Theme Weeks

Farmer’s Market

We will be taking the “farm to table” concept and re-create it here in our garden. Campers will get to know the basics of gardening, caring for their gardens, and harvesting. We will then hold our own Children’s business Fair where our campers will put their entrepreneur hats on and sell their goods to the community later on in the camp season.

River Critters

June 24th – June 28th

Mill River Park is home to many animals and this week is all about exploring their habitats, their behaviors, and other unique facts about them.

Junior Stewards

Campers will learn about what it is to be good stewards of their environment and communities. Recycling, composting, and conservation are just a few things we will cover this week.

Water Waze

We are diving into a week about oceans, rivers and other bodies of water and how keeping these waterways clean are important specifically for the Long Island Sound.

This week is about winged animals and insects alike.  We will cover birding, pollinator explorations and the plants that rely on them.

Things are getting hairy! Join us as we explore the characteristics of mammals, identifying mammals, and more!

Kids vs Wild
