We’ve spent so much of the year cooped up inside, yearning to explore. Though our diligence has been for a good cause—flattening the curve and keeping our community safe—the idea of a summer carefully spent outside sure has it allure. That’s where the Summer Ecology Camp at the Kreher Preserve and Nature Center comes into the picture. If your child wants to step out into nature, he or she will love this chance to walk into the wild! The first camp begins on July 6—so let’s get started!
What can my child do at the Summer Ecology Camp?
The Summer Ecology Camp at the Kreher Preserve and Nature Center is a five-day-long outdoor camp. It includes programs for children in grades one to seven. Set in the local Louise Kreher Preserve and Nature Center, it hosts exciting features like:
- Fun fitness activities;
- Hikes in the area;
- Snack time;
- Lessons on the great outdoors;
- Potential wildlife sightings; and
- The chance for your child to make some new friends!
Additionally, if you and your kid want to make the most of this summer installation, you can sign your child up for multiple camps.
How much does the camp cost?
Before you purchase your tickets, remember: you need a membership to the Louise Kreher Preserve and Nature Center first. A five-day session at the Summer Ecology Camp at the Kreher Preserve and Nature Center costs $135 per child. You can also save $10 per ticket purchase if multiple kids from your home are attending. A T-shirt and a yummy snack per day are both included.
Where will the camp be held?
You can find the Summer Ecology Camp at the Kreher Preserve and Nature Center at 2222 North College St.
When will the camp be held?
This year, you can choose among four different sessions. They will run from:
- July 6 to 10;
- July 13 to 17;
- July 20 to 24; and
- July 27 to 31.
Each day begins by 8 a.m., so make sure to bring your child to camp around 7:45 a.m. You can pick your child up at 12 p.m. and hear all about the wonderful day he or she had!
