    Our Young Explorers (ages 4-6) will experience a new adventure every day as they spend their mornings on the trails surrounding the Mohonk Preserve Visitor Center and enjoy weekly field outings to other locations on the Preserve. They will participate in a range of activities such as building animal shelters in the Children’s Forest, playing nature games, music and storytelling, and creating their own art from nature.

    Based at the Mohonk Preserve Visitor Center, campers will spend their mornings exploring and interacting with nature. Each session will have a new and exciting theme ranging from adventures with water to local animals. Campers will have the opportunity to spend one morning during the week at another trailhead, exploring the many wonders of the Preserve.

  • Camp Peregrine

    As Peregrine Falcons are known to travel widely, so will campers - wandering the forests, fields, and streams of Mohonk Preserve. Through hiking expeditions, stream play, sketching, pond studies, storytelling, land art, and forest explorations, campers are encouraged to find their own unique expression and voice using nature as a medium. Creature searches, nature games, songs, and rambles in the outdoors will introduce your child to the wonders of the Shawangunk Ridge. Special guests will visit and share their scientific and artistic talents. Each day will be an adventure of exploration and discovery in science and the arts.
