ARC Natural History Day Camp

ARC Natural History Day Camp The camp is located on the back acres of Panorama Farms, eight miles north of Charlottesville on the Rivanna Reservoir. Its many fields, diverse forests, and abundant creeks and ponds provide an ideal setting for exploring the natural history of the area.

This camp has been lovingly nicknamed "Mud Camp" by all who attend! The purpose is to teach young people how to be observant, inquisitive, sensitive, and resourceful. Discovery is the key to a fun learning experience, and each day we explore a different habitat - pond, creek, meadow or forest - to see what each area has to offer. Natural History is studied through observation, tracking, field expe

ARC Camp - 2020 Summer Season:

Unfortunately, the difficult decision to cancel this Summer's camp has officially been made. The CDC and current guidelines in place make it nearly impossible to keep the spirit of what we do alive, while also keeping our campers and counselors safe.

We hope to come back next year with even more excitement and ready to provide the best camp ever. We hope you will join us on that ride when it arrives.

If you have made any payments, they will be refunded with the exception of the $20 deposit/processing fee. If you paid online, the refund will go directly to that method of payment. If you paid by check, a check will be mailed to you in the next couple weeks. We appreciate your understanding and are happy to answer any of your questions.

Wishing you warmth and sunshine,

Jessica, Kevin & the entire ARC Staff

These kind of waters can be dangerous to anyoneβ€”be safe out today! Flash flood warnings are no joke. ⚠️
