Join us under the stars for a night of camping, tours, s’mores and more! The National Wildlife Federation’s Great American Campout is a celebration of camping as a way to connect with nature and wildlife.
The benefits from outdoor play for mind, body and spirit are well-documented and help to create a lasting connection to nature and wildlife that promote happiness and good health.
Temple University Ambler EarthFest and the Ambler Arboretum are excited to host this campout for new and experienced campers. Spend the night tent camping, go on nature walks, and enjoy s’mores by the campfire. We look forward to helping people connect with nature and exposing them to the wonder of TempleAmbler and the Arboretum.
