In Bugs & Botany, boys will get to explore and learn about insects and plant life — growing in their love for the outdoors and adventure. Using a field journal, Campers will hone their observational skills and document their discoveries so they can share them with family at the end of each day.
WHY BUGS & BOTANY?
Experiential Learning is central to the camp. Daily trips to nearby forest preserves give campers an opportunity to interact with wildlife — developing the scientific skills of observation, documentation, and contemplation. These outdoor activities are supplemented by fun and exciting educational activities indoors. Other skills campers learn include:
NEW! Bugs and Botany will be available for two sessions this summer:
Session I — 5 Days — June 24-28; Monday to Friday.
Session II — 4 Days — July 8-11; Monday to Thursday.
The camp will not meet the Friday of the second session due to a wedding in Mr. Foster’s family. The session price is adjusted accordingly. Also please note that both camp sessions feature the same content.
