Adventures in Nature

Girls Learning In Adventures in Nature Camp

Adventures in Nature is a day camp offered every summer and seasonally throughout the school year.

Children in grades K through 8 have the opportunity to explore a wide variety of museum topics—Earth's features, creatures, and cultures from around the globe. Enroll your children in our hands-on, interactive classes and they will learn about fascinating topics through active encounters that spark children's natural curiosity and creativity.
