Stephanie Punnett, Program Director
Summer Nature Camp registration is now open at NJ Audubon’s Scherman Hoffman Wildlife Sanctuary for a range of exciting and educational camps that help connect children to nature. Camps are available for children aged four through 15 (or entering 10th grade in the Fall) and begin June 25, running through August 31, 2018.
Early Bird discounts are available until midnight on April 15, 2018.
NJ Audubon has a long history of connecting children of all ages with nature by exploring, discovering and enjoying our local forests, fields, streams, ponds and beaches, across three venues at Bernardsville, Blairstown and Barnegat Bay. NJ Audubon staff are committed to guiding children in outdoor adventures that foster a deeper connection with the natural world and that are engaging, fun, and support STEM learning through hands-on experiences. The NJA summer education team is highly trained and provide additional educators and counselors to maintain optimal teacher child ratios.
Last year 1,000 children attended New Jersey Audubon’s summer camps state-wide, experiencing nature in countless fun-filled ways. When surveyed about their child’s camp experiences, 96% of parents said their child was “more aware of nature”, 94% said their child was “more respectful of living things in nature”, and 97% said they had seen their child take “positive action toward the environment.”
