  • The trails are well kept and the play area outside is great for kids. My child has really loved the summer camp so far. Very nice staff.
  • A nice nature center and they host kids birthday party, there are some trails surrounding the nature center building, lots of trees, shade and a nice super fun nature playground. I just had my son birthday party there and everyone had a blast, do the birthday naturally! I would recommend.
