Program Locations and Dates
Virtual Nature Camp – Nature…At Your Own Pace…in Your Own Space
Can’t get to one of our NJ Audubon centers? Join our camp staff for a week of home exploration, complete with activities from our Bridges to the Natural World Nature Quests, live interaction via video with our naturalists twice a week, games and challenges to connect with kids all over the state.
Choose One or All Four Quests
New Jersey is home to so.many.animals! And many of these can be seen right in your own yards or local parks. Migrate with the birds, meet our education animals, Captain Jack and Ginger, make your own jumping frog, create your own fish and learn about common mammals in the neighborhood.
Crazy Crawling Critters
You don’t have to travel far to find cool crawlers! Don’t squish that bug, instead let’s look a little closer. Whether exploring your yard and neighborhood, rolling a log, shaking a branch, or wading into wetlands there are fascinating critters ready to be discovered. We’ll also have a chance to meet a “living fossil”.
Go with the flow! Explore how water travels through winding rivers and streams and acts like sponge. Visit the beach to discover who lives in salt water. Play in puddles and find out “who” may visit. See how animals live in their watery world and have a frog concert.
There are many ways to enjoy nature. Let’s learn how to be responsible as we explore. Learn how to build a shelter and set a trail. Learn where you may find fish and how to catch them with homemade tools! Use the sun to tell time and cook treats! Make art and play games with your shadow! Experiment with the sun to make a plant dance!
