New for 2020!

Budding Naturalist Mini Camp

The Budding Naturalist Mini Camp is a new summer day camp for children in grades K-2 and their families! Over a series of 3-4 days, campers will learn about critters and their habitats while we discover what lives in LGNC’s forest, grassland, river, and pond ecosystems. The camp will meet at the Nature Center from 10:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. All children must be accompanied by an adult for this camp.

Details to be announced soon!


Young Ecologists Camp

The Young Ecologists Camp is a summer day camp for youth currently in grades 5-7 who are interested in nature and the outdoors. Campers will investigate a different area of ecology each day as we explore the Kittatinny Ridge and two state parks. Activities will include birding, a live animal program, hikes at LGNC and Hickory Run, macroinvertebrate surveys, a tour of Beltzville Dam, and more! Participants in this annual camp meet at the Osprey House at 8:30 a.m., travel by bus to various study sites, and return to the Lehigh Gap Nature Center by 3:30 p.m.

2020 details TBA!
