Calling all explorers! Join us for one to four action-packed weeks of outdoor adventures, exploring the natural environments of four unique Pierce County parks. Hands-on activities, exploration, free-play, and outdoor games will be incorporated each day to help nurture a desire for caring and respect for our natural and human-made environments. 


Each park’s unique features and opportunities will guide each camp’s experience. Campers will need to come with water bottles, lunch, snacks, backpack, change of clothes, jacket, sun protection (hat, sunscreen, glasses), and dress according to weather conditions.
