New! Full Day Summer Camp: Nature Detectives

August 1, 2016 @ 9:00 am - August 5, 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.

Do you have what it takes to be a Nature Detective? Grab a magnifying glass and other detective tools to explore the mysteries of nature. Each day will hold a new mystery to solve! We will perfect our detective skills to discover what lies beneath the river, which animals call the Natural Education Reserve home, and so much more! Each week includes a field trip or visit from a special guest. For ages 7-10. Cost: $40/day or $180/week.
