You may only sign your child up for one camp (does NOT include Summer Nature Olympics) during the month of April to give more participants the opportunity to attend.

Summer Nature Olympics

Turn your child into a nature Olympian! Four weeks throughout the summer we will host programs at two different times allowing youth to practice and compete in an activity. We will score participants in each activity and have an overall winner from the summer. Participants can come to all four activities or just one. We ask that participants only come to one program a week. All sessions will meet at the Jefferson County Park Nature Center EXCEPT for Kayaking which will meet at Shelter #3 in Jefferson
