Westchester County Parks: Nature Camps

West Harrison, NY

Overview

Boys and girls entering pre-K through grade 12 can explore and discover the natural environment of Westchester County with fun, hands-on experiences at our nature centers. Each camp will focus on different aspects of nature with weekly themes and teach youngsters about animals, insects, plants and more.

Emphasis is placed on developing the observation skills of a naturalist and a more personal relationship with nature. Participants assist with plant, animal and habitat conservation efforts in the park and complete a service project.
