What's covered?

Campers spend a week traveling to local wildlife locations within Centre County to study species, hike through the woods and meadows, search for salamanders, turtles, and other insects, birds, fish, and animal species.  This camp fosters an understanding of the connection that local fluora and fauna have with energy consumption and the footprint we are leaving behind. The camp offers a daily "creature feature" and opportunities to discuss and study note guides and connecting concepts regarding ecology. 

Lunch and Snacks

  • Activity breaks will be taken each day to allow kids to eat their peanut free snacks that they brought from home.
  • Campers should pack a peanut free lunch Monday through Friday.
