  • The Schuylkill Center for Environmental Education offers two exciting, environmentally-based summer camp programs: Nature Ramblers for younger children and Adventure Treks for pre-teens and teens.  All camp programs are run by experienced environmental educators and offer children and teens unparalleled opportunities to explore the natural world and their connection to it.

    The Schuylkill Center’s Monkey Tail Gang is an after school program for children in Kindergarten through 5th grades. We offer after school care (from school dismissal time to 6:00 pm) that includes nature exploration, outdoor and indoor play, group activities and snacks.

    The Schuylkill Center’s Day-Off Camps get children outdoors and into nature when school’s closed but you still have to work. Trained educators lead students ages 5 through 12 on unique nature-themed explorations that take advantage of our science lab, Discovery Center resources and 340 acres of beautiful wooded trails, streams and ponds.

    The Envirothon is an academically oriented program of study for high school students, focused on the environment, which culminates in a day of competition at The Schuylkill Center.

    The Schuylkill Center welcomes students to their outdoor classroom.  Students receive vibrant context for learning with hands-on exploration and observation of nature at the Schuylkill Center. Our 340 acres of fields, forests, and ponds are a living laboratory for students of all ages.

    The Schuylkill Center offers guided scout programs for both Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts groups, designed for specific age groups and interests.  Our naturalists help scouts earn badges while exploring the Center’s 340 acres of natural area and four miles of hiking trails.
