Critter, Yuck, And Outdoor Survival Summer Camps On Tap

25 May , 2017  

Summer camps at the Ohio Bird Sanctuary at this year are opportunities for fun and education, each with its own theme. Offered in three versions, the camps for 6 to 12-year-olds run from 9:00 AM to 1:00 PM each day.

This year’s offerings include:

“Critter Camp” June 12-14 or  19-21

This camp is for your animal-lovers! We’ll explore adaptations of, habitat for, and issues with all kinds of animals: mammals, reptiles, amphibians, insects, and birds (of course!)

“Yuck Camp” July 10-12

Think slimy, gooey, gross, and smelly! This camp will focus on some of the “yucky” aspects of nature: scavengers, decomposers, fungi, etc. We’ll turn over logs and muck in streams, so prepare to get a little dirty.

“Outdoor Survival Camp” July 31-Aug 2 or Aug 7-9

This camp focuses on primitive outdoor skills such as fire-building, shelter-building, water purification, and resource-gathering. We’ll also discuss orienteering skills and basic first aid on the trail.

All camps include outdoor games, hiking, nature crafts, and animal encounters. Snacks are provided, but participants should bring a packed lunch. Cost is $90 for each three-day camp. Online registration forms can be obtained here.
