Nature Camp Week 1
June 20, 2016 @ 9:30 am - 3:30 pm
- Solar System/Earth
- Farm Systems
- Green Living
- Community Building
Ages 6-12. The hours of camp are from 9:30am until 3:30pm within the week of June 20 to June 24, with early drop off starting at 8am and late pick up at 4:30pm. We do offer half days upon request but we encourage the campers to be signed up for the full day in order to get the best experience.
The campers will be able to learn about environmental and biological sciences within the beauty of our native plant garden in San Jose. They will have access to our chicken coop, aquaponics system and our amazing pizza oven, which we will use every Friday for lunch. The kids will participate in games, art activities, and open discussions in order to learn about the natural environment of the Earth. The week will start off with the bigger topics like the Solar System, Earth and Ecosystems and then move on to the smaller topics like Plants/Animals and Gardening. Our teaching method is focused on showing the kids the interconnected processes of the natural world. We end the week learning about the importance of a strong community and how to be a proactive citizen.
Some of the activities that the kids will participate in is building a mini aquaponics system, planting seeds, creating a terrarium, field trip to an urban farm, drawing & creative writing, and tons of interactive games to get the campers thinking about the information.
The campers will also be served a vegetarian lunch alongside snacks every day made with local ingredients (some even coming from our garden!). The kids will learn to prepare their own food every day by harvesting/chopping up ingredients, making beverages like lemonade, and even decorating their own pizza every Friday. Campers should feel free to bring their own lunch if desired.
The price for a full day week of camp is $306. Please write your child’s name and age when registering for camp.
Half day prices available upon request. Email email@example.com for more information.
Hope to see you all there! Please feel free to email Ferrin Reidinger, the Camp Director, if you have any questions at all.
