Camp Selah has been an educational and exciting five day nature camp for over eight years for kids between the ages of 10-13. Wonderful guest speakers join the Bamberger staff to offer science-based outdoor activities and lessons. Campers swim and canoe in our spring-fed lake, hike the trails, catch and identify critters, view nightly bat emergences, walk in the footprints of dinosaurs, and sing songs by campfires under clear night skies.
The camp is designed for those really interested in nature and kids leave the camp smarter about their native environments and with a stronger land ethic. Space is limited to 20 (approximately 10 boys and 10 girls).
The application process is easy — write an essay in your own words about what nature means to you and provide a letter of recommendation from a teacher (preferably science). The 2016 camp is currently full. Contact us to be placed on a waiting list.
Price for the camp is $525 and some scholarships are available (up to 50%).
Please note: although activities are not strenuous, campers will be spending most of their time out of doors and there is always a small risk involved with exposure to insects, plants, etc. Campers are expected to be proficient swimmers and will be asked to take a short swimming test upon their arrival. Medical release and liability forms will be provided for parents to fill out upon acceptance to the camp.
