Event Description:

Creepy Crawly Safari – Half-day Camp
Ages 6-8 | $185

Try your hand at fishing in Mesa Creek to learn what kinds of insects, animals, and fish call it home. We’ll also investigate creepy crawly critters in the rest of the park to see who else depends on this watershed. From worms that wiggle to cork bobber boats that float, get ready for fishing fun. Hike from the creek to the mesa top! Games, songs, art, stories and adventure will be part of each day, helping us understand how to take care of the creepy-crawly members of our wild world.

What to Bring: For this half-day camp, please pack a snack and water bottle for your camper. Please pack any and all medications the campers may need in their original containers with prescriber notes. Campers will be outside so we recommend they put sunscreen on in the morning before camp. Also have your camper wear or bring a brimmed hat, rain jacket, tennis shoes or hiking boots. Campers will be outside exploring where creepy crawly things live so please send them in clothing you don’t mind getting wet and muddy. Sometimes an extra pair of socks can come in handy as well.
