The Greenbelt, with its natural areas, parks, hiking trails, streams, ponds, vistas, Nature Center and Carousel is the campers’ territory. It’s a great place!

The Greenbelt’s environmental educators run the camp program. The Greenbelt Environmental Education Department was designated a National Environmental Education Landmark by the United States Department of the Interior in 1971.
Q: What is the cost of camp?
Fees vary with the program. Greenbelt Conservancy “Family” members get significant discounts; in some cases the savings more than pay for the price of the membership – which helps bring you great programs like this.
It is easy to join the Conservancy. Membership gives you discounts on many activities and events, and provides important support to our environmental education programs. The money you save on the Summer Day Camp program may pay for your membership!
