All Creatures Furry and Feathered

All Creatures Furry and Feathered (Rising 4th-6th Graders)

Learn all about mammals and birds in this fun-filled hands-on creature camp! This summer, we will meet birds and furry creatures of all shapes and sizes, living and preserved.  Mornings will be spent doing hands-on experiments and making scientific observations.  Each afternoon we will relax at the pool, create a themed snack and review the activities of the day through interactive games and activities.  The week will end with a trip to Dauset Trails to test our avian and mammalian knowledge! Please note that a signed waiver of liability and emergency contact form are required. Participants will need to bring their own lunch, water bottle and bug spray. You will also need to bring a swim suit, towel and sunscreen as we will go to the pool daily if weather permits.
