Fall Break Nature Camp

It’s Alive!!!

Fall Break Nature Camp focuses on all things living in the chaparral, forest, meadow, and stream ecosystems.  Campers explore life from the ground up, learn about insects and other arthropods, examine the diversity of plant life, and learn about the many animals that live in the Central Highlands.  Nature Camp is a fun-filled five days of making friends, learning, games, crafts, and creek exploration.  Come explore with us!

Camps are offered for ages 6-12.
