Register Now for the Great American Campout at the New Canaan Nature Center

Register now for the Great American Campout at the New Canaan Nature Center. It's NCNC's 8th year participating in the National Wildlife Federation's Great American Campout, a nation-wide celebration of camping as a way to connect to nature & wildlife.

Spend a unique evening and night here at the New Canaan Nature Center, under the stars and with the night creatures (all harmless). Participants are welcome to set-up their tents in the afternoon between 3:30-5:30 P.M. From 5:30-7:30 P.M., they'll provide a classic camping-style barbecue dinner of hotdogs, grilled corn & chips (with watermelon for dessert). Lemonade and water will be available for all ages; adults are welcome to BYOB. As folks are finishing up the tasty treats from the grill, all are invited to enjoy field games, music and all around fun on the Green!

As the sun begins to set, get ready for the night time adventure to begin. We'll fire up the campfire ring and head off into the darkness for a special early summer night hike experience. Upon our return we'll be sure to fill our bellies with some fireside S'mores before dozing off to sleep.

In the morning, awake to fog over the meadow, deer browsing nearby and the promise of another magical day! A light breakfast of bagels, juice, and coffee will also be served.

Bring your own camp gear and snacks. Access to bathrooms will be available through the night.
