Summer Camps Season at Touch of Nature

Summer Camps has been a tradition at Touch of Nature since the 50s when Dr. William Freeberg created one of the first camps of its kind for adults and children with disabilities. That camp is now called Camp Little Giant, and it offers an authentic camping experience for adults and children with various disabilities and abilities. Find out about and register for Camp Little Giant here.

Our EdVenture Camps offer a variety of exciting, educational and adventurous summer camps experiences for ages 7-15. Multi-camp and multi-camper discounts are available. Find out about and register for EdVenture Camps here.
