Summer Camp 2023

Ages 3-7

Become a citizen scientist this summer! Learn about native plants, critters, birds, bugs, water systems and more in a play-centered and child-led environment! Over our 6 week program, kids will develop a basic foundation of PNW knowledge through lessons on native plants and critters and learning about the relationships and cycles of water and life. Most importantly though, they’ll build a deep connection with nature, becoming advocates for the health of our world. Weekly activities will include nature activity books, crafts, and hands-on lessons related to our weekly theme. 


Native Plant Week

July 3rd - 7th

Children will gain knowledge of the many wonderful native plants of the PNW! During this week, kids will develop a basic understanding of the life cycle and properties of plants, what's edible and what's not, and the many uses they have to offer us! 


Bird Week

July 10th - 14th

It doesn't take much to become a bird enthusiast! We will spend this week learning how to observe and identify birds. Through sit spots, learning how to use binoculars, and gaining the skills necessary to understanding bird language, your child will become a mini ornithologist! 


Bug Week

July 24th - 28th

This week our focus is on these tiny magnificent creatures we call bugs! Ok, technically worms, snails, and spiders are not considered bugs, but when it comes down to it these creepy crawlers are truly amazing and we need to learn more! We will learn about pollinators and how beneficial they are to our world, how to ID bugs we come across, how to handle them, and what we can do to help them thrive.


Critter Week

July 17th - 21st

We will spend this week learning about the local critters who live in our area. Not only will kids learn about the lifestyle and ways of the squirrels, coyotes, and more, they will also learn how to care for our shared spaces, develop tracking skills, and how to react when encountering these critters.  


Decomposition Week

July 31st - August 4th

We will spend our time together learning all about the process of decomposition. From the magical world of fungi to the slimy world of earth worms, we will learn how everything on this planet breaks down to build back a healthier and happier world! We will spend our time exploring nurse logs, learning the structure of mushrooms, and developing a basic understanding of the natural breakdown process.


Water Week

August 7th - 11th

Finishing our summer off with a splash, kids will gain the knowledge needed to understand the basic systems of water on our planet. Learning about our local watershed, how to care for our local waterways and how to advocate for clean water so humans, animals and plants can thrive.
