Discover fishing in our state’s lakes, streams, ponds, and a piece of the Atlantic Ocean. Learn successful techniques and clever tricks that will help you catch the big ones! Set off on a different adventure and location each day. Depending upon the weather, your camper will visit different destinations each day and experience a saltwater boat excursion.
Learn how birds and beasts catch their prey! Flow through the food chain and discover how animals and insects adapt to life on our planet. Explore how a change in the wind, water, and temperature affects all of Earth’s inhabitants. Build wooden birdhouses, dissect owl pellets, and learn how animals navigate the world using scent trails. Campers will also build a bug house to observe critters and identify animals by making plaster animal tracks.
