2018 Summer Day Camp Blog

Each day, Our educators write about the exciting events that happened at camp!

Find your child's camp and read about what they learned, created, discovered, and more.


The Trailblazers

Our Trailblazers camp provides older children the opportunity to expand their exploration of the Preserve.

Trailblazers get to travel to our Emma Wetlands site which is home of our resident beavers.

They will also explore our new Land O' Lakes meadow restoration site, and see the incredible conservation work underway.

Great Blue Herons

Children are outside for the majority of the camp, and encouraged to get wet and muddy, turn over rocks and logs, climb trees, and play with sticks.

Our professional naturalists and environmental educators facilitate these experiences, and help children discover natural interactions with the outdoors.



Little Blue Herons

Early childhood is a key time for introducing children to nature. Children attending our Little Blue Heron Nature Weeks will learn to explore nature using all of their senses.

Art, music, and imaginative play will fill our mornings as we discover the world in a safe and secure environment.

Afternoon Paint Box Mystery Art Camp

Our Afternoon Paint Box Mystery Art Camp makes each day exciting by including our signature paint box mystery hunt, live drawing process, and creative games with plenty of room for independent design and discovery. Each session ends with a Friday frozen treat as we marvel at all the amazing art we've created to take home!
