Digging Into Nature at Pine Hill

Digging into Nature is a specialized, nature-based program for students between the ages of 6 and 9. Each day, campers discover the wonders of nature at Bement's 12-acre outdoor education classroom, Pine Hill. Campers will explore our pond, campground, trails, and surrounding woodland. Participants learn how to build fires, identify trees, leaves, insects, rocks, and gain an appreciation of life in the great outdoors. On rainy days, students have access to Pine Hill's classroom space on site. Come join us and experience the wonders within the picturesque countryside of Deerfield!

The camp day runs from 8:00 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Campers must have completed a kindergarten program in order to register.
