Send your kids to the Heron Reserve Summer Camps 

NATURE CAMP

A week-long camp learning and playing in the unique wetland habitat of the Great Blue Heron Nature Reserve.  Instructors are our environmental educators at the reserve and are skilled at working with all age groups and helping kids understand the importance and wonder of nature.  Did you know that a frog swallows with it’s eyeballs or that a dragonfly spends much of it’s life living underwater and can eat it’s entire body weight in food in only 30 minutes?

We’ll also have fun sketching and drawing animals that we find outside as we explore the connection of art to the natural world.

COMBO ART/NATURE CAMP

In this camp, children get a mix of art and environmental education with half of the time spent with John LeFlock exploring different artistic techniques, and half of the time spent outside connecting to the unique habitat of the reserve.  

A combination of Wildlife Art and Nature Explorers, we are trying out two different things this year. July 8th through July 12th, we are doing an all ages (6 to 12), all day (9:30 to 3:30) where each child gets 3 hours of art instruction and 3 hours of outdoor education and play a day.  Art instruction includes some outdoor exploration as well.  July 29th through August 2nd, we are doing our standard half day camp (9:30 to 12:30), where each child does 1.5 hours of art and 1.5 hours of outdoor exploration and kids are divided into two different age groups (5 to 8 and 9 to 14)
