The Nature Place Day Camp has inspired, enriched, and changed many of our lives as campers, camp families, and staff. If your experience with The Nature Place has impacted your life, and if you are compelled and able to help make it possible for a child to have a transformative camp experience in the outdoors, please consider a donation to The Nature Place Campership Fund.

Help a Child Experience the
Magic of Summer

Each year, families reach out to us asking about scholarships to make it possible for their child to attend The Nature Place. We are able to help a small number of these families afford camp each summer, though we are not capable of meeting the needs of all who wish to give their child this experience.

Our Campership Fund  was established in 2017 to help bring The Nature Place to even more children who really need it! With the support of camp families, past and present staff, former campers, and others whose lives have been touched by camp, we can bring The Nature Place to even more children who would not otherwise be able to attend. Through our partnership with the American Camp Association, The Nature Place Day Camp Campership Fund accepts tax-deductible donations of any amount, and the funds go directly to camper tuition for families in need.

With Gratitude

If your life, or your child’s life, has been nourished by a summer spent at The Nature Place, please consider spreading the magic and passing on that gift to another child. Your donation is sure to have an impact on a child’s sense of self, wonder, adventure; on their confidence; on their understanding of the world; and on their future…

With Love and Gratitude,
Your Nature Place Family

My summers at The Nature Place instilled feelings of connection, love, and wonder towards nature that only continue to grow stronger. Most importantly, I continue to live my life with a certain phrase in my mind: “Open your mind and say, ‘Ahhhhhh’. Thank you, Nature Place. You changed my life forever.Former Camper
