Day Camps

At Hartley Nature Center our day camps feature a mix of traditional camp activities with a focus on exploring our natural surroundings, no matter what the weather! The 660-acre Hartley Park serves as our primary launch pad for adventures aplenty, with additional off-site opportunities for older youth.
