Treehouse Club Camp
Treehouse Club campers will explore nature through exciting art projects and nature activities. Each day will begin in CA&NC’s George S. Bryan Discovery Forest Treehouse, followed by activities, crafts, and games with a daily nature theme!
Wolf Pack Camp
Wolf Pack campers will help prepare food for the nature center’s animal ambassadors and then watch them eat it, go on a canoe trip, visit the bamboo forest, and wallow in a mud pit. They will spend a day experiencing what it’s like to be a Native American child of long ago. Campers will enjoy five, fun-filled days of nature games, activities and crafts.
Junior Naturalist Camp
Junior Naturalist campers will experience first hand what it’s like to be a wild animal in an exciting predator / prey simulation game. They will also go canoeing and hike down Lookout Mountain. Campers will learn the tools of the trade practiced by great naturalists throughout history. Campers will participate in a full range of activities designed to bring natural history into their lives through science, crafts, live animal demonstrations, and of course, play!
Canoe beautiful Lookout Creek, go hiking to the base of the falls at the Lula Lake Land Trust, go on a wild cave tour at Raccoon Mt. Caverns, and discover the world of nocturnal animals! These are just a few of the activities that we have planned for Adventure Camp. We will also spend the night Thursday night at the nature center. There will be a campfire, fishing, storytelling and a nocturnal predator/prey game.
