Tom Denney Nature Camp

while learning about nature

The Tom Denney Nature Camp was founded in 1976 and is sponsored by the Bolton Conservation Trust. Our dedicated and enthusiastic staff supports Bolton’s commitment to environmental education and to kids. The goal of our camp is to create a safe and enjoyable outdoor learning experience, providing opportunities for children to learn about themselves and develop understanding, respect and responsibility for the environment while making new friends, taking on new challenges, and — most of all –having fun!
