KNC CampWelcome to KNC Camp!

GO WILD at KNC Camp. Don’t stay inside this summer (we’ve had enough of that) come play OUTSIDE with us having FUN! Splash around in Nature’s Playground, explore the gravel pits, and make new friends. Older campers will explore team-building courses, onsite adventures, and campouts! We welcome kids of all abilities and will work closely with you to make sure your child has a great experience.  

Keeping your children as safe and healthy is our number one priority. That’s why we’ve reorganized drop off and pick up, drop off, modified daily activities, added staff, and incorporated safety precautions based on CDC and ACA guidance. For more details, see the Guardian Handbook here.  Space is limited, so sign up today!

We have a new registration system this year! Here are some helpful tips:

1)  Please make sure to read carefully.

2)  Financial Assistance: During Registration you will be able to fill out a request for Financial Assistance. Those who end up qualifying for a 100% financial assistance award will be refunded their deposit. If you believe you will qualify for a 100% award and are unable to pay the 20% deposit, please contact Program Registrar, Tamila Brode, at (269)381-1574 x24 or register@naturecenter.org.

3)  If you will be registering different children for different camps: Register the first child. When you reach the end of registration you will see your shopping cart with price totals. At the bottom of this page is a button that says ‘Keep Shopping’. Click this to return to the list of camps and register subsequent children. Your Financial Assistance Application and Parent/Guardian/Authorized Pick-up Information forms will already be filled out.

4)  If the camp you would like to register for is full, you can still register and automatically be placed on the waitlist.
