Flying Deer Nature Center is a wilderness school and community dedicated to mentoring children, youth, adults, and families in deep connection to nature, self and others.
For 21 years, FDNC has offered nature immersion programming for people of all ages. Our summer camps, adolescent rites-of-passage experiences, and homeschool, in-school, after-school, and adult programs have reached more than 5,000 children, teens, and adults. Since 2013, we have doubled both the size of our budget and the number of people we serve based on the strong need and interest in all that we provide.
In 2018, Flying Deer will be moving to a beautiful property in East Chatham, New York, that was generously donated by longtime community members Jeanne and David Laskin. We need your help to make our April 2018 move-in date a reality. Thank you for your support! Find out about our programs and the new location.
