Nature Camp at Cromwell Valley Park

Stroll through the stream, dig in the garden and explore the meadows and forest trails of the Lime Kiln Valley at Cromwell Valley Park. Children will meet and learn about animals, both wild and domesticated, enjoy children’s garden activities and receive an abundance of outdoor knowledge that includes ecology and natural history. All of the week’s activities will be geared to the age range of the children. No two seasons at CVP Summer Camp are alike!

Baltimore County Department of Recreation and Parks self regulates their summer camps and meets the regulations, requirements, and standards of a Maryland COMAR certified camp.

This year, we offer four different camps.
