For more than 30 years, children have come to the Cayuga Nature Center to get outside, get closer to nature, and return home with unforgettable memories. With our own gorge, waterfall, ponds, and miles of trails through forest and fields, it's no surprise that children return year after year. We even have campers whose parents attended camp here!

I am proud to serve as Camp Director at such a wonderful place with a time-honored tradition of providing an unparalleled summer camp experience. The staff and I strive for excellence because we know that a positive camp experience can be life-changing for a child. We take pride in offering a fun and safe environment where children can learn about nature in the best way possible, by exploring and experiencing it firsthand. We integrate science and natural history education programming in every week! This combination is unique in summer camps in Central New York.
