Themed Birthday Parties

Birthday parties at Croydon Creek feature a fun-filled hour-long program led by a naturalist and are best suited for children ages 3 and older, with some parties designed for older children. Parties can accommodate up to 25 guests.

Each party consists of both an indoor and outdoor learning experience, unless otherwise noted. In the event of inclement weather, alternate arrangements will be made for outdoor activities.

The birthday child receives one Wild Party T-shirt and each party guest will receive a special nature craft to take home. Nature-themed goody bags can be added for an additional fee. Your total access time to the party room is 2.5 hours – this time includes set-up, your wild party and take-down.

Parties are available year-round. Call or email to check date availability.
