Nature Camps at the Louisville Nature Center provide children ages 4-12 the opportunity to engage in exploration of the 42 acre Beargrass State Nature Preserve. Campers are placed in groups by age to ensure a high quality, fun, and educational experience where a new adventure awaits every day.
Our weekly sessions are for ages 4-12. Each week has a different theme in which campers will learn as they go on discovery hikes, participate in hands-on activities, arts and crafts, and games.
Camp leaders are experienced environmental educators with CPR and First Aid certification as well as passion for spending time outdoors with kids. All camp leaders undergo background checks.
Weekly camp cost is $200 for Members / $220 for Nonmembers. Campers may arrive between
8:45am-9:30am. Pick up is between 3:30pm-4:00pm. For families wanting to take advantage of before
and after care, the cost is $25 per week for either before or after care, and $40 per week for both
before and after care.
This year LNC will offer a Leaders in Training program for youth ages 13-17. Leaders in Training will
assist camp educators with games and crafts. The weekly cost is $50.
A mandatory training in May will
include an overview of camp activities, games, and songs, in addition to
CPR and First Aid training and certification. Complete the below application for Leaders in Training and fax to 502-458-0232 or mail to 3745 Illinois Ave. Louisville, Ky. 40213.
