Summer Learning Program: Berks Nature Eco-Camp - Finding and Making Tracks

Reduce, reuse, recycle! This week, we will tackle some cool science experiments that are backed by science principles, as well as create our own junk art out of the items we recycle. Additionally, we will kick off our famous boat race, and egg drop extravaganza on the Schuylkill River Bridge. The week will end with a pool party at the Ken Grill Pool in nearby Kenhorst.

Preschool: Our younger campers will see first-hand some really cool experiments, as well as team up with the older kids on fun science projects.

K-4 and 5-8: Campers will focus on the creation of fun art projects and creative take-home junk art, made out of items brought from home or collected at The Nature Place. Older campers will conduct scientific experiments, create junk art, and design and carry out actual STEM-type projects. The inventions created will be displayed in the lobby of The Nature Place.

Special Excursion: Ken Grill Pool. We will cool off with a Ken Grill Pool Party, from 12:00pm to 3:00pm on Wednesday, June 26, 2020. Campers will walk to the pool on the mile-long trail, and will be able to buy lunch at the pool and enjoy time with camper friends.

Campers should bring their own lunch. Some snacks are provided.
