This year’s themes:
Into the Wild
Learn to live in the outdoors! Campers will learn to pitch your own tents, use a compass, tie the King of Knots (the bowline) and a square knot, and build and light a fire. This class will create a desire to connect with nature that can only be found away from civilization.
We will explore the microscopic world! Using microscopes we will observe and examine every little thing we can find at the ENC from microscopic creatures in our pond water to beautiful crystals. Campers will learn how to use the microscopes, create slides and explore our world on a very tiny scale!
H2knOw (Wacky Water-wise)
Campers, through activities and play, will become more water-wise about the wacky, wet stuff. We will look at the sources of the water we use and delve into some very peculiar properties it has. Inquiries about the water cycle, and its various stages, will lead to creating clouds-in-a-jar and making mementos to remind them of their travels as water droplets. Campers will tackle water pollution both globally and locally (at the ENC!).
Celebrating Ceremonies(After Camp)
Celebrate the art of ancient ceremonies. After creating a symbol of their spirit animal, campers will hone in on how ancient cultures celebrated ceremonies. Through legends, mask making, and hiking stick carving, campers will relive the magic of ancient cultures, then invite parents to celebrate in a campfire ceremony on the last day.
Spectacular Senses(After Camp)
Your senses are amazing! With their eyes, ears, noses, mouths and fingertips, after-campers will explore the world around them. Get ready to dive into a world of colors, find a bugs favorite flower, blind taste test some sweet treats, write in Braille and discover how animals move so quietly.
