Closter Nature Center Summer Program

The Closter Nature Center is proud to offer its annual summer program to children ages 4 – 14. For over 50 years, campers have had an opportunity to explore the Nature Center’s 136 acres of ponds, streams, meadows and forests in a fun and nurturing environment. Our campers hike, dig, wade in the water, and examine nature, all under the supervision of a trained naturalist and an assistant.
