Explore, play, and learn this summer at Rice Creek! Exploring Nature is a summer camp designed to encourage young people's curiosity about their world through habitat exploration, nature walks, learning games, and science and creative activities, in operation since 1983.


We invite children and young adults ages 5 to 16 to experience our state-of-the-art science facility, 350-acre natural area, and 5 miles of trails skirting forests, fields, ponds, and streams, located at 193 Thompson Road in Oswego.


Exploring Nature Leadership, our program for 15-16 year-olds, helps our oldest age group hone their natural history knowledge and practice sharing that knowledge with others.
