Summer Nature Camp
at the Belle Isle Nature Center
Students in our week-long Belle Isle Nature Center Summer Nature Camp will examine the natural wonders and rich history of Belle Isle. Campers will investigate the plants and wildlife on the island and discover how they can care for the places in which they live.
Belle Isle Summer Nature Camp has a priority registration process based on need. Registration preference is given to students who meet any of the following criteria:
- Students who qualify for free or reduced school lunch
- Students who live in a Skillman Good Neighborhood: Osborn, Central, Brightmoor, Cody-Rouge, Chadsey-Condon, and Vernor-Boynton. Click here for Skillman Good Neighborhood Map.
- Youth who reside in a group or foster home.
- Former campers of Summer Nature Camp
Priority registration opens April 1, 2017; any remaining spots are open to all April 21, 2017.
Once registration is full, there is a waiting list available for any spots that become available during the summer due to cancellation.

Our innovative camp curriculum meets the social and developmental needs of campers while giving them enriching experiences in nature, art, literacy, and math.
Belle Isle Nature Center Summer Nature Camp is a day camp divided into two groups for students 5 to 7 years old and 8 to 12 years old.
As the Belle Isle Nature Center Summer Nature Camp is a free camp, priority registration is given to those campers with demonstrated need.
