Youth Program

Summer Day Camp - Nature Lovers

A fun-filled Day Camp for campers ages 8-12

Campers ages 8-12 can join us for an exciting week filled with hands-on activities and outdoor exploring that focus on learning all about nature in the Pacific Northwest!  We will spend the week exploring beaches, identifying plants, foraging for delicious foods, and learn how to protect the land around us as we create lasting art from invasive plants.  After camp, your child will walk away ready to appreciate and engage in nature!

Here are a few things to keep in mind:

  • Camp runs from 9:00am-4:00pm each day
  • Day Camp is for kids age 8-12. Kids may be divided into different counselor groups based on age.

Where does Camp start and end each day?

Camp runs Monday - Friday: Drop-off and pick-up at Olympia Friends Meeting House (3201 Boston Harbor Rd NE, Olympia, WA 98506). 

What does a typical day at Camp look like?

Each day is filled with fun curriculum to teach your camper how to be safe while exploring outdoors. On the first day of camp, we spend the morning getting to know our campers, playing games, jumping into learning about what makes the PNW so unique! Throughout the week your camper will explore a variety of local parks  while learning about their surroundings. On field trip days, campers will ride in our van to local areas. A more detailed schedule will be sent to registered families prior to camp.
