Campfires

The whole family is invited to join in our campfires, for lots of old-fashioned fun. You’ll hear campfire stories, may meet some animal guests, play games, sing songs and, of course, enjoy S’mores! Each campfire has a nature theme and promises to entertain.

Campfires will be held either at Gulf Branch Nature Center, 3608 Military Rd., or Long Branch Nature Center, 625 S Carlin Springs Rd. Registration is required, and campfires will not be held in inclement weather.
