What makes an Imago camp special?

Our camps tap into the power of nature to shape young lives and create amazing memories that will last a lifetime.

Nature:
Our camps emphasize being outside and feature activities that are not common in everyday life. From hiking to working on a garden, each day is full of new experiences that tap into children’s natural affinity for the outdoors.

Skills:
Campers will learn new skills in natural history, outdoor recreation, sustainability, and outdoor survival.

Community:
Our camps are not just a collection of campers, but rather a community. From chores, to inventing games, to making snacks, our camps are designed so that campers can be a part of a thriving camp community.  

Camper Led:
Finally, we believe that the best camps are the ones that the campers help to shape and create. Our camps intentionally have time for camper led inquiries, games and activities.
