Our 15th year of summer camp opens on January 20!

Updated: Jan 20


It's almost time to enroll for Summer Camp 2024! Register starting at noon on Saturday, January 20, on the updated Parent Dashboard.


Here's an overview of the schedule, with some key highlights.


We've moved two streets down, and our name change is nearly complete! You'll see Outdoors More Nature Camp on our website and other pages. Our original Camp Scene emails and website will redirect. Bookmark the new Parent Dashboard link. None of your account information has changed, and saved logins may still work. We recommend logging in before enrollment in case you need to reset passwords or request any support. Our new address is 227 Weekes Street, Decatur.


Sessions will be held from May 28 through July 26. Field trip sessions will not be held the week of July 1-5. On site nature camp will run that week, except for the holiday on Thursday, July 4. T-shirts will be available for purchase during registration, but aren't required to be worn at camp.


Teen weeks are returning! Calling all alumni and teens ages 13-15. We are offering two unique encore sessions for another summer of fun.


Field trip adventure sessions. We have an exciting summer planned! The minimum age for field trips has increased to age 7, to meet requirement changes at key destinations. Campers who are ages 5 to 6 are welcome to join us at on site nature camp!


Drop-off is from 8:15 a.m. to 8:45 a.m., and pickup is from 5:30 p.m. to 5:45 p.m. No field trip sessions will be held the week of July 1.
