"Both my children attended Butler Camp and loved it, this is our second year there. The warm atmosphere, organization, hands-on staff and small groups made this experience smooth and seamless. Each child was welcomed and felt very comfortable and loved. The children enjoyed the outdoor explorations, zip line, and obstacle course, crafts, team-building games, swimming in the pool, and dipping in the creek. We highly recommend it if your child enjoys being outdoors!" ~ Lilach

Keeping Your Child Safe and Happy at Summer Camp

We’re committed to the health and safety of our campers. In 2021, we completely redesigned all our camp sessions to incorporate current safety measures and recommendations. As one parent said, “We felt very safe with the COVID measures in place.” Learn more about our safety protocols and plans for 2022.

Butler Camp is the best outdoor camp in the area even in the times of COVID. You saved our summer thank you!

Butler Camp provides children the opportunity to learn and grow in a safe and supportive community. While your child is having fun, they’re also learning important skills that will serve them now and in the future.

Joining our Caring & Competent Camp Community

When your child joins Butler Camp, they become part of our intimate community where everyone knows their name and cheers them on. You’ll feel confident dropping them off with our highly trained, nurturing staff. All activities are supervised by our mature, well-trained, carefully-screened and certified counselors. We look after your children as if they were our own.

Building Life & Leadership Skills

Campers not only enjoy fun adventures but also learn valuable life skills. From building forest shelters to identifying edible plants, campers develop wilderness skills and a respect for nature. Children leave here more confident about their skills and willing to try new things. They’ve learned about teamwork, leadership and how to take care of themselves and the environment.

Connecting Kids with Nature

We’re so much more than a camp. We’re a place where children can learn about and experience nature. Each session campers explore hiking trails, learn wilderness skills and practice environmental stewardship. They leave with a deeper respect and understanding of our outdoor world. Not only is exploring nature fun, it also has a positive impact on a child’s intellectual, emotional, social and physical development.
