Summer Camp Weekly Themes

Animals Yesterday, Today, and Tomorrow
Animals were thought of, understood, and used very differently in the past than they are today. Can you imagine what we will learn about animals in the future and how differently humans will think of them?! From wolves, to un-named guard dogs outside the home, to your best friend sleeping in your bed – Times have changed! Today we even have specially trained Seeing Eye dogs and Search and Rescue dogs. What does the future look like for these beloved animals?

Animal Mysteries and Discoveries
Did you know that a dog’s nose print is as unique as a human fingerprint? Full of mystery and wonder, our planet Earth becomes the classroom and animals assume the role of world’s best teacher. Let our feathered, furry, and scaly mentors inspire thought, knowledge and awe in your camper. When change is the only constant there are always MYSTERIES to explore and DISCOVERIES to make!
