"ENC Nature Camps combine environmental education and nature play," said ENC Nature Adventure Camp Director Corina Silva. "Our camps provide children with much needed time in the outdoors at a time when so many kids are more comfortable in front of a tablet or tv."

The Environmental Nature Center is committed to teaching children about nature, and instilling in them a desire to live in an environmentally responsible manner. 

"Here at the ENC, we are passionate about helping integrate nature into children’s lives," said Little Naturalists Camp Director Valerie Bain. "During President’s Week Camp, we will give them the tools to explore and enjoy nature. They will be given the chance to dig in the dirt and find earthworms, they will create crafts using natural materials, and laugh and play while making new friends with other children."
