You will need an email address and your child’s current health information. If the online registration indicates that a camp is full, you can put your child on the waiting list or choose a different session.

Come Celebrate 25 Years...
of educating urban youth, preserving the land, connecting people to nature and bringing communities together! We’ve been called Milwaukee’s best hidden gem, but we don’t want to be hidden any longer! Just like the rivers, valleys and green space surrounding our three branches, treasure awaits if someone will only show you the way!
All proceeds from the event directly support the Center’s mission and help to bring the wonders of our urban landscape to more students, families and neighborhoods.
