Earthplace Summer Camp, Westport

in Traditional Camps

At Earthplace we use our 62-acre wildlife sanctuary as an outdoor classroom. On trail walks through the woods, meadow, stream, and pond, we often spot wildlife in their natural surroundings, including deer, turtles, hawks, wild turkeys and groundhogs. Every week animals from our indoor Animal Hall come to visit. Campers learn about many creatures and their habitats, with the themes changing every week. There are many opportunities to explore new aspects of nature through hands-on activities, group games, field trips, hikes and crafts. Once a session, children in grades 1 through 4 go on area field trips. Some weeks our 3rd & 4th, and 5th-7th graders go canoeing. On other weeks the 5th-7th graders also camp overnight at Earthplace. We hope to give your child a summer experience that encourages him or her to appreciate all that nature at Earthplace has to offer. Call 203-227-7253 x 107 before registering.
