Big Laurel Summer Camp

Discover Ecology

How do I sign up for camp?
Who can come to camp?

Summer camps at Big Laurel are for kids finishing 2nd grade all the way through high school! Our camps are separated into older and younger age groups.

What do you do at camp?

Each camp is a four day, three night over-night camp. Campers will enjoy crafts, hiking, swimming, bonfires, ecology lessons, team building, and much more! 

This year's them is "The Web of Life." Our past nature themes have been reptiles and amphibians,  biodiversity, and geology. Let us know if you have any suggestions for future camps themes!

Where is camp?

Camps are hosted at Big Laurel Learning Center's Web of Life Ecology Center. Click here for directions!

We also offer camper pick ups and drop offs at Marlbone Junction Store, located on Marrowbone Creek.

Interested in being a camp mentor?

Have you always wanted to be a camp counselor? If  you went to summer camp as a kid or never got the chance, we'd love to have you join us! If you are a high school or college group or individual who is interested in dedicating a week or more this summer, let us know!
