Nature Camp

NATURE CAMP

Located in the largest urban wilderness east of the Mississippi, our nature camp provides fun outdoor learning experiences! Join us for active inquiry and hands-on play as we make new friends and explore the natural treasures of the Gwynns Falls Park. Stream studies, insect investigation, creative arts, and games are all part of the fun! NOTE: Campers must bring water bottles and lunch each day. Wear clothes that can get messy!

Wild Adventures 

Each Week is a Wild Adventure! With the park as our backdrop, we will investigate the wildlife that surrounds us.
