Be a happy camper.

Our Parklands Outdoor Adventure day camps let kids experience nature up close. We offer these exploration-based camps to children in grades K–6 in the winter, spring, and summer as well as grades 7-10 in the summer. Children participate in hands-on science investigations outdoors and in the classrooms at the PNC Achievement Center.

Outdoor Adventure Camps

Learn and explore.

All of our programs balance in-classroom learning with hands-on outdoor explorations, so kids can be kids. Depending on the season, activities include hiking, fishing, games, archery, kayaking, biking and creek walking. Campers must bring a snack, a bottle of water, and their own sack lunch each day. Parklands Members receive a discounted camp price.

Camp hours are 9 AM–4 PM. Drop-off is from 8:30 – 9 a.m. and pick-up is from 4 – 4:30 p.m.


Summer is almost here! Don’t wait and reserve your camp spot early!
