Tadpoles and Chipmunks

Ages 3-5

The youngest campers discover the wonders of the natural world through age appropriate hands-on activities, including nature walks, stories, crafts, music, and meeting live animals. These young campers use their senses to participate in activities which encourage sharing, learning together, and being a friend to nature.  These groups meet behind the Science Center next to the owl enclosure at picnic tables. On rainy days, they are based in one of the preschool rooms but will go outside for rainy walks! Both of these locations offer easy access to the preschool bathroom and the Camp Director’s office.
