Summer is the perfect time to get outdoors and discover the wonders of  nature! Fenner’s “Go Wild Day Camp” blends exciting games, art, scientific inquiry, and lots of outdoor discovery in ways that will inspire even the youngest naturalists! 

2020 camp sessions have been CANCELED. All registered families are being offered a full refund. 

We want our families to know that this was a very difficult decision to make. We have been privileged to share our summers with countless Go Wild Day Camp families over the years, and not once in more than 40 years have we ever considered a summer without campers.

Our program is adventure-based, and much of the camp’s culture is rooted in how the campers connect with their environment and with one another. Masks, social distancing and being unable to share equipment in many ways would devalue the experience we wished to provide.

For more information on the cancellation, please read the press release linked below or reach out directly to us at


Register by phone or in person using the registration form below. Only complete registrations accompanied by the appropriate fees will be processed. Once your registration is processed, you will receive a packet with additional camp information and camper forms via email. All forms must be completed and returned to Fenner Nature Center prior to your child’s first day of camp. Registration opens for Fenner Conservancy Members March 1 and for Non-Members April 1.

Cancellations, Changes, & Refunds

Cancellations received by June 1st will receive a 50% refund. We cannot offer any refunds after June 1st. If spaces are available, registration can be changed to a different week for a $10 camp change fee.
