VINS Nature Camp

The Vermont Institute of Natural Science (VINS) Nature Camp mission is to encourage children to explore the diversity of nature’s living creatures and habitats while learning and living by values such as respect and kindness to each other and our environment. Each day of camp is another opportunity for your child to join an exciting journey to reveal the wonders of the natural world. Whether it is a hike through the woods, a closer look at an insect under the magnifying glass, a messy craft, or a group game that reinforces the value of teamwork; VINS Nature Camp programs are an invaluable and exciting learning experience for children.
