SUMMER CAMPS AT SEVERSON DELLS NATURE CENTER

Severson Dells Sumer Camps are a great way for your child to get outside, have fun, get dirty (and maybe even learn something along the way).  Severson Dells offers camps geared for all age groups, interests, and outdoor experience.  Along with our ever popular Grandparents and Kids Camp, this summer marks the return of the Blazing Paddles Youth Canoe Camp, thanks to grants and support from the Winnebago County Forest Preserve District.

All Camps are led by our full-time outdoor education staff, who bring their many years of experience in both teaching and outdoors experience to provide your child with a safe and fun outdoors summer experience.
