Summer Nature Day Camp

Children who like nature love camp at the Tenafly Nature Center! Our professional Environmental Educators lead outdoor activities that are fun and educational: hiking along TNC’s trails, engaging in nature-based crafts, games and activities. Campers will learn to identify native species and understand ecosystems and habitats throughout our nearly 400 acre forest. Sharp-eyed campers may spot native animals that live in TNC’s preserve; from snapping turtles to white-tailed deer, wild turkeys, bullfrogs, and red-tailed hawks.

We welcome kids of all abilities and will work closely with you to make sure your child has a wonderful summer camp experience!

The Camp Season will be entirely outdoors. At this time, facemasks are required.
Please see our Covid & Camp webpage for more information
