Summer Nature Camp Week 5

July 8 – July 12

Theme: Games Galore!

In addition to classic nature camp activities, Games Galore campers play and learn lots of outdoor games! With a focus on team building, this session teaches some new and lesser known games, as well as the beloved nature center classics. With a little imagination and collaboration, maybe we’ll even make up our own!
