Tyler Arboretum’s Summer Camps connect children with nature as they explore our unique and diverse ecosystems. Enthusiastic, highly-qualified staff and low student/teacher ratios facilitate fun, interactive learning through nature and stewardship projects, games, naturalist-led learning sessions, crafts, and hikes.
Welcome to Camp J, where campers make memories and friendships that
last a lifetime! Our camps encourage campers, from toddlers to teens,
to explore and develop their interests in a fun, supportive community. Camp
J campers become more independent, experience being part of a community,
and learn to interact with their peers while participating in a variety of summer
programs, trips and events.
We carefully craft our camp programs to nurture your child’s interests, offering
general and specialty programs, with age-appropriate activities focused on
both fun and learning. There’s never a dull moment at Camp J!
Your child’s care and well-being are our priorities. Our staff members embody
the friendly, energetic and caring environment that we create at Camp J, and
our low staff-to-camper ratio (no more than 10 campers for each counselor)
ensures a safe and successful summer.
We hope that your family will join us at Camp J this year and be part of another
summer of fantastic memories...we know they’ll last a lifetime!
