Day Camps (Ages 4 to 12)

Urban Summer Day Camp

Pine’s summer day camps are all about getting kids outside, connecting with nature and having fun. Campers have the chance to explore city parks, play nature games, learn new wilderness and naturalist skills, and connect with their peers.

Registration for our 2023 Summer Day Camps will open on Wednesday, February 1st at 12:00pm (noon)! You can find more registration details below.

Looking for an option for teens? Check out our Teen Urban Summer Program for teens ages 13-15, and our Leaders in Training (LIT) program for teens ages 14-16.

Summer 2023 Session Details:

This is a summer camp lasting one week with daily sessions.

Registering by age: To ensure kids of all ages are able to join us, we’ll be registering campers by age ranges: 4-6yo, 7-9yo, 10-12yo. However, individual camp groups will be created closer to the camp’s start date and will allow for mixing between these age ranges. As always, we will do our best to accommodate friend requests, but we cannot make guarantees.

***Two Week Limit Per Participant***
To ensure access to as many children as possible, we restrict campers to TWO WEEKS of camp.


We update program availability about once a week, but things can change fast! To double check if spots are available in your camp of interest, we recommend heading over to our registration site (click "Register" below). If a camp is full, we strongly encourage you to sign up to waitlists! We typically see quite a bit of movement on our waitlists before camps begin and we’d love to let you know if a spot opens up.
