Bushy Hill offers unique summer day camps for children ages 4+. We believe that as people grow in their understanding of the natural world, they also grow in their understanding of others and, ultimately, of themselves. Located on 700 acres of mixed forested land, Bushy Hill features miles of maintained hiking trails, a private mile-long lake, a friendly farm, ropes courses, tipi, wigwam and nature center.

Activities include exploring the forest, pond probe, hiking, team building, group games, swimming, tracking, safe fire making, plant/animal identification, boating, cooking over a campfire, and more! Camps run 8:30 a.m.-4:00 p.m. with bus transportation, before and after-care available upon request.
