This month at camp…

Fall season has begun!

Shorter days, cooler nights and sweatshirts!  The crickets chirp more slowly and the goldenrod is in full bloom.  The donkeys are growing their fizzy coats back again. The berries at the farm are long gone but kale, beets and the odd carroyt are being sampled by students daily.  These are signs that Fall outdoor school is in full swing.

Our Fall season began September 4th 2019 and as always we are busy updating, improving and creating new lessons, new group challenges, new activity spots and working with our great Teacher Naturalist team.  We have two beautiful new pavilions in the upper and lower villages, perfect spots for evening snacks.  Our boardwalk to the campfire site and group challenge field has been widened and now is wheelchair accessible for most manual wheelchairs.  Also two of our lower cabins have been extended to allow for more adult chaperones to stay in those two buildings.

We have a very busy fall but have some openings for day trips for smaller groups.  If you can’t find a fall date that works for you we still have some March days open and a few April dates.

We have funding available to assist Title 1 schools with scholarships for March and April field trips. Call us for more details! Spread the word!!

“To a person uninstructed in natural history, his country or seaside stroll is a walk through a gallery filled with wonderful works of art, nine-tenths of which have their faces turned to the wall.” – Thomas Huxley
