Week in the Woods Day Camps

During these five-day nature camps, children will explore the woods and fields with our naturalist staff. Through nature hikes, fun games and activities, children will discover native animals and plants in their habitats and learn the importance of these living things in the web of life. Each day will bring an exciting new adventure. Campers will be divided into two age groups: children entering grades 1 through 3; and children entering grades 4 through 6. Detailed information upon registration. Advance registration is required. Call 630-444-3190 or email programs@kaneforest.com to register.
