2022 Week-by-Week Program Descriptions
+Indicates LIT Weeks
Week 1 June 27-July 1 Survivor: What would it take to find food, water, and shelter in the woods? Try cooking over a fire, building shelters, and finding your way as you learn wilderness skills that will help you stay out of survival mode and focus on the fun.
+Week 2 July 5-8 (short week, July 4 is Monday) Nature Narratives: Like to get caught up in a good story or enjoy inventing your own? Join us for a week of storytelling, games, and exploration as we tell stories about the world around us and learn about this amazing human adaptation.
+Week 3 July 11-15 Eco Artists: Nature in itself is a work of art. For this week, campers should be ready to paint, move, sculpt, sketch, and explore. This camp will bring out the science- and nature-loving artist in you. We will learn how the beauty of nature inspired many historic naturalists, and how it helps promote environmental stewardship today.
+Week 4 July 18-22 Creature Feature: From paws to feathers, scales and claws, get ready for a week of all things animals. Discover how different animals talk, eat, move and play as we explore Prescott Farm’s ponds, forest and fields to investigate what the animals are doing.
Week 5 July 25-29 Kids Can Cook: Join us for a week of culinary exploration and experimentation as we learn to prepare wholesome, healthy food from the garden to our plates. In addition to many fun, outdoor camp activities, participate in various food-related activities that will culminate in a cooking-show style cook off! Pizza, anyone?
+Week 6 August 1-5 Earth Detectives: Science isn’t only done in the lab. At Prescott Farm we do our experiments outside. Get hands-on with science to collect clues about how the Earth works. You might practice your detective skills by tracking animals, investigating artifacts, or collecting evidence about what is happening in the environment.
Week 7 August 8-12 Water, Water Everywhere: Join us for a week of water play while we explore the aquatic ecosystems of Prescott Farm and discover that everything needs water to survive. We’ll look for animals in the pond, get wet playing water games, and cap off the week with our very own slip and slide.
Week 8 August 15-19: STEAM Team: Science, technology, engineering, art and mathematics is our camp focus for the week! Come explore the way nature inspires human art, invention and design. Get ready to think, build and test your critical thinking skills!
Week 9 August 22-26 A Little Bit of Everything: Finding it difficult to decide which theme sounds like the most fun? Then, this week is for you! We’ll be mixing it up with a little bit of all the themes as we revisit our favorite camp activities. You may find us ponding, hiking, cooking, crafting, tracking, fort building, and playing games.
