Piedmont Wildlife Center, in partnership with Orange County, bring our acclaimed summer camps to their new park, Blackwood Farm!

Our camps offer unique opportunities for children to explore the outdoors, to play, to learn, to be challenged and to grow. We harness the powers of creativity and community to nourish each child, allowing them to deepen their sense of belonging with themselves, with one another, and within the world of nature.  These camps are designed for campers ages 7-12. 

Returning users: Please note that we are using a new registration system and you will have to create a new log-in account.
