“This was my son’s favorite camp, and mine too. I love that  the counselors are all over 18, and that each day he came home telling me about something new he learned or did. Bravo, EnviroVentures!” - Caroline, Mother of EnviroVentures Camper

Piedmont Park Camp Fit

Camp Fit group on the Visitor Center Veranda.
Camper’s ages 10-13 can spend their days in the park this summer participating in sports and learning about healthy living. Each week is filled with 5 days of outdoor activity including swimming, team sports, yoga, calisthenics and nutritional education.

Campers will spend time in our Education Garden learning about fruits and vegetables grown here in the park.  Cooking activities will allow campers to practice creating their own healthy snacks.  With a focus on the science of fitness and how food fuels us, campers are sure to enjoy this active and engaging camp.  This program has the same hours and carpool location as EnviroVentures, making it a great option for camp families with older children.

Be sure to review our Parent Handbook to become familiar with camp rules and policies.  Our cancellation policies were updated last year.  Please be sure you are aware of these policies before finalizing your registration.
