“I love nature! I love looking for salamanders, flipping over rocks and exploring the marsh. It’s so much fun to be at the Lloyd Center. I can’t wait for summer!” – Summer Program Participant, aged 8

Your children and teens will have fun spending the summer outdoors at the Lloyd Center for the Environment. In its 37th season, the Lloyd Center’s Summer Programs are designed to give motivated students an opportunity to explore different aspects of environmental science.

“I have been to the Lloyd Center many times in the past summers. It is still better than any vacation and the number one thing I like to do. I want to work with the Lloyd Center when I grow up. My parents told me to study hard and get good grades. I told them the Lloyd Center helps me with that in the summer. It is so much fun and learning at the same time! … There is nothing better than having a day at the Lloyd Center program and learning about things I like… I have made so many friends there in the past and I hope to make more this year”.  Summer Program Participant – Aged 12

“Going to this program means a lot to me. I first visited the Lloyd Center when I as two years old and really enjoyed holding a sea star…My dad went to the summer program at the Lloyd Center when he was 10 years old many years ago. He tells me that he had a lot of fun at the camp. Being at the Lloyd Center in the summer is an experience that I will remember for a really long time”. – Summer Program Participant – Aged 9
