Join us in our brand new Kits and Cubs Day Camp for kids ages 3-6! In this camp, kids will be encouraged to explore the wonders of nature through stories, games, crafts, and activities that will get them outdoors and moving. Everyday will introduce a new topic to the campers while building on the knowledge from the day before with fun and informative lessons created by NorthWoods staff, Growing Up WILD, and the National Wildlife Federation. Our first day of camp jumps right into it with Forest Skills, where campers will get to know one another and the NorthWoods forest with a sensory walk along one of our trails, a few games, and an investigation of art and music using different parts of trees. On Tuesday, we have Playing in the Pond day where our focus will be on exploring the NorthWoods pond – splashing around, catching the insects that call the water home, and learning about their life cycles. Next we’ll have Wildlife Wednesday, centered around all the cool animals that call Vermont home. Through bug catching, birding, and plenty of games campers will learn more about the animals they share their world with. Then on Thursday, our day will be filled with stories and songs by special guests from the Abenaki Nation. And finally on Friday we will have an end-of-camp celebration featuring a short hike through Brighton State Park and a beach day at Island Pond! All participants must be potty-trained.
Location: NorthWoods Stewardship Center, 154 Leadership Dr, West Charleston, VT
