Jr. Naturalists Summer Camp: Nature
When you look out the window, what do you see? Nature! Do you ever wonder how all of the natural systems work together? You’ll focus on the components of the local habitats to guide young naturalists through an exploration of plant and animal life cycles, forest ecology, pollination and birds. As a special treat, the “frozen stage” of the water cycle will be utilized to create homemade ice cream for all to share! That’s using nature to make happy humans! Each morning will include lessons, a story and crafts, a short hike and snack time.
