NATURE CAMP


Attention all nature enthusiasts!

If you love learning about nature, things in nature, and being surrounded by nature, the Nature Camp program is for YOU! We have a lot of exciting things planned as we start the new Nature Camp programs in 2017.


How the nature camp program works 

You may sign up to attend any or all of the eight programs we will be offering in the summer of 2017. This year, we are scheduling each Wednesday in June and July with two different sessions according to the age group.  The 9:00am-12:00pm will be our younger campers 7-10 years of age and 1:00pm-4:00pm the  11-14 years of age.  Specific dates may be found by clicking here.  If you are a Junior Naturalist each program that you attend, you will receive one credit toward your Junior Naturalist status. After you receive twelve credits, you are officially considered a Junior Naturalist.


Not only will there be a summer Nature Camp but also Fall and Winter Break and in 2018 we will have Spring Break Nature Camp for more information email JFNCdirector2017@gmail.com .  Camp size is limited to 20 campers per time, so be sure to schedule before camp fills up.


Nature Camp programs are recommended for ages 7-14, however, children younger than 7 and older than 14 are welcome to attend and we will do our best to be sure they are able to participate. 


Is there a cost to attend?

All Nature Camp programs are offered to the community at no charge. However,it is requested a $5.00 donation be given per child per class session to be able to continue Joe's wish of offering  nature-related programs to our community.


Sign me up!

We recommend registration for each Nature Camp program so that we may prepare for the number of children that will be attending. Some programs may include crafts or activities that require preparation of materials and we want to be sure everyone can participate. You may register by filling out the form to the right or by contacting Deborah at (270) 344-0596 or JFNCdirector2017@gmail.com. Some crafts or projects could include items such as peanut butter, so if you have any allergy concerns, please specify when registering.
