Half Day Camps
Butterflies and insects transform through metamorphosis. Amphibians complete two life stages beginning in water with gills and ending on land with lungs. Other creatures transform their bodies through camouflage, mimicry, molting, shedding, limb regeneration, and more. Join us this summer and learn how plants, animals, land, and water transform! Through scientific experiments, hands on activities, and crafts students will learn how to recognize and understand transformations in nature. Activities will include live animal encounters daily, extreme screen movies, exhibit exploration, games, hikes, and crafts!
