Nature and Science Camp

Poricy Camp gives children the opportunity to experience and explore the great outdoors. Each weekly camp focuses on a different nature-related theme. Campers’ days are filled with hands-on science investigations, experiments, stories, crafts, and lots of hikes. Ideas and activities are adapted to be irresistibly engaging for three age groups: Tadpoles (PreK age 3+, half day only), Froglets (K-1st), and Frogs (2nd-5th). Available for half day (9am-12am) or full day (9am-4pm).
