Full Day Summer Camp: River Rangers (FULL – join our wait list below)

July 11, 2016 @ 9:00 am - July 15, 2016 @ 3:00 pm

$40 – $180

Summer is a great time to be outside discovering the natural beauty that surrounds us here in Northern Michigan. Summer also presents a perfect opportunity to engage your child in a different kind of learning—the kind that lasts a lifetime and doesn’t require the internet or a text book. Our tried and true curricula of hands-on, outdoor experiences will inspire your child’s innate curiosity, creativity and empathy for the plants, animals and ecosystems that elevate Northern Michigan among the most beautiful places on earth.

Get set to discover the wonders of nature along the Boardman River!  Learn about the flow of water in rivers and collect samples of water, fish, sediments, and woody debris from the Boardman.  Look at macroinvertebrates under a microscope and learn about keeping the river healthy for all! Rangers will complete their week-long mission and make new friends, create, and explore the natural world above and below the surface. We will be taking a field trip to our secret fishin’ hole. Each week includes a field trip or visit from a special guest. For ages 7-10. Cost: $40/day or $180/week. 

This session is full, but join our wait list here!
