To build a connection to nature and the outdoors, youth need parents, grandparents, and guardians who understand and support their kids and teens passions to hike, bike, and play outdoors. NKJN fuels that understanding and support by ensuring the youth we serve’s family members have ample opportunity to become exposed to a myriad of nature and outdoor experiences.

COVID-19 Update:

 All Nature Kids programs for the summer of 2020 will be reduced, as organizations determine how to comply with COVID-19 related laws and regulations. It is with a heavy heart that we share these difficult decisions regarding Nature Kids programs. We care deeply about our families, and we empathize with the struggles that these decisions will bring. We will show up alongside families to the best of our ability and we will be as fair as possible in determining participants for reduced camp sizes. We will be following up with all of the families who are enrolled or on the wait list individually over the next few weeks as we learn more information about each camp. We have created an FAQ to provide answers to the most common questions about our small group size camps and how we are planning to ensure a safe and fun camp during this time of COVID-19. 


From camping in your backyard at Waneka Lake to backpacking in the Colorado mountains, Nature Kids Lafayette programs will deliver fun for your family!

COVID-19 update

Other programs in Nature Kids will likely change as well but we do not have fully updated information to share with you. All of our partners are working on contingency plans for the summer. As soon as our partners communicate with us regarding what they are planning to do this summer, we will be in touch with the families of those enrolled. 


Throughout the year, Nature Kids Lafayette partners will host fun events in Lafayette!  Check out the summer line-up!
