Down by the Pond

June 26-30

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.


The Art of Nature

July 10-14
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!



Gross Nature

July 17-21
Sometimes nature is downright disgusting! Slime, sludge, and sticky situations abound in this camp, where we will spend the week exploring and expelling myths about creepy critters and gross natural phenomena that are often misunderstood.


Wilderness Rangers

July 24-28
It’s a wild world out there, so come along and see if you have what it takes to survive! Learn the fundamentals of shelter building, fire starting, water purification, and navigating in the back country while you set out to survive in the wilderness.

Prairie Homestead

August 7-11

Step back in time and become a homesteader! Experience what it was like to live on the prairie. Play hide and seek in the tall grasses, practice the 3 R’s of a one-room schoolhouse, and try your hand at making goods to trade or use on the homestead. This weeklong camp will have you experiencing the true homestead life.
