FUN WORLD OF WATER

What could be more FUN than water in the summertime? Splash with your fellow campers or cool down on the slip and slide! This week will be full of water-ific delights! Discover the beauty of our local waterways through aquatic adventures like canoeing and kayaking. From beach exploration, to a plankton tow and water testing, this week is all about learning how to enjoy and protect the water you love so much. Kids will explore and play in an area that's being transformed into a beautiful natural state. We'll swim, dofish printing, look at tiny ocean life under microscopes, and learn about the watershed. We'll have time with the SeaQuarium (touch tank), and lots of Nature House activities and and outdoor games!
