Every summer we try something new, and this is what we came up with this year. Camp Yucky was such a success last summer that we decided to borrow some of the ideas from the Olympic day and turn it into a full week camp. We will be playing classic recess type games like capture the flag, kick the can, red rover, ultimate Frisbee, and more. Kids will learn how to play fair, new games, and new techniques to improve their play. The more they learn and the better they become at the games the more they will want to play them outside. Remember when we played outside at recess? Play like a kid….all week long! Sorry parents, completed K-5th only J
Find out what it takes to care for Tanglewood’s exhibits and 40+ species of resident animals. During this exciting hands-on experience, campers will feed, care for and handle amphibians, reptiles, birds, mammals and arthropods. Campers will learn about the habitats, diet and behavior of local and exotic wildlife. We will also hike, play games and create projects that will enrich our animal’s lives.
This camp is focused on learning wilderness survival basics and practicing them daily. Campers will have opportunities to practice fire making, personal safety skills, and shelter construction. Campers will also learn how to find safe water and food and how to navigate through the wilderness. Learn all of the skills throughout the week and receive a completion certificate.
Fairies (girls) and sprites (boys) who dream of being like Peter Pan or Tinkerbell should not miss this week. Glitter, magic wands, magic fairy houses, and fun will all be a part of this whimsical week. Make fairy and sprite houses, wear fairy and sprite wings, and create a lot of related crafts. Hear some magical stories, and dream about flying while you laugh, learn, and enjoy a week of fantasy.
