Students and their families join life-long learners to explore the wonders of nature--- and creeks--- at their own residential camp!  Family Creek Camp activities take place on the beautiful Allegheny College campus and in local creeks within the amazing French Creek watershed.  All activities are for ALL ages and there is time for relaxing with the other campers.


Your family is welcome whether you're mom, dad and the kids; grandparents and grandchildren; aunt and uncles with nieces and nephews; or lifelong learners.  Family Creek Camp is a great way for family to spend quality time together, whether you see each other every day or haven't been together for a long time.  Adults without children are always welcome.  The only requirement is an interest in learning more about creeks and the natural environment.


Spend time with other families... learning about and enjoying the natural world... with an all-inclusive package.  There's so much to discover!
