Creek Camps are offered in June, July & August. At Creek Camp, our naturalists guide children in exploring the outdoors, learning about wildlife, enjoying unstructured play, practicing outdoor skills, observing the wonder of nature and enjoying the beauty of the outdoors. Creek Camp helps foster a connection to the outdoors that lasts a lifetime! Many camps are full for this year, but a few camps still have availability. See remaining availability and register here.
