Adventure Day Camp

Children and the outdoors go hand-in-hand. Or at least they used to. Today too many children spend their childhood indoors watching a screen. Studies show that getting kids outside not only improves their physical well-being, it also works wonders on their psychological health, improves their academic skills, and even helps those with ADHD.



In our every deliberation, Dahlem considers the stewardship of our land.  During the last few years, staff and volunteers at Dahlem have worked tirelessly to remove non-native invasive plants, with an eye toward restoring native habitats.

For Teachers

In the fall and spring we offer a variety of programs to teachers who wish to bring their students out on a half-day school field trip. During the fall, winter and spring we also have programs that are ideal for teachers who prefer to have us come to their classrooms.

Upcoming Events
