Have fun and enjoy the outdoors with STEAM Outside Camp @ Tree Pittsburgh!

STEAM Out­side Camp will engage your 4th, 5th, or 6th grad­er in the urban for­est, fields, and rivers through a STEAM (Sci­ence, Tech­nol­o­gy, Engi­neer­ing, Art, and Math­e­mat­ics) lens. Camp takes full advan­tage of Tree Pittsburgh’s 5‑acre river­front cam­pus with inter­ac­tive activ­i­ties focused on the ben­e­fits of trees, nature in an urban envi­ron­ment, explo­ration of ripar­i­an forests and riv­er habi­tats, and the life of a tree from seed to sapling at our Her­itage Nursery.

What is STEAM Outside Camp all about?

Each day of STEAM Out­side Camp will have a dif­fer­ent theme, allow­ing campers to learn about the insects, birds and mam­mals that trees sup­port, how trees keep our rivers clean, trees and cli­mate change, and more. Through jour­nal­ing, art, sci­ence projects, nature walks, tree plant­i­ng, and pad­dle-board­ing on the Alleghe­ny Riv­er, campers will explore the urban for­est while flex­ing their STEAM mus­cles in an out­door set­ting. Par­tic­i­pants will also have the chance to meet Tree Pittsburgh’s staff arborists and dis­cov­er how they can make a dif­fer­ence in the urban forest.
