Rhode Island children can make the most of their school vacation time with nature-based Vacation Camps at Norman Bird Sanctuary’s 325-acre outdoor classroom.
During public school vacation weeks, nature-themed day camp programs will engage children in grades K-6 for fun-filled, hands-on nature exploration, animal encounters, and outdoor discovery.
A popular one-day December Mini Camp welcomes children on Saturday, December 21st. Then families can choose from one to five days of weekday Camp during the week of February 17th. A five-day vacation day camp follows during the week of April 15th.
In each of the Camp programs campers participate in age-appropriate and innovative camps that offer a unique blend of hands-on learning, games, animal encounters, and team building. Camp groups explore Norman Bird Sanctuary’s trails and diverse habitats, taught by enthusiastic and professional Teacher Naturalists.
Online registration is currently open for all three Vacation Camps.
Vacation Camp registration fees are discounted for Norman Bird Sanctuary members, but membership is not required. Families that book the entire week of February Vacation Camp also receive a discount.
