Let your child experience naturalist led fun in Bidwell Park!
Centered at the Chico Creek Nature Center in the heart of Bidwell Park, Camp Chico Creek is an environmental education-based day camp for children 5 to 11 years old. The programs are designed to provide outdoor recreation activities and foster awareness of nature in a fun, safe, and caring setting. Themes covering Park habitats and their natural and cultural histories are presented to the campers during each session.
We have trained staff and interns that promote fairness and encourage a spirit of cooperation in play. We think you’ll find that Camp Chico Creek offers a healthy and convenient way for children to make new friends and have fun in beautiful Bidwell Park.
Day Camps run 7:45am to 5:30pm. Evening/parent's night out camps with later hours. Campers may be dropped off and picked up at any time within camp hours. Main day camp activities, naturalist presentation, animal visits and crafts happen between 9am and 4pm. *Campers will be required to buy/wear a camp T-shirt for $8 (same shirt as summer camp).
