Ingham County Parks

Burchfield Park's Exploring Nature Day Camp provides a safe, guided and enjoyable experience in a natural setting. Our Day Camp Naturalists guide campers through a fun and educational curriculum by blending exciting games and crafts. Campers learn about nature through their senses by touching the bark of a tree, swimming in a pond on a hot summer day, listening to the sounds of nature, watching animals move about in their natural habitat and walking in the cool green forest. Camp sessions run Monday through Friday in the summer, and are developed to encourage young campers to become engaged with nature and to provide them with experiences they will share with family and friends.

Campers will explore Burchfield Park's 540 acres - from woods to wetlands and participate in hands-on activities that will help them learn more about the natural world surrounding them. Activities, crafts and games are planned to provide recreational enjoyment while challenging young minds to nurture and support nature.

Enrollment is open to children ages 5-12. Children age five must have completed kindergarten.
