Rapp Nature Camp is happy once again to announce a series of nature education outings for adults – our “Perennial Campers!” We will have a special orientation meeting March 3, 4pm, to be followed by six excursions to interesting habitats in Rappahannock and surrounding counties. Some of our topics for study and observation will be: tree identification, butterflies and dragonflies, migrating birds, and sky phenomena. Attendance at all events will be optional, and all Perennial Campers will be able to bring along a guest! Minimum age is 18, but guests may be any age if accompanied by an adult. Check back here or call (540) 987-9530 for details.

We value and appreciate your support and wish for your participation. We hope to see you at our Summer Day Camps for kids, our Day Camp Open Houses, or our Perennial Camper events!
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!
Education is not the filling of a bucket, but the lighting of a fire.
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.
