Lindenwood Nature Camp
*Adult/Child
Our goal at Lindenwood Nature Camp is  to discover nature through play and exploration. During Lindenwood Nature Camp, children discover plants and animals that live in the nature preserve and experience nature through hands-on, outdoor exploration. Students touch, interact and play with dirt, leaves, sticks and seeds to learn about the world around them. At Lindenwood children can expect to: connect to the outdoors, learn about respect and kindness towards others and nature, go on hikes, and learn about plants and animals. Class sizes are small in order for children to benefit from the personalized attention.
