About the Camp

What kinds of bugs live underwater?  Can plants survive in the desert? How is a forest different from a grassland? Join us for Nature Explorers: Habitat Quest and find out! Campers will explore local and exotic habitats reaching from the bottom of the river to the top of the trees on their journey to discover what makes each of these ecosystems unique. Camp days will include laboratory lessons on the science of the natural world, as well as hands-on activities and field trips to search for examples in the great outdoors. Come and explore with us! This is a four-day camp (no camp on Thursday, July 4th).
