FOR CHILDREN ENTERING GRADES 6TH-8TH

Investigate the ways that water is a source of power. Learn how different devices are used to extract useful energy from moving water. Build a waterwheel that can light a lightbulb, and replicate a tidal power station. Head over to L.L. Bean’s Outdoor Discovery School at Marsh Creek to learn the basics of stand up paddle boarding and then take a guided trip out on the lake.

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
