NJ's Premier Nature Camps
Fiddlehead Day Camp is offered weekly during the summer to children ages 6–11 to provide an enriching experience unlike any other. Every day your children will choose from new activities to broaden their world and nurture their connections to nature, history, farm life and ecology. Experienced staff will guide your children in structured groups of no more than ten.
The Young Stewards Summer Camp focuses on local agriculture, ecology, and community. Guided by experienced and well-qualified staff members, campers will visit the Pine Barrens, explore the New Jersey coastline, learn the abundance of resources in our seasonal forests, and paddle local waterways.
The program is available for ages 6–14 from 8:30am to 4pm with extended care available from 7:30–8:30am before and 4:00–5:30pm after camp. Registration is by day, instead of weekly like summer camp. The daily schedule of farm animal feeding, exploration, snack, activities and journal time follows the unique Fernbrook summer camp schedule but with seasonal fall activities that cannot always be incorporated in summer.
The program is available for ages 6–14 from 8:30am to 4pm with extended care available from 7:30–8:30am before and 4:00–5:30pm after camp. We follow animal tracks in the snow (or mud), make winter bird feeders, build snow forts, learn about winter wilderness survival, warm up near the fireplace, tap sugar maple trees to make syrup, play camouflage and other outdoor games, visit the farm animals and more!
The program is available for ages 6–14 from 8:30am to 4pm. Children may attend any number of days. Optional extended care is available from 7:30–8:30am and 4:00–5:30pm. The daily schedule of feeding the animals, exploration, snack, activities and journal time mirrors our unique summer camp schedule.
