A summer of fun, outdoor play, and learning are just what the children in your life need right now.
At Indian Creek Nature Center’s Creek Camp, your child will be guided by our full-time Naturalists Andria Cossolotto and Emily Roediger and experienced Summer Naturalists as they explore the outdoors. Campers will learn about wildlife, enjoy unstructured play, practice outdoor skills, observe the wonder of nature and enjoy the beauty of the outdoors. Children will create memories while they learn and even get a little dirty, too. Creek Camp will help foster in your child a connection to the outdoors that lasts a lifetime!
Creek Camps begin in early June and run through the middle of August, and are offered for preschool children (ages 4-5) through 5th grade. All camps are drop off experiences and are listed by the grade the camper will have most recently completed by the time of camp. This year all camps are half-days, and most of the options are for multiple day experiences. Most age groups have multiple different topic and date options. Covid safety procedures will be in place such as small group sizes, requiring face masks and spending most of the time outdoors. Go here to read about each camp, view the dates, times, and descriptions.

Gift cards are also available in $25, $50 or $100 increments! Gift cards can be applied to anything at Indian Creek Nature Center, including Creek Camps, items in our Creekside Shop, memberships, programs, etc.
“Gift cards are great because most children have plenty of everything but the outdoors,” says ICNC Board Member Terry Strait. “They make perfect gifts so children can be involved in an outdoor learning environment, and families then have the choice of what classes they want to take that fits their family’s schedule.”
