This one and a half hour camp allows parents and children aged 2 -5 years to experience nature and wildlife through animal presentations, guided walks, games, crafts, scavenger hunts, carousel rides, puppet shows and so much more.  F.A.W.N. camps are an excellent way to increase your young child’s awareness of the natural world around them.

*Online registrations close two days before for each Fawn camp. We do not offer "day before" registration. If you miss the sign-up for a camp, we hope you consider signing up for the following week's Fawn camp!
