‘Captivating Camouflage’ will feature activities based around how animal camouflage works, specifically, marine animals and those located in the Back Bay.
“Campers will zero in on marine and wetland science topics in adventurous ways,” said Science Explorer Camp Director, Aimée Arvidson. “For Captivating Camouflage week, they will explore the mysterious adaptation of camouflage.”
Campers will have the opportunity to take part in thrilling activities such as using mud-grabbers, microscopes, canoes, binoculars, touch tanks, walk on the hiking trails, and see the plant nursery and marine life tanks. They will also have the opportunity to collect field data, explore the grounds, and adventure in the labs!
“Samantha has told me everything you guys have done each day,” said parent, Karen Neumann. “She loves the touch tank, the crafts, and the canoes. She said the ‘ENC is cool!’ which made me laugh! You guys have brought such wonderful experiences to the kids, and I just want to say Thank You.”
Since 1977, the ENC’s Nature Camp has provided quality science education in an outdoor, hands-on setting. This year’s Summer Nature Camp is divided into eight week-long sessions where campers will spend most of their time outside observing nature up close using tools like binoculars, magnifying lenses and microscopes.
“If your child loves adventures and science, they are sure to love Session 7 of Science Explorers Camp!” said Arvidson.
