Summer Day Camps
Our week-long summer day camps run 6/15/20 through 9/4/20.
Camps are 9-3:30pm for ages 6-17, and 9-1:00pm for groups that include only ages 3-6.
Unfortunately, due to COVID-19 restrictions, we are unable to offer aftercare and beforecare this summer.
We have camps at three locations in the Eugene/Springfield area.
COVID-19 and refund policy
Summer Camps are still happening!
We are glad to announce that, in accordance with new safety guidance provided by the Governor’s office and the Oregon Health Authority, Summer Nature Camp is officially happening in 2020. We are so grateful to be able to gather outdoors again and support our students in developing their confidence, resilience, and kinship with nature.

Nature connection is for everyone. That’s why we are committed to making nature camps accessible for as many families as possible. We are proud to offer need-based scholarships for families 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
Due to restrictions surrounding COVID-19 Whole Earth Nature School will, unfortunately, not be able to offer beforecare or aftercare this summer.
Convenient & Awe-inspiring Locations
Hendricks Park is Eugene’s oldest city park. Its 78 acres include a mature forest, a world-renowned rhododendron garden, and now a new native plant garden. Laced with trails, the park is a haven for hikers, birders, and others who enjoy retreating to the tranquility of nature.
One of the shining jewels of Lane County, Mount Pisgah Arboretum is a 209-acre living tree museum. Its riverside trails, quiet paths through evergreen forests, water garden teeming with life, bright wildflower meadows, and open views across oak savannas delight all ages.
Along the river is a maze of trails guiding you to beaver dams, hidden hollows, and big old trees. There are 50 acres of riparian habitat with a mix of clear views of the river and forest depths filled with understory brush. The perfect place to adventure!
