Touch of Nature Summer Camp 2020 Updates

Due to the ongoing concern with the coronavirus pandemic, Touch of Nature is canceling all summer camp programs through July 31. This was not an easy decision to make, but the health and wellbeing of our campers and our community is of paramount concern.

Summer Camps affected by this cancelation include all sessions for Touch of Nature Camp Little Giant, EdVenture Camp, and Girl Scouts of Southern Illinois sessions.

Online registrations for EdVenture Camps will be fully refunded. Those registered for Camp Little Giant will be contacted by the Recreation Therapy staff for any necessary refunds. Visit Girl Scout  website for information regarding their camps. For questions and information, email tonec@siu.edu.

2020 Camp Little Giant Camp Schedule

See the dates and descriptions for our different camp sessions below. 

Camp Little Giant offer participants an eye-opening view of their own capabilities and the belief that they can increase their confidence and independence. CLG is located on the shores of Little Grassy Lake, near the Shawnee National Forest, with access to an outdoor playground full of adventure!  Our philosophy is to allow campers to develop a "can do" attitude. Our focus is for the camper to be as independent as possible and still following routines, with assistance as needed.

Camp Little Giant offers the opportunity for people with mental, physical, or cognitive disabilities to get in touch with nature in a safe yet exciting manner. Campers leave this camp with grins on their faces and a lifetime of wonderful memories.
