The Woodtick Nature Center located on 56 Deer Run Road in Wilton has announced a series of summer nature camps for kids. There are three levels of camps for kids that include one for ages 3 and 4, grades 1-6 and grades 7 and 8. The camps begin June 17 and run through August 16. Kids will have fun and make friends while exploring our 150-acre preserve as experienced environmental educators teach conservation and awareness of our natural environment through animal encounters, nature crafts, hiking, kayaking on our pond, wilderness skills and so much more.
The Nestlings for ages 3 and up includes “forest friends” to “turtle power”, each day is filled with live animals, arts and crafts, hikes, games, and age-specific activities focusing on our nature theme of the day. The camp runs Mon. – Fri. 9 am – 1 pm with weekly registration. Summer Nature Camp Scouts, Rangers and Explorers are for grades 1-6 and are Mon.-Fri. from 9:30 am – 3 pm. Kids will investigate nature through woodland expeditions, stream exploration, scavenger hunts, obstacle courses, wilderness games, live animals, and nature art! Summer uncharted is for kids in grades 7 and 8. This program runs 9:30 am – 3 pm. With 150-acres as the only limit, kids will wade, hike and explore our way through each week. Be prepared to ditch your trail map and venture into the wilderness at Woodcock!
