Summer Nature Camp Week 6

July 15 – July 19

Theme: Cold Blooded Creatures

In addition to classic nature camp activities, Cold-Blooded Creatures campers take an in-depth look at what sets cold blooded animals like reptiles and amphibians apart from other animals. Meet resident snakes, frogs and turtles up close and search the Nature Center habitats for animals in different stages of development.

Classic Camps

Join us at the Nature Center for a week of outdoor fun! Each morning we’ll start off with free play as campers arrive and check in. Throughout the day, campers will hike, have live animal encounters, and participate in games and activities that relate to the theme of the week.  Please provide a morning snack, non-perishable lunch, water bottle and change of clothes.  Sturdy shoes that can get wet and muddy are essential at camp! No crocs or flip flops.
