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 help promote happiness and good health.
Temple University Ambler is excited to host a campout for new and experienced campers. Spend the night tent camping, go on nature walks, and enjoy stargazing. We look forward to helping people connect with nature and exposing them to the wonder of Temple University Ambler and the Ambler Arboretum.
The Great American Campout at Temple University Ambler will begin on Saturday, July 18, at 2 p.m. and conclude Sunday, July 19, by 10 a.m. Please note: Individuals under the age of 18 must be accompanied by an adult.
