Durham Summer Camps

2016 Durham Summer Camps

Piedmont Wildlife Center’s acclaimed summer 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.
