 Week 7: July 13-17  Virtual Only 

Join us for Bird Week for an exploration of the birds near and far!  Has your camper every wondered what birds are singing outside, why and how they are colored the way they are, or how ducks dry off after a good swim?  This is the camp for them! We will go in-depth into bird coloration and feather mechanics, play games based on bird migration, and create themed crafts - feather mobiles, clay birds, woven “nests,” and more. They will even learn how to identify common birds by sound!

 Week 8: July 20-24 & Week 9: July 27-31 Virtual Only 

Beast week campers will embark on an investigation of fantastic creatures of the world whether furred, finned, or scaled.  This is the week for the camper that is overflowing with questions and stories about the natural world!  There is no question too weird and wacky – bring them all!  Not only will we be learning about animal adaptations and how to tell what animals are nearby just from their footprints, we will also be looking into folklore and the incredible creatures that often were the inspiration for those tall tales!  Creative campers can play storytelling games at the end of every day and come away with stories they have written and illustrated inspired by the fantastic creatures of our world.
