What's Included

All living things need shelter to survive. Campers will discover how animals make shelter while we challenge ourselves daily to make the best human shelters out of natural materials. We’ll be inspired by the variety of animal shelters we discover in our forest and we’ll help our animal friends by building owl nesting boxes, bat boxes, and other animal homes. We will discover animal shelters high and low as we roll logs, turn over rocks, and find nests hidden in the canopy. Finally, we’ll play lots of “camouflage” and other hiding games as we learn how animals stay hidden in their homes so well!
