For the second summer in a row, SJMA is proud to continue the tradition of one of Durango Nature Studies most beloved and enriching summer camps in Durango. Junior Naturalist Field Camp is a place where elementary-aged children (rising 1-6 graders) will spend time learning about the natural world. Campers may spend their day catching crawdads, building forts, hiking, exploring, or river tromping. Campers leave camp with memories, new friends, and a better understanding of the world in which they live. If you didn’t get enough of Junior Naturalist Field Camp but now are too old, make sure you check out our free Counselor-in-Training Program for ages 12-17.
Each camp session is Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday from 8:30am-4:30pm and Friday from 8:30-1:30.
Session 1: June 7 – June 11; Wildlife Neighbors Session 2: June 14 – June 18; Water World Session 3: June 21 – June 25; Predators and Prey Session 4: July 12 – July 16; Biodiversity Blitz Session 5: July 19 – July 23; Powerful Nature Session 6: July 26 – July 30; Eco-Village – Living off the Land Session 7: August 9 -August 13; Nature Detectives
