School Break Mini Camps

Looking for an activity the kids can do during school breaks?  Teatown’s Mini Camps offer fun and learning while exploring nature! 

We offer three environmental mini camps for children ages 6-12 years during school break weeks.  The camps are run by our environmental educators who help foster young children’s innate curiosity and enthusiasm about flora and fauna through a mix of outdoor explorations and age appropriate activities, games and crafts.

It’s been a long winter, so shake off those winter blues and join in the fun at Teatown!  We’ll have four days of outdoor activities and exploration on Teatown’s trails for the adventurous child to enjoy.  All activities will take place outdoors,  Children should come with lunch and water, dressed in clothing and footgear appropriate for being outdoors for 4 hours in cool, muddy, or wet conditions.

Monday, March 29 – Thursday, April 1, 10 am – 2 pm.
