Day-off Camp: Nature Ninjas

When schools are closed, we’re open! Bring your kids to the Schuylkill Center for a day of fun and exploration. Travel silently and unseen through the forest while practicing spatial awareness and navigation skills.  Solve nature puzzles and team challenges, go on a series of adventures, and figure out which other animals are active outdoors in the winter. Please bring a packed lunch and a water bottle. Wear weather-appropriate clothing. Extended day until 6:00 pm is available for an additional $15/day.

Winter Bird Census


Winter is a great time for bird watching. Birds need to be active and feeding to stay warm and they become easier to observe along the trails once the leaves fall. Beginners pair up with experienced birders to continue our annual tradition of monitoring the species richness and abundance of birds that winter in our fields and forests. All of the information we collect will be shared with other citizen scientists, helping us understand how our local bird populations change over time. Warm drinks and snacks provided.   

Participation in the Winter Bird Census is FREE; registration is requested. If there is inclement weather, the event will be rescheduled.
