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. Check out our 2022 summer camp brochure  and get daydreaming about those warm sunny days!

This registration system is new! If you have been a Hartley member in the past but have not updated your membership, please see the instructions below to sign into our new member portal.

Tips for registration:

Please Note: this year, your camper(s) may only register for Lunch Bunch if they are registered for an afternoon camp or staying for both morning and afternoon camps.

  • These camps fill up fast!
  • When you click the registration link, a calendar will appear. Please select the week(s) you would like to register for to see the available options. It might be helpful to cross reference our brochure.
  • Your camper belongs in the camp listed with the grade they just finished.
  • If you are a member, your membership discount will be visible on the very last page of checkout.
  • Our system will hold your spot in your cart for 45 minutes while you complete additional registrations.
  • On the page just before checking out, the system will prompt you to “check out other programs you may be interested in.” You can click on this to add additional camps. The link will take you away from your current registration, but it will remain in your cart.
  • Once you’ve done one registration, the “add someone I’ve added before” function will allow you to autofill your camper’s information

Registration will open on March 21st at 8:00 am. Click here to register.
