Our Summer Camp season is full of fun with Nature on the Farm Camps for early and late elementary schoolers at our McDonald Farm headquarters in Naperville.

Nature On The Farm Camps, Naperville

Our week-long, half-day Nature on the Farm Camps at the McDonald Farm in South Naperville will provide your child the opportunity to enjoy fresh air and sunshine while exploring a unique oasis of green in the middle of the suburbs. Explore our native prairie, woodland and pond habitats as well as learn to grow healthy, organic food at our Green Earth Harvest organic farm. Through nature exploration, gardening, games, activities, and crafts, children will experience and learn from nature. Camps are unique each month and attuned to what is growing and thriving at that time, so sign up for one week or both! Enjoy a themed, nut-free healthy snack provided each day.

Camp runs from 9am-12pm each day.

Cost of camp is $145 per child (10% discount for current members of The Conservation Foundation)
