Twilight Camp

Twilight is a special time when nature's day shift gives way to the night shift. Twilight camp offers the unique experience of exploring the woods and fields during the "in-between" time. Activities include evening hikes through the woods, games and nature projects. The week culminates in a family campfire night, complete with a campfire, 'smores, storytelling, a night hike and star-gazing. This is for children entering grades 3 through 6. Advance registration is required. Call 630-444-3190 or email programs@kaneforest.com to register.
