This summer, get your kids outdoors with fun, educational experiences at nature camps around Iowa. Nature camps provide a great way to get kids thinking about their natural surroundings, while enjoying public lands and beautiful Iowa places older generations have loved for decades!

Below is a list of camps and resources to find the perfect opportunity for your area. Many camps begin registration in March and April, so grab those spots while they’re still available! If you know of a camp not included on this list, let me know at and I’ll add it to the list!
