UW Arboretum Earth Focus Summer Camps

UW Arboretum Earth Focus Day Camps

9 year old daughter gives "2 Thumbs up" to these Arboretum camps!

Earth Focus Day Camp (EFDC) consists of three programs: Learning Together, Explorers and Eco-Trekkers. The goals of EFDC are to develop an understanding of how the natural world works, to foster an appreciation for nature, and to nurture the sense of awe and wonder for the natural world.

EFDC 2009 will explore habitats, plants, animals and other ecological principles as we celebrate the 75th Anniversary of the Arboretum. Sessions will explore the past, present and future
in age appropriate activities. The summer will conclude with a birthday celebration and a night hike.

Camp activities will include outdoor discovery hikes and observations, hands-on science experimentations, and nature free play. If you have been to camp in past years look for new and exciting experiences. Campers are encouraged to ask questions, play, share, create, discover, construct and cooperate with each other.

Campers must come prepared to spend time outdoors. They must have long pants, hats and closed-toe shoes. Mid-morning snacks are provided.
