Research shows that children who play outside are more physically active, more creative in their play, less aggressive, and exhibit better concentration (Children & Nature Network). Help your children connect with nature by enrolling them in a Conservation District summer camp.
Our camps provide the perfect setting for fun, well-supervised opportunities for children to interact with nature. Campers don’t just hear about nature, they go out and explore our planet. They’ll wet their feet wading in a creek, touch a frog, or catch their first fish.
For over 35 years, since 1982, children have enjoyed memorable camp experiences with the Macon County Conservation District. Our experienced staff provide a safe, caring atmosphere with age appropriate activities for children ages 1-15.
Too old for camp? Adults and teens (ages 13-17) can assist with camp activities as volunteers. For more information, visit the volunteer page. All applicants are screened and must attend volunteer training prior to helping with camp.
