Nature Discovery Summer Day Camps
Fontenelle Forest welcomes you to a summer of discovery and learning in a place where the quiet wild of nature offers an unparalleled opportunity for your child to learn. Nature Discovery Day Camps feature science based learning through play taught by a combination of Fontenelle Forest's year-round professional educators and summer staff who are college students or graduates. All have experience working with children in an outdoor setting, are enthusiastic, energetic, love children and have passed background checks. Camp staff complete a one-week training session and have current CPR and First Aid certifications. Our staff is committed to providing your child with high quality, positive experiences. Whether your child canoes the Great Marsh, takes a low ropes course challenge or builds a kite, we're sure that they will bring home memories and knowledge that will last a lifetime.
New for 2014: We are offering several full day camps!
