Cylburn Nature Camp
Cylburn’s Nature Camp focuses on the environment and teaches children (ages 5 to 11) knowledge of and respect for nature and their surroundings. They will explore our 200-acre park with counselors who will teach them about the plants and animals they encounter, fungi, weather, watershed issues, ecosystem balances, and more!
Children hike the trails, participate in science-oriented mini classes, and partake in activities that combine science with art: homemade sundials, insect houses, and optical illusion spinners, to name a few.
Throughout a week-long session, activities are mixed with eco-oriented games and lunch locales set in our different gardens.
Join the fun and watch your children learn to be good stewards of our environment.
