Summer Camps 2015

Every day is an adventure as our campers become scientists as they use their powers of observation in the classroom and on the trail to learn about the world around them. Each day brings new adventures in outdoor experiences, children’s literature, free-choice learning, art projects and more! Snacks are provided. Campers must bring their own sack lunch.
