Parklands Summer Camps: Grades 4-6th

9:00 AM - 4:00 PM

Parklands Summer Camps: Grades 4-6th

This group of older adventures will enjoy jam-packed weeks full of exploration and adventure. Each week, weather permitting, campers will get to canoe on Floyds Fork, fish in park ponds, participate in archery target shooting, bike the Louisville Loop, hike forest trails, creek walk, build forts, and play games all while learning about the importance of natural places. Campers will also get to meet birds of prey from Raptor Rehab each week as well as enjoy Sprayground Wednesdays at the Marshall Playground and Sprayground.  A similar structure of activities is used each week but, every week is different as we explore new places in the park, have new encounters with wildlife, and delve into over 100 crafts and games. Summer is an adventure, what better place to enjoy it than The Parklands?! 

*4th-6th Grade participants are charged an additional $5/week to cover the rental of canoes and life jackets.

Get Outside! Camps at The Parklands offer exciting, enriching, discovery-based field experiences that allow children to touch, see and learn about the world around them. Children participate in hands-on science investigations in the natural setting of The Parklands and through the use of state-of-the-art classrooms at the PNC Achievement Center for Education and Interpretation.

All programs offer a balanced day of in-classroom learning and outdoor field experiences. Camp hours are 9:00 AM-4:00 PM with drop-off from 8:30-9:00 AM and pick-up from 4:00-5:00 PM. (All camps operate out of the PNC Center in Beckley Creek Park) Campers must provide their own sack lunch, a snack, and a bottle for water each day.
