuses on teaching natural and cultural history on the open spaces that make Park City special. Children will actively engage in learning ecology, botany, biology, wildlife identification, local history, and other topics outside of the traditional classroom setting. They will also learn the importance of stewardship, and what it means to be a junior land conservator!
