Children are invited to have fun and learn while exploring the wonders of nature at the Endless Mountains Nature Center’s Nature Day Camp this summer.
The camp has a variety of programs for children pre-K to sixth grade, as well as a Counselors-in-Training program for those in grades seven through 12. Sessions began the week of June 24-28, and continue through the week of August 12-16.
New this year is the option for second grade students to attend full or half day sessions.
During Nature Day Camp, children learn about the wonders of the natural world through games, hikes, meeting the live education animals, guided exploration of the river and forest, listening to and making up stories, making crafts, creating a journal and role play. Throughout the summer conservation and wildlife professionals visit the campers to share their knowledge and experiences.
Camp sessions will be held at two locations. The main site is west of Tunkhannock at the end of Vosburg Road. It’s located on over 350 acres along the Susquehanna River owned by Camp Lackawanna. The Nature Center has 11 miles of trails winding along the Susquehanna River and through the forest and fields. Keystone College in Factoryville has acres of forest, with wooded trails, lawns and access to the South Branch of Tunkhannock Creek.
