Summer Ecology Camp

The Kreher Preserve & Nature Center Summer Ecology Camp offers the opportunity to learn through nature in a safe and beautiful environment.  Campers will experience complete, nature-based lessons covering diverse educational topics; and enjoy exercise and fresh air through hikes and time on the Nature Playground.  Summer Ecology Camp is a great opportunity for your children to socialize with their peers, learn about nature and the important role it has in our lives, and see wildlife up close.

Camps run Monday through Friday from 8:00 AM until 12:00 PM.  Drop off begins at 7:45 AM.  All weeks are designed for upcoming 1st through 7th graders. Choose one or more weeks of camp for your child(ren) when you register.
