NATURE EXPLORERS FALL CAMP

Nature Explorers Camp is all about getting your child outside for a hands-on exploration of nature. Bring your camper to Palomino Drive Park for three days of fun during the Fall Break. Campers will explore the park, learn exciting facts, and enjoy the great outdoors. Our activities are designed to keep your camper engaged, learning, and having a blast throughout the entire camp. These will include themed outdoor games, fishing, crafts, and experiments. Each day will be comprised of different activities, and campers will need to bring a bag lunch, drink, and snack each day. This Fall Camp will be focused on the colors of change. Fall is known not just for the changing of weather, but the changing of colors.
