What better way to experience the outdoors than at the Eldersburg Adventure Camp at Piney Run Park? Campers experience all that nature has to offer at Carroll County’s most welcoming park and a schedule packed with fun and adventure. Campers enjoy being grouped by age into groups including Clownfish, Big Tunas, Barracudas, and Narwhals.
ABC Care Eldersburg Adventure Camp is a fully outdoor program with activities held under a pavilion and on picnic tables. The air-conditioned Piney Run Park Nature Center is utilized during occurrences of Code Red and severe weather alerts.
Mondays are STEM Days! Campers enjoy a variety of STEM based activities including art projects, nature hikes and fort building.
On Tuesdays, we visit the Pearl Stone Conference & Retreat Center for free-swim, swim lessons, a water slide, and Splash ‘N’ Play (Weeks 1-11)
Wednesday is Sports Day! Campers enjoy a rotation of fishing and paddle boating. We also feature instruction on different sports including soccer, basketball, kickball, wiffleball and tennis. There’s always a related art project and fun team events! Campers also cool off on Wednesdays with a visit from the Kona Ice Truck!
On Thursday Field Trip Days, we venture to a local venue for a fun filled day of bowling, ice skating, roller skating, mini golf or Players Fun Zone.
