Summer Nature Camps
Calyx Nature Camps
for ages 5-10
Calyx Nature Camps are on break this summer, 2021.
We will miss you all and hope to see you next summer!
Calyx Nature Camps combine good, old fashioned outdoor fun, with plenty of time for nature connection, exploration, creativity and discovery. Our mixed-age Nature Camps for children ages 5-10 are led by our experienced educators and mentors. We hope you will join us for yet another summer of exploration and play!
We are inspired and excited about the possibilities awaiting in our own backyards, and have all kinds of delightful summer fun surprises in store. Calyx will use its Zoom Room as a way to bring our campers together and connect with naturalist mentors, teaching artists and special guests, and as a tool to get our campers outside where they will explore, play, discover and connect with the natural world.
One week of Camp costs $195-$325 and is based on a sliding fee scale, but is being offered as a pay-what-you-can program this summer.*
*Calyx Nature Camp fees are based on a sliding fee scale of $195 - $325 per week. Although the real cost of one week of camp is $325, Calyx works to make its programs available below cost to ensure they are accessible to all families. In figuring out how much to pay, we ask you to consider what you can afford, what you would or do pay for a comparable camp, and how much Calyx programming is worth to you. We know that in some cases, your ability to pay will not match the worth that you ascribe to the experience. We understand. We ask you to pay what you can within that range. And, if you are able to pay more, please do as it helps ensure ongoing Calyx programming, and to ensure diversity within our programming. Please know that we will turn no child away due to the inability to pay.
We will create a container for our camp experience through rituals and a rhythm that is predictable and consistent, and that will help your camper navigate and self regulate through the day and week. Our goal is to spark curiosity, ignite creativity, and inspire the kind, gentle and just nature warrior in all of us.
