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. Children participate in hands-on science investigations outdoors and in the classrooms at the PNC Achievement Center.
New summer 2022 – The Parklands is offering 2-week advanced hiking sessions for kids in 7th-10th grades!
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, canoeing, 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.
