YEAR ROUND CAMP EXPERIENCES

Calling all nature lovers!

The Verdi Ecoschool offers seven weeks of nature-based camp programs during summer, spring and winter breaks at Wickham Park and Turkey Creek Sanctuary for children ages 4-15.  Campers spend the first three days immersed in nature among the forests and streams of Wickham Park, learning deeply about the ecosystem around them. On their final day, campers embrace their inner explorer and embark on a kayak adventure along Turkey Creek / the Indian River Lagoon with our experienced naturalists.
