Register for CEED Nature Adventure Summer Camp 

Register for Spring Camp – April 22-26

Why I pushed for CEED to have a spring camp

Why I pushed for CEED to have a spring camp

April 22-26

Several years ago, I was one of the CEED Board and staff who advocated for a spring vacation camp. I had been involved with other nature centers that had vacation camps and it always seemed to be a big hit with families and with nature educators.

Spring camp is a different experience from summer camp, with less heat and fewer bugs, and more nature coming to life again wonder.

An experience like this gives kids a nice break from classroom studies. They will be outside and getting more physical activity. It also solves the “what to do with the kids” problem for families that have two working adults. And it gives young people the opportunity to interact with adult role models who are passionate about connecting with nature.

I was glad when we decided to start a spring camp at CEED, and I hope to see it grow. This year, we added a single day option to CEED’s Spring Nature Adventure Camp. You can register your children for a single day, two days, or all five (April 22-26).

I hope you’ll enroll your children or pass on the news to families with children in our area.

Thanks,

Tom Pelletier

CEED Board of Directors

Adventure Awaits!

It is still possible to register for any or all of CEED’s Summer Nature Adventure Camp weeks 4-8, July 24 through August 25. Weeks two and three were maxed out, however, so if you want to ensure that your child has a spot in this outdoor adventure, including kayaking, don’t delay.  Use the button below, or email info@ceedli.org if you have questions.

We’re almost halfway through the summer, but there’s still time …

Kayaks and Beach Day

One of the wonderful advantages of our merger with the Carmans  CEED Nature Adventure Camp is that we’ll be including kayaking on the Carmans River. Add that to Beach Day in weeks 2-4, Farm and Nature camp during weeks 5 and 6, and a Science and Engineering focus in weeks 7 and 8, and it’s clear there is something to make every child fall in love with nature and being outdoors. Camp begins on July 3rd, and goes all the way through August 25th.

Here are three short videos that show what CEED’s summer camp is like:

No matter which week you choose, you can count on your child coming home tired, maybe a little dirty, and full of stories about the wonders of nature. Many weeks book completely, so don’t delay.

  • If you would like to help sponsor a child who couldn’t otherwise afford this program, email info@ceedli.org. And thank you!
  • As sessions fill, you can be added to our waiting list by calling 631-803-6780 or emailing info@ceedli.org.
  • We are also offering aftercare from 3:30 – 5:30 p.m. for families who need that. Email info@ceedli.org for more information.

CEED Nature Adventure Camp 2023

CEED Nature Adventure Camp 2023

CEED Nature Adventure Camp – 8 Weeks July 3rd – August 25th

For children entering grades Kindergarten-7th Grade in September 2023 

(for Teens, see our Leadership Program)

CEED Nature Adventure Camp is expanding again! Your child can now attend for one week or eight weeks, from July 3 through August 25. This spring, we welcomed Bob Polcha to the CEED team as Camp Director.  Bob has decades of experience running summer camps in our community.

The first four weeks in July will be at Post Morrow Foundation’s property on Bay Road in Brookhaven, where children will explore Beaver Dam Creek, Bellport Bay, the estuary, and surrounding woodlands.

Beach Day! New this year.  Weeks 2-4 will include Beach day at Smith’s Point County Park on Fridays!

Farm and Nature. During weeks 5 and 6, we will be exploring Mama Farm and CEED’s Washington Lodge preserve.  Your child will not only experience nature these weeks at CEED, but will also learn what it’s like to live on a farm.

Science and Engineering.  Also new this year, weeks 7 and 8 will be all about nature-related science and engineering at CEED.  Children will be using our natural environment as a laboratory.  Science and engineering are happening all around us, not just in the classroom.  We might build a fishing pole with a paperclip and dental floss or look at plankton through a microscope. Your child will look at the natural world in a fun and exciting new way after this experience!

No matter which week you choose, you can count on your child coming home tired, maybe a little dirty, and full of stories about the wonders of nature. Many weeks book completely, so don’t delay.

Our goal at CEED is to help your children climb that mountain!
