Connections Camp

Give the Gift of Nature to a Child

Each summer, Metroparks Toledo partners with community organizations and local area schools to bring over 500 children growing up in disadvantaged communities to nature camp—completely free of charge!

The week long Metroparks camp provides immersive experiences, including kayaking, stand-up paddle boarding, archery, fishing and outdoor survivor skills. Campers participate in hands-on-science projects, games, crafts and songs. They leave Connections Camp with new skills, confidence, experiences in nature and treasured memories. Metroparks’ vision is to reach over 5,000 children in Lucas County by 2020.

“There is a special bond between a person and the park they walk, run, bike or relax in. Many times, that bond starts when they are a child.”
