Nature Camps


Every summer since 2011 TINS has been offering nature camps in the Tahoe region. Our camps aim to foster a love for the natural world in each of our campers. We offer a wide variety of experiences for children ages 4-17, and in different locations throughout South Lake Tahoe, the North Shore, and Truckee. Campers are guaranteed to walk away learning a bit about the beautiful places in Tahoe they explore through hiking, playing games, creating nature themed art, and making new friends!

Truckee/North Shore Day Camps (in partnership with KidZone or Northstar of Truckee).

South Lake Tahoe Day Camps

Youth Backcountry Camps (in partnership with Tahoe Rim Trail Association).
