Youth Scholarship Fund

River exploring daycamps 2014We believe that every child needs a chance to discover, learn, and grow in nature nearby. As a result, every year, kids in our programs spend 30,000+ hours outside in nature!

Help us celebrate our 25th birthday by helping us expand our reach even further. Please make a donation to Nearby Nature's Youth Scholarship Fund.

This fund provides financial assistance for children from low income families and schools to participate in our summer daycamps, school programs, No School Day Adventures, and more.
