Summer Explorers Camp

We know kids love Tussey Mountain! Now they have the chance to spend even MORE time on the mountain with our 2022 Summer Explorers Camp. This is the first summer that we are offering a fun outdoor learning experience for kids going into 1st grade – 6th grade. You may register for as many weeks as you would like. Each week will be jam-packed with fun activities, and your child can enjoy all of the nature and wildlife we have at beautiful Tussey Mountain!

Each day there will be something new and exciting to choose from. We are a kid choice supported camp! Each morning, our campers will get a list of different learning experiences to choose from, and then each afternoon will be filled with fun outdoor games like kickball, frisbee, soccer, scavenger hunt, capture the flag, wacky science experiments, and more!

Some of the activities that may be offered each morning include:

  • Identifying Invasive Species

  • Animal Tracks 
  • Catching Critters 
  • Leave No Trace Hike

Campers will be required to dress appropriately for the weather, with sturdy sneakers for outdoor activities, and water shoes if we’ll be exploring near water. Children must bring a water bottle, and any sunscreen or bug spray that you would like them to use on their own (instructors cannot apply sunscreen, bug spray, etc.) Children must pack their own lunch and snacks each day. You may be instructed to avoid packing any products that contain peanuts if we have participants with allergies.
