Dunwoody Nature Center’s outdoor summer camps at Island Ford are week-long, nature-themed day camp experiences for children ages 9-13. Combining traditional day camp fun and sleepaway camp activities, we offer the best of both worlds to kids of all backgrounds. We frequently hear from campers that their experience at Island Ford is their favorite camp of the summer!
A rotating set of themed camps keeps kids engaged in age-appropriate activities that inspire a love of nature through exciting adventures in the great outdoors. Campers are engaged with advanced activities like canoeing, hiking, and science-based nature surveilling at our Island Ford campus at the Chattahoochee National Recreation Area. Our small class sizes and emphasis on learning through play make our camps some of the most popular in the Dunwoody, Sandy Springs, Brookhaven, Alpharetta, and Roswell areas; we welcome campers from all around the Atlanta metro area.
