Or check out Where the Wild Things Are during which campers can explore the diversity of animals that call the mountains home and their specialized adaptations to thrive and survive in their environments.
Appreciate Natural World
Summer science campers will spend their week exploring, hiking and learning in the beautiful surroundings and making new friends. Camp sessions highlight natural history, sustainability and STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) topics that are geared toward helping campers develop an understanding and appreciation of the natural world. Sessions are hands-on, age-appropriate and taught by environmental educators that make learning safe and fun.
