Summer Camps

Nature calls! Maymont’s wildly popular summer camps offer outdoor adventures, animal encounters, games, crafts and hands-on activities for young explorers. There’s no better place to spend the summer than amongst Maymont’s giant trees, rolling hills, winding waterways and wide-open spaces. Camp teachers include Maymont education staff who have years of teaching experience as well as enthusiastic summer staff.

Each 2021 camp session will have a maximum of 14 participants with a 7:1 ratio of campers to teachers. Safety guidelines will be in place, based on the Commonwealth’s applicable regulations at the time of the event. Masks are required for all campers and teachers while indoors and when social distancing isn’t possible outdoors. The use of hand sanitizer and frequent hand washing will be encouraged. Many activities will take place outside, and social distancing will be observed during all activities.
