Winter Camps

Piedmont Wildlife Center’s Wild for A Day day camps at our Durham location. These day camps are outdoor adventures designed to stimulate curiosity and awaken enthusiasm for the natural world. Join us as we explore and deepen our connection to nature and to one another by exploring and discovering the world around us. Listed Camps are for campers ages 5-14.


We offer camps on teacher workdays or holidays when students have the day off from school. These sessions give campers a chance to return to the familiar sights and sounds of Piedmont Wildlife Center in the midst of a busy school year, or for new campers to experience PWC for the first time in one day-long session. We will experience the forest, share stories, and play games. Don’t miss the perfect opportunity to be  here for Wild for a Day Camps!
