Join us under the stars for a night of camping, tours, s’mores and more!

The Temple Ambler Campout is returning to campus this fall! The Campout is a celebration of camping as a way to connect with nature and wildlife. The benefits from outdoor play for mind, body and spirit are well-documented and foster lasting bonds that promote happiness and good health.

Temple University Ambler EarthFest will host the Temple Ambler Campout in person from 2 p.m. Saturday, September 21 through 10 a.m. Sunday, September 22. The Campout is being held in partnership with the Temple Ambler Field Station, the Ambler Arboretum of Temple University, and Recreation, Outdoor Education & Wellness at Temple Ambler.

We invite you to spend the evening on nature walks, taking part in camping workshops, stargazing, make s'mores at the campfire and sleeping in the great outdoors!

The Temple Ambler Campout is being held in tandem with Temple Ambler EarthFest: The Science of Scary this year, which will be held from 3:30 to 5:30 p.m. on September 21! Connect with the world around you by learning about animals and insects such as arachnids, snakes, carnivorous plants, skunks, lizards, and “monsters” of the deep! Learn more

We look forward to engaging our wider community, helping our campers ground themselves, and providing a solid foundation for those roots to grow.
