Kids Summer Nature Camps in Broadlands
Creature Feature: June 20-24 – 9am-noon
Meet a live animal every day in this exciting camp! We will investigate the differences between wild animals and pets, including their different adaptations. Before we meet our live guest, we will practice safe handling and how to respect our new acquaintances. We’ll finish every day seeing and touching the animal we have learned so much about!
See the forest through storybook eyes. We will visit the forest, pond and meadow to experience the “real life” world introduced in such stories as "The Mitten" and "The Lorax". Let your imagination soar as we read stories, then create our own versions in the natural world around us.
CAMPS FOR 6-7 YEAR OLDS
Animal Safari: June 20-24 – 1pm-4pm
Put on your explorer hat, grab a pair of binoculars (or a magnifying glass) and prepare for adventure! We will go on the hunt…exploring the habitats in Broadlands. We will seek our treasures and trophies at the pond, the forest and the meadow and have fun tracking big, and little animals.
Nature By Design: June 27-July 1 – 9am-noon
Have you ever been inspired by a rainbow, snail shell, or leaf? Experience the beauty of the natural world in this camp. We will discover how nature uses symmetry, texture, and color. Using observation and tools such as magnifying glasses and binoculars, we’ll uncover art in nature. We will also study artwork by natural and earth artists to help inspire our own creations!
