Aftercare is available as an add-on with pick-up as late as 5:30pm. Beforecare is also available at some locations.

We have camps at three locations in the Eugene/Springfield area.

Scholarships

Nature connection is for everyone. That’s why we are committed to making nature camps accessible for as many students as possible. We are proud to offer need-based scholarships for students who would like to attend our programs. Discounts are available for up to half off the program cost.

Each Camp Is different

No two camps are ever the same. Our curriculum is dynamic and responsive the ever-changing needs of our students, staff, and the natural environment. As a result, each camp experience is a unique encounter that will never be repeated in just the same way again.

BeforeCare & Aftercare

Whole Earth Nature School supports working families as part of our commitment to make deep nature connection available to everyone. Our convenient after-camp care is designed to support the needs of parents by providing before-camp child care from 7:30 am and after-camp child care until 5:30pm, Monday through Friday.
