"Hooray for Habitats!"
Oceans, Wetlands, Deserts, Grasslands and Woodlands

Campers will enjoy hands-on experiments, games, centers and activities about the following topics:
       
   

Oceans: 

This will be an ocean adventure the campers will never forget! They will learn about waves, currents, and tides as well as ocean life and habitats. Everyone loves ocean animals!

 

 
   

Wetlands: 

Students will "visit" wetlands that they help to build (plus the wetlands across the street from the church for older kid) as they examine water animals like turtles, crayfish, minnows, clams, tadpoles, etc. Experiments help the children to understand the value of the wetlands to many types of animals and plants.

 
   

Deserts: 

Students learn about the plants and animals that live in the desert. Seeing desert animals such as snakes and lizards is awesome! Students go on a treasure hunt for jewels and also experiment to learn about survival in the desert.

 
       
   

Grasslands: 

Students make predictions about the sun and then perform many experiments to test the importance of the sun on plants and animals. Insect studies and traps provide valuable information about what lives near your home. Very fun to chase those insects in the field!

 

 

 
   

Woodlands: 

Adopting a tree, setting up photosynthesis experiments, and learning about woodland animals bring wonder to a child's face! Children "call" birds and study their importance in the food chain. A camouflage hunt for strategically placed toy animals is big fun!
