FAMILY CAMP OUT
August 18th – Sign up HERE>>
COMING TO THE CAMP OUT TONIGHT? Since we are expecting thunderstorms until 6 pm we recommend that you do not pitch your tent until the storms have passed. We’ll open the nature center for meeting the animals around 6:30 pm and light the fire pit around 7.
Every month now through October, we will have two Friday campouts per month. This will allow you to come and pitch a tent, enjoy S’mores and a fire pit, come inside and pet the animals and have bedtime stories. You can come to the Nature Center lawn and pitch your tent at 4:00pm, but we don’t light the fire until around 7:00pm. Kids have night games in the lawn and, when the weather is hot, we get out all of the water toys. If you want to come and enjoy the evening but don’t have the camping equipment we would love to have you. Costs are only $10.00 per family. These costs remain the same if you camp out or not as they cover the wood and marshmallows.

As a new service to the community, we are offering full-day Nature Center Adventures on Monday holidays. We know everyone doesn’t get the day off; and if the kids have a holiday from school it should be fun and memorable. The programs will be held outdoors as much as possible, dress accordingly. Grades 3rd-5th have the opportunity of doing animal care training and becoming part of our Youth Naturalist program. All participants will take part in animal care, nature learning, scavenger hunts; learning through creating, and games. Hours for this program are the same as the school, 7:45am – 2:45pm, with options to lengthen if needed. Price per day is $50.00 with a reduction of $40.00 per child if multiple children are enrolled. These programs include all of the materials, but none of the food (please send a packed lunch with your child). The ratio of instructor to participants will never be greater than 1:12, 24 students maximum. Youth Naturalist interns will be present to support animal care training and interactions as well as to facilitate team games.
IF WE DO NOT GET A MINIMUM OF 8 PARTICIPANTS, THE PROGRAM WILL BE CANCELLED AND YOU WILL BE NOTIFIED PRIOR TO THE PROGRAM DATE.
