151 Awesome Summer Camp Nature Activities
Can your nature program use some new ideas?
Is it all feeling a little repetitive?
Is it difficult to keep your campers engaged during nature activities?
Could your time be better spent on other things rather than programming?
Nature programs are difficult to run. You want them to be educational but also entertaining. Many campers will groan about having to go to nature class while at camp. Why? Because it usually isn’t that much fun, and, unless you’re running an educational camp, the kids are there to have a good time.
This book holds 151 ideas that have been tested and submitted by many camp professionals. These 151 program ideas were chosen because they are unique, fun, creative and most can be done at either a day camp or overnight camp.
What is your time worth? Learn what has worked for other camps. This book will save you many hours coming up with new program ideas to keep your return staff and campers excited and engaged.
