Camp - Naturalists: CUBIC ECOSYSTEMS, July 23-27

Monday July 23

9:00 AM  –  3:00 PM


Be a field biologist for a week and study the organisms that make up one cubic foot of an ecosystem. Create a Bio-Cube and place it around Tyler. Use photos, wildlife cameras, drawings and field data to record your scientific findings. Visit the Schuylkill Center to learn about biodiversity. At the end of the week, bring your cube back to the “lab” and dissect it to see how diverse your cubic ecosystem really is.

Naturalists camps are designed for campers who are ready for a more in-depth experience, focusing on comprehensive activities, team building and off-site adventures. Youth will spend their days investigating the natural world, its inhabitants and the interconnectedness of nature. Counselors will ensure that each camper is challenging themselves in a positive and friendly atmosphere. Each week the group will embark on an off-site adventure and discover new strengths, while developing new skills. On Thursdays, campers will stay overnight and explore Tyler at night, with evening hikes, making s’mores by the campfire and sleeping out in tents in the Arboretum.  Camp hours are 9 a.m. - 3 p.m., with the exception of the Thursday to Friday overnight.  Campers should bring a mid-morning snack,  a packed lunch and water.  Dinner and breakfast are provided during overnights.  Offsite field trips are on Wednesdays. Members: $375 per week; Non-members: $425 per week
