We are a well established 330-acre environmental education center and working farm just 10 miles from DC!  We have certified year-round full-time staff that will be the summer camp program leaders and educators. Our full-time staff work year round with children from across the region and have extensive experience in hands-on, outdoor programming. 

Our programs aren’t just fun – they also promote and model environmental stewardship and positive environmental habits through hands-on activities and exploration.
