If you and your kids LOVE the outdoors, arts, science, writing, and FUN, now’s your chance to JUMP IN and enjoy all of that (and more) this summer!

The brand-new NEAT Camp is now open for registration! Join us for a week-long day-camp focused on outdoor learning and activities meant to build student’s creativity, logic, collaboration, artistic skills, writing, civic engagement and a lot more! NEAT Camp is an outdoor, environmental education program developed with inclusion and equity at the foundation. Our goal is to engage students in grades 6-8 who identify as Black, Indigenous, Native American, Latinx, Asian, LGBTQ+ and anyone else who has been underserved by environmental education programs in our area, including people in lower-income households.
