Hands-on learning through FUN!

Have fun outdoors every day,  experience nature and make new friends! Join us for guided nature walks to discover biodiversity in our nature preserves. Campers become Junior Naturalists as they create nature art, record scientific observations, identify native plants and animals while having amazing hands-on experiences. Learn how to catch water bugs and fish with nets, where to look for snakes, how bees make honey, how plants have different seeds and so much more!

All activities are age appropriate and designed for fun and hands-on learning. Groups are small with adult leadership.
