Nature Day Camp

We believe in the power of outdoor experiences to enrich young lives. Harpswell Heritage Land Trust’s Nature Day Camp combines games, creativity, scientific inquiry, and hands-on exploration to create a memorable week of fun and discovery.

Our days include a variety of activities intended to appeal to a wide range of interests including unstructured exploration, storytelling, music, yoga, scientific inquiry, sensory awareness, arts and crafts, and running games. We balance active and quiet and give campers the opportunity to connect with each other and with the natural world. We create opportunities for growth, connection, and learning in a safe and supportive environment.

We are incredibly fortunate to have Harpswell as our learning laboratory. Harpswell is a coastal town with fascinating habitats to explore. Campers explore tide pools, salt marshes, rocky shoreline, forest, and field. If your child loves exploring Maine’s beautiful coastline, this camp is for you!

2022 will be our 24th year of offering Nature Day Camp in Harpswell!

Nature Day Camp is supported by camp fees, Holbrook Community Foundation, and Harpswell Heritage Land Trust members.
