Mini Camp – Camp Backcountry

Our week-long, half-day mini camps provide kids with an unparalleled opportunity to play and explore outdoors, all while nurturing children’s wildly curious minds and instilling a love for nature. Each session follows a similar format with lots of traditional camp activities and outdoor adventures, with a different underlying science theme each week. 

Please note, Mini Camps do not fall under our state child care license that our full-day camps do.
