More Information

Participants will explore what makes reptiles and amphibians so unique and how their adaptations help them survive. We will explore how these often misunderstood slimy and scaly friends are incredibly important to their habitats. As part of this program, we will make a home for an amphibian friend to place in a backyard. Participants will spend the morning doing experiments, exploring animal artifacts, making crafts, playing games and more.

This mini camp is a drop off opportunity for kids ages 7+.
