Mammals of Michigan

*Limited Spaces Left* AM Session (9am-12pm): June 12-16

PM Session (1pm-4pm): July 24-28

Cuddly and cute? Let’s find out! Our furry friends are more than just a pretty face; they are uniquely adapted to survive right here in Michigan. We will spend the week venturing out for a glimpse into the lives of squirrels, deer, bats, and raccoons!

The Art of Nature

AM Session (9am-12pm): June 19-23

PM Session (1-4pm): July 31-August 4
The beauty of our environment provides the inspiration and materials for this camp where we will paint with pond water, build sculptures, make music, and more. Campers supply the energy and play to transform nature into art!

Nature’s Master Builders

*FULL* AM Session: (9am-12pm):

June 26-30

PM Session: (1pm-4pm): August 7-11
The natural world is constantly ‘under construction’ by busy builders like termites, spiders, beavers, and bees. Find out how these creatures create and alter the world around them, and see if you have what it takes to build like they do.

Down by the Pond

PM Session (1pm-4pm): July 17-21

Make a splash with our aquatic friends! You will spend your time by the water, searching for critters that live in the water, and getting up close and personal with the turtles, frogs, and fish that call Fenner home.
