NatureBridge Yosemite Summer Days is tailored for the children of Yosemite area community members. Participants explore Yosemite Valley with our experienced educators. Days are filled with learning, games, group challenges, exploration and hiking. 

For Summer 2024, priority registration will be offered to local families impacted by the Yosemite Valley Child Care Center closure. This program is not open to the general public. After April 26, 2024, registration will open to the greater local Mariposa and NatureBridge community.
