Half Day Summer Camp: Bugs, Grubs & Slugs

July 18, 2016 @ 9:00 am - July 22, 2016 @ 12:00 pm

$20 – $95

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 ready to find some new friends! Slimy friends, friends that fly, friends with hundreds of eyes, and of course some new human friends, too! At this week of insect camp, we’ll spend the week on a mini-mission learning about, catching, and identifying all sorts of bugs! We’ll set traps, use nets, play games, and hike all over as we complete hands-on activities around the Natural Education Reserve. For ages 4-6. Cost: $20/day or $95/week.
