Berks Nature
Summer Learning Program: Berks Nature Eco-Camp - Weather All Around US

Note: This is the first of a two-week weather camp for grades 5-8. The second week will take place July 22-26th.
We will learn about weather in and around our wetlands and collect weather data for NASA’s GLOBE program (Global Learning an Observations to Benefit the Environment), as we welcome a visit from a NASA scientist this week! All campers will learn how to make clouds, and detect the different types of clouds and the amount of cloud cover in the sky. Older campers will track the weather all week long, before continuing with the unique the following week and digging a little deeper in to their learning.

Preschool: Campers will learn about basic weather and do experiments using water in all states (liquid, solid, and steam). We will experience clouds through hands-on activities, including making our own clouds in a bottle.

K-4 and 5-8: We will learn the basics of weather and climate, and participate in the activities mentioned above. In addition, we will create our own weather forecasts, which we will film using the wetlands as a backdrop. Together, we will use scientific instruments and dig in to the soil and water to find answers to weather conditions. Older campers will collect in-depth data and upload it to a website viewable to citizens and scientists around the world.

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