What is STEAM Outside Camp all about?
Each day of STEAM Outside Camp will have a different theme, allowing campers to learn about insects, tree identification, reforestation, tree biology, and more. This week-long day camp will take participants into the Tree Pittsburgh Heritage Nursery to uncover the fascinating life of trees from seed up through their first years of growth. Through journaling, art, hands-on lessons, and exciting projects, 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 through first-hand experiences and field techniques.

What is your COVID safety plan?
Great question! Camp will be conducted fully outside, unless a severe weather event sends us indoors (hail, thunderstorms, etc.). We have assessed our campus and identified areas that can safely accommodate our campers while maintaining 6 feet of social distancing. Masks will be required at all times.
