Dune Adventure Teen Camp

Teens have the opportunity to explore Indiana Dunes National Park: kayaking and fishing, splashing in Lake Michigan, hiking the trails, and visiting live animals. One day is spent with a ranger, exploring the Dunes and practicing nature photography skills. And of course, favorite activities will be back: singing around the campfire and spending a night sleeping under the stars in a tent! Teens ages 14-17.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, summer camp will look a little different this year. Dunes Learning Center will follow the recommendations of the CDC the other public health officials.

  • Camp capacity has been carefully considered to keep trail groups small and physically distanced.
  • All campers are required to show proof of a negative Covid-19 test before the start of camp.
  • Deposits and fees have been adjusted for 2022. Please click here to read the full deposit and refund policy.
