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.
