This is the camp for young gardeners! Children will hike, play and explore while learning how to work with the earth to produce both beauty and food. Children will discover what the term “Garden to Table” really means through the hands-on experience of working in a fruit and vegetable garden and making something healthy and delicious from the plants they helped to grow. Camp includes lessons and hands-on experiences as well as garden and water exploration time in Waterfall Junction, the new children’s garden at Riverbanks.
Did you know that birds and bats are not the only frequent flyers in the animal kingdom? Come soar with us as we explore the wonders of ballooning, gliding, parachuting and flying. Discover how aerodynamics makes aviation possible for some unlikely creatures in this fun-filled camp.
It’s a messy job, but someone’s got to do it — and we are not talking about shoveling poop! Whether they are farmers, butchers, builders, beauticians or interior decorators, animals are some of the hardest workers on the planet, and they don’t even get a vacation! Come job shadow ants, lions and cleaning wrasse this summer as we learn what it takes for these workaholics to succeed. You may even pick up a few job skills along the way!
