Year after year, DPNC is voted the area’s best summer nature camp, and with good reason!  Our campers spend their days hiking, exploring and learning about our animals, woods, meadows, streams and local habitats. We are passionate about sharing outdoor fun, adventure, games, new skills, confidence building, education and natural history knowledge. A strong environmental ethic develops in children who learn to love being outdoors. Nature camp builds the foundation for a lifetime of love and respect for the environment. Plus, it’s fun!

Our summer day camps for boys and girls ages 3 to 15 support the DPNC mission: to inspire an understanding of the natural world and ourselves as a part of it – past, present and future. Camp slots do sell out quickly, to ensure you reserve the week and program of your choice you may wish to become a DPNC member: members get discounts on camp tuition and get first pick of programs.
