Root your child in nature with LandPaths over spring break! Modeled after our award-winning IOOBY, spring break campers get to hike the trails, explore life on the creek and under logs, make new friends, and go on nature adventures at our beautiful Rancho Mark West preserve.

At Spring Break Nature Camp, your child will get curious and engaged with nature and their community through the following daily themes: 

Camp Curriculum

  • Discovery and Exploration
  • Watersheds
  • Habitat
  • Stewardship

Our hands-on camp curriculum, taught by experienced and engaging field specialists, cultivates confidence, a sense of belonging, a connection with the land, a stewardship ethic, and nature knowledge.

Staff Safety Training

Our staff of CPR and first aid-certified, college-educated, skilled, and trained field specialists have years of experience working with youth in outdoor settings. Staff to camper ratio is generally one staff to 10 campers. Skilled and trained volunteers assist throughout the day, making the adult to camper ratio closer to 1 adult to 5 campers. All staff and volunteers have been fingerprinted.
