Nature's Classroom FAQ's

We are here to answer any questions you have regarding your Nature’s Classroom experience! To help you, here are some frequently asked questions we receive from teachers and parents. 


Are you open year-round?

Nature’s Classroom primarily runs parallel with the school year – so most of our guests come during Fall, Winter & Spring. We have some availability in the Summer, however it’s more limited because our summer program is in full swing.


Who can come to camp?

Anyone who has an organized group that wants to be here is welcome! Schools, churches, sports teams, scouts, youth groups, and more. Each group needs an official organizer that we work with to build and run your trip.


How many people do I have to/ can I bring?

We have groups from 15 people up to 160 people that come to camp. Everyone is welcome and will get great customer care and attention regardless of group size. We do have a billable minimum of 10 people for overnight stays/meals, just to make sure basic costs are covered.


Do you do overnight camps?

Absolutely! We love hosting our residential groups and keep a nice stock of wood for all those campfires! Groups typically stay for at least 3 days/2 nights up to 5 days/4 nights.


Can we just come for a day?

You sure can! Camp may be one of the coolest and most educationally diverse field trips around.


Do you help with the planning?

Every step of the way! Planning is one of the biggest parts of what we do. Our goal is to streamline and simplify the process so our guests can enjoy their time with us. We’re happy to come to you and run student and parent information meetings, too. Our overnight groups even have someone personally on call for them 24 hours a day.


What about meals at camp—what are our options?

We have a full service dining hall that serves up hot meals to thousands of happy campers every year, including those with special dietary needs. We also have picnic shelters that may be used by our day groups when they “brown bag it.” Whatever works for you!


How do I book a date/see if a date is available?

Give us a call or email! Once you’ve got your date and decide to come, we’ll send you a contract. You simply sign it and return it with a 10% deposit to officially book your date. Easy as pie…
