Camps

The Parklands offers camps for children in grades K-6 during spring, summer and winter breaks. Children participate in hands-on science investigations in the natural setting of Beckley Creek Park. Camp activities include creek walking, hiking, canoeing, fishing, archery, science experiments, games, and more! Come outside and explore with us!

2020 Outdoor Adventure Camps

*COVID-19 Update - May 14

While we await more direction from the Governor’s office and health officials, we have made the decision to offer our weeklong Parklands Outdoor Adventure Camps beginning the week of June 15 and running through the week of August 3.

Right now, we are actively planning and reworking our curriculum to offer camp in a safe, responsible manner that follows Kentucky’s Healthy at Work guidelines, while still providing fun outdoor activity for campers. To do this, some things may look different at camp this year, including pick-up and drop-off procedures, camp times, and group size. However, we feel that now more than ever, children need access to nature and each other for their physical, social, and emotional health.

We know things can change fast during this pandemic, so we are offering a no-risk enrollment policy. If camp is delayed or canceled, you will receive a full refund. Group size will be extremely limited this summer, so we encourage you to sign up today. Summer camp is one of the most adventurous, energy packed times of the year at The Parklands, and we hope that this summer is no different!
