Great American Campout


Do you want to know how to camp in the great outdoors, but don’t know how? Join us at Louisville Nature Center and camp with the professionals! This is the perfect opportunity for beginners to take up camping as we will camp out in the LNC backyard and enjoy s’mores, campfires, movies, and more!

This summer, connect with nature like the animals that call it home. Instead of a tent, imagine you’re drifting to sleep in a bird’s cozy treetop nest, or taking a snooze in a beaver’s cool, dark underwater lodge. Ready to hike? Picture yourself springing through the woods like a squirrel in search of your next snack. The National Wildlife Federation’s Great American Campout™ is a summer-long celebration of exploring the wild outdoors through camping that begins June 22nd.
