Event Description

Half- & Full-Day Camps:
Explore wetlands, woodlands, & lake during our week-long ecology camps with hands-on activities & live wild animal experiences. Ages 4-13. June 27-August 12. Different sessions available for each age group.

June 27-July 1: Polliwogs (Ages 5-6). Here’s a way to open the eyes of young ones to the wonders of nature. For three hours each day, budding naturalists will enjoy nature filled activities using all of their senses.  You will explore the    natural world around you through play, walks, stories, games, and crafts.

Forest Frolic (Ages 7-8). Discover what's lurking in the Pine Barrens. You'll discover what it feels like to be animals surviving in the woods. You'll look for the things that make the Pine Barrens special. Flip over rocks and logs as you look for hidden wildlife treasures. You'll be shocked by the exciting creatures we find.

Wild 4 Wildlife (Ages 9-10). Have you ever wondered what goes on in your own backyard when you're not looking? You will work together with your team to discover who is living right under your nose and how people interact with them in their homes. Using the creative minds of your team, you will create solutions and learn how to be an ambassador for the animals.

About the Refuge

Missions:
Cedar Run Refuge was founded in the late 1950s by the Woodford family and incorporated as a nonprofit in 1981 for:
•Wildlife Rehabilitation
•Environmental Education
•Habitat Preservation

Facilities:
•174 wooded acres surrounding pristine Cedar Run Lake
•Wildlife rehabilitation hospital and outdoor live-animal compound
•Woodford Environmental Education Center with classrooms, hands-on exhibits, library and offices
•Wooded nature trails that link uplands and wetlands

Education:
More than 19,000 children participate annually in the Refuge’s education programs and hundreds more join outdoor adventures in the Pine Barrens and attend family weekend workshops. Programs include group tours, Refuge on Wheels, weekend workshops for families, field trips and adult courses.

Wildlife Rehabilitation:
Nearly 4,000 wild animals were treated at the rehab hospital yearly with about 40% returning safely to the wild. Others, whose injuries prevent release, remain in our outdoor wildlife housing area to help the public learn about native species.

Habitat Conservation:
Through the New Jersey Green Acres Program the Woodford Family has preserved 171 of Cedar Run’s acres for future generations. We are working with state and local agencies and private non-profits to create a Greenway across the southern parts of Medford and Evesham townships, adjacent to our southern boundary.
