Summer Nature Camp
July 10, 2017 @ 9:00 am - July 14, 2017 @ 3:00 pm
Your kids will have a blast learning about nature, the environment, science, and art at Cylburn Arboretum this summer.
Each week there are two age-specific sessions: one for children ages 5 to 7 and the second for ages 8 to 11. Each session runs from 9am to 3pm, with options for early dropoff and late pickup for an additional fee.
Cylburn’s Nature Camp focuses on the environment and teaches children (5-11 year olds) knowledge of and respect for Nature and their surroundings. They will explore our 200-acre park with counselors who will teach them about the plants and animals they encounter, fungi, weather, watershed issues, ecosystem balances, and more! Children hike the trails, participate in science-oriented mini classes, and partake in activities that combine science with art: homemade sundials, insect houses, and optical illusion spinners, to name a few. Throughout a week-long session, activities are mixed with eco-oriented games and lunch locales set in our different gardens. Some activities are grouped by age/knowledge level. Join the fun and watch your children learn to be good stewards of our environment.
We are pleased to offer before and after care again in 2017. Pick up and drop off will be from the mansion. Only campers enrolled in full day camps are able to participate in before and after care. Children will not be able to be dropped off before 8 a.m. After 5 p.m. a late charge of $1 a minute will be charged. Late payments will be due Friday afternoon of the camp week.
