Rapp Nature Camp is a summertime day camp in the mountains of Rappahannock County, Virginia. Established in 1986, the 2019 summer will be our 34th year and we could not be more excited! This site gives you information about Rapp Nature Camp, Summer Sessions and Events, Tuition and Registration, our Non-Profit Organization, and Ways to Donate – to help keep our beloved camp running for many more years to come!

We are deeply thankful again this year to the Emily Jane Hilscher Passion Award Fund, the people who contribute to the fund, and the Hilscher family for their continued support both for Rapp Nature Camp and the many children for whom they have provided scholarships over the years. Emily’s passion and love of nature lives on in the wonderful and profound experiences of our campers year after year.
