June Mini-Camp in Nature

Preschool is out……it’s time for June Mini-Camp! Join us for fun and learning in the sun at our outdoor STEM program.

Your child will spend the week being a nature detective, learning about the plant and animal wildlife around Sheldrake’s 60 acres.

Time will be spent exploring the natural world, listening to nature stories, crafting, and playing games.

A Typical Day at Camp

Camp sessions will be held outside, rain or shine, so students should dress accordingly.

During a typical camp day, children go on an outdoor discovery walk to explore the 60-acre conservancy property, engage in hands-on ecology lessons, and search for signs of animals.

Campers will enjoy a nature-themed story time, do a nature craft, and have a snack.
