Summer Camps

Hands-on nature camps for the Lehigh Valley and Carbon County, PA

Our summer may look a little different this year, but LGNC is pleased to introduce a new kind of educational summer camp that students and their families can enjoy safely from home!

Young Ecologists Summer Camp At Home!

June 23-26, 2020

LGNC has been running its popular Young Ecologists Summer Camp for 23 consecutive years. This year, we will be providing campers in grades 5-7 with camp kits! As always, the camp will provide an exciting overview of ecology!

Camp kits will include…

  • A list of daily camp activities that campers can enjoy on their own or with their families from home
  • Educational materials, such as binoculars, identification guides, specimens, and much more, that campers will keep to continue their discoveries!

Each day, campers will…

  • Investigate birds, plants, insects, and other living and nonliving things through interactive outdoor and indoor activities
  • Maintain a nature journal
  • Share their discoveries with Nature Center staff and other campers through an end-of-day virtual gathering!
