Summer Camp 2019 – The Nature Center

 

The Dunwoody Nature Center features 22 acres and four distinct habitats that allow campers to explore nature as it was meant to be. By combining play and learning through different weekly themes, children are able to grow and develop at their own pace, connect with nature, and better understand their place in the natural world. Campers love to play in the teepee, dip their toes in Wildcat Creek, and test their skills in the forested playground. Year after year, the Nature Center’s camps achieve satisfaction ratings of nearly 100% and most of our new camp families each summer come as referrals from other campers!

Last year, every one of our camps filled to capacity, so don’t delay! Registration begins February 1 at 6:00am for members, and remaining spots will be available to non-members on February 15. You can become a member during registration to enjoy discounts of up to $35 for each camp your child signs up for, plus numerous other benefits throughout the year. Already a member or not sure if your membership is up to date? Send us an email at info@dunwoodynature.org and we’ll be happy to check it for you. Or, renew right here today!

Not a member? Join today to enjoy discounts on all our camps and classes, plus free admission to our Summer Concert Series and members-only preview to our Butterfly Festival.
