Summer Nature Camp 2014

Blandy's Summer Nature Camp is offered each July.  Individual camps last one week, Monday through Friday, from 9 a.m. to noon.  We offer two camps for rising 2nd-4th graders and one camp for rising 5th-8th graders.

Camps for younger children focus on a central theme, with supporting activities, experiments, and crafts.  Camps address topics such as ecology, geology, wetlands, nature and art, and weather.  Themes for summer 2014 are "Lost & Found: Natural Mysteries" (July 7-11) and "Eagle Eyes & Dragonflies" (July 14-18).

Rising 5th-8th graders enroll in the more investigative EcoExplorers (July 21-25).  Participants work in pairs to identify a scientific question, collect appropriate field data, and analyze their results.  On the last day, they present their findings to other campers, parents, and Blandy students and staff.
