Camp Yucky (K-2)                             

June 27th – June 30th   (no camp on Friday!)

  • Explore the muddy, slimy, oozy, and sometimes yucky side of science
  • Dissect an owl pellet while learning about digestion
  • Meet Tanglewood’s collection of creepy crawlies
  • Learn how to find animals based on animal tracks and scat
  • This camp is ideal for kids who don’t mind getting a little messy and are ready for hands-on nature adventures!

Start your summer out right by taking a walk on the wild side! This camp will embrace all that is wild at Tanglewood, from the tops of the trees to deep in the dirt and everything in between! Discover how our ecosystems work and all that inhabits them. Campers will dissect owl pellets, use binoculars to look for birds, capture bugs and identify them, inspect a fallen log, and much more! Each day is a new theme and campers enjoy live animals, crafts, games, hikes and exploration.
