Give your child the opportunity to experience, discover and explore the great outdoors! These week-long day camp sessions focus on different nature-related themes with hands-on science investigations, art, song, hiking and more - they won't realize they are learning while having so much fun!
- Small groups: Only 3-4 campers per counselor
- Inclusive environment: Each camper gets individualized attention and encouragement
- Cross-curricular (FUN!) learning: Each camp incorporates art, structured and unstructured play, music, and theme related science experiments.
How do birds fly and what are barbules? Why did birds migrate and how do they do it? We’re pulling out the binoculars and going birding! Do you know the order of the honeybee hive? Or why honeybees dance? Get your insect nets and bug viewers because we're going on a scavenger hunt! See as an insect sees and learn about compound eyes, metamorphosis, and all the different types of insects. Explore creatures with wings through lenses, nets, song, games and crafts for a hooting good time.
