"My daughter is loving Sheldrake's nature camp. She had a great time looking at all the tiny creatures living in the pond. She has even taught me some fun facts about worms. The naturalist and counselors are fantastic." This is what Julia’s Mom wrote after her first week at Sheldrake Nature Camp. Another Mom wrote “The letters that went home were wonderful ways for us to reinforce the learning. One of the best programs she's done. Her teachers will remain in her memories for a long time!”
Each day of camp has a nature theme and is jam-packed with adventure, discovery and hours of fun…Children play games under the shade of a tree, find frogs at the edge of the pond, sing songs, roll over logs to learn how animals recycle, and listen to stories on the banks of the stream. Equipped with bug boxes, binoculars and nets, and using all their senses, children explore secret spots animals call home in the pond, meadow and forest.
