Kids Camp! Nature Detectives July 23 – 26

July 23 @ 8:00 am - July 26 @ 12:00 pm

$80.00 – $100.00

Nature’s Detectives Summer Camp!
Are your kids crazy about nature?

Join us July 23 – 26
8 AM – 12 PM
Ages 6-10

Two spots just opened up!

It will be four days of discovery and outdoor based fun as we ponder why a Pika chirps? (or what even is a Pika) or how in the heck does an insect live underwater.

Nature’s Detectives Day Camp provides kids ages 6-10 an opportunity to engage in activities that promote  curiosity for our natural world, appreciation for plants and critters down to the tiniest insects, and a deeper connection to the Columbia Gorge as a home for many. Each day of camp will have a unique theme, with activities and play weaving topics of ecology, wildlife biology, outdoor preparedness and stewardship.

The grounds of the Columbia Gorge Discovery Center provide an amazing outdoor classroom, where time will be spent much of the week. Campers will have the opportunity to explore the Discovery Center and Museum  and grounds while they sleuth for clues.

A special bonus is time spent with our award winning Birds of Prey Program.

Your lead detectives are US Forest Service Ranger Alyssa Thornburg and Bambi Foy, Raptor Education Coordinator.
