Waterman EXPLORE 

Do you love to explore nature and discover its hidden wonders? Where does freshwater come from?

Do you know how the forest heals itself?

Discover how nature keeps itself going and what we can do to help this year at Waterman EXPLORE nature education camp!


Don’t miss your chance to learn about and explore nature while developing skills like:

·     Learn how water is recycled through forests and wetlands.

·     Explore a system of ponds and learn about their inhabitants.

·     Safely build a campfire (with adult supervision).

·     Examine what we can learn from indigenous cultures and beliefs.

Each week is dedicated to a specific age group so the adventure may be tailored to the children’s needs and abilities:​


Tuition is $200 per week and includes a Waterman EXPLORE t-shirt. Payment should be made in full with completed registration materials to secure your child’s spot.

* Programming will be delivered primarily outdoors so campers should be prepared with appropriate closed-toe shoes, sunscreen, insect repellant, and adequate snacks and water for the day. Campers will need to bring lunch every day.


Other helpful, but not required materials include a sketch pad, notebook, journal, water shoes, a cheap magnifying glass, or cheap binoculars. Participants will also be expected to comply with typical COVID-19 precautions and procedures such as limiting contact with other campers and practicing good hand hygiene.
