Arcadia Nature Day Camp provides an ideal atmosphere for children to have fun while learning about nature. Campers discover the world around them through hikes, games, and crafts. Each day focuses on a different natural history theme such as birds, plants, or mammals. Each session includes a day hike, expedition day, and an all-camp game of predator/prey. Each day will begin with a group circle along with a theme-related skit, puppet show, or story. Campers will then take a discovery hike and return to conclude with a craft or other project.
Hummingbird campers learn about the different ecosystems that exist at Arcadia and what plants and animals live in them. They begin their initiation to the natural world through short hikes, hands-on activities, and sensory awareness games.
