2016 Summer Camp at Madden Outdoor Education Center


Madden Science & Exploration Camps are dedicated to giving youth the opportunity to safely explore our natural world and rekindle the instinctive scientist and ecologist in them!

This year we are offering the camps at both Madden and the BOCES Fox Meadow Campus in Yorktown Heights. Weather with Jim Witt (7/5-7) and Falconry Academy (8/7-11) will take place at Fox Meadow. High Flying Adventure is Travel Camp – see details following camp list. The other camps will take place at Madden.

Our enthusiastic staff is experienced in dynamic, hands-on, experiential, and inquiry-based teaching and may be familiar to your child through the programs they teach in local schools throughout the school year.
