Each day at Young Explorers camp, children will explore the field station with our naturalists and learn about the plants and animals that live in the northern Virginia Piedmont. In the afternoon, children will enjoy crafts and games that will expand their knowledge of ecology and the environment. Campers will gain a deep understanding of our natural surroundings and the confidence they need to continue spending time outdoors for years to come. We will do a different set of activities each week so campers can have interesting and enriching experiences by coming to either week individually or both weeks. Families are welcome and encouraged to register for both weeks but must pay for each session separately. Students will bring their own snacks and lunches from home.
Ages: 7-12 at the time of camp.
Cost: $215.00. Please note that the ticket will appear as “Free” until registration opens.
