Camp themes are based on the natural communities of wetlands, prairies, and forests and introduce campers to basic ecological principles. Activities include hiking and exploring, hands-on science experiments, and nature play. Camp consists of five programs: Learning Together meets one day per session (for children age 3 through kindergarten with their parents), Young Explorers meet for a 3 day session(for children entering K & 1st), Explorers meet five days per session (for children entering grades 1 through 5), Young Naturalists meet five longer days (for children entering grades 4-8), and Eco-Trekkers meet five days per session (for children in grades 6 through 8). campers may choose extended day programing until 2:00 pm.
