This summer, West Michigan Academy of Environmental Science has several opportunities for children to attend exciting and educational summer camps. There are four different camps taking place throughout the summer; Overnight Survival Camp, Macro Invertebrate Mania, Where the Wild Things Are, and Great Garden Adventures.
Overnight Survival Camp will teach campers about edible and medicinal plants, making rope out of tree bark, and building a fire out of natural materials. Then campers get to spend the night in a hand-made shelter in the woods.
At Macro Invertebrate Mania, campers will use several techniques to catch and identify bugs, and determine the health of many different ecosystems.
Where the Wild Things Are is about all things WILD! Campers will enjoy games and songs while they discover the wild things in nature.
For the campers interested in gardening, Great Garden Adventures is the right choice. Campers start each day doing garden work and having some fun with the chickens. They will also help harvest and prepare fruits and vegetables for eating.
We also have a variety of free Preschool summer camps taking place between July 13-July 30.To find out the dates and more information about attending, you can download the brochure at http://www.wma-es.com/parents-a-students/summer-camps.
