Mighty Acorns® Nature Camp is held at Indiana Dunes Environmental Learning Center in Chesterton, Indiana, and offers students in current Mighty Acorns programs the opportunity to spend an entire week exploring our regional natural resources.[more info…]
During their 5-day/4-night stay, nature campers:
• Explore wetlands, prairies, dunes and woodlands
• Learn about and observe wild animals in their native habitats
• Sing campfire songs and make s’mores
• Participate in local restoration and other stewardship projects
Summer camp is available to Mighty Acorns students at a greatly reduced price from the actual cost of $235 per camper, thanks to generous funding from Chicago Wilderness, Illinois Department of Natural Resources/Conservation 2000, regional foundations, and contributions from businesses and supporters of Mighty Acorns.
