At Camp Creek Run we offer environmental education field trips to schools for grades K-12. Educators can choose from one of our many themes, or we can work with teachers to design a program tied directly into your classroom's curriculum. Programs will be developmentally appropriate as per age and grade, and will include elements of science, nature observation, and outdoor adventure.
To inquire, please call Executive Director Keara R. Giannotti at 856-596-4250 or email us.
