Survivor Nature and Hiking Camp

Annually one of our most popular camps, Survivor Nature Camp is now BIGGER and BETTER than EVER! As always, campers dunk their heads in waterfalls, sing songs, and play capture the flag. They learn the basics of hiking and backpack preparation. They explore the woods and learn about birds, animals, and trees, learn tracking skills, study bird calls, and research exciting new insects and amphibians. Our curriculum includes the popular group challenges of raft building and shelter building, as well as our famous scavenger hunt!

TRAFFIC ALERT - AUGUST 2020 The Willows Park Entrance will be CLOSED as of Monday, August 3, 2020 through December 2020 (timeline is subject to change) due to the Darby-Paoli Road bridge replacement located just outside the Willows Park entrance on Darby-Paoli Road. Survivor Nature Camp participants should follow the attached (link below) traffic patterns for camper daily drop off and pick up.  Since the bridge is closed, you will not be able to enter if coming from Brooke Road, Church Road, or St. Davids Road - instead, you will need to approach the park using Newtown Road, Sawmill Road, or Godfrey Road.  If you have any questions, please contact Tammy Cohen, Director of Recreation at 610-688-5600, x 141.
