EcoKids Nature Preschool 

We offer a year-round program series for pre-schoolers and kindergartenders called EcoKids, which is designed to connect the children with the natural world. For ages 3-6, these child/caregiver classes use nature study, exploration, stories, and crafts to encourage an environmental sensibility and sense of wonder.  Our fall and spring series occur outdoors at camp, and our winter series is held indoors in our administrative offices.  Each class includes a hike on our trails weather-permitting.

 

Classes are $5 per child and lasts about an hour. Spring, fall, and winter series are each 6-8 weeks long. Please call 856-596-4250 or email campcreekrun@yahoo.com to inquire about dates and registration.
