Become a true Critter Camper! Join us from 8:00am to 4:00pm daily for a summer of exploration, creativity, and connection with nature. The cost is $250/child for the week—get ready to dive into the fun and discover the magic of wetlands with Critter Camp!

At Critter Camp, kids will explore the fascinating world of pond life, wetland habitats, and the amazing critters that call these places home. From frogs and turtles to dragonflies and birds, every day will be filled with exciting discoveries and hands-on activities.

Our campers will embark on nature expeditions to observe pond ecosystems, identify native plants, and learn about the unique creatures that thrive in wetland environments. Guided by experienced counselors, they’ll uncover the secrets of glass lizards, indigo snakes, and other rare species that inhabit our natural landscapes.

But the fun doesn’t stop there! Critter Camp is all about engaging with nature through creative games and educational adventures. Campers will enjoy activities like Nature Bingo, Pond Water Exploration with microscopes, and Pond Life Scavenger Hunts to discover hidden treasures around our wetlands.

Imagine crafting bird feeders, building fairy houses, and painting rocks with colorful designs—all while surrounded by the sights and sounds of the great outdoors. With Nature Olympics, Nature Journals, and even a Nature Relay Race featuring plant identification and animal tracking challenges, every day promises new excitement and learning opportunities.

As part of our commitment to conservation, campers will also participate in activities like Trash Clean-Up and planting native species to enhance our wetland ecosystem. Through hands-on projects and engaging discussions, they’ll gain a deeper appreciation for nature and learn how to protect our environment.

Join us at Critter Camp for a summer of exploration, creativity, and connection with the natural world. Let’s dive into the fun and discover the magic of wetlands together! 🌊🌱🐢
