Full Description

2019 Summer Day Camps
Kids in MudIf your child attends summer camp, he or she will be immersed in Iowa’s native prairie, forest, and wetland environments and we will spend as much time in the great outdoors as possible. There will be many hikes, crafts, nature-themed games and we may even be in the water one day. Your child will probably get dirty, wet and possibly muddy, which are all things that cannot be experienced staring at a screen. This is the way we like it and research has shown these types of activities are great for your child’s psyche and development.
