In collaboration with WTTW’s Nature Cat and Five River MetroParks, Ava and friends will connect kids to the great outdoors through six nature camp themes: Getting Ready for Camp, Exploring Creeks,Exploring the Forest, Art in Nature, Nature in the City, and Animal Ambassadors.
Getting Ready for Camp
Welcome to Explore the Outdoors virtual camp! Today we will meet camp counselor, Ava, where she will help you get ready for our camp experience!
Let’s explore! Come and discover where creeks begin and follow a stream to see what lives there.
Exploring the Forest
Forests are ecosystems that can be found almost everywhere. Come explore with us and see what WE can find in a forest!
Art in Nature
Nature is so creative! Today we’ll explore the art of patterns, shapes and colors found in nature. We’ll also create beautiful nature art with items found outdoors.
Nature in the City
Today we are going to explore nature in the city and challenge YOU to explore it too!
If you are wild about animals, you will really like today’s camp! We are going to meet some of the animals that live in our forests and see many of them up close!
