Nature Camp is coming to Burien’s Seahurst Park, starting in late June.

Birds Connect Seattle started Nature Camp in 1982, and for more than 40 years they’ve built a reputation for quality environmental learning, emphasizing experiential outdoor activities that instill an appreciation for nature. Small group instruction with experienced naturalists inspires children to become explorers and stewards of nature.

“This summer, we’re spreading our wings,” organizers said. “We are excited to expand our offerings to new locations, and will have camp sessions for 1st-5th grades at Seahurst Park from June 24 – August 2, and Explorer West Middle School from August 5-23.”

Campers will spend the week learning about local urban nature around various themes: oceans, birds, bugs, art, and more through games, activities, lessons, and outdoor fun. Generous financial aid is available.
