Another year of Teatown camp has drawn to a close. It’s been a wonderful summer and our campers learned a great deal about the world around them. From setting camera traps to making art from weeds and thorns to exploring new trails and getting an up-close view at native animals, it’s been an adventure and discovery-filled summer.

  Summer Camp 2014 registration will begin in January 2014. We look forward to another great year!
