Adventure Summer Camp

Summer vacation is the perfect time for children to explore nature. Our camps are designed to let children ages 3 to 13 discover the natural world, make new friends and gain confidence as they learn new skills and take on outdoor adventures.  Camps are led by professional naturalists who nurture each child’s natural sense of wonder.

Adventure Summer camps are held at Wehr Nature Center and in other Milwaukee County Parks.  There are many different offerings including:
