Explore the nooks and crannies of Arcadia as you search for plants and animals and the unique adaptations that help them thrive. Participate in real research projects, which might include monitoring vernal pools, identifying and recording animal tracks, or surveying bird boxes to see what species are using them. Climb aboard canoes and paddle the wetlands and waterways of Arcadia and see this special place from a unique and new perspective. Spend a day on a special expedition to nearby Mount Tom State Reservation where you will compare and contrast this natural area to Arcadia.

*Please note that families will need to provide drop-off and pick-up for their campers at Mount Tom for the day trip.

Instructions and Directions:

Camp will take place mostly outdoors with the exception of bathroom visits and extreme inclement weather. Campers should be dressed for all weather conditions, as well as wear both mosquito and tick prevention.
