Nature Camp

Nature Camp

Ready for a classic sleepaway camp experience without the sleepaway?

Nature Camp is geared for kids interested in exploring local flora and fauna and gaining an appreciation for the environment. Each camp session is filled with outdoor activities, adventure, camp songs, and field trips. Nature Camp has a reputation for homegrown enrichment and challenges campers to be themselves in one of the most beautiful settings in the Santa Barbara foothills.

On the last Thursday of each camp session there is a Family Night followed by an optional Sleepover at Skofield Park. Family and friends are invited to participate in an evening of camp songs, skits, and fun camp entertainment. Following Family Night, campers, junior counselors, and staff will enjoy a sleepover under the stars. Please note: camp ends at 9:00 a.m. the Friday after the Sleepover.

Extended Care is available for this camp at Casa Las Palmas. For more information, call (805) 564-5495.

Pick-up and drop-off for camp sessions 1, 2, 3, and 5 will be at MacKenzie Park near Las Positas Road and McCaw Avenue. Pick-up and drop-off during session 4 will be moved to La Mesa Park due to Fiesta. No camp July 4 or 5.

Please note: Session 2 of Nature Camp (ending July 3) will not have a sleepover.

Don’t forget Nature Camp also has a Junior Counselors program, too!
