Kettle Creek “Get in Touch with Nature“ Day Camp for 7-13 Year Olds
From Monday, August 5 through Friday, August 16, your child can spend one week or two with the experienced staff at the Kettle Creek Environmental Education Center “Getting in Touch with Nature”!
Campers will be split into age groups and will participate in age appropriate activities. We’ll explore the trails at the Kettle Creek Wildlife Sanctuary; learn about the critters, plants and habitats of the Poconos; venture to other cool places in Monroe County; splash around in the puddles, ponds and creeks at Kettle Creek and so much more! It’s a camp that you don’t want to miss. Activities may include: creek snorkeling, tie-dying, bird banding, off-site hikes, fossils, cool critter activities, nature hikes, pond and stream study, scavenger hunt, tree and plant exploration, citizen science projects, and more.
In this time when children are spending less time outside this camp will provide a multitude of learning opportunities under the guidance of trained professionals with years of experience. Hands-on activities combined with the resources of the EE Center provide a safe environment for a child interested in “Getting in Touch With Nature”.
