Let’s spend the week together making each day an adventure in the great outdoors at Pepperwood! Guided by our experienced staff Environmental Educators, campers will spend each day exploring the grasslands, forests, and ponds of our 3,200 acre preserve. We will practice hiking skills including trail safety and leave no trace principles. Every day we will get to know more of the plants and animals that call this region home – searching for tracks and signs and learning to identify the flora and fauna we find. We will also enjoy art projects and lots of group games! Campers will leave this week with new friendships, confidence in the outdoors, and a deepened love for nature.

COVID Safety Protocols: Pepperwood’s Summer Camp will align with the current regional health guidelines. Camp staff are fully vaccinated. We will practice physical distancing where possible during camp (members of the same household do not need to distance from each other), and we will be outdoors as much as possible. Our bathroom facilities are sanitized each day, and frequent hand washing will be practiced. If your child does not feel well on any camp date, please do not attend.

Cancellation Policy: A full refund will be given for cancellations 21 days (3 weeks) or more before the start of this event. For cancellations within 20 to 8 days (2 weeks) before the event, a 50% refund will be given. Refunds will not be given for cancellations within 7 days of this event. Cancellation due to a verifiable medical emergency within 20 days (2 weeks) before camp begins may receive a full refund.
