Eco-Camps & Programs

Campers at Cary Institute spend a week as ecologists and experience the joys of exploration, immersion in nature, and discovery. Our Ecology Camps are special opportunities for children to work with cutting-edge scientists and educators in our unique setting.

Camp Schedule 2024

We are offering two different rates aligning with income as a way to offer more equity to our camp families. For households with an income of <$75K/yr, [B] fees apply. 

In addition to fee options, we are able to offer a limited number of scholarships to families who qualify thanks to funding from the Dyson foundation. Students who qualify for free or reduced lunch, as outlined by federal income eligibility guidelines, are eligible.

Camp days run 9am to 4pm. For Eco-Discovery camp, late pick-up is available until 5pm for an additional $50/week ($40/week for the “B” fees).

Note: Each week of Eco-Discovery Camp follows the same curriculum, so campers may participate for one session only.

Registration closes 2 weeks before each session.
