"Welcome to camp" letter and packing list can be found HERE
For children entering grades 3-5 in fall 2022
At the end of a summer day, if a child isn’t dirty, there is something missing. In this camp we will wade into the muddiest habitats in the park with nets, magnifying glasses, and all our senses. We will investigate how different types of mud are created, what lives in the mud, and, of course, play in the mud! Come prepared to get down and dirty... really dirty.
