Nature Safari Summer Camp

Nature Safari Summer Day Camps offer the perfect retreat for kids! Do you have kids aged 6-12 who love nature, animals, and the outdoors? For an unforgettable day camp experience, the Ann & Sandy Cross Conservation Area (ASCCA) is the place to send them in the summer.

Investigative hikes, hands-on activities and eco-crafts fill each summer week with unforgettable experiences in a beautiful natural landscape. The foothills provide an excellent opportunity for creativity, learning and camaraderie. Guest naturalists also add their own life experiences to the fun.

Leadership Safari Day Camp

This camp will engage campers in further exploration, outdoor/leadership skills, a stewardship project and the usual fun of nature-based games. Campers will be given the opportunity to volunteer for one or more days during our other camp weeks after attending the camp if they pass an assessment.
