Walk on the Wild Side Camp Week 1
June 29th- July 3rd K-2 & 3-5 Sessions
Start your summer out right by taking a walk on the wild side! This camp will embrace all that is wild at Tanglewood, from the tops of the trees to deep in the dirt and everything in between! Discover how our ecosystems work and all that inhabits them. Campers will dissect owl pellets, use binoculars to look for birds, capture bugs and identify them, inspect a fallen log, and much more! Each day is a new theme and campers enjoy live animals, crafts, games, hikes and exploration.
