    New for 2020 - A different theme and hands-on activities each week! Three Brand New Sessions. Register for one, two, or all three. 

    June 15 - 19 Outrageous Organisms: Florida’s Curious Critters

    Explore the wilds of Florida to learn more about local critters (big and small), fascinating plants and “invasive” species that are not “true Floridians.” Campers will have fun learning how to identify key animals and plants, track wild critters, safely handle live specimens, recognize non-local and dangerous plants and animals, and more!

    June 22 - 26 Technology Through the Years: from Spears to Rockets

    Learn how technology has changed through the ages. Campers will be surprised to see how much things have changed over the years. We begin in ancient times learning important skills such as pottery making, spear throwing and archery. By the end of the week campers are making weather predictions using computers and measuring dissolved oxygen in the Silver River!

    June 29 - July 3 Wild Survival: How Native Americans and Pioneers Lived off the Land

    Campers learn in depth what it took for early Floridians to make a living off the land. Creating shelter, collecting food, finding your way, avoiding danger, farming and making your own tools and toys were important skills. This hands-on session includes both Native American and pioneer activities that are fun and interesting.
