Mini Camps

Children ages 1-5 with an adult buddy

Mini Camps are held year-round. In camp, children ages 1-5 explore nature with an adult buddy through crafts, activities, songs, and stories. Each camp typically includes a snack and 15-20 minutes of outdoor activities.

These camps provide a great stepping stone for little ones to spend time with other children and have the comfort of a loved one nearby.

Mini Camps are $6/child. All camps meet at Rock Springs Nature Center. Each camp accepts a minimum of 4 participants and a maximum of 12.
