Bernheim is the perfect place for your student to have a summer full of adventure! Join Bernheim staff and volunteers for a unique day camp, where campers will explore Bernheim’s 16,000+ acres and take part in a wide array of exciting, nature-based science activities. Campers will participate in experiences that build confidence and connection to the natural world, such as fishing, archery, kayaking, creek walks, hiking, scavenger hunts, and fort-building. Groups will enjoy various Kentucky habitats while learning about the many flora and fauna that call this state home. There will be time to get creative with many nature-based art projects, crafts, and discussions. Campers will leave each week with new friends, lifelong memories, and a deeper connection with the natural spaces around us.
Camp Bernheim is for children ages 6-13. We will offer six one-week sessions, June 21 - July 30, 2021, 9 a.m. - 4 p.m. Fees and information about registration will be posted soon. Contact Olivia Belk with any questions.
JUNIOR NATURALIST EXPLORERS
Bernheim is building the next generation of environmental stewards — one inquiring young mind at a time! Bernheim Junior Naturalist Explorers will bring together youth ages 6-12 and their families to connect with nature, learn about Kentucky flora and fauna, practice observational skills, and create memories in the outdoors. Staff will lead monthly hands-on programs to build curiosity and knowledge. Junior Naturalists are provided with guided field journals for self-exploration, with badges and rewards given for completing their adventures. The program will begin in fall 2021. Contact Olivia Belk for details.
