CECI Summer Nature Camp:
The smart way to have fun!
At CECI summer camps, children discover the wonders of nature together. They'll explore our 5 acre campus during a week of sensory outdoor fun! We meet animals, examine natural artifacts, play games and sing songs – it’s a wholesome way to discover the natural world.
Each week features a different fun-filled program that will broaden your child's mind and stimulate their senses.
Camp Programs - 2017
Week 1 - May 30-June 2 - Shadows
Campers will explore light and dark through flashlight play, shadow puppets and fun! What other things produce shadows? (Note: This is a 4-day session. We will be closed May 29)
Week 2 - June 5-9 - Wiggly Worms
Your child will love digging in the dirt as we explore the world of worms. Where does soil come from? How do plants grow? What lives under a log? What do worms eat? Hands on activities answer these questions and more!
Week 3 - June 12-16 - Sensing Nature
Campers use all of their sense to experience the wonders of nature each day. We listen for bird calls, smell flowers, see wildlife, touch interesting plants and taste sweet berries. Campers also learn how different animals use their senses!
Week 4 - June 19-23 - Interesting Insects
What would it feel like to be as small as an ant? Let’s get out our magnifying glasses and take a closer look at insects that fly, float, and forage. What makes insects different from the rest of the smallest creatures around?
Week 5 - June 26-30 - Sticky Slimy Science
It’s time to make a mess. As we climb, build, and get messy, our miniature mad scientists will be learning measurement, physics, and chemistry in nature! Come make play-dough, float little boats, drop things from great heights, and much, much more! Join us this week to see science in action!
Week 6 - July 3-7 - Water Everywhere!
Plants and animals need water for many reasons. Find out why during this week of fun camp! Campers venture out to aquatic habitats for some muddy, squishy fun. Be prepared to get wet each day! (Note: This is a 4-day session. We will be closed July 4)
Week 7 - July 10-14 - Fun with Flowers
What happens in the garden? Investigate the life cycles of flowers by planting seeds and studying how they grow. Find native flower and learn the roles flowers play in our ecosystem: Why do flowers smell, and why are they so colorful? Campers will have fun seeing the different colors, shapes, and patterns all around our campus.
