Summer Camp

2019 Summer Camp

The Cayuga Nature Center provides an opportunity for nature enthusiasts of all ages to learn about environmental and outdoor education in a fun and engaging way.The Cayuga Nature Center day camp has been a staple of our educational outreach to the community since its establishment in 1986. Our curriculum approaches learning by integrating hands-on exploration, active game playing, and facilitating conditions for self-discovery of the many wonderful things to be found in our natural world.

Our grounds include 100 acres of diverse habitats for campers to explore on our hiking trials including open fields of native wildflowers, ponds rich with amphibian life, forested gorges with streams and a picturesque waterfall, and educational gardens highlighting themes from pollinator friendly plants to the soil science of organic gardening.

About Summer Learning Loss

“All young people experience learning losses when they do not engage in educational activities during the summer. Research spanning 100 years shows that students typically score lower on standardized tests at the end of summer vacation than they do on the same tests at the beginning of the summer.”
