Let Pierce County bring the science and wonder of the natural world right into your home! Our insightful and knowledgeable environmental educators have developed and modified plans so that we can offer high quality, interactive nature exploration programming just for YOU, right at home. Through hands on, interactive lessons, kids can continue to do what they do best: remain curious and explore the wonders of the natural world.

Campers in both age level virtual camps can expect:

  • To explore a variety of environmental topics
  • Be led by enthusiastic, knowledgeable, and experienced instructors,
  • Project-based learning activities that are engaging, informative and fun
  • A combination of virtual class meeting time (over Zoom) with online and hands-on activities
  • Individualized attention and small camp and class sizes 
  • Independent camper work time 
  • Live instruction times that correspond appropriately to different grade levels
  • A supply kit for all activities planned for the camp
  • A unique opportunity for parents to get a glimpse into and also take part in their child’s summer camp experiences
