Schuylkill Center for Environmental Education

Fun, nature-based day camp programs for children and exciting overnight adventure treks for teens. Schuylkill Center summer camps offer children and teens unparalleled opportunities to explore the natural world and their connection to it.

Weekly day camps for 4-9 year olds

Based on 340 acres of diverse habitat, the Nature Ramblers Summer Camp provides 4-9-year olds intimate and ongoing access to forests, fields, streams, ponds and even an organic farm garden. Campers explore the natural world through hands-on discoveries, hiking excursions, art, play, field trips and more.

All camp programs are led by experienced environmental educators, with an educator-to-camper ratio of 1:6 for the four- and five-year olds and 1:8 for older children. Our educators work with each child to foster his/her understanding of and appreciation for the natural world.

Weekly adventure camps for tweens & teens

Our Summer Adventure Treks challenge pre-teens and teens to improve their outdoor knowledge and skills in a safe and supportive setting. Participants learn more about themselves, strengthen self-confidence, and gain teamwork skills while exploring the outdoors in unique and fun ways. They're continually challenged in very safe and incredibly fun environments under the guidance of experienced instructors and outdoor guides.

Each adventure begins on our picturesque grounds, where campers get to know each other. Then they embark on 3- or 5-day outings, depending on the age group, to state parks and national forests along the east coast. During the day, we'll explore the area and participate in organized activities--rock climbing, hiking, canoeing, kayaking, whitewater rafting, backpacking, caving, mountain biking, and more--while evenings are spent by the campfire discussing the day's adventures.
