Richard Louv's important book, Last Child in the Woods, started a movement that is sweeping the country. Research clearly shows the benefits of outdoor play for children—physically, socially, emotionally and spiritually! And camps have always championed those connections with the natural world, whether in urban or rural settings, in day or resident camps.
Check out the Web site of The Children and Nature Network, www.cnaturenet.org, the group started by Rich Louv to help grass-roots efforts across the country. They have just published a fine report of all the activity so far and you can download the report on their home page.
