Summer Ecology Camps provide exciting, outdoor nature experiences for young children. Through gardening, games, experiments, and observation campers enjoy an introduction to ecology and the natural world in these part-day camps. Select activities include bug hunts, nature hikes, tree and animal identification, an ocean touch tank, and more!

Exo-Explorers is for children ages 7 to 9 who are looking to explore the natural world, conduct experiments, and get up-close-and-personal with the plants, insects, and animals in their Maine backyards.

Little Sprouts is great for younger campers who love to be outdoors, discover the world around them, play outdoor games, and get creative.

Camps take place at Merryspring Nature Center at 30 Conway Road in Camden.
