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!
Due to popular demand, we’ve added two additional weeks of camp in 2020 (13 weeks total!) and have camps for children preschool (age 4-5) through 6th grade. Creek Camp is also scheduled to begin in early June and end in mid-August to accommodate summer vacations. Each camp is a little different; some are half-day (preschool), some are all-day, some are four days, and some have an overnight component. Go here to read about each camp, view the dates, times, and descriptions. If you register by April 30th, your child will get a FREE Creek Camp t-shirt!

“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.”
