Science and Nature Camps

For the second week of camp, Zachary attended the same camp as Gabbie. In the morning, he did science while she learned all about babysitting, and in the afternoon they both did nature camp (they did this last year as well and it is a great program!).

I attended the open houses for all 3 subjects, starting out in Zachary’s science class. The week’s theme was weather and Zachary learned all about hurricanes, tornadoes, clouds, rainbows, etc. The class watched weather videos featuring my brother – he is a meteorologist at the Weather Channel.

Babysitting open house was mainly just a discussion of the things they learned in class. The afternoon nature camp open house was just as fun as I remembered, with plenty of animals to see and touch!

It makes me happy that my kids love animals and they really enjoyed their week of camp!

I certainly don't like snakes in the wild, but this one was kind of cool!
