Daily Schedule for Nature Explorer Camps:
The schedule for the older kids can be similar to the younger kids, but they have more flexibility with timing, group decisions on what they are interested in, and more indepth learning. They also spend some time learning some basic survival skills, including safely building a fire (and roasting marshmallows), creating a suitable shelter, and foraging wild plants.
We also spend one day of the week hiking to the Fluvarium and back for a program.
Pick up and drop off times are the same.
