Last year’s themes:

The Seuss is Loose at the ENC Campamoose!

The exploration, invention, construction, and heart of Dr. Seuss is brought to life in this session. Spring Break will be couched in some of his best works, then campers will get out and put what they’ve learned to the test in a very authentic, hands-on approach. Give the campers a chance to grow, and there’s no telling the places they’ll go!

Hurray for Spring!

It’s a time for birds, bees, flowers and trees. Butterflies and color galore, freshness all around and more, more, more. Pollinators will play and dance, nectar in blooms and romance. Hurray I say, hurray for spring.

Everything is green, green, green!

Campers will embrace Spring by learning about pollinators and flowers and many things spring through creativity, learning, play, hands on experience and more.

Past, Present and Future

Campers will learn a little about the history of Earth and its animals through fossils. They will discover how those fossils contributed to todays fuels (fossil fuels) and why it is important to use less and less of them. Campers will learn about other sources of energy, and come up with creative ways to change the way we use energy in the future.

ENC Olympics

(After Camp, younger campers)

Full Day campers will learn Olympic flag history, make their own flags and run a torch through the ENC! Our little Olympians will create and play on a Nature Obstacle Course. We’ll look at Guinness Book of World Records books, and try to break an ENC record. Who can balance the longest? Stack the tallest? Beat Sarah at table tennis? The week will end with an Awards Ceremony. Medals will be passed out, s’mores will be made, and friendship pins exchanged.

In the footsteps of John Muir

(After Camp, older campers)

Did you know that more street names and landmarks in California are named after John Muir than anyone else? Campers will go back in time to 1838 and walk in the footsteps of Californian Naturalist legend, John Muir. After learning about the life of John Muir through his writings and journal entries, After Campers will learn wilderness survival skills, sneak up on squirrels and observe them, make lanterns, build forts, play games, float rafts, and write a small journal entry in Muir’s similar writing style.

Adventures in Song and Story

On April 7, 2015 Southland Sings is presenting Adventures in Song and Story to ALL of our Nature Campers! In this two person, musical assembly, children will learn a dance with Hansel and Gretel, meet the Three Little Maids from the Mikado, lament with the dear, sweet, evil stepsisters because Cinderella stole their prince, and sing a song with Maria from The Sound of Music!
