Nature Explorers: Cycles Galore


About the Camp


How do caterpillars turn into butterflies? Why do trees lose their leaves each year? Where does water go after it rains? What do plants need in order to grow? By exploring the cycles of nature, campers will unlock mysteries of the world around them. Campers will get the chance to dive into lab experiments to discover the science behind natural phenomena, and they'll also get hands-on experience as they search for these phenomena in the great outdoors. Come and explore with us!
