Nature and Science Camps

Kids are inspired to explore our natural environment and delight in the wonders of discovery.

Updated program information for 2019 will be available in January. Please check back.

Critters and Crawlers Camp

Campers become “Eco-Explorers” as they investigate the natural surroundings at camp. We will take forest treks, prairie walks and beach tours to explore our local wildlife. Activities include: bug safaris, nature hunt, create a critter from litter and more!

Farm and Garden Camp

Kids working the farm will explore gardens, fields, and pastures. Young farmers experience the daily routines of feeding and caring for farm animals. Campers discover how plants, animals, soil and people work together to produce the food that we eat every day. Plus they’ll learn what it means to be a good steward in this unique farming experience.

Fishing Camp

Kids get hooked on fishing as they learn basic fishing skills. Lakes provide the scene for fishing fun using the catch-and-release method. Campers can bring their own pole and tackle, or equipment will be provided.

Full Steam Ahead Camp

This camp is perfect for our young scholars who are passionate about Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Mathematics. Campers will spend the week engaged in hands on, interactive projects. We will figure out how things work and why it’s important. Activities may include Legos, robotics, science experiments, plus more! There will be lots of learning, using their imaginations, and exploring the indoors and outdoors at camp!

Outdoor Living Skills Camp

Kids develop their outdoor living skills in this exciting, hands-on specialty camp! Campers discover the finer points of preparing for a big outdoor adventure. Participants will learn a variety of useful camping skills that may include building a fire, making camp shelters, knot tying, campfire cooking and more!
