There are overwhelming benefits of outdoor education. According to the National Wildlife Federation, outdoor education and outdoor playtime improves classroom performance and standardized test scores, increases motivation and enthusiasm to learn, helps students concentrate for longer periods of time, and improves classroom behavior.
Let the ENC help you reap the rewards by enrolling in Spring Break Camp! From April 10 to 13, the ENC will welcome students from Kindergarten to 6th grade to participate in exciting, age appropriate hands-on activities.
During each day of camp, campers will be able to explore the trails and grounds of the ENC led by experienced Camp Teachers, most of whom are our very own Naturalists! Campers rotate between three camp teachers and will be divided into groups based on grade level to give them activities that will appropriately challenge and engage them.
Every day of Spring Break Camp is themed, so campers take part in a wide range of activities such as learning about wildlife, conducting experiments, creating crafts and playing games.
Enroll today to experience nature up close! Full day camps, 9 am to 3 pm, and half day camps, 9 am to 1 pm, are available. Register now at encenter.org to spend spring break having fun surrounded by nature!
