Camp Warner Park loves connecting kids with nature! Every day at Camp is filled with imaginative play, learning in the Nature Center, splashing in the creek, meeting local wildlife, and more! Camp Warner Park is a place where your child’s creativity and imagination can run wild!

We take time for children to play together in collaborative and imaginative ways.  The camp day is unstructured and unscheduled by design.  This allows the caring staff to take time for the children to play to get to know each other, learn to talk and listen to others, to have child-directed activities and to play as long as the children are engaged.  With this structure we can also work through conflicts to help children understand appropriate behavior, arming them with words and self control to handle conflict situations rather than resorting to anger, violence and meltdowns.

Camp Warner Park is one of the summer camps offered from Leadership Academy.

Let the Adventure begin!

We believe that every child needs time outdoors in nature to play in an imaginative way.

This kind of play increases creativity, confidence, social intelligence and grit.

Our staff facilitate outdoor play while focusing on safety and building friendships.

My son LOVED Camp Warner. He talked about it for weeks after, especially all the information at the learned from ‘the Snake Lady’

Camp Warner Park believes in supporting education, conservation and volunteerism to the parks, $10 of every camp registration goes to support Friends of Warner Parks.
