Piedmont Wildlife Center’s acclaimed summer camps are also available at Umstead State Park. 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.
