This is a whole week dedicated to the crown jewel of Dunwoody Nature Center, Wildcat Creek. The campers will learn all there is to know about our creek – What feeds it? Where does it go? Who lives in there? What grows near it? And perhaps most importantly- How can we help to preserve this local treasure? Bring them prepared to get wet and go home happy!

June 14-18 | Jeepers Creepers

One half day spot left!

Kids love bugs! They are just plain fun, especially when they can spend a whole week learning about and scouring the Nature Center for ladybugs, roly-polys, ants, water striders and more. Kids will explore the world of bugs as they sing about them, move like them, paint them, and even hold them!

June 21-25 | Claws, Paws, and Jaws

Campers will discover the impressive features and adaptations of several top predators in North America both big and small. They will learn how loud a bear can roar, how sharp shark teeth are, and if an owl can really turn its head all the way around.

Because one week in the creek just isn’t enough, we’ve added a second week of our most popular camp – Creek Week! Campers will learn all there is to know about our creek – What feeds it?

August 9-13 | Bugs and Butterflies (half-day only, ages 3.5-4)

Nothing captures the attention of our youngest campers more than finding a really cool bug or watching a beautiful butterfly flutter through our pollinator garden.
