This year we are hosting a week of Winter Break Camp for students in grades K-2. Each day we’ll explore the outdoors and look for how things are changing with the arrival of colder weather. Who hibernates? Who migrates? Who stays around? Activities will include themed games and crafts to help us connect to our understanding of the natural world in winter.
Get ready for a week filled with fun and adventure in the great outdoors! Discovery Camp programs are based on the philosophy that young people benefit from experiences in the outdoors. It is the mission of the Arboretum’s dedicated and experienced Discovery Camp educators to cultivate a sense of adventure and wonder in the outdoors, foster an enthusiasm for exploration in the natural world, and promote environmental awareness, stewardship and conservation. We’re proud to have won first place for Best Nature Camp in Mountain Xpress’ Best of WNC 2017 awards!
