Nature Discovery Camp

Nature Discovery Camps

Nature discovery camps will utilitize the many natural resources the York County Parks has to offer to create a greater appreciation for the outdoors. Through hiking, water exploration, creative projects, and more our campers will discover the many wonders of nature. We believe outdoor exploration and play makes children smarter, healthier, and better problem solvers. 

Camp registration for 2021 begins January 19th for park members and February 2nd for non-members. Click here to become a park member.  Click here to go to registration website: COMING SOON!
