Summer Natural History Adventure camps expose youth to the outdoors with exploration and hands on activities. Campers will learn about native wildlife, plants, and adaptations. There is no substitute for experiencing nature but to hike the trails, search for wildlife, and be stewards of the land. Camps begin with half day camps ( 9 a.m. – Noon) for children entering Kindergarten in the fall of 2020. The remaining camps are full day (9 a.m. – 3 p.m.) for students entering 1st – 6th grade. The age groups are Kindergarten, 1st and 2nd graders, 3rd and 4th graders, and 5th and 6th graders. Each group will have a 4 day camp (Tues- Fri) in June and July. Topics include Wild Animal Homes and becoming a Knee-High Naturalist for the Kindergarten group. For 1st and 2nd Graders, they will learn about legends & myths about our local wildlife. The second camp, they will learn about how we can coexist with local wildlife. The 3rd and 4th graders will spend their camp learning about nature networks and how wildlife share resources. The second camp, they will learn about all forms of wildlife that scales, shells, exoskeletons, and protective armor. The older students in 5th and 6th grade will adventure out and learn about how our habitats are affected by wind, fire, and water. The second week, campers will learn what it means to “go green” with hands on activities.
