Summer camp is back at this year’s L.A. County Fair, which runs Sept. 10-26. Fairguests can hike, discover, learn and enjoy the great outdoors at Camp Wilderness located in California’s Heritage Square presented by The Gas Company.
Camp Wilderness, allows children and adults to explore majestic forests, discover woodland creatures, acquire survival skills and learn about the environment and how to protect our local forests.
Make a stop at Camp Wilderness village, where hikers and brave explorers are counseled by friendly rangers for their journey into the forest.
Fairguests will experience towering trees, weaving trails and the sounds of chirping crickets and birds as they make their journey through the forest.
Along their adventure, visitors can hike to Creature Canyon and view real creatures that live in the forest. Fairguests can peek inside a pond to see crawdads, fresh-water fish, turtles, frogs and snails. They can also dig in forest soil to uncover important members of the forest, the creepy crawlers and bugs.
A visit to Creature Canyon and the Wilderness Wall offers a peek at the forest residents, prairie dogs, salamanders, newts, tree frogs and spiders all in a realistic natural habitat.
