‘Afterschool Nature Camp’ returns to Silver Lake Nature Center

For 10 Thursdays this fall (September 15th through November 17th), six- to 12-year-olds are invited to explore the Silver Lake Nature Center, learn about the habitats and creatures found there, play nature-related games, learn survival skills, keep a nature journal, and more! You’ll do all this while having a lot of fun and making new friends and memories.

Nature campers are asked to bring a refillable water bottle, and to also wear clothes and shoes that they do not mind getting wet and/or dirty. It is also recommended to dress in layers to make sure all are prepared for the range of weather and temperatures since you will be outside most of the time every session.
