About Our Camps
Just as children need good nutrition and adequate sleep, they may very well need contact with nature." – Richard Louv
At Baltimore Woods, we believe that the benefits of connections to nature throughout childhood cannot be overestimated.
Baltimore Woods has been running a successful nature day camp program for more than 25 years. We focus on natural history education through spending as much time as possible outside, in the woods, on the trails. We believe that the best way to help children learn about nature is to experience it first hand, at their own pace.
Our counselors are all certified teachers in NYS, an unusual practice for camps in this area, and one that we feel is vital to our approach. Our counselors understand children, they are creative, fun, engaging, and never lose sight of keeping your children safe. They also understand the value of "natural play", of giving the campers a little freedom to explore.
Research has shown that this approach is very effective and has lasting benefits on many levels: physical development, socialization, self-confidence, and instilling a lasting sense of environmental stewardship.
Our campers learn ecological concepts and become connected to the natural world in a very personal and very authentic way.
Send your child to Baltimore Woods; give him or her the opportunity to make a lasting connection to the natural world.
